Nature is a primary teacher. We can look all over the place for inspiration, and in search of the secrets of life. However, all you need to do is spend some time in nature to hear the wisdom that comes from being within the stillness and vibrancy that nature has.
Some of the most inspirational works have happened from Nature. For example the writings of the Tao Te Ching mostly come from nature. There is a wonderful quote from Lau Tzu who wrote the Tao Te Ching— "Nature does not hurry yet everything gets done"
The wisdom here is clear and true, yet it is common to feel, and believe that you must hurry in order to get things done. However, there is a magic to practicing patience. It is important to do the work, yet it is just as important to take time to pause, and allow all the work to flourish in its own time. Sometimes the best thing you can do in regards to a project or event that you have been slaving over, is to take a time-out from it, and allow all that work to simmer, so that it can flourish in the right timing. This is exactly how nature proceeds, and we have much to learn from its wisdom.
1. Go out to Nature and allow yourself to be inspired. You can even ask: "What inspiration is there for my_______" (project, or any issue you have been working on and worrying about)
2. Sit in nature for about 20 minutes and pay attention to any thoughts or wisdom that come through. These moments of wisdom that you gather in nature, often give potent information to further your journey to create excellence in your work and life.
Sometimes taking a break from our projects is what we need for the project to move forward. Get out in nature, enjoy the break & the wisdom that comes with it.
