Discovering yourself by getting lost in Nature

Getting lost to discover some of our selves is an adventure most of us want to partake. It takes money, time, and people to invest in such an endeavor but once we have taken the leap of faith we never rue our decision. World needs exploring and we are but explorers. So, we need to get in touch with the explorer within ourselves often. “I couldn’t have found God in the seminary” thought Paulo Coelho’s Santiago in The Alchemist.

The common denominator between destinies and adventure is the spirit required to embark upon both. Adventure is closely knitted with our destinies. Reconnecting with nature rewires our brain grounding all the negatives. It connects ourselves to our self. Persistence is required for happiness and it is the very thing we practice in all our adventures. Life is nothing but an adventure.

Adventures remind us of our strength and courage, lost in the chimes of daily life, invigorating our soul from within to accept the challenges of life. If we have what it takes to be at strange places among strange people facing situations unknown to us, we are likely to be more persuasive in achieving our dreams. Dreams are nothing but our resolve to see our future selves.

Adventures also reconnect us with the world around. We live lives far from nature, severing our ties with nature that is an indispensable need for our souls. Getting out from the manmade world helps us discover what we often ignore in our daily lives. In this connection we can find that lost happiness within ourselves. In our habitual automatic lives we become ignorant of the beauty, and of the wonders we have in our daily lives, unable to imagine life without amenities that we so casually enjoy. Nature can teach us our history; how did we came to live such lives?

It is difficult for us to trust people in our daily lives. We fail to see the beauty within. In journeys of self-discovery, we meet strange people and we need to trust them. This enables us to feel that rejuvenation of trusting others. Relationships are unsaid emotions kindling between two beings connecting their thoughts and minds reminding each other that they belong to each other. Adventures can teach us that. Adventures can really help us do what Alan Watts said:

“When you’re in the way of waking up, and finding out who you really are, what you do is what the whole universe is doing at the place you call here and now. You are something that the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is something that the whole ocean is doing… The real you is not a puppet which life pushes around; the real, deep down you is the whole universe.” Alan Watts
