Brad Rant: The Power of Nature
Mudslides, wildfires, hurricanes.
Climate change. Death and regrowth.
The power of Mother Nature is wonderous – she’s always giving.
The resilience of our natural world astounds me.
And the balance of its destruction and its gifts always brings me perspective.
After all, isn’t balance what life is all about?
I retreat into nature regularly.
There’s something about sinking into the earth, closing my eyes, taking the deepest breath I can.
Hearing, smelling, and feeling life all around you.
Everything else can disappear.
The factory farm humdrum of everyday life demands certain behaviors, patterns, and modifications to our true selves.
But there’s inherent freedom and permission to be yourself in nature.
Just you, your senses, and the unstoppable momentum of biology.
It’s all about balance.
