You can’t win a gold medal or anything for that matter, disconnected from nature. We can play games, try hard, work hard and have occasional victories and even be determined but if we are disconnected from nature we will not win.
There are no short cuts. Every road has its bumps and it’s when we hit those bumps that being one with nature makes the difference. If we are disconnected we change tracks – but if we are at one with nature, we learn instead and then continue.
