Connecting with Nature: A Doorway into Presence Miniseries – Part 3


In the hustle and bustle of daily life, finding moments of peace and presence can be quite challenging. However, there is a simple yet powerful way to reconnect with ourselves and tap into a deeper sense of awareness – connecting with nature. In this article, I will share my personal experiences and insights from the “Doorway into Presence Miniseries,” a 4-part program with the renowned spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle. Through this program, I have learned valuable lessons on the profound impact nature can have on our well-being and how it can bring us closer to the present moment.

  1. Immersing Myself in Nature: Eckhart Tolle’s Recommendation

Nature has always been known to have a rejuvenating effect on our minds and bodies. As Eckhart Tolle emphasizes in the miniseries, immersing ourselves in nature is a powerful way to reconnect with our innermost essence. From the gentle rustling of leaves to the majestic beauty of mountains, nature’s wonders have the ability to captivate our senses and bring us into a state of deep presence.

  1. Quieting My Mind and Being Present in Nature

When I step into nature, I am immediately greeted by a sense of tranquility. In this beautiful and serene environment, my mind naturally begins to quiet down. The worries and stresses of everyday life are momentarily set aside, and I enter into a space where my thoughts become still. It is in this state of quietude that I can truly be present with the surroundings and connect with the essence of nature.

  1. Taking in the Totality of My Surroundings: Eckhart Teaches Me

Through the “Doorway into Presence Miniseries,” Eckhart Tolle teaches me the importance of taking in the totality of my surroundings when connecting with nature. Rather than focusing solely on individual elements, such as a single flower or a single tree, I am encouraged to expand my awareness and witness the entire landscape. This shift in perspective allows me to experience nature in its entirety and feel a deep sense of connection to the world around me.

  1. Using All My Senses to Connect with Nature

As I immerse myself in nature, I am reminded to engage all my senses. I can feel the earth beneath my feet, the gentle caress of the wind on my skin, and the warmth of the sun on my face. I can hear the melodious tunes of singing birds and the soothing sound of flowing water. I can smell the earthy scent of the forest and taste the sweetness of freshly picked berries. By using all my senses, I am able to fully experience the beauty and wonder of nature.

  1. Finding the Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Nature has an innate ability to reveal the extraordinary even in seemingly ordinary things. As I explore the natural world with a sense of curiosity and wonder, I am delighted to discover intricate patterns on leaves, vibrant colors in flowers, and the delicate balance of ecosystems. The miniseries has taught me to appreciate the intricate details and profound wisdom that can be found in every aspect of nature.

  1. Experiencing a Deep State of Connectedness

By connecting with nature, I have experienced a profound sense of interconnectedness. As Eckhart Tolle explains, there is a oneness between me and nature when I let go of concepts and separation. I am no longer just a separate individual, but rather a part of the intricate web of life. This feeling of connectedness brings about a deep sense of peace and belonging, allowing me to tap into a state of presence and unity.


Connecting with nature is a powerful doorway into presence. Through Eckhart Tolle’s “Doorway into Presence Miniseries,” I have learned to appreciate the transformative effects that immersing myself in nature can have on my well-being. By quieting my mind, taking in the totality of my surroundings, and using all my senses, I am able to connect with nature on a profound level. In this connection, I find a deep state of presence and feel the interconnectedness between myself and the natural world. So, let us embark on this journey into nature and discover the incredible gifts it has to offer.
