Man in his/her natural habitat — the wilderness, doesn’t need endless entertainment. We only “need” it now, because we’ve become accustomed to it. As a result, we’ve lost touch with our true self.
There are many advantages to modern life. It has improved our lives in many ways. But it has also taken something very important away from us. Living in a concrete jungle is an unnatural existence. As is sitting at a cubicle or standing on an assembly line all day.
Whenever possible, turn off your entertainment devices. Whenever possible, get away from people and be close to nature. And if your job bores you stiff or stresses you out, start laying the groundwork for something else.
Nature offers us the best opportunity to be ourselves. Nature doesn’t tell itself a story, the way people do. Nature doesn’t have an opinion. Nature allows us to be ourselves. Nature leaves room for us to hear our true self. Nature makes it possible for us to be closer to God.
