But let’s take a deeper view right from our own experience. When we plan a vacation in nature we are not planning to pack into a hostile and deadly environment, are we? Although we do see death in nature, we also see birth and life. We see love and cooperation among the animals; we see the vastness of the mountains, the oceans and the stars. The overall impression that we get is one of beauty, peace and harmony. Now that’s why we like to spend out time in nature.
Tracing this feeling of beauty and harmony further, we go inside our own being and see that the beauty and joy that we thought was out there, really comes from in here. Indeed, the oneness that we feel when we are in nature comes from stepping inside.
Standing here we get to appreciate fully what we are trying to preserve. It is a great symbol of the joy that comes right from our heart. And all we can do is stand in awe of a beauty that cannot be contained by just these words.
