Beyond Addictive Thinking:
Do this activity
Give yourself time to contemplate
each of the following questions.
Can you remember having enjoyed a good experience in nature
(with a natural area, plant, animal, or geologic formation)?
If you can remember having a good experience in nature, doesn't
it mean that experience is part of you, at least part of your
psyche and mentality?
As you strengthen your experience, won't it strengthen you?
Isn't it possible that more good experiences in nature will
add to your strength and spirit?
Ask yourself these questions:
What was feelingly enjoyable or rewarding about the experience?
What sensory attraction webstrings were involved in the experience?
Color? Motion? Sound? Gravity? Reason? Temperature? Community?
Place? Belonging? Beauty?
Were you taught to have this good experience in a class? from
a book? a person? or was it your natural sensory attraction webstring
connections to the natural area that provided the rewards?
Do you recognize from this experience that there are intact,
inborn parts of you that inherently and beneficially have the
ability to register attractive sensory contacts with nature?
Do you recognize that the origins of your inborn sensory parts
are in nature and, like water, you share them with nature?
Do you think, as with water, that nature has the ability to
purify and recycle your sensory nature?
Is your ability to reconnect with
nature still alive?
Do this Basic
Go to the most natural and convenient
natural area to you (even a potted plant or pet will do). Identify
a natural attraction (webstring) there that you like.
Stay in conscious contact with that
attraction for as long as it is comfortable, a few seconds or
Do good feelings and memories that you
have from previous experiences with nature in places or people
come to mind?
Did you in any way feel "better"
during this connection?
Do you feel better now?
Did the connection have value?

Too often we suffer and feel helpless
because the deterioration of humanity and the environment hurts
us and we are unaware of its cause.
Research demonstrates that the stress arising from our
extreme sensory separation from our nurturing origins in Nature
underlies most of our unsolvable personal, social, and global
