12 Reflections on Paintings for Our Common Home – Painting #10 “Flowering with Nature”, and Reflection #10 “Flowering with Nature”.


Flowering with Nature

Your deepest roots are in Nature,

remain irrevocably linked with the rest of creation.

By turning into nature you can access your true self

and savour its vital contentment.

Nature is a source of beauty, which can give us a happiness

That is inherently spiritual.

Spending time in nature brings healing and energy,

Nature teaches us to honour the stillness,

adopt acceptance and welcome renewal.
