The purity of nature. I RESPECT IT.
A Category 5 hurricane came through my town last year. I had a massive tree fall on my roof during the storm. I stood patiently (sometimes) but mostly frantically in complete darkness scooping heavy rain water gushing in from the open hole in my roof into my bathtub. I did this so that it wouldn't flood the rest of the house. When I got tired, I tried to rest. I couldn't. Instead I tried to think of ways to stop the water. This went on for hours. Meanwhile winds of 100 mph+ blew all night. Many more details not necessary to speak of on this site. I look at nature with deep respect. Strangely enough humans have been quite callous disrespecting nature. People don't understand that forces can take them out in minutes, seconds in whatever form.
People live through some experiences like this in their own way. When you do and when you survive, you realize a lot of things. For me it's mostly that a lot of this Earthly life material life doesn't matter a damn bit. Just like that, it could be gone in the blink of an eye. So a lot of the stuff that goes on, absolute frivolous stuff, I have no interest. It's all fine and good, but as the song goes is like dust in the wind.
I was at a grocery store recently and the women on line in front of me spent 10 minutes talking solely about their manicured nails. The one woman was impressed at how the other woman's nails looked so real even after she told her they were fake. Sigh.
Maybe I just know that our existence is more divine. There has got to be more. I wonder about EXISTENCE in general because I have a feeling that what our EXISTENCE has been has also been a false one. A hidden one.
So it is within nature that I find no frivolity. It doesn't play mind games. It stands true to its purpose. It doesn't waste time with data, figures, trends, stats, marketing schemes, accolades. It doesn't care what you look like, what you wear, how rich or poor you are, how talented or smart you are. It takes you as is like it is "as is."
It is about the only thing in this world that is true.
