My belief is ; " Humanity has over time became so disconnected from " Nature ", it has truly " lost it's way"
I believe we are as Human beings...as much as part of Nature as, a Cloud,a Tree,a stream,a wolf,a mule,a part of the essense of the whole Universe...yet we continue to harm our life source,in a mad dash of hurrying about...We must all stand-up..do our part!
|"The imagination of nature is far, far greater than the imagination of man."|
- Richard Feynman
I try to pay "Attention" to Nature.....with all my being,attempt to be embodied with the grandness of Nature's Essence...thus the more spiritual ..I may become.__me
Nature to me...is beyond Amazing!
I believe if we fail to look to "Nature" for guidiance,,we will fail..ourselves
example: here is study of the "Wolf"...we can learn much from their "Society"
Parenting is one..where the wolf ...exeeds humanity!...something to ponder
The Sun, the Moon, the Earth and its contents are material to form greater things, that is, ethereal things- greater things than the Creator himself has made.-John Keats
I spent a lot of time diving under the lily pads like this,(above) growing up,until the waters became so polluted,I could no longer see.
When I did my check out dives in 1980 (to be a certified diver NAUI),the water clarity was similar to the above.

The Beaver / a great preserver of Nature
Great video "inside beaver lodge"
I’m fascinated by creatures that create new ways of life for others. Ecologists talk about ‘keystone species,’ ones which support entire ecosystems, like the central stone in a renaissance archway. Pull it away, and the whole arch falls. But I like to go beyond the edge-of-your-seat ‘Jenga’ approach, and think about ‘ecosystem engineers’: category-busters that create new opportunities for everyone. The beaver is one of those. Beavers build lodges (domed shelters made of woven branches and grass, plastered together like adobe) and they also build log dams to raise the water level around the lodge, hiding the entries to their home safely underwater. When beavers are around, a wetland is nine times more likely to have pooling water, and in times of drought, these waterways have 60% more water in them. Where there are beavers, there is a greater abundance and diversity of songbirds, frogs, salamanders, dragonflies, and fish.-Tamsin Woolley-Barker, PhD.

-------------------------------- What is a Natural Human ?---------------------------------------------------------------
♥ Is it Natural to drive a car?
♥ Cheat another Human, Lie ?
♥ Build a shelter, eat, have children ?
Yet so many so called Humans if asked this simple question, don't know really what to say, yet they look at another and can for some reason judge, and say " They Ain't". quite a dilemma-(a situation in which a difficult choice has to be made between two or more alternatives, especially equally undesirable ones.)
Article at americanforests.org - Thoreau & Trees: A Visceral Connection ;
"Henry David Thoreau was captivated by trees, and they played a significant role in his artistic creativity, philosophical thought and even his inner life. He responded emotionally to trees, but he also understood them scientifically as a naturalist. As a writer, Thoreau portrayed them so perfectly that it was as if he could see the sap flowing beneath their bark. When he wrote in The Maine Woods that the poet loves the pine tree as his own shadow in the air, he was speaking about his connection to trees. In short, he spoke their language.
What drew him to trees? Their beauty and form delighted his eye. Their wildness struck a chord in him. Their patience reminded him that we will sooner overtake the dawn by remaining here, where we are, than by chasing the sun across the western hills. By spending his life rooted in Concord, Thoreau emulated trees’ tenacious hold on earth."
