To live might have different meaning depend on which type of life that one has lived in this world today, but in spite of all the evolution and convention one must seek to know the reason of living that can only be learned from nature. Exploring the truth of what is not only accepting what people tell you to be the truth. Sometimes one must go in depth to the heart of reality to understand for himself the truth of things.
One must think his own thought, not what some fools have placed into his mind. Sometimes one must take his own destiny into his hand take control of himself and not be listening to what other’s asking him to do, for most of the time they are taking advantage of ones naiveté.

Be your own witness of what nature is for it is not always good to be hearing what others have to say about the surrounding, one must experience it to understand it. Nowadays with all the technologies people do not experience the nature they do not know what a natural alarm clock sounds like with what kind of melody that the night is introduced and what is an amazing choir of nature is rocking human to sleep. In his text Thoreau explained all the noise of nature truthfully he enjoyed it. Be in nature and not knowing how it sounds like is like living under the same roof with one’s own mother and not even understand the tone of her voice.
