Nature inspires. It invites stillness. It helps me connect with a deeper self. It recreates. It feeds my mind with refreshed creativity. It helps me open beyond my own thoughts. It reminds me of the superficialness of the constructed civilisation - and it heals. Nature invites authenticity and reflection. It awakens a sense of love - beyond the conditioned states of mind. I have been drawn to merge with nature by both physical and mental challenges - but the deepest experience always seem to open something beyond body, mind or the activity itself.
