Rachel Carson

“To stand at the edge of the sea, to sense the ebb and flow of the tides, to feel the breath of a mist moving over a great salt marsh, to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down the surf lines of the continents for untold thousands of years, to see the running of the old eels and the young shad to the sea, is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthly life can be.” – Rachel Carson

Commentary: The great author and environmentalist Rachel Carson reflects on how nature can move us and help us feel connected to deeper truths about ourselves and the world. Depth Psychology values the sense of wonder and inspiration that can occur when we spend time in nature. C.G. Jung loved the outdoors and he found a vital connection between its patterns and rhythms and the archetypal patterns of psychological life. As our senses awaken to the ebb and flow of the world around us, a deeper eternal knowing reveals itself within us.
