Have you ever wondered why nature soothes, invigorates, inspires, and heals? It’s because, as Mary Baker Eddy states in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “Nature voices natural, spiritual law and divine Love…. Arctic regions, sunny tropics, giant hills, winged winds, mighty billows, verdant vales, festive flowers, and glorious heavens, — all point to Mind, the spiritual intelligence they reflect.” And that’s what is so interesting about the recent article on new treatments for PTSD – many of those suffering have found healing by snorkelling, hiking, taking care of animals, and through other nature-oriented therapy. God pours out his love and expresses his care in so many ways, and it’s heartening to hear of this opening up to His messages of health, well-being, innocence, and peace.
