The Outdoors allows me to listen to the world around me. I become a part of it. What’s that sound? Am I safe? Wow, that was beautiful! I realize that I’m a natural being, not invincible nor all that important, like our modern society teaches. My life is put into perspective. When I let my senses and instinct work as designed, I give myself an opportunity to learn, to let new ideas in, and to remember, “for dust you are, and to dust you will return."
How might you incorporate more opportunities into your life where you encounter your primal nature?
