  1. 1. Being Close to Nature In all things of nature there is something marvelous. - Aristotle
  2. 2. Body and Mind are organic parts of Material Energy.
  3. 3. The Supreme Lord is situated in everyone's heart, O Arjuna, and is directing the wanderings of all living entities, who are seated as on a machine, made of the material energy. Body and Mind are forms of Matter. The Soul is not. The Bhagavad Gita 18.61 isvarah sarva-bhutanam hrd-dese 'rjuna tisthati bhramayan sarva-bhutani yantrarudhani mayaya
  4. 4. The Vedas mainly deal with the subject of the three modes of material nature. Rise above these modes, O Arjuna. Be transcendental to all of them.

  11. 11. Sacred Universe – Harmony in Opposites The inviolable interconnectedness in Universe Versus The conquest of and control over Nature Instead of separating ourselves from life, we must instead be able to consciously choose to be part of Nature and enjoy it in cooperation, harmony and Love. In Universe at large, initiatory action is as indispensable as reception, tenderness is as necessary as vehemence, feeling is as important as thinking. Unnatural divorce between the Rational and the Intuitive. Competition versus Cooperation.
