Beauty – Nature

Nature, as the widest sense, is actually the real physical, natural world or universe. “Nurture” could be used as a synonym for “feel” because it often means to nurture one’s own feelings. “Nurture” can refer both to human beings and to all living things.

Nature, as the widest sense, can also be understood in terms of self. When we talk of oneself, it means our personal being or state of being. In this sense, the concept of nature is related to that of personal growth. The study of nature can thus be seen as a field of study that aims at developing one’s personal growth or individuality.

Nature has several names. Among these are fecundity, holiness, silence, beauty, splendor, radiance, loveliness, and purity. Nature is thus not only the object of desire but also the condition of true happiness and joy. When we speak of beauty, it refers to a particular quality of the physical form or structure. Beauty in this sense is not subjective, since it has been determined scientifically.

According to the Christian religion, nature is God-fashioned. It therefore follows that man’s splendor represents God’s glory. Nature thus provides a standard of values for which there can be no measured comparison.

Among the other major definitions of nature, one that has received much prominence is that of the Romanticists. Romanticism is a movement, which began in the nineteenth century, in search for a humanity that was pure and unadulterated by any kind of imposed morality. According to the Romanticists, nature is everything that exists between the two extremes of reality – idealism and realism. Thus, nature includes everything that we experience as beauty, such as art, music, literature, drama, nature, and even tragedy.

In its most basic sense, however, nature signifies the entire range of nature – the totality comprised by all the elements that exist simultaneously and whose combined presence is bound to give rise to a single definition of beauty. Thus, beauty encompasses all the aspects of nature, human and non-human, such as the sky, ocean, fire, water, earth, mountains, trees, rocks, plants, soil, and the entire animal kingdom. The Romanticists were the first to use the term beauty extensively in their aesthetic theories. They also developed a number of other concepts, such as the idea of an aesthetic desire, that desire itself being the definition of beauty, and so, desire and beauty being identical. Still others deny the essential identity of desire and beauty, while others attempt to reconcile the desire and beauty.…

Your Calling to the Wild

Nature is the totality of all that exists, not only in the physical world but also in the spiritual world. It contains invisible and visible objects and forces that manifest themselves on both the visible and invisible planes. In the physical world, we see plants, animals, and human beings, while in the spiritual world, we see angels, ghosts, and God. Everything has a connection to nature. And, everything has a part in the larger scheme of things that is expressed in nature.

When you think of nature, what do you think of? Are you picturing long stretches of brown hills covered with wildflowers, rivers bursting forth with water, and the sun setting over the horizon? If so, you are viewing a part of nature. On the other hand, are you picturing a desert full of rugged rocks, with only dry trees on either side and the occasional wind blowing hard enough to blow dust away from your face? If so, you are seeing a tiny fraction of the vastness of nature.

Even when you are not physically near to nature, there are many ways to become more aware of it. What do you notice when you are out and about? Is there a way that you can meditate or pray without being in nature? Can you imagine what it would be like to see nature up close? Do you try to listen to nature’s call to you?

You have been given a certain amount of “real estate” in your physical life by the earth. You have heard the story of the caveman who carved out the first rock, found a way to live off of it for a couple of million years, and then looked back at his creation and wondered if perhaps someday people would look back and marvel at what he had done? You have a piece of nature inside of you, yet you haven’t used it very much. Why not take the time to enjoy its beauty? The more you see nature, the more it will seem to call to you.

Look up and see the sky and the trees and the mountains and think about the vastness of the universe. Have you ever noticed that everything seems to be connected in some way? Nature is alive and you are part of her. Listen to nature’s sounds and learn to listen to what is going on around you. Look at everything you do and see if there is some connection to nature.

Nature is always changing. As long as you are alive you are experiencing the power of nature. The more you can do with nature, the more powerful it will become for you. It is your calling to follow nature.…

The Importance of Nature

Nature is generally defined as the entire universe in which living things exist. This includes all life and its geological structure, the physical universe, and the interaction among all those that have brought forth the evolution of life on Earth. The study of nature has various aspects. It is used to explain the relationships among living things, their origins, and how they are surviving and thriving in today’s environment. In addition, it also covers the study of how human beings can survive in a more natural way.

Most people think of nature as a physical reality. For instance, many refer to the earth as a “plant” or a “tree.” However, it should be understood that there is much more to this earth than a dead, lifeless planet that is now teeming with life. The study of nature requires one to look beyond the physical realm to explore its deeper secrets.

One example is how plants grow. At its simplest level, it involves the growth of cells – just like human beings. Plants need light and water to grow. If the light and water are missing, plants die.

In the study of nature, we find that its forces work both in and out of the Earth’s surface. For instance, when a hurricane moves inland, its winds carry sand and other debris to the coast, where it helps to build the ocean’s waves. This process is known as wind-loading. Likewise, when light strikes the surface of the Earth, it is absorbed and reflected by the atmosphere, which in turn refracts the light. This is what we call visible light.

On another level, nature creates energy. The ocean’s waves create the ocean’s currents, which drive the global weather patterns. And, plant life uses the sun to create food – photosynthesis. All forms of life, from bacteria to whales, rely on nature to continue their existence and to flourish. Nature, it seems, knows best.

Of course, we need to understand that not everything in the world is perfect. There are problems, such as pollution and habitat destruction, that occur regularly. But, with awareness of the natural world and with a little respect for nature, it seems that we can do much to improve the environment we live in for present and future generations.

One way to do that is to plant a garden. Planting a garden helps create open space. It helps keep pests and insects from taking over or destroying our crops. It also helps keep the soil and plants well-drained, so they will be able to support healthy root growth. Finally, growing your own food allows you to know exactly where your food comes from. No pesticides or fertilizers are used, and no synthetic materials or man-made products are mixed into the soil.

Clearly, we can all benefit from having gardens and planting plants. In fact, it seems like an immense waste not to have gardens. It’s a great investment in the health of not only yourself but also future generations. Consider all this in 2021.…
