For the Love of Trees ....

“Let the beauty you love be what you do. There are a

thousand ways to kneel and kiss the Earth.” – Rumi

Do things from Love, not for Love.

28,000 Trees are cut down per day to make  Toilet Paper. This is why I make my own personal pads (tho I still use TP for more serious business ;)) Personal pads can be anything from sewn squares to just using old cotton socks or cut up sections of old T-shirts. Be creative.

Richrd Nelson

"The forest is not merely an expression or representation of sacredness, nor a place to invoke the sacred; the forest is sacredness itself.  Nature is not merely created by God, nature is God.  Whoever moves within the forest can partake directly of sacredness, experience sacredness with his entire body, breath sacredness and contain it within himself, drink the sacred water as a living communion, bury his feet in sacredness, open his eyes and witness the burning beauty of sacredness."

William Blake ~

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others

only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all

ridicule and deformity … and some scarce see nature at all. But to

the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”

"The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness." ~ John Muir
John Fowles    "In some mysterious way woods have never seemed to me to be static things.  In physical terms, I move through them; yet in metaphysical ones, they seem to move through me."    

Nikita Gill ~ You Have Become a Forest

One day when you wake up, you will find that you have become a forest. You have grown roots and found strength in them that no one thought you had. You have become stronger and more beautiful, full of life giving qualities. You have learned to take all the negativity around you and turn it into oxygen for easy breathing. A host of wild creatures live inside you and you call them stories. A variety of beautiful birds rest inside your mind and you call them memories. You have become an incredible self sustaining thing of epic proportions. And you should be so proud of yourself, of how far you have come from the seeds of who you used to be.

"It is not so much for its beauty that

the forest makes a claim upon men's

hearts, as for that subtle something,

that quality of air that emanation

from old trees, that so wonderfully

changes and renews a weary spirit."

-   Robert Louis Stevenson 

"The cultivation of trees is the cultivation of the

good, the beautiful and the ennobling in man." 

-   J. Sterling Morton 

The creation of a thousand forests is in one Acorn. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
