Forests, Humans, Philosophy

Forests are places which make us reflect on our existence. Their ecosystem, so unique and so holistic, make us wonder whether we should also try to be in harmony with the world as an ant in the forest is in harmony with the tree leafs. The forests gave Heidegger his inspiration for some of his greatest ideas. The forests frighten us at night, awakening primitive instincts long forgotten. Forests are a source of joy and refreshment on a sunny day, in ways that the human soul cannot utter in words. They were here long before we came into existence and will be long after we are gone. They are the guardians of existence.  Forests is part of us. They are our best philosopher friend and we should take good care of them. They bring out our inner self. And that can only be a good thing.

    Hi Skakos, I would be interested by using one of those photos for a project (with limited distribution). Are you the author of those photos ? Thanks to contact me at

      Hello my friend. No unfortunately no. I am not the author of these pictures, I have just found them in the Internet.

    Walking through a forest cathedral, in the silence of your deepest being, listen to the whisper of the trees that are dreaming of their awakening to spiritual life. Stilling your mind, at this time, just look and listen. The silent love and understanding you are giving the trees will be returned to you. At this time your spirit will soar to heights you never imagined. Such is the power of a forest given by God for humanity to enjoy in the silent wisdom of their hearts. However few are those who find this kind of joy, love and bliss.

    I think your point about “They are our best philosopher friend” is very salient. If we recognized biology as the communicator and ourselves as students I think we would be much better prepared to navigate toward a more satisfied experience of life. Thanks for the post and the pictures. Beautiful!
