Of course, forests can’t hug you, but if you have spent time in nature, you know that it can make you feel just as good as a hug, especially when you really need one.

You might be asking why I’ve posted this video since it’s not really about how we can save our forests. But here’s the deal, if you can remember how good it feels to be out in nature, then hopefully you will want to take care of all the places where nature as been allowed to remain pristine. EE is about inspiring you to engage your Compassion, meaning don’t just feel bad that our world is being attacked by the gobblers of profits, find something you’re passionate about and take action.

I especially like where at the end of the video it talks about being able to carry the forest within you. That’s when your life is changed by nature, in a very beautiful way.

I have been fortunate to travel the world. The happiest people I met all lived close to nature. Their lives were simpler, and compared to all the goodies people expect in the Western cultures, they are poor. But one thing I hope you’ll begin to comprehend is that the more stuff you have, the less happy you are. When you connect with nature, your desire for stuff falls away. It becomes about you being with you, the real you, the heart and soul of what makes you YOU. That’s what nature will do for you. Let us do everything we can to make sure that nature is allowed to stay as it is.

More than anything else I’ve found, The Zeitgeist Movement Defined, Realizing a New Train of Thought, gives me more hope that a beautiful future is possible for all. Not right away, though. We all need to shift our thinking, open our hearts, and awaken to a new way of seeing the world. If you truly want to heal the planet and build a better future, download this book for free. I am on my second reading, have watched all three Zeitgeist Documentaries, posted here on EE, along with some of Peter Joseph’s interviews. Consider joining or starting a Zeitgeist Chapter where you live.
