The Chinese have a word for nature that when translated means ‘that which happens of itself,’ that’s nature for you. It’s a perfect description.
That which happens of itself…
From the small blades of grass, the flowers in hedgerow, the birds of the sky are all without origin and without creator, they simply happen of themselves.
All life happens of itself, all nature, all things, the entire universe happens of itself.
From this we can determine that it’s alive, unfolding exactly as it should, happening of itself. The whole universe is alive and it’s beautiful, as it should be, because it’s all you.
