The Chemistry of the Human Body and Mind; The Calmistry, Calmest Tree of the Human Soul
The facts and testimonials of nature proudly speak for themselves. The incredible importance of trees is beyond compare, let us endeavor to carefully understand and nurture our nature that has been nurturing and prolifically sustaining us ever since life came into being miraculously, God bless.
The following are some excerpts, their credentials are humbly seeking to resonate the glorious greatness of trees for the essence and purity of trees are truly the symbols of one of the greatest inspirations and motivations.
In this context, let us briefly examine a tree. It stands calm and still, serene and tranquil and does not change its preferentiality or indisposition or attitude or behavior or transform itself; in any weather, it stays true to its nature and not the whether where human beings keep sometimes caught in the procrastination mode of opting to let go of what they have to embrace what they don;t need to have!
The following is a brief prelude of the excepts, truly amazing:- (Quote)
According to the Arbor Day Foundation, “a mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year.” Here are some other quoted figures regarding the amount of oxygen produced by a tree:
“A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 lbs./year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings.” – McAliney, Mike. Arguments for Land Conservation: Documentation and Information Sources for Land Resources Protection, Trust for Public Land, Sacramento, CA, December, 1993
“One acre of trees annually consumes the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent to that produced by driving an average car for 26,000 miles. That same acre of trees also produces enough oxygen for 18 people to breathe for a year.”– New York Times
” A 100-ft tree, 18″ diameter at its base, produces 6,000 pounds of oxygen.” – Northwest Territories Forest Management
“On average, one tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year. Two mature trees can provide enough oxygen for a family of four.” – Environment Canada, Canada’s national environmental agency
“Mean net annual oxygen production (after accounting for decomposition) per hectare of trees (100% tree canopy) offsets oxygen consumption of 19 people per year (eight people per acre of tree cover), but ranges from nine people per hectare of canopy cover (four people/ac cover) in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to 28 people/ha cover (12 people/ac cover) in Calgary, Alberta.” – U.S. Forest Service and International Society of Arboriculture joint publication

There is truly far much more that we can learn from trees but once we study and learn the salient vital factors, its what contributions we earnestly make towards the conservation and ecological factors of Nature and the Universe that will play a determinant role in our lives.
Remember, apart from trees, our civilization has been gifted with innumerable resources which also intends to refer to the sanctity as well as the purity of our bodies and minds. To help navigate, we have been equipped with the creative brilliance of our soulful insights, our intuitive and reasoning intellectual faculties that empower us at each and every stage of our lives when we live a purposeful life with conscious awareness in ensuring the practice of righteousness in all that we think, do, express and implement and most importantly living our dharma (duties) to fulfill our karma (deeds), for we reap what we sow; the law of cause and effect predominantly prevails, whether a few centuries ago, in this century or further ahead across the glorious advent of the passage of time that silently reflects upon what we are contemplating and then with that priceless contemplation whether we are fulfilling the commitments, the promises and the pledges that we made towards ourselves, towards others around us and most importantly towards Mother Nature and the Universe, God bless.
For those who may seek objective answers regarding the evolutionary factors relating to trees or how we human beings are inextricably associated with the well being of trees, well, they may keep exploring whats all across the Universe but the divine element within each and every form of God’s creations exemplifies the significant importance of calmness in our lives. We may achieve how much ever, but if we do not realize or experience calmness in our lives, then we are intensifying our aging process alarmingly since being calm is not just an art, it is an innate and inherent characteristic of humanity and respectfully admiring the endurance of the trees, we will be humbled that the wisdom Nature and the Universe shares with all of creation is also available to us when we intently listen to the sacred conversation of the mind of our heart as well as the heart of our mind which time and again inspire us to consciously awaken to our true nature, our true self and our divine essence and do something meaningful and purposeful in each and every moment of our lives so that we could give back a humble token of thanks to Mother Nature and the Universe by each resourcefully treading across the pathways of our lives with a perspective of compassion, due diligence, prudence, righteousness, sincerity, tenacity, truthfulness and our brilliant creative wisdom infinitely, God bless.
