Reasons to love trees
Joyce Meyer once said: “Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don’t see what goes on underground — as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don’t see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree”.
Undoubtedly, there are many reasons to love trees. First, they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen that we breathe. Second, they create a pleasant cool shade on a hot day, and are home to animals. And another reason — it is amazing how some of them look.
However, not all of the following plants are trees (wisteria — a vine, rhododendron — bush and baobab tree belongs to the family of cereals). Anyway, we can’t help admiring them because they are amazing, majestic and beautiful.
«If the house does not have a garden with an old tree, where, I do not understand, you will come to the quiet joy of life?» — wrote the ancient Chinese gardener named Chen Gao Zu. His love of trees and flowers found perfect expression in his essays and poems, brought fame to the wise Chinese «hermit who lives among the flowers.»
Some Chinese philosophers equate the role of trees in the garden to the role of clothing for men and women. It can emphasize some parts of the body, hide other and totally change the look of shapes underneath. And when trees and flowers are harmoniously connected, they make a «clothing» for the garden — the same as what people wear.
The trees in general are one of the best examples of the transformative power of nature, and we must always be aware of them coming from magic. People in the West imbued with understanding the need to establish relationships with other people, same old art teaches that no less important place in our lives is occupied by trees. And while we all are more concerned about the environment, we seem to not fully aware of how the human race is dependent on trees, as far as the survival of a species in nature due to the survival of others. The trees themselves generate life-giving energy and able to protect both people and buildings from the harmful effects of the environment.
Without trees people had nothing to breathe, they were not going to harvest because of the lack of rain (the origin of which occurs over forest area) and would not have had the wood, material, giving them shelter and heating them. It should be added that different tree species provide us with food, medicines and delight with their beauty. Many of the trees are above us, and most of them live much longer than us, and this is a tangible proof of their power.
The ancient sages also noted the ability of trees to do good to people, because a lot of trees have healing properties. Believe that the willow, for example, lowers high blood pressure and strengthens the bladder, and maple — a great painkiller, the plum tree is said to soothe the nerves.
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature — trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls. Mother Teresa
