Many people have told me throughout my life that there is more to life, there is a spiritual side. I have had many close friends tell me I need to do yoga, meditate and eat well. They have told me many times that this is the answer to everything especially happiness. I do not disagree but...
I have always had a sense of wander for the world, for the natural world. Since I was a young boy I have known what is that I want to do. I am still not sure exactly how to do it but I know what it is. I want to change the world. I want to change your idea on nature and the way you view it. I want to change just about everyones idea on how to treat the world and how to feel for animals and nature. Plainly put I want to save nature but in order to do that there needs to be a fundamental change in the way people perceive it. No, I don't want to save nature for your kids to see or my kids or any generation there after. I want to save nature for the sake of saving nature. Everything has a right to life just like every human does. It's a funny thing being a nature lover, for one I feel incredibly blessed to have this drive to do what ever I can but on the other hand it weighs me down as I just do not know where to start or how. Its such a big task and sadly I have to concede to the fact that I can't change everything but how do I choose which avenue to take, how do I decide which area to target. There will always be something left behind. The wilderness and nature is my life, I am attached. When I am in nature I feel whole. I do not need yoga or meditation or any other "spiritual" awakening. My awakening has happend, it happened ages ago. I wish I could make you feel this too. There is nothing more "in the moment" than being in nature and feeling the wind, smelling the fresh air, closing yours eyes and just listening or looking out over an incredible view. It is always so right and it leads me everytime to the thought of "what it the point?" but at the same time I feel like I know the point when I am in these spaces. We need to take a step back as a species and as individuals and realise that the point we are all looking for is here and now and the best way to feel it and understand it is by taking a step out of your door or rather your comfort zone, that saying about comfort zones, the magical one... It is true and there is no better place to find that magic than in the wilderness. Natue is the one "god" we should all be praising but it is also the thing we are all hell bent on destroying the fastest.
