hidden harmony ~

In the forest, there is an incomrehensible order that to the mind looks like chaos. It is beyond the mental categories good and bad. You cannot understand it through thought, but you can sense it when you let go of thought, become still and alert, and don't try to understand or explain. Only then can you be aware of the sacredness of the forest. As soon as you sense that hidden harmony, that sacredness, you realize you are not separate from it, and when you realize that, you become a conscious participant in it. In this way, nature can help you become realigned with the wholeness of life.

A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle
