We`re suddenly very concerned about chemicals in our foodstuff. The health organisations tell us to opt for organically grown foods. But in truth, the picture is much graver. We have synthetics in every aspect of life. Even in the way we think, the way we feel.
Are we letting the artificial take over our lives? Is that why there is so much restlessness in the world today? The fact is that we`re cutting out Mother Nature, cutting out our roots - cutting out our earthiness.
Creatures of Planet Earth are meant to be earthy. Why do we live like we`re born of concrete and plastic then? We have surrounded ourselves with all concrete and no jungle. Why do we train ourselves to think unnatural?
We suppress and repress our instincts and emotions and instead act and react in artificial ways. Why the clamp down on any behaviour that`s natural? We are after all, creatures of nature.
Nature isn`t about beautiful well-trimmed potted plants placed artistically around. It is an awesome force with its mingled fury and serenity. It`s about being true to yourself. It`s about the way things were meant to be.
Being civilised is one thing, but to turn ourselves into programmed beings is another. We have learned to think that many of our instincts are things that we should overcome.
Life, on the contrary, is very often chaotic and arbitrary. But that`s normal. It`s natural. It`s organic. Every step we take away from nature is a step towards stress. It`s a leap towards what we are not, as well as what we need not be.
Let`s get back to nature. And think organic in every phase of life.
