Nature is life’s greatest teacher.
The natural laws are hidden in nature.

Hidden are solutions to everyday problems such as conflict resolution, how to forgive,
Lessons about differences, how to manage organizations, how to think.

Hidden are feelings.
You can look at something and you will feel it.

At night, have you ever looked at the sky when there are no clouds?
As you look at all the stars, your heart will become very joyful.

You will walk away feeling joyful and peaceful.
We need to visit nature so we can see and feel these things. –Elders | More…

When we live in nature it’s like constantly being in school. We are in an environment that is always teaching. We are constantly being reminded that there are laws, Natural Laws, which are running the universe. Once we know these laws and we drift from them, we start to live our lives in a different way. Soon we become discontent, selfish, and disrespectful. Then, we get in trouble. If our lives have become this way, it can be reversed by going back to nature to be among our teachers. –Elders Meditations | More…

Every plant, every animal, every insect, every bird, every tree is made up of God. God is life and everything is alive. All nature has purpose. All nature participates in the life cycle. Nature communicates; Nature talks; Nature listens; Nature forgives; Nature respects; Nature loves. Nature lives in harmony. Nature follows the law. Nature is kind. Nature is balance. The woods are alive and beautiful. She is our friend. –Elders Meditations | More…
