Before you get the wrong idea, i love picturesque landscapes, fresh air, beautiful meadows, scenery, the chirping of birds a nice cool breeze, looking at the beautiful cute baby monkeys puppies cats you name it, and its very easy to think about how `wonderful mother nature is`.

However, when you put down the rose tinted glasses and look at the real side of nature, you see animals as wonderful and intelligent as they are, killing each other constantly, i cant bear to watch programs which show a lion chasing an innocent zebra or something and killing it for food, or things like that.

Also `mother nature` comes with thousands of years of ice ages, major volcanoes every few hundred years, earthquakes you name it.

If you compare the `beauty` of mother nature to the negative aspects, the negative aspects outride it 10 to 1, almost to the point of where if you look at the facts, its almost like mother nature doesnt welcome or want anyone on earth.

Nature is cruel, unmerciful and heartless.

So next time you go `how wonderful mother nature is`, just think that right now there are beautiful animals being kiled in their millions, people dying due to storms, earthquakes etc.. all because of your `mother nature`

it's all part of the beauty of nature. what is beautiful about it is how intricate it truly is.

Guess it depends where you live.

Australia for example, Bill Bryson once described it as the only place in the world were everything is trying to kill you (The weather, plants, famine, drought, fire, poisonous animals, poisonous / deadly sea creatures, deadly waves, the baking sun)....

But compare that to the UK. Very very few deadly creatures, hardly any snakes, mild(ish) weather and no inhospitable places.

Balance.

the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).


All of it is beauty; its softest most pleasing moments to the tumultuous power of death and destruction. The very fact that most of civilization balances on a knife edge is a beautiful, powerful things. A couple of good earthquakes could destroy massive cities and mother nature moves on as if nothing had ever been there.

The very balance of life and death itself is beautiful; that doesn't mean it has to be pretty.

You must have put this thread in "General Conspiricies" for a reason. Mind sharing it? What is conspiring here?

Its funny all the new age people talk about all their universal we are all one stuff.
They obviously haven't had to deal with hungry man eating bears before.
Nature is unforgiving....not some fantasy land where everything is great based on new age BS.
I guess a person could be one with the bear after he is eaten and one with the earth after the bear craps him out.

I spend alot of time in nature and see how unrealistic some peoples views are.

I really feel sorry for anyone who can't actually see and feel how beautiful it is, to take a stroll through the forests, or beside the lakes, and appreciate the beauty that they give.

I always feel a oneness with nature and earth when I go for these walks, And let me tell you, there is nothing that even comes close to that feeling. Nothing can replace the energy that nature gives to me.

I'm not so sure words can even describe this feeling. It needs to be appreciated to understand it.

OP, I can understand what you mean though when you say you can't stand to watch these nature shows on tv where animals hunt each other. But we need to understand that this is what THEY have to do to survive. They can't just go and do a weekly shop in tesco's


The kingdom has a food chain in order to survive. As painful as it is to SEE this, it is simply needed.

Carnivors have to eat meat, Herbivores have to eat plant material,and humans who are Omnivors have to eat meat and plant material to be healthy. This is survival.

Nature is balance and in the same way that a person cannot truly be happy, without having been truly sad, or in the same way that a person cannot truly appreciate the sun, without having been through a storm, or in the same way that a person cannot truly know life, without risking death, so it is with Nature. Balance. Without one, there cannot be the other...

Dont view it from a fearful aspect. Who is more destructive nature or Humanity?

Crocodiles have jaws that can snap shut and break bone, but can be held closed by the average person with a single hand.

Balance.

She destroys and she creates.
She bestows strengths and weaknesses.
She gives and she takes.

A few years ago. I visited India.

There was NOTHING quite like waking up to the sound of wild monkeys; mountainous breezes and the view of the Himalayan peaks rising through the cloud cover. Here are some photo's I took.



Or sitting by the mountain lakeside and watching the birds fly over the gentle water.



Seriously nature IS beautiful.


Let me tell you about one of my most exhilerating moments:

I was in the foothills of the Himalaya's, in a popular Buddhist /Hindu town. During the point of the journey, I fel stressed, exhausted, knackered from all the travelling on cramped transport. Upon finally reaching this town, I decided the best thing I could do was to go for a walk and explore and have some peace away from my girlfriend at the time (since we'd got to that point of annoying each other)...

Anyhoo, i headed through the woods and found a quiet spot looking around a huge wooded mountain. As I sat down, i noticed a family of monkey's (the female monkey had little babies clinging to her back)... She noticed me, and for a moment I thought i'd be attacked as maybe she would defend her young. But instead she simply gave me a quick glance and sat about five or six feet away from me...

I remained sitting there for two hours, simply overwhelmed by the beauty, until it started to heavily rain (I LOVE the rain).... Then for some reason, I was overwhelmed with ecstasy, just sheer bliss and I remember jogging back through the woods, a big grin on my face, re-energised and happy with the world.... The rain turned into hail, golf ball sized hail chunks bouncing down. I took shelter under a big tree until it calmed and then I headed back into town.... Feeling infinitely happier.

all because of your `mother nature`


Good morning marg,

What do you mean by "your" mother nature?

I am truly confused by this statement, as it almost seems that you are implying that mother nature does not apply to yourself, but applies to all others, and is somehow the result, or fault of people appreciating it.


It would be much appreciated if you could elaborate
