Shakespeare wasn’t referring to nature in terms of trees, plants, sky and the moon etc, when he wrote this, he was referring to nature as it relates to the nature of human beings, the fellow-feeling between us that connects us.
But when I read this quote, I don’t think of it in that context.
Nature - as in the sky, the stars, the trees, the flowers - comes to mind instead. And so I am choosing to continue to think of this glorious quote in the context of Mother Nature; that when we touch nature, whether with our bodies or our minds or our hearts, we can feel our connection to all beings. Because we are all connected to nature, we are all a part of nature. And it’s because of that connection to nature, that we are all CONNECTED.
What do you think of when you read this quote? What does it mean to you?
