Some lost questions of modern humans:
- When was the last time you stood on real, natural ground?
- When was the last time you took in a whole day without distracting yourself with a human-made device?
- When was the last time you got into a flat-footed, resting squat? (a vital positon that evolved with human physiology, over millions of years – largely forgotton due to the relatively new
curseadvent of the chair)
It seems the more intelligent we get, the more inventions we create, the more we stray from our mother nature. And the more we stray from mother nature, the more we end up hurting her and ourselves (global warming, animal extiniction, etc).
However, public enemy number 1 is probably the creation of “time”. Essentially, we created time to help us measure change as a collective. But it has mutated into a tormentor, constantly reminding us of our painfully slow progress, our overdue opportunities, our pending doom….
Time has even learned how to kill: Most people decide to have a heart attack or sudden death on Monday morning – a great way to avoid that work week.
These days I make it a point of regularly going “home” to areas of nature, and rediscovering and maintaining my body’s natural mechanics. I believe that a long, healthy life is in direct correlation to how natural your lifestyle is.
What do you think about us modern humans straying from nature?
