For in the nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.
- Martin Luther
The next time your family complains about your behavior, you tell them, “That’s my nature.” That ought to get them off your back, and if you keep acting up long enough, they will eventually stop complaining. Of course, what they say behind your back won’t be very nice!
Why are we so resistant to having a second nature? Why not learn from others and change our behavior? Qualities that are useful in the business world lead to a higher rate of divorce and employee turnover. Why can’t our nature be one of kindness and willingness to change?
Nature is kind, though it has its stormy moments and its seasons. If we imitate nature, we can still be our true selves rather than protecting our artificial nature with statements that are excuses, explain nothing, and display our rigidity and unwillingness to come out from behind the wall and expose our real nature.
Let nature takes its true course with you.
