What’s Revealed in Nature… When the ecological balance is disturbed, plants and marine life begin to die.
Teaches Us… When our lives become unbalanced, our growth, vitality and inner energy stop being renewed and we become stagnant.
We have all read about how once-healthy lakes became polluted and the marine life disappeared. Or how, in some rivers or lakes where the marine life is not completely dead, the growth has been retarded, and the size of the fish are much smaller than before. Lake Erie experienced loss of marine life in its polluted state 30 or so years ago.
Similarly, our growth as a human being is stifled when our lifestyle becomes unbalanced. The vitality and the inner energy stops renewing itself, and we feel restless and tired. We go through the motions. We may even have many external trappings of success, but feel unfulfilled as human beings.
