Films > ignorance

In this world there is so much talking about saving nature but actually humanity believes more to be able to control nature instead of trying to arrange ourselves with it in harmony. We know what needs to be done, but we ignore it. We like to enjoy it but not with a clear vision and a full understanding.

"IGNORANCE" is my personal statement, inspired by a casual early morning walk around a local lake in the beautiful Vogtland. Every time it gives me so much inpiration and a peaceful mind which is one of the main reasons I´m strongly connected to nature. This connection and its impact on my mind as well as health is essential for my daily life.

I found a beautiful ode to nature by Ravi Sathasivam which I adapted and slightly changed. This one definitly brings it to the point:

"When the early morning sun breaks through the darkness
When the night tears dew spill morning from the sky
When the nature's tears raindrops pour down to the earth
When all those trees dancing in the breeze beside the lake
When all those daffodils and lavender fill the air with fragrances
When all those butterflies and bees fly high in search of honey
When all those wild mountain rivers are rushing through the valleys
When all those beauty of waterfalls grab heart of a nation
When all those mountain hills carpet with its greenery wonders
When all those innocent animals grassing on the hill sides
When all those bird's flight, as they climb and hover in the sky
When all those wild animals freely walk around the jungle
When all those seasons spring, summer, autumn, winter fill our heart with cheer.
 When all those trouble hearts, the nature becomes a smooth healer
But when, when will we finally stop ignoring you and being part of a larger whole."
