Nature is one of the greatest sources of our happiness.  In fact, humans had lived in the lap of nature for millions of years and their stay in modern cities is comparably very very short.  Still now majority of us do live in close proximity to nature.  In fact, our human race is dependent upon nature for its very survival (plants recycle carbon dioxide into oxygen; our food is a product of nature; and we can survive under a very limited range of variables of nature like temperature, etc.)

And the best part – nature is there for everybody to stand and observe and derive happiness and solace from.  It does not distinguish between rich and poor, strong and weak, man and woman.  Silvery sun is free, golden moon is free, cool breeze, warm seashore, imposing mountains, smooth flowing rivers, dark and inviting forests, all are free.

It is free, not because it is cheap, but it is rather priceless.

When we see the moon, we see it in its entirety, no matter how many millions of people are seeing it at the same time.   And similarly, the sky, the sun, the ocean, rain and sunshine, all are there for us to possess fully.  Each can stare at the sky and claim all of it for his or her happiness.

Nature understands your moods.  If you are sad, it is also sad with you.  But it does not make you sadder.  It does not lead you to further despair.  It can apply a gentle balm to your wounds and slowly lift your spirits, make you to see your little woes, worries, and wounds in the right perspective of infinite time and space.  You smile; you laugh; and you are happy again!
