When did the nature become a dirty word?

Can you believe it? Can you believe it is Earth Day which is one of my favorite days because I work outside in the garden (weather permitting) and dig in the dirt feeling the soil under my nails and the smell of the earth fill my lungs. That is heaven in my world. 

BUT I want to know when did loving this earth and nature become a dirty word? It was noble to work with your hands and nurture nature. People thought twice before chopping down a 200-year-old tree. Somehow today that is not the situation.

Path to the Birches Oil on Canvas.

At the end of my street someone chopped down all the sell-able lumber trees and the small saplings were piled in huge piles to rot. Later I found out the person who owns the land needed some quick cash and sold the trees for lumber. I don’t know about you but when I see a landscape destroyed and left in chaos I get a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. 

As you drive along the country roads I see too much garbage. While living in Vermont this was something you rarely find. I travel with garbage bags and pick up the recyclable to bring back to my home to discard. So again I ask why is it easier to throw it out the window and not in your garbage can? Is it because being in love with nature not a good thing? 

We hear about climate (whatever) and nobody thinks maybe if we left the trees standing things would be better? Why cut a tree down to build a home when there is a perfectly wonderful home ready to be updated and loved again? 

Yes I do think nature is a beautiful word and maybe we should nurture nature and in turn nature nurtures us. We all have to learn to co-exist. In stead of looking down at the pad of your phone try looking around at the beauty of nature. Enjoy! Revel in nature’s wonderment.

Moss greens warm browns and white birch bark glisten in the sunlight as you stand looking at a road traveled less.

I would take this path each day with the boys my Standard Poodles on our daily hikes through my property, a peacefulness serene place to walk. While you gaze at the birches you can almost smell the sweet scent of the ferns drifting by on the warm breeze.

Quotes

All you ever need is a vibration of Well-being.

As your world or your government, or individuals within your government, make decisions about what is better for you, and as they try to protect you from every possible potential experience, your lives become rather cumbersome, don’t they? All you ever need is a vibration of Well-being.

Is Source vengeful or understanding?

Source never wields vengeance or offers punishment, for Source understands you are valuable; you are worthy; you are blessed. Source understands that you never get it done and you cannot get it wrong, and that even when you stand in a place that currently feels wrong, ultimately you will return to what feels right. You can return now to what feels right with an adjustment of your thought process and an adjustment of your vibration and a changing of your point of attraction and a finally letting in of the Well-Being that is flowing to you always.

—Abraham

I have never believed that God/Creator/Source is vengeful. When you are you become judgmental distrustful and un-loving. This never feels right. Why could anyone ever trust life? This is just my humble vibration of Well-Being, what is yours?

This is how my vibration looks to me when I connect to Source. Image from favim.com

Live in the fire of your dreams manifestation.

“This life has an infinite number of potentials for you; we live in a made to order Universe. Whatever you believe is possible for you and take consistent action upon is what becomes your reality. If you keep telling yourself that your dream isn’t possible, you will come to find that you are absolutely right.

But my friend, if you draw a line in the sand and tell the Universe that your dreams are a reality RIGHT NOW, and take action as if that were the case, you will come to find that you are absolutely right. The question is how long can you live in the fire of your dreams manifestation?

The price you have to pay to live your dream is facing your deepest darkest fear and the reward you receive from this courageous act is the realization that your fear was an illusion and that your dreams were always real.

So I ask you, my friend, are you willing to go there? Are you willing to sit in fire and sacrifice the comfort of your known world for the potential of something amazing, new and unknown? Don’t you want to find out what’s on the other side of your fear?

Living in fear is so last season, if you want to be happy and really live your dream you have to take a stand and just put yourself out there. You might fail, yes indeed – but, you might, you just might succeed too! Don’t you want to find out? Either way your life will never be the same… Can you handle it?”

– Jackson Kiddard

If you are not where you dream lives within you need to start living in the fire of your dreams manifestation.

Dreams are so much more than just thought. Dreams come from the fire burning within filled with feeling belief and courage. I know every single living being has a dream and it is real and inside you. Fan the embers and let the flame take you to the other side of doubt and fear.

Are you not worth the effort? Live your dream now this minute and watch as you are guided through the door. Do not stop just because it got hard. Keep going because it did.

Do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live

“Don’t listen to those who say ‘you’re taking too big a chance.’ Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today. Most important, don’t listen when the little voice of fear inside you rears its ugly head and says ‘they’re all smarter than you out there. They’re more talented, they’re taller, blonder, prettier, luckier, and they have connections.” I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts—and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live—the chances are you’ll be a person worthy of your own respects.”

Neil Simon

Nature Art woodland landscape rendering of autumn leaves is a watercolor original paintings on paper by Laurie Rohner.

A watercolor painting of bright maple leaves in orange and reds takes me to a memory of an autumn day in Vermont. I was blessed with a beautiful view and could sit in a comfy chair one day and take in the vibrant energy of nature. Enjoying it with the best person I knew was even better. Nature seemed to have a lot to say that day. Not to stop and listen would have been an offensive move on my part.  I was given so much that day that now years later I still feel the energy of that miraculous day.
