The Serene, The Pristine, and The Sacred

The Serene, The Pristine, and The Sacred

“If you love it enough, anything will talk with you” – George Washington Carver   Nature speaks to us with three voices. Her aesthetic voice  , her spiritual voice , and her logical voice speak to me when I choose to deeply listen.  In this essay, I wish to share with you the notion of Nature’s serene, pristine, and sacred voice and why engaging that voice is so important to humanity.   The Apache Indians...

I read quite a few books that express the ideas of great minds who offer profound insight into the aesthetic, spiritual, and scientific voices of Nature.

A summer of growing passions for protecting Nature. I just returned to my home in Mexico after an incredible ten weeks of engaging Nature.
