Does living in harmony with nature make you grow as a person?

When I lived in UK I met many creative people interested in self improvement, spirituality and natural living. They were people from the cities, either London or cities abroad.

When I moved to India, I witnessed some breath-taking locations untouched by the Westernization bug. However in those locations people were all about blindly following religion and culture, without much independent thought.

Even to this day I wonder why generally people who are most in touch with nature are least interested in spiritual and mental growth.

    Nature offers with an alternative perspective, it somehow makes us think and reflect on our life. The moment we reflect on our life , we grow better and better each time we learn from the past ! Yes living in harmony with nature makes you grow as a person.
