and is not intent on arriving "

Crazy about Nature

March 29th, 2008

I guess I am still enrolled in the Lutheran Church at home, but there is no one church or creed with which I fully agree. For one thing, I am crazy about Nature, and almost worship it, but isn’t Nature the direct work of God?”

Olaus Murie 192

 Olaus Murie

Olaus Murie (1889 – 1963) was an environmentalist imbued with a natural spirituality. He opposed the building of monuments in places of great natural beauty. An article on him describes how ‘Murie’s philosophy and actions fit well into such Taoist principles as noninterference, nonaction, the importance— even the beauty—of death, the value of intuitive knowledge, and the sacredness of cycles.’ James M.Glover, Olaus Murie’s Spiritual Connection with Wilderness.
