One can only come to love nature by being in it. To stare in awe at its beauty and to coexist in its flow, bathes and nourishes the soul. Sadly enough, the more of nature that we remove, build upon, transfigure, and pollute, the less likely one can come to love it.

Nature is inseparable from ourselves, and anything that we do to it we are ultimately doing to our bodies. We are creating a world of people that are so separate from nature that they have yet to know their true selves.

While I could come up with many reasons why we are blindly destroying our ability to coexist with nature, unless we consciously recognize what we are doing to our planet and make changes, the chance to live a good healthy life in a beautiful natural environment will soon become extinct for rich and poor alike.

It is however still very important to see the beauty in nature and spend some time clearing your mind within its most precious places, albeit those places are sometimes polluted. We can actually honor our creator in this way, by appreciated what has been given to us. Through our willingness to preserve and protect, to take part in and grow, to build up and not destroy, we can find peace of mind, vitality in our health, and contentment in our hearts.

“God is everywhere, in everything. When you see something beautiful – a sunset, a mountain, a stream – these are reminders of God’s presence, revealing his beauty.” ~ From “Let There Be Love,” Cardinal Basil Hume
