There is a greater sense of well-being and achievement when you invest your time tending to the needs of Nature. You may ask how this is possible. The answer is quite simple. You need not be qualified for this job, or need to have any technical knowledge and skills. What you do need is a heartful of love and compassion for Nature, and the rest is easy.
Gardening and growing pretty flowers and plants is one such hobby that eases all tensions in your life. Just to watch them bloom and flourish under your tender care is gratification in itself. The Love that you invest is Nature is always reciprocated; it is never wasted. Nature knows how to give as it takes, unlike man who takes more than he can give. Man chooses conveniently to ignore the fact that he co-exists with Nature, and that he depends upon Nature for his survival.
Working with Nature is not a wasted effort. There is a greater joy in co-creating with Nature. It is very spiritualistic, and keeps you in tune with the higher cosmic energies. However, your work with Nature is not just limited at the physical level. Your thoughts play a major role as well in tending to Nature's well-being. Send out positive thoughts of love and peace to the trees and plants whenever you happen to pass by them. It does not matter by what mode you travel - whether on foot, by car or any other vehicle.
Distance is no barrier to thoughts. Nature can read your thoughts loud and clear. Therefore, send out thoughts of appreciation, love and gratitude to all Nature. Happy thoughts help Nature to flourish with greater abundance. That is why it is a common practice to talk to plants and flowers. Treat them with love and see how they will respond to you. Intend God's Light of love, healing and protection around them. No materialistic object, no matter how priceless by worldly standards, can compare to the beauty that Nature radiates in all its purity and innocence. It is the beauty that touches your soul and gives you a sense of deep inner peace.
Your bond with Nature is eternal, and only you can strengthen it by giving a part of yourself to Her. While materialistic wealth is the source of all your worries and tensions, Nature's wealth is the Source of health and rejuvenation, peace and happiness. Nature is your Mother, and one can never tire of Mother's divine Love.
