Top 10 Reasons Why I Love Nature (and why you might too…)
I get emails almost every day from people telling me how much they love nature.
It’s really not surprising to me…
Nature is filled with so much beauty, life & wisdom that it’s only natural to feel uplifted in the presence of big trees & singing birds.
But have you ever thought about why we feel this way?
I’ve learned from experience that being in touch with a genuine love for nature makes it easier to share that love and pass it on to others in our life (like children, friends & family).
To cultivate appreciation for all aspects of nature is an essential step towards bringing our modern society into harmony with life on this earth.
So I thought it would be fun to share a list of my own reasons why I love nature, and I’m excited to discover which ones resonate the deepest with you!
Here are 10 reasons why I love nature (and why you might too).
1. Nature Brings Us To Our Senses
One of the unique things about nature is that it pulls us into experiencing sensory awareness, rather than being caught up in our thoughts.
When your senses are captivated by the beauty and mystery of a natural setting, it slows all the noise of mental chatter that normally clogs up our attention.
Consider that having this quiet mind grounded in the senses is a really huge shift in awareness from how most modern people spend their time.
Most people are extremely disconnected from their senses on a day-to-day basis.
We live in a world of almost constant bombardment of screens, information, technology, and long boring hours working inside surrounded by concrete walls.
It’s no wonder people feel overwhelmed, stressed, anxious and burnt out, moving through their days in a haze that makes it difficult to fully enjoy life.
For this reason, nature is a balancing force that helps us clear our mind of all the scattered junk and worries.
It gets you out of your head and into your body.
In this way, nature not only evokes new sensory experiences, but also leads us to find clarity of mind so life makes more sense.
It gives us a chance to step away from our worries and simply come to our senses for a little while.
And doesn’t it feel so good to be seeing things clearly again! Thank you nature.
2. Nature Makes You Smarter
In addition to the mental clarity of being called to our senses, I also believe nature makes people genuinely smarter.
In fact, in Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, there’s an entire intelligence type called the naturalist intelligence .
Naturalist intelligence is a gift for observing sensory patterns and being aware of life in our environment.
In my experience however, this skill isn’t just limited to people who have naturalist intelligence as their primary style.
I believe that being aware of life is an innate human skill that plays into everyone’s ability to process and make sense of all areas of human intelligence.
My personal experience is that before I began studying nature, I was very self-absorbed and unable to see what was happening outside of my own little bubble of inward attention.
As a teenager I began consciously exploring the world of animals , birds , plants & trees to hone and develop my basic observation skills .
Amazingly, I found that studying nature helped me grow in ways I never even imagined starting out.
I found that awakening my naturalist intelligence helped me become smarter in all areas of life.
Now I get to be known amongst my friends & family as someone who is tremendously skilled at solving natural mysteries.
What’s more, I find the deeper I go into nature, the more capacity I have to improve my relationships, my career, my ability to absorb information and have clear perceptions in all areas of life.
Truly naturalist intelligence helps me be smarter in all areas of life, which is a really great reason to love being outside.
(I also created an entire home study course on awakening naturalist intelligence if you’d like to learn more on this topic)
3. You Get To Solve Cool Mysteries
Everyone loves a good mystery right?
Humans are naturally drawn to mysteries because we’re innately curious beings with the insatiable urge to explore & discover.
When we get into nature, suddenly we find a magical world filled with exciting opportunities to have thrilling adventures.
Everywhere you look has new mysteries that pull us deeper into our experience of natural life:
- What tree did this nut come from?
- What animal left these tracks?
- What bird is that building a nest on the street corner?
- Where does the owl sleep during the day?
- How does the coyote move through our yard without us knowing?
These are all questions that teach us how to engage our minds, and engage with life more fully… while also activating our emotions in a truly meaningful way.
There’s something deeply thrilling about following a distant noise in the forest and then discovering a wild animal hiding in the bushes.
Solving mysteries fulfills our deep longing for adventure & excitement, while also teaching science and critical thinking skills in a way that makes learning genuinely fun.
Which brings us to the next profoundly simple reason why I love nature…
4. Nature Is Incredibly Fun
Everyone loves having fun and one thing I’ve learned is that nature really does have something fun for everyone.
For many people, their love of nature is just a childhood memory of long summer days at the farm catching frogs and playing robin hood in the forest.
For other it’s as simple as planting a garden and watching the squirrels be ridiculous at the bird feeder.
Do you remember making forts in the woods when you were a kid?
Or maybe you love the challenge and intensity of rock climbing, or white water rafting.
What are some of YOUR favorite memories of having fun in nature?
Too often people will lump things that are “fun” into the category of “non-essential”.
But as with all things in life, it is really important to have balance.
If you approach life as a constant work and struggle then you never get any time to recharge and reconnect with what brings you joy.
Nature starts by letting us relax, while providing a stimulating atmosphere for the senses. Then before long, you realize you’re having the time of your life.
Adventuring and exploring outdoors gets us ready to make our positive impact on the world, and nature makes it super easy.
So. Much. Fun!
5. Nature Feeds Us
It doesn’t matter if you’re an omnivore, carnivore, vegetarian or vegan… if it weren’t for nature, you wouldn’t have food.
Think about that for a moment…
When is the last time you stopped to really appreciate this most basic necessity that nature provides so abundantly?
We get so much pleasure and enjoyment from eating food. It’s an opportunity to socialize and rebuild our physical, mental & emotional strength for life.
With just a bit of focus and attention, we can enhance this connection with our food to increase the benefits we get every time we eat.
By growing food in our backyards, patios and community gardens, we contribute to food security while connecting with our food source.
Homegrown food is fresher and contributes to a healthy local ecosystem and biodiversity.
Wild edibles are packed with nutrition and there’s something special about freshly picked food that just can’t compare to what you find in the grocery store.
I love food, therefore I love nature!
6. Nature Helps Us Feel Wild Again
Somewhere deep inside the DNA of every human being is the memory of long ago when all people were truly wild.
It’s a bit funny to think of modern humans as like domesticated animals, but it actually is a fairly accurate comparison.
Our gradual innovation over thousands of years has created lifestyles of incredible comfort for much of the world’s population.
We’ve gained a lot of amazing comforts & security, but we’ve also lost the primal benefits that come from being exposed to cold, physical exercise & the intense need to keep our senses sharp as both hunter and hunted.
We no longer need to survive by our wits & survival instincts, but those survival instincts are still inside waiting to be activated.
Have you ever felt the surge of energy & electrical aliveness that comes from returning to a more wild relationship with nature, even if just temporarily?
I believe this primal feeling of wildness is the impetus behind so many movements like forest bathing, cold exposure & functional movement activities like parkour & going barefoot.
People consistently report that putting their body & mind through these mildly stressful situations in nature that emulate ancestral experiences has incredible benefits on their life as a whole.
It fulfills the deep longing to adventure in the wild, so we connect with our inner resources and charge ourselves up with vigour.
This doesn’t mean we need to stop enjoying our modern comforts, but if we want to live the best possible lives, we also can’t lose touch with our primitive roots.
So when’s the last time you felt truly wild?
7. Wild Animals Are Amazing
Have you ever had a close encounter with a wild animal?
There’s almost nothing in the world that can stimulate awareness and get your heart thumping like a close encounter with a truly wild animal.
I learned this first hand one day when a family of cougars walked around me while I was sitting outside doing my daily sensory awareness exercises .
At the time this experience was incredibly scary, but it also remains to this day one of the most inspirational and impactful moments of my life.
Seeing such powerful animals in their native habitat taught me things about my fear response, sensory awareness & mental focus under pressure that changed who I am as a person.
It taught me to appreciate my life and the life of everything around me.
Even animals that aren’t at all dangerous can have similar effects on human consciousness as long as they really are wild.
Another time, I heard some bird alarms up ahead on the trail, and when I stalked up to see who was causing the disturbance , I saw two baby raccoons tumbling in the bushes!
I watched them for a few minutes and then quietly snuck back out before they could see me.
These magical moments of connection with wild animals teach us that we’re not all that different from the other living things on this earth.
It’s hard to put the experience of awe & wonderment into words, but if you’ve ever had a close encounter with a wild animal then you know what I’m talking about… and chances are you love these experiences as much as I do!
8. Nature Boosts Creativity
Since the dawn of time, humans have been inspired to the heights of creativity & innovation by spending quality time close to nature.
Scientists, philosophers, artists & social leaders have wandered forests and hills looking for those special moments of clarity when inspiration hits and brings insight to how we see the world.
This is something that happens for everyone who spends enough time outside in nature with the intention to evolve their understanding of life.
I personally find this is one of the best ways to get a massive influx of fresh new ideas.
Whenever I have a creative problem in my business or relationships, I just go outside and pretty soon there are new ideas flowing in.
I might start off feeling anxious or uncertain, but then as I wander and sit quietly in beautiful places, I start to feel better which clears my mind and lets me see new opportunities I hadn’t considered.
I love that we have this never ending source of wisdom, inspiration & creativity right at our fingertips!
9. Nature Brings Inner Peace
Have you ever had the experience of being somewhere so incredibly beautiful that you couldn’t help but feel peace inside?
I think most people have had moments like this…
Whether it’s sitting quietly on the pond edge at first light, hearing frogs calling and gently filling the air with their songs as the sky turns to day and lighting the trees up with the fiery morning sunrise.
Or slowly wandering through an old growth forest with the fresh scent of rain and dappled sunshine dotting the soft earth, amplified by an ancient stillness that seems to slow time all the way down.
These moments of natural beauty give us the same cherished peace & inner quiet that so many people seek through meditation & mindfulness practices.
Yet the amazing thing is feeling this peaceful state of mind doesn’t depend on doing any fancy meditations or techniques.
it’s simply you resonating with the calm atmosphere and beauty of nature.
In this way, nature helps us experience a more natural state of meditation & inner peace.
And for many people, sitting quietly in nature actually provides a more effective pathway to access the deeper states of peaceful consciousness that so many are seeking.
Step outside, tune in, and find your peace with nature!
10. Nature Makes Us Happy
At the end of the day, people are just plain happier with nature than they are without.
When I first got seriously interested in the outdoors, I viewed nature as a way to expand my mind and activate my senses by being more mindful.
Eventually as I began to spend more time outside , I came to realize that even beyond the direct personal and professional benefits, it just makes me so happy to be surrounded by natural things.
Nature became less about me trying to get some sort of benefit for myself, and more about just enjoying how much I love birds, trees, flowers, sunshine, puffy clouds, mountains & meadows.
If you give it a try, I think you’ll find yourself falling in love with nature too.

Dear Brian, I do not know where you live; but it must be amazing. To have cougars walk around you; just takes my breath away just thinking about it. I h live in Northwest Pennsylvania-very close to the lake and the Presque Isle Penninsula. I have seen deer, coyotes, baby bear, raccoons, woodchucks, rabbits, and an assortment of squirrels and chipmunks. I love the tiny little piece of wild backyard that allows for theses critters to wander through. There just is not the amount of open land around here anymore to support the wildlife that used to live here. I feel sad for the animals that are being displaced. The husband is being treated for lung cancer right now and all he is going through takes much of my time. I have created a space outside to watch the birds and the critters when I can grab a minute for myself. I meet with GOD who created it all; and breathe in HIS goodness and mercy; I tell HIM Thank-You for all of HIS gorgeous creations of all nature, that we all can enjoy and appreciate. I would love to spend time with you and your followers but right now I just do not have the time. I will soon enough and believe me I will join you all.

Love is a set of emotions and behaviors characterized by intimacy, passion, and commitment. It involves care, closeness, protectiveness, attraction, affection, and trust. Love can vary in intensity and can change over time. It is associated with a range of positive emotions, including happiness, excitement, life satisfaction, and euphoria, but it can also result in negative emotions such as jealousy and stress.
When it comes to love, some people would say it is one of the most important human emotions . Yet despite being one of the most studied behaviors, it is still the least understood. For example, researchers debate whether love is a biological or cultural phenomenon.
Love is most likely influenced by both biology and culture. Although hormones and biology are important, the way we express and experience love is also influenced by our personal conceptions of love.
What are some of the signs of love? Researchers have made distinctions between feelings of liking and loving another person.
Zick Rubin's Scales of Liking and Loving
According to psychologist Zick Rubin, romantic love is made up of three elements:
- Attachment : Needing to be with another person and desiring physical contact and approval
- Caring : Valuing the other person's happiness and needs as much as your own
- Intimacy : Sharing private thoughts, feelings, and desires with the other person
Based on this view of romantic love, Rubin developed two questionnaires to measure these variables, known as Rubin's Scales of Liking and Loving . Whereas people tend to view people they like as pleasant, love is marked by being devoted, possessive, and confiding in one another.
Types of Love
Not all forms of love are the same, and psychologists have identified a number of different types of love that people may experience. These types of love include:
- Friendship : This type of love involves liking someone and sharing a certain degree of intimacy.
- Infatuation : This is a form of love that often involves intense feelings of attraction without a sense of commitment; it often takes place early in a relationship and may deepen into a more lasting love.
- Passionate love : This type of love is marked by intense feelings of longing and attraction; it often involves an idealization of the other person and a need to maintain constant physical closeness.
- Compassionate/companionate love : This form of love is marked by trust, affection, intimacy, and commitment.
- Unrequited love : This form of love happens when one person loves another who does not return those feelings.
Robert Sternberg's Triangular Theory of Love
Specifically, psychologist Robert Sternberg developed his well-regarded triangular theory of love in the early 1980s. Much research has built upon his work and demonstrated its universality across cultures.
Sternberg broke love into three components—intimacy, passion, and commitment—that interact to produce seven types of love .
Is Love Biological or Cultural?
Some researchers suggest that love is a basic human emotion just like happiness or anger, while others believe that it is a cultural phenomenon that arises partly due to social pressures and expectations.
Research has found that romantic love exists in all cultures, which suggests that love has a strong biological component. It is a part of human nature to seek out and find love. However, culture can significantly affect how individuals think about, experience, and display romantic love.
Is Love an Emotion?
Psychologists, sociologists, and researchers disagree somewhat on the characterization of love. Many say it's not an emotion in the way we typically understand them, but an essential physiological drive. Psychologist and biologist Enrique Burunat says, "Love is a physiological motivation such as hunger, thirst, sleep, and sex drive." Conversely, the American Psychological Association defines it as "a complex emotion." Still others draw a distinction between primary and secondary emotions and put love in the latter category, maintaining that it derives from a mix of primary emotions.
How to Practice Love
There is no single way to practice love. Every relationship is unique, and each person brings their own history and needs. Some things that you can do to show love to the people you care about include:
- Be willing to be vulnerable.
- Be willing to forgive.
- Do your best, and be willing to apologize when you make mistakes.
- Let them know that you care.
- Listen to what they have to say.
- Prioritize spending time with the other person.
- Reciprocate loving gestures and acts of kindness.
- Recognize and acknowledge their good qualities.
- Share things about yourself.
- Show affection.
- Make it unconditional.
Impact of Love
Love, attachment, and affection have an important impact on well-being and quality of life. Loving relationships have been linked to:
- Lower risk of heart disease
- Decreased risk of dying after a heart attack
- Better health habits
- Increased longevity
- Lower stress levels
- Less depression
- Lower risk of diabetes
Tips for Cultivating Love
Lasting relationships are marked by deep levels of trust, commitment, and intimacy. Some things that you can do to help cultivate loving relationships include:
- Try loving-kindness meditation. Loving-kindness meditation (LKM) is a technique often used to promote self-acceptance and reduce stress, but it has also been shown to promote a variety of positive emotions and improve interpersonal relationships. LKM involves meditating while thinking about a person you love or care about, concentrating on warm feelings and your desire for their well-being and happiness.
- Communicate. Everyone's needs are different. The best way to ensure that your needs and your loved one's needs are met is to talk about them. Helping another person feel loved involves communicating that love to them through words and deeds. Some ways to do this include showing that you care, making them feel special, telling them they are loved, and doing things for them.
- Tackle conflict in a healthy way . Never arguing is not necessarily a sign of a healthy relationship—more often than not, it means that people are avoiding an issue rather than discussing it. Rather than avoid conflict, focus on hashing out issues in ways that are healthy in order to move a relationship forward in a positive way.
As Shakespeare said, the course of love never did run smooth. No relationship is perfect, so there will always be problems, conflicts, misunderstandings, and disappointments that can lead to distress or heartbreak.
So while love is associated with a host of positive emotions, it can also be accompanied by a number of negative feelings as well. Some of the potential pitfalls of experiencing love include:
- Increased stress
While people are bound to experience some negative emotions associated with love, it can become problematic if those negative feelings outweigh the positive or if they start to interfere with either person's ability to function normally. Relationship counseling can be helpful in situations where couples need help coping with miscommunication, stress, or emotional issues.
History of Love
Only fairly recently has love become the subject of science. In the past, the study of love was left to "the creative writer to depict for us the necessary conditions for loving," according to Sigmund Freud . "In consequence, it becomes inevitable that science should concern herself with the same materials whose treatment by artists has given enjoyment to mankind for thousands of years," he added.
Research on love has grown tremendously since Freud's remarks. But early explorations into the nature and reasons for love drew considerable criticism. During the 1970s, U.S. Senator William Proxmire railed against researchers who were studying love and derided the work as a waste of taxpayer dollars.
Despite early resistance, research has revealed the importance of love in both child development and adult health.

Love For Nature (Essay Sample)
Love for nature.
The word nature usually associates with beauty and calmness. Whenever a person hears of the word nature, a feeling of enthusiasm, freshness, uplift and happiness is felt. People understand nature as anything that is on the earth that is comprised of the surrounding such as, the vegetation, animals, food, water, plants, the buildings, plantations and soil among others. However, some understand nature as the surrounding that is revealed uniquely in terms of different shapes. Such as the green and charming mountains, the snow-capped mountain peaks, the rising and setting the sun on the horizon which does not feed away from the memory. Other beautiful sceneries such as oceans, forests, rivers and valleys form part of nature. Human belief and love for nature differ depending on the culture as well as their social settings. In Stone Age period, human being derived its food from nature through the gathering of fruits, hunting of the wild animals before the early agrarian revolution when people started practicing agriculture as a source of food. In these early ages, the man also used nature as places for worship. However, with the advent of the industrial revolution and early settler, many people never cared about nature as a source of life due to its vast coverage that seemed untouchable. Therefore, accessibility of minerals, need for more agricultural production, and encroachment into the forested areas led to more destruction of the beautiful nature. Even though mankind has caused such damages to nature, all benefits of mankind are derived from nature hence it is essential to love and care for nature.
Nature is a source of inspiration. There is no doubt that nature brings about inspiration. This is usually realized when a person’s mind is full of stress and everything seems difficult and overshadowed in the mind. Taking a walk in the park at any moment brings about excitement due to the admiration of the different features. The display of flora and fauna provide an endless description of the beauty that flows in a person’s mind. This due to the uniqueness of nature coupled with the beauty of the sun rays observed from the horizon. The beautiful dew drops on the leave blades and on the grass are iridescent pearls. At night, the crescent moon that is silvery and the twinkling milky way are entertaining. The waterfalls and the roaring oceans, thunder and flash lightning with rainfall give the violent aspect of nature.
Each and every season comes with its own beauty and uniqueness. For instance, summer season brings good heat and nice sun rays. This brings mellow mood coupled with starry summer nights that come with their fresh air cool breeze. On a separate note, the autumn comes with its cry skies with the mad wind in gray streets with nicely falling leaves. This is the time to enjoy the loneliness and share the passion with the weather. The winter is always good due to its magic take away of the universe fantasy due to the fluffy snows. It brings the beauty of Christmas with new expectations of New Year. Lastly, spring has welcoming warmth coupled with a beauty of nature whereby plants produce new leaves and the blossoming of the new plants. There is usually a refreshing air with aromas that makes a person fall in love with nature. This kind of feeling brings about hope, healing, new discovery and better future.
In conclusion, it is difficult to deny the beauty of nature that makes a person fall in love with its uniqueness in different seasons, the nature of the terrains, the landscape, and the Horizon Mountains are indeed beautiful to watch.

The Nature of Love
Much ado about nothing essay love.
One of the most complicated experiences in life, love cannot be precisely defined, but some basic indications help to characterize the feeling. Love is a very deep, passionate affection one person has for another or a relationship of the same nature that implies a unique intensity of emotion. It requires an especially strong connection and compatibility between two people, usually identified by a total understanding and respect for each other and a fundamental similarity in ideology. Love can also be seen in the way it alters people’s normal behavior; when someone is in love, the object of their affection seems like the most important thing in the world, and they do extreme things for that feeling to be requited. Love cannot easily be

To Have Or To Be By Erich Fromm
People and other animals have a tendency to feel love or to be in love. Animals pretty much are different from animals involving emotion they may seem as if they love their toys or the food that their owner gives them and even the owner but animals don't have a sense of understanding on what love is. People on the other hand feel as if they have a understanding of the word love but do they really have an actual meaning of what love or to feel what love is. Is love just a made up English word that no one knows about or is it an emotion that everyone can feel. I personally feel as if I know what love is. For example, I know that I love my mom and when I see my mother and father I know they love each other that's why they got married. But, as I read the passage on love in Erich Fromm's book To Have Or To Be looking from a philosopher's perspective on it has a whole different meaning on the understanding of what people may know what love truly means. In this essay I will be giving my point of view of what love is and my meaning and points from Erich Fromm's book.
Romeo And Juliet Love Essay
Love is defined in numerous ways. It is one of the first and foremost feelings that each being experiences throughout their lifetime. The simple word goes a long way, as it triggers differing images to people. For instance, there is the romantic love that many aspire to have. Additionally, there is also familial and neighborly love. However, as great as love is, the authenticity of it is what discombobulates many. Love may be the feeling that is life sustaining, but at the same time, it can also be life threatening. Humans are vulnerable to fall into an untruthful love due to the fact that we fantasize over the thought of being in love. Through William Shakespeare’s tragic play, “Romeo and Juliet,” a fabricated false love is manifested.

Have you ever felt the feeling of butterflies in your stomach or heard the phrase “my heart skipped a beat for you”? As children, we grew up learning from our elders and experiencing new beginnings in life. Much of our knowledge has been brought upon by what we see and hear, rather of what we know.

What is love really? Love cannot be directly defined in any simple way. It is a force of nature that no one can control. The feeling of love is way beyond any human being and is extremely difficult to interpret on the surface. Love can be something as simple as a small feeling of affection for an object or hobby. It could also be something deeper such as the love someone might have for his family, friends, or a pet. One of the great things about love is that love is completely and utterly free. It can’t be bought, sold, or traded. Love radiates like the sun, and as it says in Corinthians 13:4.7-8, “Love is patient, is kind. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Analysis Of Kolodny And Velleman On Love
Love is unique in its striking ability to be a driving force in dictating interpersonal relationships. It patterns behavior and orients individuals towards their distinct, unique attractions. According to Velleman, love penetrates deeper than one’s qualities; it extends to one’s rational will, or the essence of a person. To him, though love appears to have particularity, it is also a moral emotion. Kolodny subscribes to the relationship theory, asserting that an ongoing, interpersonal, and historical relationship with a relative is a part of the reason for love. In Kolodny’s view, the existence of the true self is irrelevant, as is the morality of love. Both Velleman and Kolodny disprove the quality theory; however, their perceptions of love and its morality differ. I believe that Kolodny is correct in his view that morality is irrelevant to love and that there must be factual reasons for love. Although it is enticing to believe that one is attracted to the essence of another, the essence is not motivation enough for love. The relationship theory takes into account the motivation needed to love a particular person from a historical, interpersonal, and ongoing perspective.

The love story is one of the oldest and most cherished traditions in any world culture. The prevalence of romantic works throughout history, whether Greek myths, Jane Austen’s dramatic narratives, or today’s dime-a-dozen romantic novels, ultimately encourages us to believe in the power of true love. We identify with the archetypal star-crossed lovers, who combat established convention in order to assert their romance, because we too yearn for our own “happily-ever-afters.” When used in conjunction with reason, love is the highest form of compassion – without it, we could not possibly interact productively with one another or develop as individuals. But when we take a new perspective and examine love as an independent,

Definition Essay: What Is Love?
What is Love? Well as stated by the dictionary: Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection to impersonal.

The Bear Came Over The Mountain By Alice Munro Essay
Love exists in the short story “The Bear Came Over the Mountain” by Alice Munro and in the short story “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” by Raymond Carver. in Munro’s short story the plot is that of a mentally ill wife, Fiona, who falls in love with another patient while her husband still tries to hang on to their old love. Her husband eventually wants to have an affair with the wife of the man his wife is having an affair with. Their love changed because of their circumstances due to ill health. Carver’s story discusses the different definitions of love due to the type and quality of relationships; everyone has a different definition. Love also exists all over the world within different environments and cultures. The concept of love depends upon the environment in which it inhabits. Love is dependent on the life of the people in love and it also depends on their current environment. Nature and nurture are also huge factors into the development and process of love. What nature and nurture mean is whether it is due to how the person lives and acts along with their personality compared to whether it’s all in their genetics beforehand. Love is more on the nurture side instead of the nature side of human experience.

For the Love of Nature
God created the beautiful earth,
To the trees and flowers gave birth
The life-giving rain he sent down
The mountain he covered with a snowy crown!
Nature is the most precious gift given to mankind and it is our duty to save it. But man is destroying it for his own selfish ends. He is cutting down the trees, killing wildlife, and polluting the air with poisonous gases. Many fish have perished, the flowers have wilted, and bright, colourful butterflies can hardly be seen any more. We are steadily moving towards the path of destruction.
Imagine a world where there will be no forests, only concrete jungles; no water, only acid rain; no birds and animals, only robots, and no fresh air, only smoke-filled clouds. For the love of nature, we have to preserve it and save our planet from being wiped out. Only when we succeed in doing this can we rejoice once again in the glory of the sunlight falling on mountain peaks, the rushing waters of melting glaciers, the fertile river banks, and the fragrance of rose petals.
