However, some people discover nature and everything it has to offer, and it's free of charge. They begin to hear the bird songs. They pay attention to the sunset over the wheat field or the sunrise over the sea. Some will learn the phases of the moon, always observing the sky when walking outside at night. They will observe nature and become aware of the sights and sounds of changing seasons. They recognize bird migration and the colors of Spring and Fall.
Awareness is necessary to our well-being.
Awareness of nature will tune up our spiritual, physical, mental and emotional awareness. As we begin to notice the barometric pressure, recognizing when a storm is rolling in, we will also begin to pay attention to our family and their emotional needs and concerns. We will recognize when problems arise at work or when danger is near outside. We will know when a health issue needs to be addressed or our diets need to change. We will have a greater sense of awareness of ourselves, the people around us and the places we go.
It could be said that nature is a gift,
but awareness of nature is a gift that keeps on giving.
