The experiences we can have in nature are complete. In the growth of a tree, the falling of a raindrop, the running of a river, the blowing of the wind, the burning of the fire, and the constant change of these things, we can experience everything about our true existence. We can learn that there is no difference between the phenomena of nature and us. We can realize that everything that happens around us out of the natural order happens just as much to us and within us. We can let go of the idea of separateness and recognize oneness. Realize that our life is not different from the growth of a tree, the falling of a raindrop, the course of the river, the blowing of the wind and the burning of the fire.
The experiences we can have in our material society are incomplete. They are based on one-sided constructs of the material mind. Every place and time we are in this society is filled with man-made, material phenomena to the exclusion of the thought of oneness. In these experiences, which we have on the basis of these impressions, we find exclusively the separation. We find there exclusively our half-ness. We find there only that which is somehow not like us. And that is that to which we somehow can’t really feel like we belong.
