Nothing In Nature Is Isolated – A Video Essay

If you like this essay, share it with others

Nothing in Nature is isolated. From the most minuscule atomic particle to the grandest galaxies, the past, the present, and the future of every animate and inanimate being in our universe is defined by its connection to everything else because these vital connections transport and transform life energy within and between Her creatures. If any of these links were broken, Nature on any scale could be severely hampered or not operate at all.

If you are a parent, educator, or docent, feel free to show this video to your young people and your visitors. Help them probe into the three premises about Nature and why it is necessary that we humans must engage her.

Why Do I Write These Essays?

Nothing in Nature exists in isolation. The movement of life’s energy, which originates in the sun, takes place because everything is interconnected and interdependent. Your consciousness of interdependence in Nature means that, every time you engage Nature, you ask yourself how a creature, a plant, yourself, or a natural object is connected to another and to Nature’s greater scheme of things. With this awareness you are prepared to protect Nature’s environment that sustains you. And, you create your legacy by encouraging others to do likewise.


If, after reading my essays, you find yourself embracing these ideas, I am thrilled in knowing that I’ve played some small part in setting this world view in motion in your mind.

    1. Hi Jack: Being Native American is not a prerequisite to engaging Nature. For we humans to live in harmony with Nature and preserve our home for generations to come, we must get rid of our arrogance and appreciate that we are all (flora and fauna and inanimate things) interconnected. Our long term survival depends on embracing this idea.

  1. Beautifully done! We are all interconnected and all energy. Energy never dies. I found your presentation so spiritual and your information is what I’ve come to know from other sources. I’ll be happy to share 😉
