We need Nature to free up our nature.
We are surrounded by the best of all
healing influences–fresh air, sunlight,
and beauty.

In India, the Hippocrates of Ayurveda,
a great physician and sage named Charaka,
prescribed some sunlight for all diseases,
along with a walk in the early morning,
and his advice will never grow stale.

If I find a green meadow splashed with
daisies and sit down beside a clear-running
brook, I have found medicine.
It soothes my hurts as well as when I sat
in my mother’s lap in infancy, because
the Earth really is my mother, and
the green meadow is her lap. You and I
are strangers, but the internal rhythm of
our bodies listens to the same ocean tides
that cradled us in a time beyond memory.

Nature is man’s healer, because Nature
is man. When Ayurveda says that the sun
is our right eye and the moon our left
eye, we mustn’t sneer. By bathing us in
the moon, the sun, and the sea, Nature
fashioned the bodies we inhabit.
These were the ingredients that provided
us each with our piece of Nature–a shelter,
life-support system, intimate companion,
and home for seven decades or more.

The discovery of the quantum realm opened
a way to follow the influence of the sun,
moon, and sea down deeper into ourselves.
I am taking you there only in the hope
that there is even more healing to be
found there. We already know that a human
fetus develops by remembering and imitation
the shapes of fish, amphibians, and early

Quantum discoveries enable us to go into
our very atoms and remember the early
universe itself.
