“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ― Albert Einstein

 

WHY GO TO THE JUNGLE…?

It would be a shame to leave this world and then not take the opportunity to go into the jungle; which would be like missing out on the opportunity of going inside the great ‘Temple of Mother Earth’.

The jungle is the place where the most sensitive natural antennas that decode ‘divine intelligences’ can be found. It is the greatest factory of medicines for the body and the soul.

It is the ideal setting to have a natural experience and to connect with nature.

REFLECTIONS IN THE CALM WATERS

JUNGLE MAGIC

“The earth has music for those who listen.”

 George Santayana

 

“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic — the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we‘re alone.” ― Charles de Lint

SOLITUDE

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.” ― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

STORMY SKIES

“Not just beautiful, though—the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they‘re watching me.” ― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

AMAZON SUNSET

“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it‘s a feather bed.” ― Terence McKenna

TWILIGHT

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”  - Ralph Waldo Emerson

SAMAUMA TREE

The Samauma tree is known in the Amazon as the “Queen of the Forest“ because of its great height which can reach well over 50 metres. Some Indian groups consider the tree sacred.

If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere. - Vincent Van Gogh

 

LIFE ON THE RIVER

"We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our hearts" - William Hazlett

LIGHT AND COLOURS

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more” ― George Gordon Byron
