What is your opinion of the Idea that Individuals’ lives are shaped by human longing
Most humans feel the pull of nature. Many choose to ignore it. Too wrapped up in the modern comforts and commodities of life. Too distracted by screens to pay any mind. Our minds are stuck in existence and limited imagination. The tug so often ignored is not truly of nature but through it. A pull away from but blocked by the ‘importance’ of out lives. The same ‘importance’ that pushes away family and friends; drives use past the woman on the side of the road with a cardboard sign. Our desire for stuff, our ‘importance’, status and self confidence shouts the fall of the garden. NOT YOUR WILL BUT MINE. Our ‘importance’ pulls against the draw of a still small voice. But the call to nature is a call to him. We are so enthralled with our comfort, technology, and our lives we block his call, so he calls us sometimes through nature. Where the distractions have been striped away and the comfort zones are gone, a place where we can hear him. In the silence of the mountains, trees, rocks, stars, critters, rivers, lakes with the family of ducks swimming, in the fog in this we see his beauty and may hear his call. A voice of a waterfall of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, self control and more. You hear the love that called you since before you were born. If you listen. Your life will never be the same.
Some won’t feel the draw to nature. But there is always God’s call, the only perfect peace to fill the gap in your heart.
