Learning from The Natural World

by Selacia

In nature, all things are in harmony. Animals living in nature coexist harmoniously with other animals and the energies of their natural environment. They eat when they are hungry, rest when they are tired, and look for companionship when their innate instinct guides them to do so.

Even death is considered a part of life, just as the seasons are. It is the same for animals that live a majority of their lives indoors. They remain connected to natural instincts and the present moment.

Animals living with humans don't spend their days worrying about the past or planning the future. They don't fret about who will feed them, where they will sleep, how long they will be living with their caretaker, or how long they will live. Likewise, they don't hold grudges like people do, for they are able to let go of past suffering, and care mainly about what is happening right now.

For animals, life is simple and unaffected. There is no need for pretense or guile. They don't "try" things. They "do" things. Animals have direct experiences of what life has to offer. They don't depend on others to tell them what they are experiencing. They don't spend hours analyzing their experiences like people do. If animals don't like something, they can let go and move on to something they do like.

Animals and the natural world can be your teachers during these uncertain times. You can learn by observing them, noticing how they respond to energetic forces you don't see with your physical senses.

They can teach you, too, by reminding you of a need for balance and play. They can help you to put your problems in perspective, and to rethink how you view time.

Your pets and animals in the wild can give you advance notice of weather changes and earth movements, too. When you learn to hear what they have to say, you can discover many things about yourself. You can learn, for example, that you don't need to do anything to be loved. They give you that love unconditionally.

The love you receive from animals can help you to heal the disconnect humans often have with feeling and residing in the heart. Animals can help you to feel safe in your heart and in your world.
