We see our beloved Nature with our eyes, but we see not That which she hides:
That not registered by our senses.

-What do mean “hides Reality”? We see her clearly.
-What our senses perceive as our beloved and beautiful Nature, is her volatile appearance.
In reality she hides what our senses perceive not: Reality.

The text for 1 minute pitch Mighty old Nature  (above):
36  Mighty old Nature       

We love her, adore her, and she is giving, yields all good. What we can do in return of the gifts and blessings, is to transcend, nýsa niður. This is: giving in return. Meiðmar. She will be pleased, she will be peaceful, and care for us her little stupid naughty bairns. If we do not give back we are mere thieves. If we do not give back, only take and take, some disharmony will build up. We are all responsible. Nature can tolerate a lot from us, like a loving mother, but in the end, if we do not give back, she can take no more and will burst. Her way of bursting is no small thing.
Do you know that Nature is not any tangible stuff. Do you know that she is a veil, a cover, which hides away from our eyes Reality Itself. Do you know that we can easily transcend and get away from her triguna, 3 qualties, to reload our batteries, and to set our mind-set right, stop making mistakes and flaws, take no more than we really need?
I have the feeling that Nature was named bad skessa, man-devouring trolless, so that we should not love her. Rather men should pray, and show up in church on Sundays. But I doubt if that was the correct way to give her back for her blessings, as we did not stop exploiting, killing, and destroying.

More to ponder on:

* our only natural state is enlightenment
* then Nature provides for everything
* do we know that Nature behaves according to our state of consciousness?
* when we live an exalted state of consciousness, Nature is kind, but her tolerance can, in the end, take no more if we violate Her Laws:
* do we know that this is called: to arouse wrath of gods? even if it is Nature, not gods, who bursts
* our gods are the presidents of the Laws of Nature, preside over NL, so we understand the term
* are we to blame for calamities?
* are 1) Nature’s calamites, and 2) wars of the same human cause?
* are the Sodoma and Gomorra God’s wrath stories akin to Nature’s tolerance bursting?
* who claims Heathens to “believe in” logs and stones?
* note that log can mean a bridge over a brook, and stones often are landmarks, so log and stone can be indication to know one’s way;
but
* can we see Nature’s phenomena (such as logs and stones) to be a “cue” into That which She hides out of sight?
* do people “believe in” icons, idols, graven images, fetish, as such
* or has this tangible work-out another significance/meaning? hidden meaning?
* would believe in one´s own might and main be the same as atheism?
* would this self-confidence be a better tool in life, if we connect to, are grounded in, the almighty power within?
* what is the difference of 1)being a withered leaf in the storm (at the mercy of winds) and 2)to be anchored to the innermost unbounded power by the roots of The Ash, Askur Yggdrasils?
* as Nature is only Gungnir which we perceive as “matter”?
*where, then, abides the perfect order found in Nature?
* can we men learn to think and act from pure consciousness?
* do we know where from Nature’s gifts come?
* can we men outsmart the þursamegir III, 3 þurs-macs, triguna?  (3 qualities of Nature)
* what are the qualities of sattva? of rajas? of tamah?  (þursamegir III)
* are these three worldly qualities to be found in every man´s physiology? mind? actions?  in all created things and phenomena?
* is the aham-kaar, the I-making, I make myself as an individual on the sphere of the created?
* do I need to leave that ego in the sphere of creation, in order to get rid of the III þurs-macs, triguna?
* do I nose within Nature when I nose down, transcend, nýsi niður?
* can the man-eating skessa in the mountain be Mother Nature, invented as a tool to get men off the love for Nature?
* is it Nature-worship to admire the flickering beauty of Nature?
* or do Nature-worshippers claim Her to be something tangible?
* if we can call Nature a personification, then of what?
* can you discuss the meanings implied by Nature-worship?
* is Nature divine?
— if yes, then how is that view supported by rational thinking?
* is everything that is created divine in essence?
* is Nature a mythia (imagined to be visible but a non-existing fake)?
* how are we, in Hávamál 1st part (–behavioural code for the crude ones–) asked not to be greedy, take no more than sparingly needed?
and
* asked not over-indulge in food to the extent that others mock us for it?
* how does the phrase The Lord gave and The Lord took indicate belief in the unpredictability and duality of the world?
* does duality bring fear (–fear of the unknown, as all in creation is change–)?
* where is no duality, and thus no fear?
* is an enlightened man fearless?  what would he fear?
* who can create disharmony, discordance? disturb the perfect flow?  is that man (including both genders)?
* and can man also create harmony and accordance?

Til umhugsunar:

* hið eina eðlilega ásigkomulag manns er uppljómun
* og náttúran sér okkur þá fyrir öllu
* vitum við að náttúran stjórnast af vitundarstigi mannanna?
* náttúran er blíð ef við erum á háu vitundarstigi, en þanþol hennar brestur ef við gremjum goð að oss,  þ.e. stríðum gegn lögmálum náttúrunnar
* goðin eru forsetar náttúrulögmálanna
* eru náttúruhamfarir þá okkur að kenna?
* eru 1) náttúruhamfarir og 2(-) styrjaldir af sömu ósvinnu okkar sprottnar?
* hver segir að heiðingjar „trúi á“ stokka og steina?
* trúa menn á skúrgoð (skurðgoð/líkneski)
* eða hefur svona áþreifanleg/sýnileg útfærsla annan tilgang? táknar og hylur innri merkingu.
* er það að trúa á mátt sinn og megin sama og vera guðleysingi?
* virkar slíkt sjálfstraust betur, ef maður tengist ótæmandi mætti með rótum asksins?
* eða virkar sjálfstrausið kannsi ekki ef maður er fjúkandi laufblað?
* þar eð náttúran er aðeins Gungnir sem við nemum, hvar býr þá þessi alfullkoma regla sem í náttúrunni finnst?
* getum við menn lært að vinna útfrá tærri vitund?
* vitum við hvaðan gjafir náttúrunnar koma?
* getum við menn náð undirtökunum gagnvart þursapeyjum þrem, eiginleikum náttúrunnar?
* hverjir eru eiginleikar sattva? rajas? tamas?  (þursamaga þriggja)
* finnast þessir þrír veraldlegu eiginleikar í líkama og huga hvers og eins lifandi manns?
* er ahamkaar (ég bý mig til sem einstakling) á sviði skapaðs?
* þarf ég þá að sóa egóinu til að komast innfyrir Gunnana þrjá?
* nýsi ég innfyrir náttúruna þegar ég sóast?
* getur skessan verið móðir náttúra í áróðursherferð gegn náttúrudýrðkun?
* er náttúrudýrðkun aðeins það að dáðst að fegurð náttúrunnar?
* eða er nattúrudýrðkun að halda að hún sé bitastæð, sjá ekki að hún er mythia (ímynduð; gljúpt plat-yfirborð)?
* segjast heiðnir menn vera náttúrudýrðkendur?
* hvaða merkingar (fleiri en ein) eru lagðar í það hugtak?
* hvernig er varað við rányrkju í fyrsta hluta Hávamála?
* einnig varað við því að verða að athlægi við ofneyzlu?
* er eitthvað til sem heitir náttúrutrúarbrögð, eða voru brögð í tafli við tilbúning á þessu orði?
–(ath: aur í orðinu hvítaaur þýðir silfur, komið úr latínu aurum (framb. árúm))
* hvernig lýsir drottinn gaf og drottinn tók trú á veraldlegt tvíeðli?
* veldur það ótta að lifa í tvíeðli/andstæðum þess skapaða?
–ef já, hvar er óttinn ekki til, engar andstæður til?
* hver riðlar jafnvægi, og getur einnig skapað samhljóm/samræmi?
