There are also some reviews of the book on my website.This e-book version (2014) now includes a total of 71 analogies (there were 60 in the original edition) each of which serves as a teaching tool for human conduct and behaviour. I have thoroughly revised and updated the book, including the addition of several new illustrations. Each of the analogies includes an illustration to accompany the text, and there is a grand total of 78 black line illustrations. All artwork is by me, Stephen Austen, including the cover art.The story of Natures Wisdom began with my deep love and respect for Nature, for the animals, the forests, woodlands and untamed wilderness to the delicate flowers and busy insects underfoot. I wrote the book simply for the pleasure of it, whether it became published or not. By and by, it did evolve into a powerful teaching book and an excellent tool for meditation. Through my own personal observations and insights I recognised the lessons contained in the Natural World around us, and when others read the analogies in the manuscript they also recognised these valuable lessons and became inspired to look at Nature with deepening insights of their own.It makes for very easy reading as each of the 71 analogies can be read in less than five minutes. The reader may read one analogy per day and meditate on that lesson for the day, going slowly through the book in just over two months.The illustrations match each of the 71 analogies, having utilised my artistic skills to portray ink line-drawings of mountains, fruits, trees, insects, animals, heavenly bodies, birds, minerals, reptiles and the elements in action which dramatically and beautifully bring the analogies to life.Natures Wisdom is an e-book which is designed to inspire all of us to work upon the essential nature of our character- each analogy is used as a tool for developing the higher qualities or virtues which is a word rarely spoken of these days. Characteristics such as Calmness, Endurance, Fortitude, Faith, Patience, Flexibility, Grace, Modesty, Serenity, Courage, Confidence, Generosity, Responsibility and many others are encouraged through reading the outstanding examples of these very characteristics as witnessed in Nature around us. This is a book for all ages and all walks of life.I offer this book as a token of my own deep love and appreciation of Nature and hope that it will encourage your own insights and personal transformation through reading its many profoundly inspiring and moving lessons.Pages: 114Word Count: 30,089
