Loving Nature

To us, a person cannot fully love God unless he or she also loves God's creation:

whether it's expressed in the form of Mary's painting at the top of the page, or in Carol Vito's photo of this winter wonderland,

or through the gentle beauty of this mother and child drinking water,

or the beauty of this spotted touch-me-not,

or through this cat and rat who prove that Isaiah's prophecy of a peaceable kingdom (11:6-9) is a reality,

or through this peaceful encounter with a mouse in a tree.

Okay I admit it. Religion is good.

God never stopped communicating with man and nature once the Koran and Bible were written! No he keeps talking... but most religious people are deaf to His words.

How does he talk to us? Plato made it clear.

"The gods created certain kinds of beings to replenish our bodies... they are the trees and the plants and the seeds."

--PLATO (circa 428-347 B.C.) Greek philosopher.

In some organic gardens one can still see the Garden of Eden, which still exists beneath the rubble of this warlike civilisation.

My own garden is evidence. The Garden of Eden replicated in microcosm.

How have I achieved this? Through the love of nature.

Yes, God speaks to us from His Creations.

He gave us nature, so we could have consciousness and be realised, that all living nature is God's living flesh.

When humanity realises that all nature is God, and treats every genetic sequence as sacred, we will know the true God...

Loving Nature is the first step to realisation. The Bible and Koran are old guides to a truth beneath our feet. That all life is sacred and God treats all nature the same, with love, as can be seen when viewing the birth of any creature.

Love should be the glue of existence, binding us all together.

In 2003, we are surrounded by a deep sickness in our fellows. Man's power has corrupted him. His dominance over Nature causes him to live in poverty and war. Without God's warmth of wholeness.

Without the love of nature we are a people cut of from God's being. Apart. Alone.

Peace and Love is the face of Nature. With high intakes of adrenaline and stolen flesh Man is too sick to recognise it. Paranoia rules Earth's domain.

Take time to examine creation. All of it sacred and as meaningful as the most holy of books.
