Nature Accepts And Abides By “What Is”, Why Don’t We?

Ever notice how human-made structures that’ve been in nature for long are just “incorporated” into it?

It would seem that, since nature comes out of the “whole”, it also understands that everything that exists comes out of the whole, and therefore anything that exists is always already existing as part of the whole so it is accepted unconditionally, unquestionably just because “it is”. So it doesn’t bat an eye at anything we create, but instead just keeps truckin’. Even to it’s detriment.

However, humans appear to have great difficulty facing the facts of the present moment’s circumstances. We’re constantly projecting “better”, or “worse” outcomes in the hopes of either acquiring something, or not acquiring/avoiding something. And it is this “lack of acceptance” of “what is” that we continue to pay the highest price for.

Is any of this true?

Please look to see if you can see what is being point to here for yourself. Observe like a scientist, impartially. If you’re partial to something other than what it is you’re observing while you’re observing, then you’re probably not really observing, and if you’re not observing then you have no chance of “seeing” and then really changing.
