Blessings from Mother Nature!!!

the-truth-is-in-nature-paul-cezanne

As a child, I would often skip on the dusty paths, sit under my favorite tree and find great delight in the cooing of doves. Though a city bred child, I was always charmed by the countryside.

The breeze seemed so welcoming, the rain so fulfilling and running under the dripping trees, an adventure!

Following the ducks till they jumped into the pond to defeat our ventures of catching them was our pet past time! The simple joys that nature presented could be felt even at that tender age.

Mother Nature is more than just a mother! She makes us perceptive, patient and perseverant. The lessons we learn in her lap are more profound than modern research results.

“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.” ― John Lubbock

Nature inspires us to co-exist peacefully. It provides for all the organisms yet it has linked them in an amazing way. The life of seeds and animals and human beings intermingles in such a way that they depend on each other yet can thrive on their own.

CHANGE AND ADAPT

Seasons change, flowers bloom, spread their glory for a while and wither, trees shed their leaves, rivers change their course, the law of nature is…accept change and flow with the current. The setting sun leaves a message of hope for us…a new dawn.

CONTENTMENT AND SERENITY

The soothing effect of winter landscape, the healing touch of lush green meadows, the harmony of sunshine and clouds, playing hide and seek, the mesmerizing effect of slow falling rain are the natural lessons we learn from nature.

SPREAD HAPPINESS

Have you ever looked at the flowers, tossing their heads as if beckoning us to their side to share the smiles, the radiance and the colors they can lend to our gloomy days? We just need a discerning eye to pick up that message.

BE PATIENT

Have you noticed the pace of nature? The slow sprouting seeds, blooming of trees, the forming of fruits, the gentle entry of fall…all give us a lesson that if we wait patiently, all works well.

SOFT MUSIC

The first sounds of music come from Mother Nature… the whispering pines, the rustling of leaves, the waters gushing down the cascading streams, the gurgling waterfalls and myriad other sounds define real music. “The earth has music for those who listen.” ― George Santayana

SOOTHING TOUCH

The snow covered peaks, the winter sunshine, the first drops of rain, the dewdrops on the grass, the star studded sky, the moonlight streaming through the trees…they release you from all the anxieties and dilemmas. They are nature’s antidotes to ease our pain.

“There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ― Rachel Carson

  1. I love nature , I love fall colors,as there are different shades to see . I enjoy watching a rainbow,sunshine, sunset but one thing I have noticed is, if we are happy then nature is an inspiration in many ways like we love to hear birds chirping in backyard and even rustling of leaves seems like soft music but sometimes I wonder if we are not in good mood why everything changes that very same patch of green trees seems like a dark and deep forest and we feel how we are going to cross it. For what and why we are standing in front of it. I know nature remains the same, our views change we react differently in different situations. Still I wanted to share this just to know is it only me who feels this or some other people will agree on this.

    1. Hi Daljeet…you are right, different people react to beauties around us in their own way, depending on their moods but for me, nature is a great mood uplifter. Just a look at the snow covered peaks is enough to melt all the worries… I go to her lap and don’t need to think, positive thoughts start flowing spontaneously. My poetry is many times inspired by mother nature.

      Thanks for adding your thoughts to this post, they are greatly valued.

  2. Hi Balroop,

    I love Mother Nature and like you I grew up in the city. Okay, it was a very small town actually but we were just 30 miles outside of the 4th largest city in the US.

    My grandparents lived in the country though and although there were no beautiful mountains in the background or rivers or streams near by, the beauty of the sun setting, the fireflies out at night or the howling of the animals was something I always enjoyed. We use to sit on the front porch and just enjoy the peacefulness of it all. So quite at times and just so relaxing.

    Thanks for taking me back to those times Balroop.

  3. Hi Adrienne, I am so glad you could travel down the memory lane with me. Nature has always fascinated me, just a pond or a puddle was enough to excite my imagination. The main attraction of my holidays was always a visit to a hill station, where our past time was mostly a walk in the forest uphill or downhill, looking at the snow covered peaks and hearing the melodious sounds of nature.

    I guess this fascination is inborn…even now I spend most of my free time in my backyard, looking at the antics of squirrels and infinite bounties of nature.

    Thanks for adding your love to those unforgettable moments of life!
