"I asked the leaf whether it was frightened because it was autumn and the other leaves were falling. The leaf told me,No. During the whole spring and summer I was completely alive. I worked hard to help nourish the tree, and now much of me is in the tree. I am not limited by this form. I am also the whole tree, and when I go back to the soil, I will continue to nourish the tree. So I don’t worry at all. As I leave this branch and float to the ground, I will wave to the tree and tell her, I will see you again very soon.’”
The leaf saw itself already there in the tree. It belonged not only to the tree but also to the soil and all that was around it.
The global health and environment crisis of our decade IS because we see ourselves APART from Nature, while in fact we are A PART of her.
Only when we learn to appreciate our place in this Web of Life, can we even fathom to understand the impact of our actions- not just on ourselves but also on Nature and her 30,000 other children (species).
At the Open House, on Nature vs Nurture, we explored 6 Life Principles from Nature, that govern the functioning of all life forms. Through these principles Nature has evolved to stay resilient, progress and thrive.
We learnt how the same principles work within our body through Natural laws. We saw how our actions create a health, social, economic and global impact.
From Nature and Natural Law we saw possibilities to mitigate the illnesses we see on our Body and our Earth.
To find out more on how you can tweak simple daily actions for better health, re-foster a harmonious relationship with the Earth, and not just survive but thrive.
