SHAKTI DURGA says that we are capable of interacting with nature just by paying attention to it. And as we pay attention to nature, we tend to learn about the sacred way of grace…

The ancient sages, who were our great spiritual masters, realised the universe’s profound teachings that were later written down and recorded in the Vedas by meditating upon nature. Can you imagine that? One of the reasons I have enjoyed so much of spiritual travel over the past 15 years is because I love to listen to the song of nature in various countries, where the frequencies are different. But everywhere, what I found is that ancient wisdom is stored and is waiting for us to discover it.

To the ancient mystics, Consciousness, God, Nature, the Self, relationships – in fact all of Creation is seen as alive and interconnected. Nothing stands separate. We are capable of interacting with nature just by paying attention to it. And as we pay attention to nature, we tend to learn about the sacred way of grace, all within the kaleidoscopic potential of unique habitats, ecosystems and lives. To commune with the elements, all of nature’s vast resources such as the forests and oceans, as well as your house plants and pets, and the trees outside your home help you to find happiness and love, besides helping you to find yourself, and cherish life and everyone around you.

In the Kabbalah it teaches that one cannot become fully enlightened in any other realm than in the physical one. This teaches us one profound fact — that we need to be grounded and practical in the world of form, and be connected with what it teaches, before the final mysteries are revealed and the doors of the Divine Kingdom open and we learn to find the treasures within it.

In the present circumstances, we cannot go travelling all over the globe to commune with the world’s sacred places and hidden knowledge. However, we can still keep our dance with Consciousness moving forward. All one must do is to go within and connect with nature wherever you are. 

One way to connect with nature is to find a calming spot in a garden or under a tree and begin your meditation. Look upon meditation as a form of healing for your mind, body and spirit.

Meditation eventually helps you to get rid of your negative thoughts, vibrations and negative energies. These are eventually replaced with positive affirming beliefs and energies that enables the meditator to move forward into a new way of thinking and being.
