Through nature you’ll transform, awaken and heal, and even get a boost in creativity, health and quality of life.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis
“Love all God’s creation, the whole of it and every grain of sand.  Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light!  Love the animals, love the plants, love everything.  If you love everything you will perceive the divine mystery in things.  And once you have perceived it you will begin to comprehend it ceaselessly, more and more every day.  And you will at last come to love the whole world with an abiding universal love.  Love the animals:  God has given them the rudiments of thought and untroubled joy.  Do not therefore, trouble it, do not torture them, do not deprive them of their joy, do not go against God’s intent.  St. Paul preached the identity of the Unknown God, and to take up his example.
