All of nature is patterned. If we look for the patterns as seen in nature, we can gain insight into our own lives. During the winter bears and squirrels prepare cosy dens and sleep for weeks on end, only waking up once in a while to get some food and sunshine. Animals like chipmunks, groundhogs and bats go into an even deeper slumber where their bodies slow down so much they don’t even wake up until spring. Knowing food sources diminish for them in the colder temperatures, animals like honeybees, beavers and mice prepare for winter by stockpiling their food, eliminating the need to go out at all in the barren cold. In addition the honeybees also generate heat inside their hive by shaking their muscles. And yet other animals, like many types of birds, amphibians and bugs migrate South, leaving the cold behind altogether.
So what can we learn from this?
