There is an ancient being who offers us access to limitless power and intelligence each and every day of our lives. She is approximately 3.5 billion years old and so astoundingly brilliant, she can sustain about 10 million different species of life simultaneously in a display of unmatched beauty and harmony. This ancient, wise and powerful being is our planet earth. We are connected to every aspect of her power from the moment we are born. She is more powerful than a rocket ship, more beautiful than a Monet and more harmonious than a symphony orchestra. Nature is so highly evolved, she has attained a state of perfection and intelligence we can only dream of replicating.
Although we may not be able to replicate nature's brilliance, we can always plug in to her whenever we want. As a matter of fact, this is exactly what we were designed to do. But how do we plug in to the limitless power, beauty and harmony of nature when everything in our world tells us not to? Movie studios tell us nature is a scary place where the boogeyman lives. Religion tells us nature is to be subdued and dominated. Industry tells us nature must be stripped, fracked, drilled and mined. Environmentalists tell us we are doomed if we don't stop being bad to it. Our leaders, parents and educators tell us to go inside the fabricated walls of schools, jobs, and houses. So who in the world is telling us to connect with nature in order to expand our minds, heal our bodies and soothe our souls? Emmy award-winning filmmaker Jan Nickman is telling us. Actually, he's not just telling us -- he's giving us the experience of it.
