“Nature yields her most profound secrets to the person who is determined to uncover them.” Napoleon Hill
I love older classic movies from the 1940-1950’s. I find the acting and stories so compelling. There were no special effects to entertain you, so the dialog had to be intriguing, intelligent and emotionally gripping. There was’t even any color to enhance the scenes so using shadows and playing with angles left much to your imagination.
One movie I watch last week was Bird Man of Alcatraz, a true story based on the life of Robert Franklin Stroud. He was incarcerated for 54 years of his life with 43 of those years in solitary confinement. In that time he became a respected ornithologist (bird expert) and educated himself in many subjects.
It made me think of what we are capable of when we join forces with this universal intelligence. We don’t have to go to solitary confinement to uncover our talents and gifts, but we do need to sacrifice something of a lower nature for a higher one.
When we go into the solitude of our minds, nature will begin to reveal her secrets to you too!
Are you ready for a revaluation?

Once Upon a time, people relied on old knowledge of living off the land rather than shops, for their source of food, clothing and other such necessities. Our modern world has evolved out of this ancient one. Unfortunately the course we took as a whole, has separated nature out of the equation. Most people have forgotten the old ways. Knowledge is the key to success, and nature is the key to knowledge. When you study nature, all the mysteries of life reveal themselves. All the answers are hidden in the very thing that we over look. Even a single blade of grass has knowledge in it. The natural laws of the universe have been given to us to explore, and live in harmony with. This is our play ground. So why would we want to decimate our world? I believe that the only reason is, that we forgot about the old knowledge. This is the same reason why there is so much addiction, distraction, depression, and disease. Because we separated from the truth of who we are. We are creators, here to create our best life. To manifest our deep desires, we must connect with nature and the old knowledge.When we become whole in body, mind and spirit, we will remember who we really are. So let’s go back and read the story. Once upon a time when we were all connected.

If you want to think clearer and feel better, spend some time in nature. The plant world holds the key to unlocking our confusion and troubles. It soothes our soul and provides life-giving oxygen for us to breath. I once owned and operated a horticultural business. I would install and maintain plants in homes and office’s. These plants brought the outside world inside and helped people become calmer, more productive and healthier. People need the connection with nature. In our technological world where many people sit in an office or indoors for most of the day never being exposed to any nature, a condition called nature dfecit disorder occurs. We become disconnected. Nature deficit disorder also is the disconnect from our food supply, our wanting to irraticate all insects, and anything that separates us from the natural world. When we learn to reconnect and live in harmony with our natural world, balance will be restored. So I invite you to spend some time in nature and reconnect with our life giving planet earth.

I recently came across an article, and in it was a quote from George Washington Carver. This is the man who is known for inventing peanut butter. This was a man of character. His quote was “When you love something enough, it will speak to you.” He loved botany. He devoted his life to it and the plant world spoke to him. The character of this man become his destiny. George Washington Carver, actually turned down a position where he was offered $100.000 a year. That would be equivalent to over a $1,000.000 today. His character was so great, that he refused to accept money for the gifts he said God gave him. He invented crop rotation and many other helpful techniques that have saved time and helped the world. We should all take a lesson from this great man of character. Love nature and allow it to speak to us.

Nature is always speaking to us in quite whispers. Can we become silent enough to hear her? She reveals secrets of life that are too subtle to pick up on if we are busy in thought. When we calm our minds and bodies, we can then hear the voice of nature. We can then commune with the spirits of the plant world. The flowers, trees, vines and all floras have properties and energies that can heal us or harm us. The more we become familiar with them, the more we can understand and appreciate life with all its diversities. Just by observing its habitat, we are able to discover its qualities. Plants have amazing medical usages. Right in our own backyards we a pharmacopeia at our disposal. If we begin to tend our oxygen producing plants with love and respect, they will provide us with a harvest of knowledge and healing. We are a part of nature. Nature is a part of us. The more we distance our self from her, the farther away we get from our true essence. Spend some time in nature. Become silent and listen. The garden of Eden is always near.

We live in a world where people expect instant gratification. We can get information immediately through goggle, or purchase something on the spot with our credit cards or get in touch with anyone at any time. We expect results fast. However there is a law of gestation that must take place in order to produce the desired results of life. These are natural laws that can not be changed, altered or manipulated. A tomato takes 7-14 days to germinate, an elephant takes 18 to 24 months to give birth, a human about 9 months.
We nurture the tomato seed by planting it in good soil, water it, plant it in good sun, fertilize it and then wait. Once its germinated, then we take care of it so it can produce plenty of tomatoes.
Well the same goes for an idea. Although we don’t know exactly when an idea will germinated into reality we do know the same laws apply. If we plant the seed (idea) in a positive mind, nurture it by thinking of it often in a relaxed state, take some action every day toward its results it will get born. It has to. But don’t expect instant gratification. Planting and harvesting does not come in the same season. You will be rewarded by the bounty with patience, tending your garden and preparation.
A time to plant and a time to reap.
There is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.

After spending day after day down in Long Beach NY, I am amazed at the resilience of the people who’s lives were ripped apart from Hurricane Sandy.
In just a little over a month the climate of the area has bounced back tremendously. Yes, it will take years before things can be restored however the progress of people working together is remarkable. This beautiful planet earth as well as the people living on it are extremely resilient.
We are always expanding and expressing our spirit onward and upward. If we continue to work and cooperate with one another nothing is impossible. Life is always seeking the light and as long as we keep the fire burning in our soul and keep our hearts open we will evolve forward. This storm reminded us how fragile we are and yet how resilient we are as well. So the next time circumstances seem to knock you down, remember that one candle can bring light into a room of darkness but darkness can never diminish the light. With the light in all of us we are the resilient one’s, who will thrive and bring abundance to a new world.
