Nature’s Wisdom : Chaos and Growth
Nature is such a parallel to life. Have you noticed lately how the beginning of the New Year has brought with it some chaos and some growth? As always, I decided to turn to Nature to help me understand all of this chaos and growth and I share some of her wisdom.
Nature lives in chaos, in that space of inconsistent, unstable, unpredictable place, grounds, conditions and weather patterns, to name a few.
Nature’s way of facing all of this chaos is to keep growing. Mother Nature teaches us that ‘not dying’ is not ‘living’ it’s not even surviving. Living is full of risks and chaos when you look at Nature. There are no guarantees, no safety or security offered to Nature, there is only LIFE through chaos and growth. From this place, Mother Nature
creates cooperation, collaboration, combination, addition, and life. The life that takes place in Nature is created by the chaos and growth which are all part of the order and simple complexity that allows Mother Nature to live, survive, transform and grow. She demonstrates this to us over and over again. Whether it’s through the chrysalis that must break open and be destroyed to allow the butterfly to take flight or through the flood that has to take place in order for the growth of the spring to crop up.
Nature is WHOLE. It’s beauty and destruction, creation and decay all joined into one. The beauty is evident to us but we often forget what Nature goes through to survive. The natural hunts between the predator and the prey, the avalanches, the floods, the forest fires, all those are part of Nature. The beauty and creation would not be possible without the destruction and the death and decay. Nature doesn’t try to understand what is happening to her, why this is happening, how it’s happening, she stays present within her reality. She creates life from the chaos, she changes, transforms and adapts to the chaos. The obstructions or perceived chaos are a passage to the growth that comes with life.
Mother Nature shows us that growth is inconsistent, unpredictable and sometimes variable. It also shows us that living is a combination of events, of situations and also of collaboration, of cooperation of all of those parts united together. The growth in Nature cannot take place if each plant or animal does not become part of the whole. Each has its part to play and each much be present to contribute to the growth that comes out of the chaos.
So the next time you find yourself looking at your life and wanting to give up on your self, on your dreams and on your life, remember that Mother Nature’s development and growth comes from her process and movement through and out of chaos. Take a bit of Nature’s wisdom and know that you can reach out to others to create collaboration, cooperation and combination of strength. Now that is Life and that is Living
