Image Collage by PeapodLife: Our FB Fav’s Featuring Screenshots of The Rainforest Site & Nature Heals, Nature Reveals
Yesterday was Earth Day, and as such you may have found yourself inundated by Earth Day messages. From hard-hitting, guilt-tugging proclamations to soft-spoken, heartfelt meditations and everything in between, Earth Day is the one day in the year ‘the gloves come off’ for environmentalists, and just those who care deeply for nature and the wellbeing of the planet and all beings.“But I give best when I give from that deeper place; when I give simply, freely and generously, and sometimes for no particular reason. I give best when I give from my heart.”Source: GoodReads – Quotes About Sharing
Fittingly, we couldn’t help but share our Earth Day Reflections via Genesis Eco Fund’s blog. But that was yesterday. Today, we offer a completely different take as a kind of ‘decompression’ after all the intensity and passion of earth day.
Facebook: love it or hate it, the mother of all social networking sites has redefined what it means to ‘like’ and ‘share.’ So today, PeapodLife wants to share some of the Facebook groups it likes with you.
The Rainforest Site
The Rainforest Site is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness, appreciation and knowledge about the natural world, and the weird and wonderful creatures who share this planet with us. From the profoundly serious and awesomely powerful to the utterly beautiful and heart wrenchingly adorable, The Rainforest Site never ceases to provide a steady flow of nature’s finest and funniest.
Take this post about Bao Bao’s fun frolic in the snow…
Or this post about baby sloths…
But it’s not just ‘cute’ posts that The Rainforest Site features. There’s this very recent post about the volcanic eruption in Chile:
Or this post about Conservation International’s film ‘Mother Nature’:
And the many simple yet profoundly beautiful images from the world of nature (not just the rainforest):
For their wonderful work educating and sharing all there is to LOVE about the natural world, The Rainforest Site gets a big ‘like’ from PeapodLife.
Nature Heals, Nature Reveals
This Facebook Community is all about sharing the simple, the beautiful and the profound. If there is a place on the Internet which captures the essence of the last stanza of Ode on a Grecian Urn…
…Nature Heals, Nature Reveals is that place."Beauty is truth; truth, beauty—that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."
Admittedly, some of the sentiments, posts and quotes they share will not always be everyone’s cup of tea (cynics and anyone repulsed by anything that sounds ‘too new-agey’ be warned), it’s undeniable that there’s something inside all of us which cannot help but be moved when confronted with images and words like the following…
It is almost a shame to introduce each of these…extra words are somehow just a diminishment of the beauty, wisdom and simplicity each imparts to us:
And of course, like many other Facebook pages, Nature Heals, Nature Reveals shares the best of the best of others as well…
We could certainly go on, but instead, perhaps will just provide a link to their PHOTO GALLERY.
What we love most about ॐ Nature Heals, Nature Reveals ॐ is that it comes close to capturing, in images and words, the essence of Peapodlife—if not quite the feeling you get from a PeapodLife ecosystem.
The simple sentiment, ‘nature heals, nature reveals,’ beautifully captures the essential benefits of inviting a high-order ecosystem into your home, workplace, school…wherever life demands you to spend the majority of your time.
It would be wonderful if we could all spend the bulk of our days out in nature, contemplating its beauty and meditating under its gaze, relaxed and able to receive a gift from its infinite wellspring of inspiration and imagination. But the reality of our lives is quite different; and the stressful, toxic indoor environments we are forced to inhabit are pretty much the antithesis of that dream of oneness with nature.
PeapodLife brings that dream to life once more; and brings the healing, inspiring and revealing power of nature into our lives where we need it the most…precisely where we currently have it the least.
Honourable Mentions and Final Thoughts
We don’t share everything we find on Facebook on our own Facebook page – PeapodLife Building Ecosystems & Technology – but we do try to share things that reflect our values and the spirit, essence and feeling of PeapodLife ecosystems.
That is why we often share posts from The Amazing Wild Nature, National Geographic and all other groups/posts which have grabbed our interest and attention over the years.
And of course, liking/following us on Facebook is one of the best ways to stay informed about us, featuring blogs and other original content related to ecosystems and living a happier, healthier, more peaceful and productive life…the PeapodLife.
