At the beginning of 2010, through learning more and more about the law of attraction, I began to ‘see’ my world differently. Now, whenever I go out into nature I am totally amazed at the beauty that I see all around me that I was oblivious to before. I am especially attracted to trees and even when I’m driving along I am also admiring the trees along the road!

To live simply in the meadow where the sun and rain are sent;

As I listen to the music of a bird’s delightful song.

Lydia Maria Child 1802 – 1880

Some of the wisdom is in our minds. All of the wisdom is from the Spirit of God.

To draw the nations out of doors.

The April winds are magical
And thrill our tuneful frames;
The garden walks are passional
To bachelors and dames.
The hedge is gemmed with diamonds,
The air with Cupids full,
The cobweb clues of Rosamond
Guide lovers to the pool.
Each dimple in the water,
Each leaf that shades the rock
Can cozen, pique and flatter,
Can parley and provoke.
good fellow, Puck and goblins,
Know more than any book.
Down with your doleful problems,
And court the sunny brook.
The south-winds are quick-witted,
The schools are sad and slow,
The masters quite omitted
The lore we care to know.
Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803 – 1882

Lies bathed in joy;

Without cloud, in its eyes;
And the sum of the world
In soft miniature lies

We thank Thee, Lord; for all the little things
That make the love and laughter of our days
For home and happiness and friends, we praise
And thank Thee now.

Walter Hagen 1892 – 1969

I asked the leaf whether it was frightened because it was autumn and the other leaves were falling. The leaf told me, “No. During the whole spring and summer I was completely alive. I worked hard to help nourish the tree, and now much of me is in the tree. I am not limited by this form. I am also the whole tree, and when I go back to the soil, I will continue to nourish the tree. So I don’t worry at all. As I leave this branch and float to the ground, I will wave to the tree and tell her, ‘I will see you again very soon.’” That day there was a wind blowing and, after a while, I saw the leaf leave the branch and float down to the soil, dancing joyfully, because as it floated it saw itself already there in the tree. It was so happy. I bowed my head, knowing that I have a lot to learn from the leaf because it is not afraid – it knew nothing can be born and nothing can die.

Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.
Thich Nhat Hanh 1926

When you plant a lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet, if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.
Thich Nhat Hanh 1926

When you walk across the fields with your mind pure and hold, then from all the stones, and all growing things, and all animals, the sparks of their Soul come out and cling to you, and then they are purified and become a holy fire in you.

How beautiful it is?

When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with
The music of many leaves
Which in due season fall and are blown away
And this is the way of life

The summer days are come again
With sun and clouds between
And, fed alike by sun and rain
The trees grow broad and green
Spreads broad and green the leafy tent
Upon whose grassy floor
Our feet, too long in cities pent
Their freedom find once more

The summer days are come again
Once more the glad earth yields
Her golden wealth of ripening grain

And breadth of clover fields
And deepening shade of summer woods
And glow of summer air
And winging thoughts, and happy moods
Of love and joy and prayer

The summer days are come again
The birds are on the wing
God’s praises, in their loving strain
Unconsciously they sing
We know who giveth all the good
That doth our cup o’erbrim
For summer joy in field and wood
We lift our song to Him
Samuel Longfellow 1819 – 1892

‘Tis winter now; the fallen snow
Has left the heav’ns all coldly clear
Through leafless boughs the sharp winds blow
And all the earth lies dead and drear

And yet God’s love is not withdrawn
His life within the keen air breathes
His beauty paints the crimson dawn
And clothes the boughs with glittering wreaths

And though abroad the sharp winds blow
And skies are chill, and frost are keen
Home closer draws her circle now
And warmer glows her light within

O God! Who giv’st the winter’s cold
As well as summer’s joyous rays
Us warmly in Thy love enfold
And keep us through life’s wintry days

Samuel Longfellow 1819 – 1892

John Lubbock

The American Indian is of the soil, whether it be the region of forests, plains, pueblos, or mesas. He fits into the landscape, for the hand that fashioned the continent also fashioned the man for his surroundings. He once grew as naturally as the wild sunflowers, he belongs just as the buffalo belonged.
Luther Standing Bear (Chief) 1868 – 1939

The old Lakota was wise. He knew that a man’s heart away from nature becomes hard. He knew that lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to lack of respect for humans, too. So he kept his children close to nature’s softening influence.
Luther Standing Bear (Chief) 1868 – 1939

We did not think of the open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, the winding streams with tangled growth as wild. Only the white man was nature a wilderness, and only to him was it ‘infested’ with ‘wild’ animals and ‘savage’ people. To us it was tame. Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery.
Luther Standing Bear (Chief) 1868 – 1939

Some people FEEL the rain.. Others just get wet.
Bob Marley 1945 – 1981

Knowing that you and God and every other of God’s creations are inseparable is love. Knowing that Earth is a sentient, conscious life herself and respecting all of her life forms is love. Realizing that no one can know others at Soul level and therefore does not judge them, but rather does not condone an action seen as injurious, is love.
Matthew-Suzanne Ward

Listening to one’s Godself is love. Living the kind of life that engenders loving self is love. Feeling joy yourself when you see it in others is love. Doing something that brings joy to another is love. Forgiveness of self and others is love. Sharing your resources with full heart is love. Doing good deeds without attaching expectations is love. Feeling peace of heart and mind is love. The quiet thrill of seeing a sunset or hearing a songbird is love, and a smile is one of the simplest and most radiating expressions of love.
Matthew Ward-Suzanne Ward

We call upon the earth, our planet home, with its beautiful depths and soaring heights, its vitality and abundance of life, and together we ask that it… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the mountains, the Cascades and the Olympics, the high green valleys and meadows filled with wild flowers, the snows that never melt, the summits of intense silence, and we ask that they… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the waters that rim the earth, horizon to horizon, that flow in our rivers and streams, that fall upon our gardens and fields and we ask that they… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the land which grows our food, the nurturing soil, the fertile fields, the abundant gardens and orchards, and we ask that they… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the creatures of the fields and forests and the seas, our brothers and sisters the wolves and deer, the eagle and dove, the great whales and dolphin, the beautiful Orca and salmon who share our Northwest home, and we ask them to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon all those who have lived on this earth, our ancestors and our friends, who dreamed the best for our future generations, and upon whose lives our lives our built, and with thanksgiving, we call upon them to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

Never has the Earth been so lovely nor the sun so bright, as today.
Nikinapi (Chief) – c.1750

Consider a Tree
The Symbol of Life
One living totality of consciousness
The Oneness of being to which we all belong
Always connected, never separate or apart
The trunk as our Creator, the Source of all Life
The divine dividing branches, our soul family, our connection to source
Each individual twig, a unique soul, our higher selves
The roots below ground, invisible helpers, our guides on the other side
A vital support system providing nourishment and growth
And the leaves that bloom each spring, our human incarnations
Fragile and green, beautiful to behold, but short lived
That shed every autumn, only to be reborn anew every spring
Yet it is our destiny, our mission, our greatest purpose
As collective branches on the Tree of Life
To evolve, to be transformed, and Ascend
To become… Evergreen
Shining with an inner light

David Nova

O Nature Quotes

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. to someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.
Cynthia Occelli

Whenever, in the course of the daily hunt, the hunter comes upon a scene that is strikingly beautiful, or sublime – a black thundercloud with the rainbow’s glowing arch above the mountain, a white waterfall in the heart of a green gorge, a vast prairie tinged with the blood-red of the sunset – he pauses for an instant in the attitude of worship.

Georgia O’Keeffe 1887 – 1986

All living creatures and all plants derive their life from the sun. if it were not for the sun, there would be darkness and nothing would grow – the earth would be without life. Yet the sun must have the help of the earth. If the sun alone were to act upon animals and plants, the heat would be so great and they would die, but there are clouds that bring rain, and the action of the sun and earth together supplies the moisture that is needed for life. The roots of a plant go down, and the deeper they go the more moisture they find. This is according to the laws of nature and is one of the evidences of the wisdom of Wakan Tanka.
Okute aka Shooter
From my boyhood I have observed leaves, trees, and grass, and I have never found two alike. They may have a general likeness, but on examination I have found that they differ slightly. It is the same with animals… it is the same with human beings, there is some place which is best adapted to each…

Nothing in the world is single
All things by a law Divine
In one spirit meet and mingle
Why not I with thine?

Love is like the wind.. You can’t see it but you can feel it.
Nicholas Sparks 1965

Everything is beautiful in it’s own way. Like the starry summer night, or a snow-covered winter’s day. And everybody’s beautiful in their own way. Under God’s Heaven, the world’s gonna find the way.

There is none so blind as he who will not see. We must not close our minds, we must let our thoughts be free. For every hour that passes by, we know the world gets a little bit older, it’s time to realize that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.
Ray Stevens 1939

To love is the great amulet that makes this world a garden.
Robert Louis Stevenson 1850 – 1894

The Redwoods
Here, sown by the Creator’s hand
In serried ranks, the Redwoods stand
No other clime is honoured so
No other lands their glory know

The greatest of Earth’s living forms
Tall conquerors that laugh at storms
Their challenge still unanswered rings
Through fifty centuries of kings

The nations that with them were young
Rich empires, with their forts far-flung
Lie buried now – their splendor gone
But these proud monarchs still live on

So shall they live, when ends our day
When our crude citadels decay
For brief the years allotted man
But infinite perennials’ span

This is their temple, vaulted high
And here we pause with reverent eye
With silent tongue and awe-struck Soul
For here we sense life’s proper goal

To be like these, straight, true and fine
To make our world, like theirs, a shrine
Sink down, oh, traveller, on your knees
God stands before you in these trees

Joseph B. Strauss 1870 – 1938

Nature is our teacher. She unfolds her treasures to our search, unseals our eyes, illumes our minds, and purifies our hearts; an influence breathes from all the sights and sounds of her existence.

Just remain like the sky and let thought-clouds come and go.
Annamalai Swami

Rabindranath Tagore 1861 – 1941

How can there be too many children? That is like saying there are too many flowers.
Mother Teresa 1910 – 1997

We need to find God, and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence. See the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch Souls.
Mother Teresa 1910 – 1997

If a little flower could speak, it seems to me that it would tell us quite simply all that God has done for it, without hiding any of its gifts.

The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent, nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.
St Theresa 1873 – 1897

There is no velvet so soft as a mother’s lap, no rose as lovely as her smile, no path so flowery as that imprinted with her footsteps.
Archibald Thompson

A single gentle rain makes the grass many shades greener. So our prospects brighten on the influx of better thoughts. We should be blessed if we lived in the present always, and took advantage of every accident that befell us, like the grass which confesses the influence of the slightest dew that falls on it; and did not spend our time in atoning for the neglect of past opportunities, which we call doing our duty. We loiter in winter while it is already spring.
Henry David Thoreau 1817 – 1862

Henry David Thoreau 1817 – 1862

Henry David Thoreau 1817 – 1862
We need the tonic of wildness.. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.
Henry David Thoreau 1817 – 1862

And He will walk with me

Rachel Wolchin

The old Indian teaching was that it is wrong to tear loose from its place on the Earth anything that may be growing there. It may be cut off, but it should not be uprooted. The trees and the grass have spirits. Whenever one of such growth may be destroyed by some good Indian, his act is done in sadness and with a prayer for forgiveness because of his necessities.
Wooden Leg 1858 – 1940

The Earth, and every common sight
To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light
The glory and the freshness of a dream
