The Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) in MN recently experienced the destruction of 160+ acres of land. It’s sad to see such a beautiful untouched wilderness destroyed but then again it IS the cycle of life.
Nature is always in perfect harmony. When the fire struck the BWCA it was nature’s way of saying it was time for a fresh start. It had been the same way for far too long and needed to be renewed. It’s nature’s way of making adjustments to be in harmony. Out with the old and in with the new. In the chaos of nature order will emerge and something new will be reborn.
Quite a few years ago I was in Yellowstone National Park and saw the acres’ of trees that were destroyed. Laid bare were the rolling hills of barren tree stumps and fallen branches. But if you looked really close you could see new growth already taking place. Little shoots of trees that one day would tower over the boulders and shrubs beneath them.
With that shift I gave a sigh of relief and realized everything is as it should be. Nature takes care of itself and even after a seemingly defeat it was already picking itself up with the seeds of growth.
Makes me wonder why humans can’t do the same, your thoughts.
