The Truth You Can Trust
ARE YOU AWARE THAT the
greatest truth in your life that you can trust is not God images,
love, honesty, nature or spirit?
Your most trustable truth is what you experience in this moment,
or any moment.
The often hidden underlying truth of the matter is that the life of the
scientifically known life of the Universe that we live in produces its own space
and time, moment by moment, in the "Now." The life of the Universe is
Nature itself and all things in the Universe only exist in the Now including our thoughts, feelings, senses and acts.
For example, in this very moment you can fully trust the fact that you
are reading these words right now, ....or that you can sense and feel
the chair you are sitting on....or that you know that when you pinch
yourself, you are pinching yourself. You trust this knowledge
because it is happening. It is registering on you natural senses. They
are present now, it is a now sensation. You
can test it, you can determine that it is repeatable. This makes it

that you have learned and live by. However, you only are

you are quietly visiting an attractive natural area, backyard or
backcountry, Each Natural Attraction Moment there (also identified as the Unified Field or GreenWave or NNIAAL) is exceptional. Why? Because each moment contains attractive connections to
authentic nature's powers, purity and wisdom that register in your psyche. Even a short walk in the
park temporarily results in these renewing
and restorative effects:
Since the beginning of time, most things in the world,
atoms (and they make up the material world), along with energies in space, have been, consist of, and still are
held together by natural
attractions and the relationships they form. Again, these relationships only
exist in the immediate

matter its originating source, in
the beginning of our Universe was its Unified Field natural attraction for it to
proceed to live and grow as the recycling balance and beauty of nature, then and today. Our origins
were part of that process.
Today, each of us has inherited from nature the
sense and feel that same original natural attraction. It exists in
each whole life moment our lives, and of all life. That original attraction grew in to being wonderful and unique you
and I in the present, along with the rest of the Universe.
The acronym NNIAAL helps us experience it.
In present moments, we register and experience the original
natural attraction of the Universe as our undeniable 53 or more natural attraction senses.
For example, our sense
of thirst for water is one of our natural
attractions to live and grow in balance and beauty with the life of
Earth and the Universe. Similarly, the same integrity is accomplished
by our natural attractions to food, air, community, trust and place
along with our attractions to be conscious, reasonable, literate and
While in a natural area, when we don't suppress, mislead or omit them, in
congress together, all of our 53 natural attraction senses help us
think, feel and build relationships in equilibrium with the nature of the
Universe and its purity. This helps our psyche sustain personal, social and
environmental well-being by thinking and feeling like nature's self-correcting ways work.
When our lies and distortions
injure or misguide the wisdom of our inherent natural attraction
senses, our thoughts and feelings are warped. This causes our planet and
us to suffer great troubles and dilemmas.

Healing With Nature," notes that the science of Natural
Ecology makes a critical contribution because it is not just an idea.
It is also an applicable working model, an education and spiritual tool
to help us curb our excessiveness. He says, "Its use gives us the
ability to reduce imbalances in our psyche. It enables us stop denying
the fact that most of our misguided thinking and technologies

finds that we suffer because an unreasonable bias in
Industrial Society's stories rejects
that our planet acts like an attractive living
that we are similar to a cell in it. This bias leads us to
that we don't need to "Do onto Earth and nature as we would have them
do onto us."
A field report
about coming into balance, from one of Dr. Cohen's students states:
this Natural Attraction Ecology activity while sitting under a tree, I
heard the environment's callings. I felt attracted to look over my
head. The trunk of the tree against which I was leaning towered above
me with its leafless branches stretching toward the sky. It was like
each of those branches was an arm with hands and fingers trying to grab
the sun, the air, the rain....life. Without a thought, my arms
stretched above my head and my hands and fingers were reaching for the
sky soaking up the sun and air. Then the message was loud and clear: '
I sense, I feel the grace of nature's balancing ways; therefore, I am.'
Strong feelings of affirmation flooded through me. They alerted me to
the fact that just as branches reach high to take in the environment,
roots growing downward are grounded and that this branch-root
relationship maintains equilibrium while it promotes life. I felt
loving and devoted to these
fulfilling satisfactions that I sensed. I became aware that did not
need more than I already had."
pioneering mission of Project NatureConnect is to increase personal,
social and environmental well-being by helping individuals genuinely
connect their thinking and feeling with the sensitive natural
attraction intelligence of
nature's regenerative ways, in and around them. The online program's
subsidized and accredited training courses enable students to use
their 53 inherent
senses to make conscious sensory contact with the
natural areas, backyard or back country.
