As planned, we went to Sungei Buloh for a day trip. It was a great trip. Thanks to SC who drove us there. Nature has its own way of quitely taking our tiredness and weariness away. Entering into Neo Tiew Road entered us into a different world. A much more simpler world. However, still you find a great irony there. We visited Poison Ivy. It’s such an irony. Things that were done by the poor farmers in the past now become a luxurious hobby for some. Only the rich and the famous get to do farming here. Very interesting.
Anyway, getting close to nature means getting closer to our real self. As I walked into the trail, I felt as though I can hide nothing from them. At some points all of us were just quietly walking and communicating with nature with our hearts. It seems that we were trying to write something on the leaves and trying to tell nature about all our thoughts and sentiments. Then, nature will silently safe-keep them for us and no one will ever know. Quite an interesting thought.
There is a kind of energy that is coming from nature, every leave, every plant, every bit of sound and wind in nature that reach out to us…or perhaps we are trying to reach out to them. Perhaps the modern man has long forgotten his soul…perhaps the post-modern man has confused his soul…or perhaps we have lost our souls….and in every piece of nature, the soul of man still lies…..
