We all have a sense that there is goodness in “natural.” That must be true because it’s probably one of the most abused words in marketing for everything from potato chips to face cream. What is natural living? Natural living is an acknowledgment of the rhythm of the universe in your own heart. That is it. It requires nothing more than understanding that you are connected to this planet and its people. And, as such that your decisions have power. Each person is already able to craft a form of natural living that is completely unique, yet entirely in harmony with all others. There are no rules to “natural,” in its definition it carries everything it requires for itself: respect, gratitude, wisdom, leadership, joy. In other words, Love.
While I wish I could end the book with that last sentence because I do believe, in its essence, it is that simple. The reality is we need some markers that get us from where we are to the true beauty of “natural.” We are bruised. We’ve been on long journeys through imbalance and consumption. In the moment that we decide to begin or continue our efforts to realize this ideal, we change. But the world does not necessarily reflect that back to us so quickly. We are left to wrestle our own desires and uncertainties in the face of a world that often looks decidedly un-natural.
