Walking through a garden, field, or forest,
we can feel our mood shifted
by the vibrant royal colors that nature presents:
the greens and blues,
the yellows and magentas;
the lush textures and revealing forms.
In the presence of beauty or majesty,
lonely or depressed thought depart,
and anxiety and pressures relent.
The thoughts that pattern our mind are transformed when we are surrounded by nature.
Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche
