Since President Trump has been in office, I have noticed the media inciting a lot of fear amongst the American people. With tempers flaring and war discussed regularly on the news; it’s hard not to fear the fate of our country. But one thing I’ve noticed is that the flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest of them all. And it is important now more than ever to rewild and become more in tune with this planet. There is so much to learn from our earth and our animals.
One thing that we lack as a society is compassion for our brothers and sisters. But, if you watch animals in nature, they are always working together for the good of their species. I have said it before and I’m going to repeat it, there are no orphans among wild horses. If a mare passes, the baby is taken in by another member of the herd. If you watch beavers build a dam, they work together to build these dams. The dams protect the colony from predators and modify the structure of the ecosystem in a positive way. These are two key lessons that we could look at and apply to our society. The first being that we are all humans, so hate and prejudice just slow us down. The second being that if we work together to build and uplift our communities; not only could it affect and benefit us directly but it will also better the environment.
Instead of being fearful and staying stagnant, this is the time for us to speak out and do something about what’s going on in the world. I encourage you all to rewild and return back to the essence of who we are. Resources are becoming sparse due to our lack of appreciation for the things this planet has given us to ensure we wouldn’t be in this position. In my blog about my interview with Mo Brings Plenty I spoke on water wars. I didn’t mention that to incite fear. It was to encourage us as a people to do right by our planet, and make sure our children and our children’s children have a world to live in that isn’t contaminated and polluted beyond repair.
I was told as a child that fear was a tactic of control, so I refuse to allow fear to deter me from living. But I know diamonds are made in pressure so this is our time to shine and truly make a change, and the change starts with you. So, I encourage you all to take the time out and think of ways you can rewild because it is a personal experience for each of us. The Earth needs us and we need the Earth. So, let’s do what we must to create a world conducive for every one of us.
