Don't give up. It's not over.  The universe is balanced. Every set-back bears with it the seeds of a come-back.

Some people FEEL the rain...   others just get wet.


Suzanne Ward

Matthew Ward-Suzanne Ward
Knowing that you and God and every other of God’s creations are inseparable is love. Knowing that Earth is a sentient, conscious life herself and respecting all of her life forms is love. Realizing that no one can know others at Soul level and therefore does not judge them, but rather does not condone an action seen as injurious, is love.


Listening to one’s Godself is love. Living the kind of life that engenders loving self is love. Feeling joy yourself when you see it in others is love. Doing something that brings joy to another is love. Forgiveness of self and others is love. Sharing your resources with full heart is love. Doing good deeds without attaching expectations is love. Feeling peace of heart and mind is love. The quiet thrill of seeing a sunset or hearing a songbird is love, and a smile is one of the simplest and most radiating expressions of love.

May the stars carry your sadness away.
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty.

And above all, may silence make you strong.

Treat the Earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
It was loaned to you by your children.

We borrow it from our children.


Walk tall as the trees.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Native American Chinook
Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the Earth, our planet home, with its beautiful depths and soaring heights, its vitality and abundance of life, and together we ask that it… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the mountains, the Cascades and the Olympics, the high green valleys and meadows filled with wild flowers, the snows that never melt, the summits of intense silence, and we ask that they… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the waters that rim the earth, horizon to horizon, that flow in our rivers and streams, that fall upon our gardens and fields and we ask that they… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the land which grows our food, the nurturing soil, the fertile fields, the abundant gardens and orchards, and we ask that they… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the forests, the great trees reaching strongly to the sky and the earth in their roots and the heavens in their branches, the fir and the pine and the cedar, and we ask them to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the creatures of the fields and forests and the seas, our brothers and sisters the wolves and deer, the eagle and dove, the great whales and dolphin, the beautiful Orca and salmon who share our Northwest home, and we ask them to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon all those who have lived on this earth, our ancestors and our friends, who dreamed the best for our future generations, and upon whose lives our lives our built, and with thanksgiving, we call upon them to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

And lastly, we call upon all that we hold most sacred, the presence and power of the Great Spirit of love and truth which flows through all the Universe, to be with us to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We return thanks to our Mother, the Earth, which sustains us. We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water. We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases. We return thanks to the moon and stars, which have given us their light when the sun was gone. We return thanks to the sun, that has looked upon the Earth with a beneficent eye. Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit, in whom is embodied all goodness, and who directs all things for the good of her children.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Native American - Ute



Earth teach me quiet… as the grasses are still with new light.
Earth teach me suffering… as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility… as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring… as mothers nurture their young.
Earth teach me courage… as the tree that stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation… as the ant that crawls on the ground
Earth teach me freedom… as the eagle that soars in the sky
Earth teach me acceptance… as the leaves that die each fall
Earth teach me renewal… as the seed that rises in the spring
Earth teach me to forget myself… as melted snow forgets its life
Earth teach me to remember kindness… as dry fields weep with rain

Chief Nikinapi  ? - c.1750
Never has the Earth been so lovely nor the sun so bright, as today.


David Nova

David Nova  


Consider A Tree
The Symbol of Life
One living totality of consciousness
The Oneness of being to which we all belong
Always connected, never separate or apart
The trunk as our Creator, the Source of all Life
The divine dividing branches, our soul family, our connection to source
Each individual twig, a unique soul, our higher selves
The roots below ground, invisible helpers, our guides on the other side
A vital support system providing nourishment and growth
And the leaves that bloom each spring, our human incarnations
Fragile and green, beautiful to behold, but short lived
That shed every autumn, only to be reborn anew every spring
Yet it is our destiny, our mission, our greatest purpose
As collective branches on the Tree of Life
To evolve, to be transformed, and Ascend
To become… Evergreen
Shining with an inner light

Nature Quotes:  O   



Cynthia Occelli

Cynthia Occelli
For a seed to achieve its greatest expression it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. to someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.


Ohiyesa

Ohiyesa  1858 - 1939
aka Charles Alexander Eastman 
Whenever, in the course of the daily hunt, the hunter comes upon a scene that is strikingly beautiful, or sublime - a black thundercloud with the rainbow’s glowing arch above the mountain, a white waterfall in the heart of a green gorge, a vast prairie tinged with the blood-red of the sunset - he pauses for an instant in the attitude of worship.


Georgia O'Keeffe

Georgia O'Keeffe  1887 - 1986
Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small it takes time, and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.


When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for that moment.


Okute

Okute aka Shooter
All living creatures and all plants derive their life from the sun. if it were not for the sun, there would be darkness and nothing would grow - the earth would be without life. Yet the sun must have the help of the earth. If the sun alone were to act upon animals and plants, the heat would be so great and they would die, but there are clouds that bring rain, and the action of the sun and earth together supplies the moisture that is needed for life. The roots of a plant go down, and the deeper they go the more moisture they find. This is according to the laws of nature and is one of the evidences of the wisdom of Wakan Tanka. 


From my boyhood I have observed leaves, trees, and grass, and I have never found two alike. They may have a general likeness, but on examination I have found that they differ slightly. It is the same with animals… it is the same with human beings, there is some place which is best adapted to each… 


Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver  1935
Said the river: imagine everything you can imagine.. And then keep on going.


Snow was falling, so much like stars
Filling the dark trees
That one could easily imagine
Its reason for being was nothing more
Than prettiness


Ovid

Ovid  43BC - 17AD
Take rest... a field that has rested gives a beautiful crop.

George Peele

George Peele  1556 - 1596



Creatres, as numerous as they be
Are subject to His care
There’s not a place where we can flee
But God is present there
Lord how Thy wonders are displayed
Where’er I turn mine eye
If I survey the ground I tread
Or gaze upon the sky

Don’t invite people to your garden who trample on your flowers.


It only takes one seed to be the mother to hundreds of flowers. Sow seeds of Love, Kindness, Joy and Gratitude for a heart full of blooms that never wither.

This world is indeed a living being endowed with a Soul and intelligence... a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.

We’re like a gardener with a hose and our attention is water - we can water flowers or we can water weeds.


Osho Rajneesh

Osho Rajneesh  1931 - 1990
If you love a flower, don’t pick it up because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So, if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession, love is about appreciation.


If you start listening to the body, listening to nature, listening to your inner being, you will be more and more happy. Become a good Listener to nature.


Love yourself. You are needed as much as the trees, as the flowers, as the birds, as the sun, as the moon, as the stars. You have to be here and you have a right to be the way you are.

Magic exists.  Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.

Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to the people.


Chief John Ross

We, the great mass of the people, think only of the love we have for our land, for we do love the land where we were brought up.


Christina Rossetti

One day in the country is worth a month in town.


Where innocent bright-eyes daisies are
With blades of grass between,
Each daisy stands up like a star
Out of a sky of green.


Jalal Uddin Rumi

Jalal Uddin Rumi  1207 - 1273
Always search for your innermost nature in those you are with, as rose oil imbibes from roses.


If you find a trusted friend, tell him the secrets of your Soul. If you see a rose, sing from your heart, like a nightingale.


In the garden...  I see only your face.
From trees and blossoms...  I inhale only your fragrance.


Let yourself be loved, O Beloved, in the One. And from this One move out into the world, carrying within you the great potent energies of life to green your world, to create planets, suns, stars, stones, waves, oceans, to create new forms of life and expression - whether friendship, a feeling or a new form of vocation.


Love is a river...   drink from it.

Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty, if only we have the eyes to see them.

Listen With Your Heart

I love this video about how trees are record keepers and that we can communicate with them. The video is made by Oribel, using the words from the book 'Tree Talk - Messages From The Earth's Trees' by Dianne Robbins, the music is Forest Gump Suite. It is a beautiful combination of photographs, music and words about one of my favourite things... Trees.
I have also added a longer version on my Feel Good Videos page, where you will also find the words for that video which are mostly the same as this one.
