< Spiritual Journeys
to the Nature >
Human eings originate from the Nature. When
coming back to the Nature once again, we will feel safe, satisfied, touched and
warm, joust like when we used to be in our mothers’ wombs before we were born.
Our externally-frozen hearts will become soft again by such feeling.
The tangible Nature is composed of
everything visible, while the intangible Nature is composed of our inner
spiritual pure land. We will be full of infinite satisfaction by having a
spiritual journey to the Nature. Our moods will become smoother if we discover
the beauty of the Nature. Negative sentiments are the stumbling stones for
our growth, but keeping a susceptible heart is the lubricant for our growth.
We should dissolve our bad moods by our susceptible
hearts. By freeing our hearts and embracing the Nature, we can feel and
experience the simple and tranquil joy in the nature.

like a fairy possessing natural grace.

the tranquil lake occasionally, which
seemed to wake up the sleepy land. The aromatic air was so refreshing; I could
not help but to take a deep breath. Then, I felt so relaxed and happy all over
my body, with my spirit becoming refreshed.
I lingered on without any
thought of leaving. On the misty lakeside, I welcomed the gradually-rising sun
along with the land, to greet the wonderful and joyful day.
