Inspiring Quotes of the Week...

Nature

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Nature
“Listen to the voice of nature for it holds treasures for you.” ~ Huron wisdom
As Albert Einstein said, "A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." Science and beauty are lovers, not strangers, in nature.
“Earth is a living Being, a wondrous alive Being, and earthlings have been misusing and abusing her life-giving energies. This must change. When you poison her, you poison yourself. What you take from her and do not replenish, you take from all, just remember that.” ~ Laura Lynn Scholl
Nancy Rynes explained thus: "While Earth has a physical presence and a history of its own, it is also the place we've been given for our life as humans, as well as for those who will come after us. It's here for us to live, play in life, experience love, and share in a deeper spiritual connection. We are intimately connected with all of nature; it gives us life. To mistreat it is, in the end, to mistreat ourselves."
“Why is it that people in the industrialized world tend to label as primitive those cultures that teach that man and nature are inseparable, when indeed this is the case?” ~ Charlie Badenhop
Nancy Rynes further said: "We can learn how to truly live in harmony with our planet. We can learn to love, respect and be truly grateful for the gift of life in this wonderful world. Earth is an expression of spiritual love in physical form. It nourishes our souls through its beautiful vistas; it gives us shelter, a place to call home. We can't live without it. Earth is a miracle."
“Nature best portrays the meaning of season. There is a time to sow and a time to reap; as the sun rises, it also sets; after the period of rest comes a period of activity; after the cool winter nights comes the warmth of summer. Whatever season it is, everything in nature adapts; otherwise, they perish. It is the law and the law is implemented even if one complains of ignorance.” ~ George Kengott
Our lives have seasons too and we adapt or suffer the consequences. So we do best to accept what we can't change while taking responsibility for what we can. Once we understand the nature of life, everything changes. Can a roller-coaster ride be exciting without steep falls and sharp twists and turns?
“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend. When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present -- love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure -- the wasteland of illusion falls away.” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
It is our decision whether we focus on the positive or the negative. But when we raise our arms aloft at the mountain top, or tread through the luxuriance of a forest, or paddle serenely in the middle of a large lake, or gaze upwards in the still of night at the Milky Way, we feel God by our side and it becomes so much easier to take the positive approach.

The Whole Universe Is Learning and Evolving.
How About You? ~ by Charlie Badenhop

Those who seek the frontiers of their creativity and who strive to reach higher levels of consciousness and wisdom, were described by Maslow as 'self-realizing' individuals. He described a hierarchy of human needs in which our basic survival is the first priority, and the needs concerned with our highest potential follow on when other needs have been met. Continues

The Beauty of Stillness ~ by George Kunnath

We are in the moment like the wind. Everything is "now" - it changes all the time like the wind. The wind blows all the time - from a gentle murmur of a breeze to a hurricane. Sometimes it is a cool gentle breeze; other times it is a strong wind; yet other times it is a whirlwind; some othehr times it becomes a storm and some other times a hurricane; between them it is movement and in the center is always moments of stillness.
