I highly recommend for everybody to take a trek into the deep woods that is around you, you don’t have to go that far unless your living in a big city, but to trek through the forest and see the true beauty of God’s creation, won’t just help you relax and unwind, but will also help you respect more of what is around you.
You see this Cascade and how it carved its way down this hill, this is made from nature over time and not by any man that walks his journey through life. We like this Cascade carve our own paths through this journey of life, we also dictate how this carving happens for us, sometimes the path gets carved for us and sometimes our paths are carved in ways we do not want it, like when a life event forces us into something we don’t like? A life event if we let it, will control who we are, what we become and how we carve our paths through this journey of life, these life events happen to all of us, some are bigger than others, but when we handle them properly, we can always control how we carve our paths through this journey of life.
This Cascade not only carves its way down the mountain, but can also be a great and natural source of drinking water, you see the green moss around this cascade? This is what truly purifies the water so clear, that there is no tap water anywhere, that is as crystal clear as this. Some Companies that bottle spring water and sell it to us, will say there water is purified? but the purification process by man, is nothing compared to the purification process of nature. This Cascade here runs down into a little pond by the front of a privately owned camping area, in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, right at the New York state line and the camp site here is tents only, everything is as natural as you can get within the great outdoors, the owner also takes the water from this cascade, turns it into ice cubes and sells it to the camper’s by the bag, so they can keep their food and drinks nice and cold, let me tell you these are the best tasting ice cubes, I have ever chewed on.
Myself and the Caretaker of this camp site, went trekking through the beautiful forest around us, he showed me things like this Cascade that are as natural as you can get from within the great outdoors and all this, most of us who walk their paths along their journey of life don’t even know it exists. Some of us are so consumed with living our lives that we forget that there is so much natural beauty around us and we try to make up our own beauty of whatever we can, including ourselves as we portray to others a fake side of who we are. This journey through life to some may seem long, to others it may be cut short? But the journey we all walk can be so much more, if we never forget all the true, natural beauty that is around us. God created this beautiful land for us to enjoy it and be happy, not for us to forget and take it for granted, so as we walk our paths along this journey of life, let us all take some down time, from time to time and reflect, as we enjoy all the true and natural beauty that is all around us.
” As the Cascade falls, let us all respect the true beauty around us and follow the path of the water, as it carves it’s way down the mountain”
” The natural purification of water from a mountain stream is not only refreshing and good tasting, but the most beautiful thing you will ever see”
