Nature forces are something which can be related by us, for it is inherent part of us . The core of us in-depth easily connects to nature. Religious followers are nearly cut off from the roots of the religion for some religion survives without connection to the nature itself. Such religion cannot survive when believers of the religion are able to connect with nature for in that awareness one becomes the one who posses the great knowledge of the relationship between nature and the human spirit and universal soul.
There religion might have had deep roots of identification with the cosmic principle in the very initial levels of the founder being in touch with the nature. But with passage of time it severed its contact and depth with the roots of the religion leaving a huge vacant gap in the understanding of the religious tenets. Those few even who even do recognize that what they have been knowing is only limited to them and expansion to the world will never be acceptable for majority are not even looking for knowing the truth.
This same philosophy can be attributed to many religions who still have connection with nature but the very essence of the nature is lost to them. So they look at nature and universal spirit in the most grossest terms and in that connection they kill the life of nature itself only leaving totemic remembrance of the true way. For in that shadowy remembrance one is more guilty, shameful and frightened for the very core they have disowned, triggered frequently by emotional difficulties in us and a aspiration for our intense need for admiration that we experience when we are with other people. The very core of us pushes us back, questioning the very moment we think as we are holding as our fortitude.
