Nature Mysticism: The Re-Enchantment of the World | The Big Picture |

As a spiritual teacher, you won't find anyone more indifferent, ruthless, and amoral than Mother Nature. Then again, you won't find anyone quite as vital, honest, or beautiful either. There is an undeniable neutrality running throughout Nature—it's easy to imagine Her quietly laughing to Herself as we try to project our own limited narratives of meaning and morality onto Her, or when we try to imagine ourselves as being somehow separate from the natural world.
