The Most Brilliant Professor

Nature often best teacher and friend. We can learn from animals, mountains, rivers, rocks, trees, clouds, sky, and so much more. Charlemagne once say, “'Let my armies be the rocks and the trees and the birds in the sky." In this case, we want them to be our teacher. They are our most brilliant professor.

From a river we can learn to flow around obstacles and continue on our way. From animals, we can learn to live in the present, not worrying about the past or getting lost in some future that most likely will not happen anyway. From the mountains, we can learn to be strong and stable. From the trees we can learn that there our times when it behooves us to be flexible. If we take the time to study properly, nature is true master.

Look to nature as a comforting friend; one that is always there for us. A place to recharge your batteries after being buffeted about by modern society. A place to connect and re-connect to Tao. A place to feel the warmth of sun, dance in the rain, and enjoy the dark starry nights.. Nature is a place where we can get our mind in synchronicity with rhythm of Tao.
