What is an enemy? How do you know who this so-called enemy will be? Does nature hold the key to answering these questions?
Enemy is defined as a person who is actively opposed or hostile to someone or something; a thing that harms or weakens something else.
I have been brought up to believe that anyone who doesn’t believe like me or those who don’t hold the same ideas as my country, is my enemy. I have even been taught that an entire group of people can be my enemies as well, but is this true?
I believe that nature holds the key to this, animals don’t have titles like friend or enemy, and the only thing they understand is body language and energy. Animals instinctively know when other animals are no threat to them, and which ones are a danger to their survival by how they act and present themselves.
Humans can do this with each other as well, they notice body language and they can feel each others energy, but usually this only happens when they are not too busy focusing on themselves, and are more aware of their surroundings.
I think we have all noticed that certain people give off a specific energy that either attracts us or repels us, energy that mingles with body language. We have all felt the energy and body language of a financially powerful person or a hooker.
Personally, I don’t like titles and labels, so I don’t like the title enemy and friends. Most of us know that people are fluid and a friend can quickly become an enemy, or an enemy a friend.
I challenge you, for one day, to drop these labels and really pay attention to the people you interact with. Really pay attention to those that are no threat to you, and those are a threat by tearing you down or trying to kill you physically, spiritually, and mentally.
You might just be surprised by what you find out.
About Mimic Nature
Hello everyone! I’m so glad to see you! I’m Jana, I’m an eccentric wife and mother; I work 2 jobs and homeschool my kids.
With all this going on in my life, I want to focus my attention on the things that make me happy, and the one thing that has made me happy ever since I was a little kid is nature. As my life progressed and changed through my teen years and my early married life, I lost my connection to it. Life took over and here I am living disconnected from nature because of work, bills, and every day events that keep me away.
So the next chapter of my life will be dedicated, at least in some small part, to reconnecting to nature; I still have a mortgage, work, and a family to take care of, but now, I will be more aware of nature and my place within it. Each day, I will find some small way to not harm nature.
Not long ago I was introduced to something called permaculture and I fell in love with it. Basically, it’s building a small ecosystem in your own backyard that is based off of what nature would do naturally. In turn your backyard helps you, and you help your backyard…with minimal work!! At first it may take more work, but over time, your backyard will become self-sustaining and you won’t have to work as hard…other than harvesting.
I love the life lessons that I learn from nature, so what I promise to do is share a lesson that I’ve learned from nature each week, share what I’m learning about permaculture, and share my own personal progress in changing my homestead into a permaculture Garden of Eden. And since it’s hard to make any changes in life, I want to have some free giveaways once in awhile…all nature themed of course, to help all of us remember our ‘green’ family.
