The title has no metaphor, exactly what I mean, and as long as there’s no thorn invading my sole (foot), I totally love it. I recently visited a waterfall and what a beautiful experience. That peace and that sound of the waterfall which makes you realise it is ultimately the Nature which is superior and not the human, a human rather is a part of Nature and not the sovereign.
A major request, please don’t litter the places you visit. It hurts so much to see all those plastic garbage blocking the stream, littered on the rocks.
A barefoot walk is also good for your health as much as I have heard, helps in blood circulation probably. It makes you feel the oneness with Nature, makes you realise you are a part of it. Of course for many it would be a ‘Does it even matter?’. It probably does. I hope we spend more time outside our concrete walls, mud huts with their few inconveniences still give a feeling of closeness to earth which these 20 storey tall buildings we have built for ourselves never give.
If you are reading this, just pause and think of the last time you saw a sunset or a sunrise, as I am writing this I too am planning to see the next sunset. Give some time, just a few minutes to that experience. We don’t always need to make a visit to somewhere to feel close to Nature. Even in this concrete jungle around us we can make our moments. We can make our moments in the pristine beauty we couldn’t save and we can try to save and respect all that we are left with. It’s not just about joining a protest to stop deforestation, we can put our small efforts along with that, not wasting electricity, saving water, reuse, buying fruits and vegetables from vendors and so much more.
I know this is what we always hear, many of us follow, but how about becoming a little more serious towards it. Enjoy your time and respect and love nature.
