NATURE AND YOU
Many years ago, especially in Indigenous communities, people were in tune with nature. Nature’s harmony and the human happiness were considered one. What happened outside of us, happened within. But now, with time and technology, we have lost touch. Concrete has replaced trees, paint has replaced grass and billboards advise us rather than the deeper sentiments of our own intuition. As our culture evolves into the future, we see the signs of how our world and its people will suffer the separation from nature. As the pace speeds up, pharmaceuticals replace integrity, righteousness replaces kindness. We will suffer more and more from the separation from working with the land. We must try to reconnect, to understanding her (natures) rhythm and acknowledge the world of nature for her sustenance.
As we modernise, we seem to move away from harmony with nature, this breeds disrespect but worst of all, we become disconnected from her teachings. This work is about the opportunity to reconnect with the harmony of nature and in so doing reconnect with what is natural within us. The true power of the human spirit is harmonious, interconnected and very much alive.
Indigenous Respect Begins with Self Awareness
A rhythm exists in the deepest levels of our being. The person who attunes themselves both externally and internally to what is natural, will possess an insight to the essence of the whole universe. This harmony, this rhythm, is a capacity that could change the world. Great composers, artists and inventor’s have always had the capacity to be authentic, to cut past the surface and dwell, even for moments at the depth of what is natural.
Every person in the world should train themselves to depend on themselves as much as possible. Societies are based on interdependence of people and this is healthy; but in this interdependence there is dire need to be self-aware, self-driven and self-conscious. Self awareness, is a trait that has not been cultivated in our society, but that is part of life. To be self aware is as important as to be generous. One makes you strong and the other makes you human. It is much easier to be generous if you are so selfish that it is no problem to be generous. Generosity from a minimal place is hypothetical.
It is therefore the decree of nature to cultivate for people self-awareness.
Make yourself a power in your day, if not in the world. Workout your own destiny. Be an architect of your own life on earth first. Learn self-reliance. Keep wholly within bounds of right dealings with all others, and then you will be able to show a generosity with the things self-fullness has accumulated. You cannot give what you haven’t got.
Many theorists believe that the ultimate end of civilization is a calm and beautiful peace. The reply to this belief is the assault the nature makes on peaceful people. Peace inactivity leads to weakness and death. Sickness and disease – ill health is caused by inactivity, not the excess of it. Today, we seek rest, television and easy food, and there are 8000 diseases, and as many remedies.
It Begins with Total Human Awareness.
Many urbanised and theory based human development practitioners in the West have made the mistake of compartmentalising the development of people with the aim of increasing personal wellbeing and happiness (productivity) and yet, the total human being, the heart, quality of life, relationship and other aspects of the human condition have been ignored. As we enter an era of hyper accelerated decision making the demands on individuals to bring their total capacity to work, including their heart, creativity, inspiration and non rational intellect, means we need a new understanding of “the Total Human Dynamic.” In nature we are people first and fragmentation doesn’t exist. Indigenous respect embraces nature as a teacher and a source of inspiration away from those Urban compartmentalised teachings.
Why We Use Nature and Traditional Methods
Recent advancement in our understanding of natural systems, coupled with a growing understanding of the subtle neurological and physiological functions associated with contact with nature, have allowed us to identify the elements of executive performance improvement. With this we have strategies to increase economic gains, improve productivity, and strengthen the social fabric of communities without leaving town. Although the cognitive benefits of biophilia are still well studied by the scientific community, the economic benefits of biophilic thinking are usually accrued anecdotally or through trial and error. With Innerwealth Technologies in place, this improvement is changing rapidly.
Neuroscientists have found that views of complex, dynamic natural scenes trigger many more interactions of the mu (opioid) receptors in the large rear portion of the visual cortex. Viewing nature is literally a pleasurable experience. Views with less visual richness, such as a blank wall or a tree-less street, are processed in the small forward portion of the visual cortex and trigger far fewer of the mu receptors, triggering less pleasurable mental reactions (Biederman & Vessel, 2006). In contrast, movement in a natural setting, such as waves, leaves in a breeze, fish swimming in an aquarium, or a flickering fire, capture and hold our attention.
Other physiological effects of exposure to nature are well documented. For example, the effects of walking through forest atmospheres versus urban areas have been documented by comparing the salivary cortisol, blood pressure, and heart rate of subjects. On average, salivary cortisol (a stress hormone) was 13.4-15.8% lower, pulse rate was reduced by 3.9-6.0%, and systolic blood pressure was lower in individuals who walked through the forest, compared with those who walked through urban areas. Most impressive, overall parasympathetic activity— which occurs when we feel relaxed— increased by 56.1%, whereas sympathetic activity—which occurs when we feel stressed—decreased by 19.4% in subjects who walked through the forest (Park, 2010). These studies support Kaplan and Kaplan’s Attention Restoration Theory (ART): that nature serves as a positive restorative environment for humans and is an effective platform for stress management, health promotion, psychotherapy, and disease deterrence.
Biophilic thought modelling – Traditional Practices – Indigenous Respect to Reduce Stress
Stress is a known cause of both mental health disorders and cardiovascular diseases. According to the World Health Organization, mental health disorders and cardiovascular diseases are expected to be the two prime contributing factors to illnesses worldwide by 2020 (WHO, 2008). (NOT INCLUDING THE COVID19 Virus)
Treatment for cardiovascular disorders accounted for $1 of every $6 spent on healthcare in America (cDc, 2011). If workers are faced with nowhere to relieve stress in the office, the premature onset of psychiatric, stress-induced, and anxiety-related illnesses can surface (cDc, 2011). Studies show that our ability to directly access nature can alleviate feelings of stress, thus bolstering the case for biophilia in the workplace (Grahn & Stigsdotter, 2010).
Heartbeat has been measured in natural and urban environments in relation to spatially selective attention. After test subjects viewed videos of the two aforementioned environments, their heart beat interval results suggested that videos depicting natural environments had an involuntary relaxing effect on autonomic functions, inducing positive cardiac deceleration as well as beneficial physiological arousal (laumann et al., 2003).

Real Spirit – A Real Breakthrough Experience
A master in the art of Living Draws no sharp distinction between their work and their play, their labour and their leisure, their mind and their body, their education and their recreation. They hardly know which is which. They simple pursue their vision of excellence through whatever they are doing and leave others to determine whether they are working or playing. To themselves, it always seems to be that they are doing both.
