Life should be playful, beautiful, curious, unpredictable journey of authentic discoveries. If you let it be.

Connect To Yourself Through Nature

By discovering nature's landscapes, you discover new landscapes in yourself. Going on an adventure is about learning and experiencing its beauty and, above all, exploring your own qualities as a human being. Through the silence of trees or the sound of waves, you can clearly hear your inner voice and start following your own dreams.

Connect With People Through Nature

People on one side of the world need people on another side, as everything is interconnected and interdependent. City people miss nature and lose delicate connections with food producers and life guardians, losing their understanding of natural ecosystems, making destructive choices through their consumption and lifestyle. On the other hand, village people know their neighbours, as they share fruits and joy of life together, learn from each other, care for each other. At least at weekends, walking in nature reduces stress, increases happiness, and makes us lighter and closer together.

Connect To Nature Through Nature

Many forget nature gives us life, not technology. Nature feeds us, watering us, shining on us. Maybe some new beings will exist only in artificial worlds in the future, but until then, let's enjoy our unique opportunity to breathe clean air, wander with world creatures, smell flowers and make our lives extraordinary and remarkable. As our social-ecological awareness grows. We are becoming more and more aware of how we need to preserve healthy nature for our healthy future.

Your 10 Actions To Connect To Nature

Understand Your Power And Your Responsibility

Care for nature is a dynamic process of growth, requiring determination, with trials and errors, ups and downs - as any meaningful endeavour and creative pursuit. Art Of Green Path LIGHT is your journey full of connection.

1. Directly EXPERIENCE NATURE

It is incompressible how we humans neglect our relationship with nature as we are already highly dependent on nature in terms of air, water, food, energy, metals, and all different resources. We need a healthy natural ecosystem - there is no other option to be healthy. To experience all these connections, you can try to recognise all links in your daily actions and consumption patterns to see how your choices influence, protect or destroy nature. So you can decide about different solutions for your less destructive and more protective role towards nature.

2. Immerse yourself with ALL YOUR SENSES

Just walking through woods fills us with serenity and joy. Seeing so much green and breathing forest air do wonders for our health, both physically and mentally. Another example is our interaction with domestic and wild animals - it makes us happier and more alive. Dog and cat lovers know what these creatures do to their state of mind. All top predators like whales, dolphins, sharks, lions, tigers and bears keep the balance of whole ecosystems and fill us with admiration and wonder.

But all other vital pieces of the life puzzle are equally astonishing, like primates, fishes, birds, octopuses, ants, funguses, trees, flowers, and millions of other species. With all our senses and knowledge, we can not embrace enough the beauty and importance of whole ecosystems where life flourish, like rain forests, coral reefs, mangroves, rivers, mountains, plains, and oceans. We as individuals feel so small compared to all nature, but we as humans hold critical answers to protect or destroy everything good we have.

3. Dare to EXPLORE UNKNOWN NATURE

Each of us is different, so for some, the unknown may be a forest outside their city; for others, it can be the heart of a remote jungle. Some can hugely benefit from daily spontaneous micro-adventures, as others feel alive on dangerous, adventurous expeditions. The range is vast, and many slip in between extremes. Knowing yourself and your needs can guide you through planning a personal adventure that can trigger your sense of aliveness. Exploring unknown nature can also start by researching and supporting global projects that protect biodiversity, wildlife or ecosystems. Or you can join local initiatives that make a difference, like raising children's awareness of nature or planning their activities in forests or by the sea.

4. Go on nature ADVENTURES with others

Many of my precious life experiences happened in nature, in different remote parts of the world, often in the company of my loved ones, my friends or people I met there. As some degree of solitude has its benefits, interaction with others often makes experiences profound and more valuable. Making fire, building a shelter or picking wild berries is more fun with others. Exploring rainforests or climbing mountains is much safer if you are not alone. Local people or guides have valuable knowledge about wildlife and plants, and the whole interaction gives more depth (like with my friend Balaram in the south Nepal jungle on trekking for tigers and rhinos). These people can even be your life saviours (like our guides on canoeing through the wild river Zambezi between crocs, hippos, elephants and buffalos).

It is interesting how people feel better outdoors, through walking or cycling, with wind and sun on their faces. Like all city hardships and life worries melt away, people become light and immerse into direct experience. Talks become more profound and meaningful, our sense of belonging deeper, and we feel gratitude for being alive on our mother Earth.

5. Feel the WORLD AS YOUR HOME

Each of us is lucky to be alive in this world at this particular moment on this Earth. We don't have any other option and will not have another opportunity. So what we can do is to feel fully alive. Feel connected with all people, all creatures and the whole ecosystem. Feel love for our home.

By consciously choosing our healthy lifestyle, healthy relationships, sustainable consumption and meaningful work, we can do a lot for the healthy future of the world. However, we can have fulfilled life only if we show respect and love for this fantastic chance of being alive.

6. Develop your ECOLOGICAL INTELLIGENCE

Intelligence or IQ (according to Merriam-Webster dictionary) is 1) the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations and 2) the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment or to think abstractly as measured by objective criteria (such as tests).

Emotional intelligence (otherwise known as emotional quotient or EQ) is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathise with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict.

We also have social intelligence, or the capacity to know ourselves and others. Social Intelligence develops from experience with people and learning from success and failures in social settings.

With all that in mind, we can define ecological intelligence as our collective ability to understand the human impact on ecosystems and act in ways that improve them.

Our survival on Earth obviously depends on all these abilities, but ultimately on our will to develop ecological intelligence in our personal and collective actions as the only right way out of this destructive mess we have created on Earth.

7. Understand OUR DEPENDENCE on the Earth's ecosystems

Throughout our history, it has been evident how humans depend on Earth. From hunter-gatherers over subsistence farmers to forming first cities, it was apparent that natural forces can give or take life. Connection with nature had existential, spiritual and emotional qualities.

But now, our ordinary city dwellers don't see this connection anymore. We have water on tap, energy at the push of a button, a range of food in supermarkets, a lot of stuff in shopping malls, walls and buildings as protection, cars as toys, smartphones as distractions. All these insulate us from the real world, fundamental natural forces, the natural process of food production, actual limits of energy in the world, dangerous pressure on ecosystems and natural resources. We feel invincible masters when we are not. Our artificial environment of entertainment and distraction keep us oblivious to real problems we are causing with our selfish, ignorant lifestyle.

According to an international team of researchers, four of nine planetary boundaries have now been crossed due to human activity - climate change, loss of biosphere integrity, land system change, altered biogeochemical cycles (phosphorus and nitrogen). Unfortunately, the situation in the other five boundaries also looks bleak, as we are not changing our wrong behaviours fast enough to prevent coming catastrophe for all life on Earth, including us.

8. Live CLOSE TO NATURE and love its creatures

Good examples of people who consciously moved away from the city lifestyle are ecovillages worldwide. An ecovillage is a traditional or intentional community with the goal of becoming more socially, culturally, economically, and/or ecologically sustainable.

Other examples are permaculture communities around the world. Permaculture is the harmonious integration of the landscape with people providing their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs sustainably. In other words, permaculture is a holistic, living-in-harmony-with-nature worldview and a technical approach for how to do so.

9. Use RENEWABLE ENERGY and save water

For those willing to stay in a city, there is the sustainable city, eco-city, or green city, which is a city designed with consideration for social, economic, and environmental impact. The UN Sustainable Development Goal 11 defines sustainable cities as those dedicated to achieving green, social, and economic sustainability. They are committed to enabling opportunities for all through a design focused on inclusivity and maintaining sustainable economic growth. The focus also includes minimising required energy, water, and food, on the other end, drastically reducing waste and output of heat, air pollution – CO2, methane, and water pollution.

The challenge with renewable energy is that we are only replacing old dependence on fossil fuels with a new reliance on non-renewable resources (like lithium and rare earth elements). Another challenge is that renewable energy sources (like wind and sun) are unpredictable and cannot provide on-demand electricity 24 hours a day. So there is a requirement for backups in the form of new dirty coal, oil or gas power stations or even nuclear power stations.

The best personal approach is to find ways to reduce energy consumption and car usage, adjust lifestyle and choose sustainable consumption while keeping well-being and natural connections. It directly protects natural resources and gives us a sense of purpose and accomplishment already.

10. Learn how to PROTECT BIODIVERSITY

Biodiversity underpins all life on Earth. There are 36 Biodiversity Hotspots in the world - hotspots are among the richest and most important ecosystems in the world. All our actions worldwide contribute to the health of these biodiversity hotspots. Everything is interlinked and interdependent. There is no way we can cut ourselves from other parts of the world as we depend on them for our survival. Our ignorance and selfishness are hitting us hard as boomerangs. Climate change consequences are only the tip of the iceberg of all negative consequences that are coming if we don't radically change our lives.

One worrying example is rainforest destruction. Of the approximately 14.5 million square kilometres of tropical rainforest that once covered Earth's surface, only 36 % remains intact. Just over a third, 34 %, is completely gone, and the last 30 % is in various forms of degradation.

Only our awareness and active, positive choices can prevent future habitat destruction like Borneo, Madagascar, Indonesian and Malaysian rainforests cutting, ice caps melting, floods and droughts, and food shortages worldwide.

Another worrying example is a problem with bees and other pollinators. As many as 40% of the world's insect species are threatened with extinction. 75% of crops depend on pollinators - they must be protected. Bees are vital for the preservation of ecological balance and biodiversity in nature. Pollinators are the unsung heroes of the global ecosystem.

We can protect biodiversity and ourselves through both our creation and consumption. Creating a new healthy lifestyle, building a new sustainable home, or choosing a nomadic minimalist lifestyle can be your actions with far-reaching impact. From the consumption side, we have many options to choose from already. First, we can buy ecological / bio / organic food that directly increases biodiversity and protects valuable parts of ecosystems worldwide. Second, we can buy MSC sustainable fish and FSC sustainable wood. Third, we can purchase FAIRTRADE coffee, cocoa, sugar, textile and other products to help producers in growing countries achieve sustainable and equitable trade relationships. Fourth, we can choose responsible tourism with a less negative impact on the environment and a more positive impact on local people by empowering them to care for wildlife in their areas while providing enough for their families.

Nature will survive without humans, but humans cannot survive without nature.

Not So Loving Relationships Of People And Nature

The wealth of our society is still measured in GDP dollars and the crazy doctrine of unlimited growth. All destructions of ecological resources and exploitation of human beings are omitted from any profit calculation. It is not enough that almost all money is made by banks through debt (by black financial magic), not from innovative and collective work by the majority of people - that is a widespread misconception. The invisible capital controls almost all national governments through corporate and economic dominance. So politicians work for masters of money and against people who elect them. That poisonous truth is hidden with massive lies of controlled media and through the illusion of democracy.

We are never meant to know the whole truth.

Ideological movements, especially those with extremist and religious contexts, are publicly and secretly funded by state and corporate interests. In the background of changes in government are often preservation of political influence, control of natural resources, trade routes, arms sales, economic exploitation and geopolitical dominance. To understand how the current system of profit accumulation is wrong, see this mind-blowing fact. Powerful global corporations use natural resources and services without paying anything for the destruction and degradation of the ecosystem or decreasing well-being and health for billions of people. They just don't include all such huge costs in their balance sheets, zero caring about consequences.

The money-centred world reflects our ignorant selfishness.

Billions of people are victims of that crazy gambling with the world's future. Caring relationships of people and nature are that transformative power we need to replace the mad system that is killing us all. There are many personal and social transformations that each of us and we as groups can do to stop the destruction and start creating something connecting and enriching. Instead of following the masses, we can shape our own path. We must stop believing what media lie to us and discover the real truth from uncorrupted individuals, alternative organisations and diverse enlightened people and unconventional websites. We need to go deep to understand models of our slavery. We need to connect and apply solutions to return our freedom. We need to use our life energy to create something beautiful, useful and inspirational.

We need to create ART that transforms destruction into GREEN PATH. What could be your art?

Recognize Patterns And Interdependence Inside Nature

Opposite to only taking from nature, we should start learning from nature more to find new balanced ways of living on this planet. That understanding should include global, local, macro, micro and nano interconnections. We have just scratched the surface despite all biological, chemical, physical, neuroscientific, anthropological, sociological, ecological, behavioural, and interdisciplinary research. We still need to successfully apply this knowledge in developing our creative environments, social-ecological systems, technological advancements, urban services, and the overall future of our sustainable living.
Ecosystem services, such as healthy soils, water circulation, clean air, mineral resources, climate regulation, nutrients circulation, pollination, and other countless cycles in the biosphere, are prerequisites for the right conditions for all life (including us) on Earth.
