While traveling through Arizona, I had a profound encounter with a Native American man from the Navajo tribe. His weathered face bore the marks of a leader, someone who held immense importance within his community. However, I was taken aback to find him behind the counter of a gas station, donning the uniform of a Shell company employee. This unexpected juxtaposition sparked a realization within me – the loss of our connection to nature and the magic it once held.
The Disconnection from Nature
In our pursuit of progress and modernity, we have distanced ourselves from the very essence of existence. We have forsaken the wisdom of the old ways, opting instead for uniformity and conformity. The feathers that once symbolized freedom have been replaced by corporate attire, signifying the chains that bind us to society’s expectations.
The Transformation of Nature
We have manipulated the natural world for our own convenience, transforming majestic creatures like the buffalo into mere commodities, such as cows. While your people lived in harmony with the land and creatures around them, we have lost touch with the profound connection between humans and the natural world.
The Dichotomy of Thought
While your people seek solace in the stillness of the moonlit nights, we fill our minds with thoughts of finances and wealth. Instead of listening to the wisdom of our hearts, we incessantly chatter from our brains, drowning out the whispers of the ancient spirits that still roam the Earth.
The Erosion of Magic
In our relentless pursuit of material gain, we have lost touch with the enchantment that once permeated our lives. The druids, the witches, and the wolves – they have all faded away. Yet, their echoes persist, haunting our consciousness and reminding us of the lost magic we so desperately yearn for.
The Power of Silence
While we seek validation through external means, your people find strength in inner silence. Amidst the chaos, you nurture your spirits, embracing the healing power of solitude and introspection. In contrast, we drown our sorrows in noise and distraction, numbing ourselves to the true essence of life.
Reconnecting with Nature
Your people understand the sanctity of the earth and the vital importance of the elements. You pay homage to the water, the mother, and the bountiful gifts of nature. Meanwhile, we exploit, privatize, and commodify these sacred resources, discarding our responsibility to protect and cherish them.
Rediscovering the Magic
It’s time for us to awaken from our slumber and rediscover the long-lost magic that resides within us. We need to listen to the ancient calls of the wolves and reconnect with our primal instincts. Let us seek solace in the wisdom of your people, embracing their reverence for the land, the spirits, and the interconnectedness of all things.
Oh my oh my, where did all the magic go? In a world driven by materialism and external validation, we must reclaim our connection to nature and embrace the enchantment that lies dormant within us.
