Nature and The Harmony of Life
Many years ago, especially in the East, people were in tune with nature. Nature’s harmony and the human happiness were considered one. What happened outside of us, happened within. But now, with time and technology, we have lost touch. Concrete has replaced trees, paint has replaced grass and billboards advise us rather than the deeper sentiments of our own intuition. As our culture evolves into the future, we see the signs of how our world and it’s people will suffer the separation from nature. As the pace speeds up, pharmaceuticals replace integrity, righteousness replaces kindness. We will suffer more and more from the separation from working with the land. We must try to reconnect, to understanding her (natures) rhythm and acknowledge the world of nature for her sustenance. As we modernize, we seem to move away from harmony with nature, this breeds disrespect but worst of all, we become disconnected from her teachings.
Innerwealth is about the opportunity to re connect with the harmony of nature and in so doing reconnect with what is natural within us. The true power of the human spirit is harmonious, interconnected and very much alive.A rhythm exists in the deepest levels of our being. The person who attunes themselves both externally and internally to what is natural, will possess an insight to the essence of the whole universe. This harmony, this rhythm, is a capacity that could change the world. Great composers, artists and inventor's have always had the capacity to be authentic, to cut past the surface and dwell, even for moments at the depth of what is natural.Every person in the world should train themselves to depend on themselves as much as possible.
Societies are based on interdependence of people and this is healthy; but in this interdependence there is dire need to be self aware, self driven and self conscious. Self awareness, is a trait that has not been cultivated in our society, but that is part of life. To be self aware is as important as to be generous. One makes you strong and the other makes you human. It is much easier to be generous if you are so selfish that it is no problem to be generous. Generosity from a minimal place is hypothetical.It is therefore the decree of nature to cultivate for people self-awareness. Make yourself a power in your day, if not in the world. Workout your own destiny. Be an architect of your own life on earth first. Learn self-reliance. Keep wholly within bounds of right dealings with all others, and then you will be able to show a generosity with the things selfullness has accumulated. You cannot give what you haven’t got.Many theorists believe that the ultimate end of civilization is a calm and beautiful peace. The reply to this belief is the assault the nature makes on peaceful people. Peace inactivity leads to weakness and death. Sickness and disease – ill health is caused by inactivity, not the excess of it. Today, we seek rest, television and easy food, and there are 8000 diseases, and as many remedies.
