Nature’s Wisdom: Appearances

Appearances-minIn these days, we put a lot of value on appearances and what Nature can share with us about this is so valuable.

Appearances are only what we see and Nature shows us that appearances are the combination of external and internal work happening simultaneously.

Nature’s beauty does not just appear externally for our pleasure. Mother Nature’s appearance contains all her efforts.  It’s the result of the work that she does internally that is reflected back externally.  The more effort that is put into creating each living being, the more beautiful it looks externally. Nature’s appearance is created and expressed by the hardship, the work it has done and the tension it has gone through to grow.  It is also a combination of the time it has put into the transformation, the presence in the moments of its development and the commitment to its survival that make it so beautiful.  The appearance of Nature is a collaboration, a cooperation and a unity of all its parts.

This is the same place in the winter. A bit of a different angle, but the appearance has completely changed just because of the seasons.

Nature’s appearance changes with time, with the seasons and the elements. These changes cause massive transformation in its appearance.  Nature doesn’t get attached to the appearance it has. It is only a result of its growth, of its transformation of purpose, of its path as well as a result of life’s course.

Take a river that freezes in the winter, its purpose stays the same but its appearance is very different and is transformed when spring melts all the snow and ice. This might even affect the path in which we find the bed of that river.  Once the bed has moved, it alters forever the course of other living beings.

This transformation of appearance is not for the pleasure of our eyes but from Mother Nature’s will to live. It’s her way of expressing herself and as a side effect to her expression we are blessed with her creating this beautiful space for us to walk in, be in and enjoy.  The feeling that we get in Nature, the experience that we have when being in Nature is not just based on appearance, it is supported by all that Nature is.  Our time spent within this richness, breathing in the depth of the connection, the collaboration, the cooperation and the creation only gives us a glimpse of the unwavering commitment Nature has to its growth.  The total presence of Being within each and every particle of Nature is what creates the appearance.  There is no mask, no false creations to protect the pain, there is only truth, unmasked, vulnerable, strong, growing, creating, adapting and transforming.

Nature shows us to look beyond the appearances and to see the depth of what is being reflected back to us.

The next time you see something that appears a certain way, look beyond and see the road it travelled to look that way.  It didn’t magically appear that way.  It was created by a combination of events, situations, transformation all united under the one thing you are looking at.

    Hi Nicole, thank you for a sweet post. This is a wonderful statement that you wrote
    “”The next time you see something that appears a certain way, look beyond and see the road it traveled””

    We can state this about ALL life and wish many could see beyond the superficiality of life. All too many times we do get caught in the busyness of life, commitments and computer chat and work – all to much so to see the human or nature’s side of beauty and the course of growth that creates phenomenal life.
    You wrote a very nice reminder. Cheers MicheleElys
