The Earth is Our Spiritual Body
When I’m reading the book of nature I’m reading it through my soul. - Satish Kumar
As humans our villain is the mind. It conforms to the illusions and lies of society and is based on fear when compared to our natural authentic self.
Nature is our shadow.
Our soul, which is always seeking the journey rather than fulfilling the desires of the flesh finds tranquility in the mundane. Never looking for recognition always in direct contact with the Divine.
Living in the material world has its challenges, which is the beautify of life because our lessons are not always apparent at first but like a student or journalist we dig and seek truth of our self so that one day we may uncover our authentic selves.
Nature as our shadow shows us that we are supported. At one time we used to live in harmony with our environment. We learned that we’re apart of a bigger family rather than separate. Today, in the age of civilisation, our lost culture of reverence to nature has caused us to become a villain like characters you find in classic films.
However, when we relinquish all ties to the ego to the love of the material world and seek the recognition of the Divine we find ourselves. We find that we are perfect just the way we are. We find love and acceptance. We find a life without illusion and judgement. Most importantly, we find our heart.
Inna Allaha la yu ghayyiru ma biqawmin hatta yughayyiroo ma bi-anfusihim.
Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. - 13:11, the Quran
