nature-appreciation

I’m getting in the shower, I swear I’m done talking so much. But my life has been on the up and up for a very long time. And I hope to continue an upward trajectory and reach for the stars and get all my dreams and help people. I have to save so much to be proactive and anticipate the waves of nature. I appreciate nature. I try to understand and respect nature. I try to keep in mind that my life has paralleled nature very distinctly. And if anything happens where a wave is not in what I consider to be my favor at the time, I will understand and accept it and live off of what I’ve done to be proactive. I navigate nature as a part of it. A lot of animals store food for the winter! Animals often look to multiple places as food sources. So if I ever experience winter, I hope to be prepared?? I also think I’m this close to becoming a tree. More and more every day

It literally takes zero dollars and zero effort to post pictures without white washing pictures of idols to the point of making them look transparent. I mean, why spend your time bleaching people’s beautiful, natural skin color while you can save time by just appreciating their natural beauty? Stop wasting your time. STOP WHITE WASHING.

When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying, ‘You’re too this, or I’m too this.’ That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.
