Living in Naturalness with Nature

. . . How well can we do that?

How well can we live with Nature
without trying to improve on her?

Do we feel the need to improve on
the natural scenic beauty of nature
in her forests, mountains, oceans, deserts
. . . or even in her rocks, plants, or trees?

Do we feel the need to improve on her
many varied living creatures. . .
ones living in the wilds, in our gardens,
or even in our homes as our own pets?

To enhance the natural beauty given us
in any form of Nature’s creations is a way
of living with the naturalness of nature.

But do we feel a need to recreate
what has already been so marvelously
created by the Master Artist of All?

Why should we desire a ‘make-over’
to make us look exactly like everyone else,
when we each have been given a very
special uniqueness all our own
as the true individuals that we are?

Why the replaced drawn-on eyebrows,
false eyelashes, shadowing of eyes,
multi-coloring of lips and hair, and
plastering the face with artificial color
to make us think we can be beautiful
. . . when in reality we already are?!

The Master Artist has given each of us
just the right kind of beauty — both
inner and outer — to aid us in carrying out
our purpose for being here in this lifetime.

Let us accept the wonderful gift
given to us by such a gifted and
beneficent Creator of all Creation . . .
the creator of all that we are intended
to be . . . and in essence really are!

Most importantly . . .
Let us be more trusting of
the beauty of naturalness . . .
and the naturalness of beauty!

Many blessings to all you beautiful
creations of the Master Artist of All
. . . each and every one of you!
