A Zen Garden for the Herbs

I am inspired by the art of Zen gardens, they are built for the heart and are inspiration to the soul. In bringing up a Zen herb garden, the goal is to bring together the elements of serenity.

Elements of Zen Garden
The realm of calmness in a Japanese garden is in synchronization with nature. There is so much happening in the Nature if only you could listen, if only you could connect; to understand the tranquility is indeed an art. And that art of gardening we should learn to do – to connect with the environment in peace and harmony.

I do believe that certain people can communicate with the plants and trees. Try speaking to your herbs, they do respond. You can even feel the warmth of the plants when you enter your herb garden. The herbs can sense your vibes, so do the other shrubs and trees.

Zen shows how gardening can balance the need of humans and nature’s dictum; it is the epitome of human desires and Nature’s bounty. It is about blending the creative genius of the universe to human’s trivial needs.

To bring the mystic reverence to the science of gardening is not complex, for certain gardeners who have an intensive desire to connect, the truth reveals sooner in the fundamentals of soil, climate, birds, water and plants along with the extremely small insects and organism that complete the eco-system.

Creating a Zen Herb Garden
To create a Zen herb garden, the gardener needs to be sensitive and extremely aware of the surroundings, the earth and the plants. One needs to understand where the tranquility of terrain will match the streaming cascade and where an herb garden will bloom.

One needs to understand the pulse of the topography, training one’s mind with observation and focus one can achieve the desired landscaping. A garden is not an artificial creation, neither is it a deception. Let the natural garden grow, the secret is in respecting the law of nature and the eco-system. You may not have to summon the garden fairies and many other benefactors; they will automatically come to a true Zen garden.

A meditation place in the Zen herb garden will help generate the soothing vibrations. Such will be the vibes that anyone coming to the garden however, jittery and unsettled he or she might be, he or she will feel a calmness and peace beyond words can describe.
