This picture is so touching to me. It sends out so many important messages. First that nature is something that is natural. It is not meant to be feared. It is where we came from.
It is sad that humans now are so cut off from where we should be. We have shelter and forget that we are not meant to spend all of our time inside away from our mother (mother earth)
There are lots of benefits to spending time in our natural habitat. Stress relief is one of those benefits. Being connected and barefoot on mother earth can help diminish feelings of depression and lonliness. This occurs because anyone that is grounded to mother earth at the same time as you is automatically connected. It takes those feelings of alienation and allows you to feel the connection to all that is. It gives a new meaning to the people of the earth being as one.
The earth actually gives off energies that are beneficial to our health and the more time you can spend connected to mother earth the better.
