Camping : A Cure to the Soul
There are two kinds of people in the world, I believe, one those who Love camping, and the second is those "who Have Not Yet Done" camping.
There is no kind of people who does not love it. Here in the thoughts I put down, why it is so essential to us. Though there are hundred reasons and effects that can be found, here is the three basic and most pivotal of them, according to me.
1. Time is a perspective.
From childhood, humans are trained to be time oriented. Our life is ruled by a dimension found by us and now dictate over it. Wrong as it is, we are merely slave of it un till you realize that it is nothing but a perspective. While camping, mornings necessary does not mean alarm clocks, you wake up yourself with the first rays of sun and chirping of the birds. You do not eat because there is a time to breakfast and lunch, but because you feel hungry! Hence, if you are regular to camping you give up the notion of worrying about Time and its concept as created by man. You just do things because you feel like doing it. Following this, you would not age just because the man made principles and a hospital document states it so, neither will you bemoan things that you have not done earlier, instead will figure out a way to do it when you feel it to be.
2. Worth of oneself.
When you camp in a vast meadow in front of a mountain or a ocean, often do we just roll our eyes in awe at the hugeness of the things in front of us. At night we might see the milky way galaxy spiraling the sky or uncountable stars making our roof. Well the awe is actually our understanding of how vast is actually this universe and its elements. I am sure everyone who has ever camped has had this effect. The magnitude and intensity of this elements are beyond our basic calculations, and then in a slight moment, you feel so worthless standing in front of them. You feel so insignificant, so small and so negligible. It is a good thing, we understand, our worth. Feeling insignificant also gives us the notion of how small is our worries and stresses. For all that is out of our control and we shall not change anything with our stress and worrying about it. It will result in making you feel free and unburdened with a lot of useless conceptions we are fed with. Hence, you shall live more happy and free.
3. Nature is the Cure.
We might invent and discover new techniques and machines, medicines and other stuffs, but we cannot mark our efficiency of curing abilities that of nature and its elements. From producing natural happiness and kindling peace in us to inspiring us to have a better living, nature is the solution to all our problems. The shiny green of the nature is the best cure to eyes, walking on green meadows in bare feet helps the best of blood circulations. No medicine can do such stuff guranted. Health is always kept up to mark by the touch of nature. No anti depression pills will work so magic as does a camping and your time in the open vastness. Hence, men can make medicines, nature makes miracles.
There are so many other effects One might feel when they go camping.
