“Alone in the forest” is inspired by stories of people that disappear in the forest, and of mysterious events that happen at night when nobody watches.
I hear often people talk about being enlightened. What I hear is “oh, look at me, I am so good”. It is the ego talking I think. Go and sit in the forest on a dark night and see how enlightened you are.
Nature is so overwhelming and beautiful and frightening. Nature does not care about you, it simply is with all her mysteries. Luckily us humans can still discover so much in life, even the nearby forest (or desert) remains a secretive realm.
