Listening to Nature Within

by Nick Andrea

“My” energy ebbs and flows naturally, like a mountain brook as the seasons change. Some days I am full and some I am not. Some days my mood is perky, while on others it is sullen.

This native wax-and-wane is no problem unless I make it into one by forcing myself to be busier than I can be on any given day. I do this a lot, however, which is why I’m writing this blog post. Is it any surprise, though, as I live in America where the number one value is constant, never-ending production? Yet, America or not, it is this dishonoring of my natural flow that leads to dis-ease and unhappiness.

“My” body has a natural intelligence of which even the mind is a part. It is Nature, herself, embodied as the human being Nick Andrea – much smarter than my mind’s patterns and conditions collected over the past 30.9167 years (I’ll be 31 in a month). So, the alternative is for “my” mind to honor “my” body’s energy by doing what it will naturally allow in any given moment.

Today is a perfect day to apply this lesson, for, my schedule says I need to do this, that, and the other thing, yet, my energy and mood are moving at a slower pace. So, I think I will listen and move to the Nature’s natural rhythm through “me,” today. Is that not true wisdom?
