Nature

 

Black IsleWe often think of nature as the environment around us.  We talk about “going into nature”.

Widen its meaning to encompass the whole of the earth and all that is in and on it.  Widen it still more to include the heavens, so that it takes in all the universe.  Include yourself.  Then remember that all things have spirit, and that spiritual beings and powers wander, reside and manifest here in this Middle World.  All this is nature.

If we can invest our everyday rituals and superstitions with intent, they can become powerful ceremony to effect change by transforming part of nature – ourselves.  As a result of this transformation and the spiritual change that ceremony can effect, the world can transform – partly through our own changed actions resulting from ever-changing nature.
