God Is Nature and Nature Is God
July 8, 2022
I was inspired to perform an online search and found the results so interesting, that I decided to use the results (exactly how I found them) and comment on them instead. My comments are in green
How do you define nature?
1:the physical world and everything in it It is one of the most beautiful creatures found in nature. 2 : natural scenery or surroundings We took a hike to enjoy nature. 3 : the basic character of a person or thing Scientists studied the nature of the new substance.
I agree with this answer. However, nature is not just "the physical world." Metaphysically speaking, nature is both "God's physical and ethereal world."
What true nature means?
True nature is the essence of Living Being, the true nature of Living Being, but Living Being is reality however we happen to be experiencing it. In the condition that reveals the inherent purity of Living Being, its true nature is apparent: luminous, spacious, and brilliant.
I'm determining that what is meant by this explanation is that "nature is life." And seeing that God created all life "nature is God and God is nature." The very essence of nature is God's being which is part of God's character. Just as our physical body is part of our "being" the physical world is part of God's "being."
What is nature in our life?
It underpins our economy, our society, indeed our very existence. Our forests, rivers, oceans and soils provide us with the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we irrigate our crops with. We also rely on them for numerous other goods and services we depend on for our health, happiness and prosperity.
Therefore, God's nature is health, happiness, and prosperity. The physical side of God's nature like the water, air, and foliage i.e. fruits and vegetables are all part of the means in which The Creator helps us to maintain our earthly physical existence.
What is someone's nature?
Someone's nature is their character, which they show by the way they behave. Just how do the managers harness their energy, rivalry and ambitious nature into winning teamwork? She trusted people. That was her nature. Synonyms: temperament, character, personality, disposition More Synonyms of nature.
There is a saying that "character is destiny." God's "nature" is not only all around us, but within us too. When we go against that "divine nature" we attract great difficulties and endless worries. We then cannot decipher "truth" which means that we can no longer comprehend right-from-wrong and find displeasure in conducting ourselves in a way that results in happiness and wisdom. When we are connected to our "true God-like nature" our worldly personality (the ego) no longer controls us. We become less negative, confused, and hopeless.
Why is nature beautiful?
Emerson says that nature is beautiful because it is alive, moving, reproductive. In nature we observe growth and development in living things, contrasted with the static or deteriorating state of the vast majority of that which is man-made.
Nature is beautiful because "it is God's beauty that emanates from nature." When we are connected with physical nature i.e. taking a walk through the wilderness or being in awe of a picturesque view....that is God's beauty that you see in nature.
Are humans a part of nature?
When we see ourselves as a part of nature, we are fundamentally connected to nature. We don't see ourselves as separate, rather as another species in a larger ecosystem of the natural world. Nature isn't an “other” rather it is part of us and we are part of nature. This shifts our relationship to nature.
We are one with nature i.e God and nature are part of us. That connection links us with the Divine who created all things that were before and ever will be. When we are calm and focused we can "hear the wondrous silence in nature." When this happens, we are experiencing the quiet beauty of The Creator.
Who created nature?
The concept of a transcendent God, the creator of nature and its order, explicitly appeared in Thomas Aquinae (the world comes from God and returns to God), Modern philosophers and scientists.
This one is easy....God created nature. As the title of this post says "God Is Nature and Nature Is God."
