Insight

Mountains and Rivers 149

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

Albert Einstein

 What is it about nature that helps us to understand? I think it is the peace of mind, and the healing we receive from spending time in nature. When we are restored, and refreshed, we can see more clearly.

Restoration through nature helps us to see the connection between us and the rest of the world. We suddenly fit, and we feel like we do belong. We also gain an understanding, that other people fit, and they belong too. In this way, nature actually teaches us compassion. We begin to care, because of the insight, that we are all connected to each other. That’s what I think Einstein was trying to say in this quote. The more deeply we look into nature, the more we understand.

Peace.

I love the writing of Kahlil Gibran. There is tremendous depth and insight in his work. His reflections on nature, inner strength, and of course love, are amazing. What he thinks is important in this life resonates with me. I’m continuing to learn and and enjoy his writings. Of these quotes (and there are many more) I especially like the top and bottom ones. Showing tenderness is truly a strength (yes!), and our inner life grows through the battles and scars we often face. Have a blessed day, and a great week!

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!
