    Every now and then i get a feeling, i feel desperate and sick about society, the one I live in, and all society's that's around, peoples behaviours, the endless problems that hunts me like a nightmare, it feel's like my soul is being sucked out, and my heart is starting to feel dry....

    I dream of living a simple life, just because for some reason I find it so appealing. I had this fascination of all that is natural, i love animals, the sea, the mountains, sand and water, my mind and heart gets mesmerized with whats natural in our world.

    I often seriously think, what if i just move out of society and head for the most natural, where can only meet a hand full of people, loads of animals, fresh air, mountains and rivers, go live there ........ fell my self with nature and all that is uncorrupted by humans, get really spiritually connected, and feel the natures natural healing power...

    impossible......... then again maybe possible

    Anybody has a deep love of nature, or do you think its just weird ?

    Totally know what you mean. We'd be better off for it, too... healthier, at least.

    Although I admire the Buddhist way of life. I am not a Buddhist, so I don't think they'll accept me

    but thanks for trying to help me find a solution

    Why do some humans seem to imagine that what is not human is natural, and how humans live it not natural. We are all products of the earth and the environment, we are all reducible to the same base matter.

    You don't like our society, buy a farm in Wales.

    You are right...to a lesser extent. I can't seem to explain to you the feeling of it, abandoning your materialistic possessions to go and live in a life of simplicity. Personally, I don't think I can do it, but I can only aspire to have the guts to do so...one day.

    by the way, you have made me crave for paella for some odd reason

    I should warn you that life in nature is not as enjoyable as it seems. You will get bored of it rather quickly and will miss the material confort of your old life. £££ will run out and there will be no going back.
    But hey, it's normal to feel this attraction to nature, our instinct since the stone age is to be hunters after all!

    :diep:

    just kidding, don't actually go around murdering penguins. If you want to see nature, go to those lost villages in France, eat the homegrown food, rejoice at the simplicity of life there and when you're ready, go back to england with happy memories and life won't seem gray and sickening, but exciting and busy.

    Just keep in mind that escaping is not the solution, you have to learn to be happy with what you have. Even little pleasures can become great joys with the right attitude.

    Cheers

    haha maybe so...I'm a city boy after all...but the thing is I don't want "£££" (as crazy as it may seem, I know) I would like to live off the land basically...I know I sound some stoned hippie (i'm not ) but it seems so attractive.

    hmm maybe I should visit France someday, thanks...I might just do that!

    Damn I was about to tell the OP to watch that movie for therapeutic purposes. It basically cures you of any obsession with nature you might have.
