We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature. We’ve lost our connection to ourselves.

Best playlists ever. Just sit back, light up, and learn about how you were born from the sun.

Oh, the arguments I've had in my environment conservation class about this
I'd explain how we are nature, and even weaker than many aspects of nature (except our brains, I guess lol). A few people will argue back saying we're superior to nature because we can think and humans are the only things on Earth that is aware of their being.....and thats where I go all out.

But, the strange thing of it all is that there is no definite right or wrong....just what the individual human being believes. Then I think, why, man?....why?

I feel like I went off topic, and if I did, I apologize. Your highdea just got me thinking about whatever I just wrote lol

I agree, and if you can manage to shed your concept of self, (your mind&body) you realize that that basic awareness, the act of pure observation without processing is within everything. like a particle taking the perspective of the field around it. its beautiful.

I am not agreeing nor disagreeing. But when stating this Highdea you should often consider the concept of Nature vs Nurture. Are we as individuals who we are because of nature or nurture?

its a mixture of both but nurture has a lot to do with the way people act and think

I grew up in the country surrounded by nature, now I go to college and live in the city. How life changes so quickly and drastically I will never know.

Totally true. We have a killer nude beach by where I live, out in the gorge. It's all trees and a little sand, totally woodsy and gorgeous. You see all sorts of flora and fauna walking through the trails, and it's a wonderful way to reconnect to your inner self. If you go far enough, you even leave other people behind. That's my spirituality. Just going out and being one with yourself and the world. Anyone else do things like this?

if you think about it, all we are, is the universe experiencing itself.
everything in the universe is made up of three things
neutrons, protons, and electrons.
and those three elements are all we are as well.
if you really think about it,
humans are no more complex than a blade of grass or a rock for instance because we are all made up of the same things when you break it down to the beginning.
but in a way we are more complex, because we are made of the same shit, but we experience everything we go through.
all you and anyone else is, is the universe experiencing itself.

I fuckin say this shit all the time. Whenever people talk about something being synthetic or artificial or non-natural ingredients. I always say we are nature so anything we make is a product of nature so yes, carmel color #3 is natural...
