[Quote No.58159] Need Area: Property > Garden/Nature
"The Lakota loved the earth and all things of the earth, the attachment growing with age. The old people came literally to love the soil and they sat or reclined on the ground with a feeling of being close to a mothering power. It was good for the skin to touch the earth and the old people liked to remove their moccasins and walk with bare feet on the sacred earth. . . . That is why the old Indian still sits upon the earth instead of propping himself up and away from its life-giving forces. For him, to sit or lie upon the ground is to be able to think more deeply and to feel more keenly; he can see more clearly into the mysteries of life and come closer in kinship to other lives about him . . ." - Standing Bear

[Quote No.58179] Need Area: Property > Garden/Nature
"[Poem:-]

Who walks beside a rosebud,
And does not sense its bloom,
Its lovely form and color,
Its delicate perfume;

Who walks beneath the Heavens,
And does not see the sky,
The sunrise and the sunset,
The tints that glow and die;

Who treads a rural pathway,
And never hears a bird,
Nor notes the trembling grasses,
A passing breeze has stirred;

Who dwells among his fellows,
And sees them pass his door,
Nor hear their heartbeats -
Is pitifully poor.

[Quote No.60779] Need Area: Property > Garden/Nature
"'Trees Please': The Japanese practice of 'forest bathing' is scientifically proven to improve your health: The tonic of the wilderness was Henry David Thoreau's classic prescription for civilization and its discontents, offered in the 1854 essay 'Walden: Or, Life in the Woods'. Now there's scientific evidence supporting eco-therapy. The Japanese practice of forest bathing is proven to lower heart rate and blood pressure, reduce stress hormone production, boost the immune system, and improve overall feelings of wellbeing. Forest bathing - basically just being in the presence of trees - became part of a national public health program in Japan in 1982 when the forestry ministry coined the phrase shinrin-yoku and promoted topiary as therapy. ... From 2004 to 2012, Japanese officials spent about $4 million dollars studying the physiological and psychological effects of forest bathing, designating 48 therapy trails based on the results. Qing Li, a professor at Nippon Medical School in Tokyo, measured the activity of human natural killer (NK) cells in the immune system before and after exposure to the woods. These cells provide rapid responses to viral-infected cells and respond to tumor formation, and are associated with immune system health and cancer prevention. In a 2009 study Li's subjects showed significant increases in NK cell activity in the week after a forest visit, and positive effects lasted a month following each weekend in the woods. This is due to various essential oils, generally called phytoncide, found in wood, plants, and some fruit and vegetables, which trees emit to protect themselves from germs and insects. Forest air doesn't just feel fresher and better—inhaling phytoncide seems to actually improve immune system function. Experiments on forest bathing conducted by the Center for Environment, Health and Field Sciences in Japan's Chiba University measured its physiological effects on 280 subjects in their early 20s. The team measured the subjects' salivary cortisol (which increases with stress), blood pressure, pulse rate, and heart rate variability during a day in the city and compared those to the same biometrics taken during a day with a 30-minute forest visit. 'Forest environments promote lower concentrations of cortisol, lower pulse rate, lower blood pressure, greater parasympathetic nerve activity, and lower sympathetic nerve activity than do city environments,' the study concluded. In other words, being in nature made subjects, physiologically, less amped. The parasympathetic nerve system controls the body's rest-and-digest system while the sympathetic nerve system governs fight-or-flight responses. Subjects were more rested and less inclined to stress after a forest bath. Trees soothe the spirit too. A study on forest bathing's psychological effects surveyed 498 healthy volunteers, twice in a forest and twice in control environments. The subjects showed significantly reduced hostility and depression scores, coupled with increased liveliness, after exposure to trees. 'Accordingly,' the researchers wrote, 'forest environments can be viewed as therapeutic landscapes.' ... City dwellers can benefit from the effects of trees with just a visit to the park. Brief exposure to greenery in urban environments can relieve stress levels, and experts have recommended 'doses of nature' as part of treatment of attention disorders in children. What all of this evidence suggests is we don't seem to need a lot of exposure to gain from nature - but regular contact appears to improve our immune system function and our wellbeing. ... " - Ephrat Livni

[Quote No.60780] Need Area: Property > Garden/Nature
"'The Power of Nature: Ecotherapy and Awakening: - Why is contact with nature so good for us?' In recent years, researchers have become aware of a powerful new kind of therapy, which is just as effective against depression as traditional psychotherapy or medication. And the amazing thing is that you don't have to pay for this therapy. It's free, and completely accessible to anyone at anytime. It's not even a new therapy either – in fact, it's even older than the human race. This is ecotherapy – contact with nature. A few years ago researchers at the University of Essex in 2007 found that, of a group of people suffering from depression, 90 percent felt a higher level of self-esteem after a walk through a country park, and almost three-quarters felt less depressed. Another survey by the same research team found that 94% of people with mental illnesses believed that contact with nature put them in a more positive mood. Since then, in the UK contact with nature has been increasingly used as a therapy by mental health professionals. But as well as helping us to heal our minds, contact with nature can transform us. For several years, I have done research into what I call 'awakening experiences' – moments when our vision of our surroundings becomes more intense (so that they become more beautiful and meaningful than normal), and we feel a sense of connectedness to them, and towards other people. The world may somehow seem harmonious and meaningful, as a strong feeling of well-being fills us. (These are similar to Abraham Maslow's 'peak experiences' – see my book 'Waking From Sleep' for a fuller discussion.) And my research consistently shows that contact with nature is one of the most frequent triggers of these experiences – in fact, around 20 percent of them. This is certainly true for me. I have what you could call 'low intensity awakening experiences' very frequently when I'm amongst nature. If I go walking in the countryside on my own (it doesn't happen so often with other people) there usually comes a point when a feeling of well-being begins to well up inside me, and when the trees and the fields and the sky around me seem to be more alive and beautiful, and to be shining with a new radiance. The clouds above me seem to be moving with a dramatic beauty, and I have a sense that 'all is well.' Of course, countless poets have written of the states of awe and ecstasy they've experienced whilst alone with nature too. This is what William Wordsworth's poetry is most famous for: his sense that nature is pervaded with what he called 'a motion and a spirit which rolls through all thinking things, and all objects of thought.' Other poets like Walt Whitman, Emerson, William Blake and W.B. Yeats have also left us many descriptions of the sense of meaning and harmony and inner joy they experienced while contemplating natural scenes. Why does nature have this effect on us? It's not surprising that nature has a therapeutic effect when you consider that the human race – and all our evolutionary forebears – have been closely bonded with it for all our existence. It's only in recent times that many of us have been confined to man-made environments. For us, contact with green spaces is therefore like going back home, and fills us with the same sense of safety and belonging. We crave nature in the same way that a child needs a mother, and derive the same feeling of comfort from it. But the main reason why nature can heal and transform us, I believe, is because of its calming and mind-quietening effect. In nature, our minds process a lot less information than normal, and they don't wear themselves out by concentrating. And most importantly, the beauty and majesty of nature acts a little like a mantra in meditation, slowing down the normal 'thought-chatter' which runs chaotically through our minds. As a result, an inner stillness and energy fills us, generating a glow of being and intensifying our perceptions. ... So the next time you feel depressed or frustrated, don't choose retail therapy or mood-altering medication – put on your walking boots and try ecotherapy instead. You may not just get a boost of well-being, but an awakening experience as well." - Steve Taylor

[Quote No.62411] Need Area: Property > Garden/Nature
"[The difference between seeing and observing:] Let two persons go out for a walk; the one a good sketcher [keen observer], the other having no taste of the kind. Let them go down a green lane. There will be a great difference in the scene as perceived by the two individuals. The one will see a lane and trees; he will perceive the trees to be green, though he will think nothing about it; he will see that the sun shines, and that it has a cheerful effect, but that the trees make the lane shady and cool; and he will see an old woman in a red cloak; — et voilà tout! But what will the sketcher [keen observer] see? His eye is accustomed to search into the cause of beauty, and penetrate the minutest parts of loveliness. He looks up, and observes how the showery and subdivided sunshine comes sprinkled down among the gleaming leaves overhead, till the air is filled with the emerald light, and the motes dance in the green, glittering lines that shoot down upon the thicker masses of clustered foliage that stand out so bright and beautiful from the dark, retiring shadows of the inner tree, where the white light again comes flashing in from behind, like showers of stars; and here and there a bough is seen emerging from the veil of leaves, of a hundred varied colours, where the old and gnarled wood is covered with the brightness, — the jewel brightness of the emerald moss, or the variegated and fantastic lichens, white and blue, purple and red, all mellowed and mingled into a garment of beauty from the old withered branch. Then come the cavernous trunks, and the twisted roots that grasp with their snake-like coils at the steep bank, whose turfy slope is inlaid with flowers of a thousand dyes, each with his diadem of dew: and down like a visiting angel, looks one ray of golden light, and passes over the glittering turf — kiss, — kiss, — kissing every blossom, until the laughing flowers have lighted up the lips of the grass with one bright and beautiful smile, that is seen far, far away among the shadows of the old trees, like a gleam of summer lightening along the darkness of an evening cloud. Is not this worth seeing? Yet if you are not a sketcher [keen observer] you will pass along the green lane, and when you come home again, have nothing to say or to think about it, but that you went down such and such a lane. ... From the most insignificant circumstance, — from a bird on a railing, a wooden bridge over a stream, a broken branch, a child in a pinafore, or a waggoner in a frock, does the artist [keen observer] derive amusement, improvement, and speculation. In everything it is the same; where a common eye sees only a white cloud, the artist [keen observer] observes the exquisite gradations of light and shade, the loveliness of the mingled colours — red, purple, grey, golden, and white; the graceful roundings of form, the shadowy softness of the melted outline, the brightness without lustre, the transparency without faintness, and the beautiful mildness of the deep heaven that looks out among the snowy cloud with its soft blue eyes; — in fact, the enjoyment of the sketcher [keen observer] from the contemplation of nature is a thing which to another is almost incomprehensible. If a person who had no taste for drawing [keen observation] were at once to be endowed with both the taste and power, he would feel, on looking out upon nature, almost like a blind man who had just received his sight." - John Ruskin
(1819 - 1900), great Victorian art critic, philosopher and philanthropist.

"The Cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us - there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries." - Carl Sagan
