What is it that makes us feel separate from nature?
From the time we are born we are enclosed within little boxes.
Man-made structures that separate us from nature.
Humans consider nature hostile so we set about withdrawing from it in order to try and tame it.
In the Book of Genesis in the Bible God tells Adam and Eve to subdue the earth and gives them dominion over every living thing.
This passage has been used by humans to justify the rape and pillage of the earth and its animals and plants.
We can see the results.
It is time to reconnect with nature.
We are not a race apart.
We are a part of nature.
Breathe the fresh air.
Look at the trees and flowers.
Smell the roses.
This is God's temple
Not the massive buildings we have made.
So come out of your little boxes and be with God.
