Tree and Rock Beings in Central Park

by | Everyday Life in the Nature Realms

One of my favorite places for nature being photography is New York City’s Central Park. If you live near there, or go on a visit – be sure to take some time and witness what it is like for the Nature Beings to “hit the Big Time.” They are as extraordinary – and as varied – as the people, architecture and culture.

The function of earth’s nature beings, in God’s great universe, is to care for, and to be, the natural life forms of earth. They are responsible for the healthy upkeep of whatever part of the land is under their care. This could be a leaf, a flower, a tree, a garden, a city… When something throws their area of responsibility out of kilter, it is their job to restore order. In a large city like New York, the nature beings can become overwhelmed by human alterations. But Central Park was set aside as reserved for nature, and for the enjoyment of humans. So the nature beings there have grown and evolved into strong, resilient beings, for they are both honored and needed.

Nature beings sometimes work by identifying with their environment. Central Park visitors and “locals” are usually very active, aware, often sophisticated, with a wide variety of stories. Sometimes a tree or rock being will become intrigued by an energy it encounters and will explore it, creating visual images of what has come into its space. I’ve written often about the tree and rock beings I’ve encountered there, including Strawberry Fields and the gnome and his wife. 

Two of the beings I photographed on a recent visit.

The London Plane Trees are especially interested in studying the people around them. That makes sense, as these trees are believed to be a natural and unexpected cross between a London Plane and an American Sycamore, both of which do well in cities. The London Plane Tree is planted in many cities for this reason. Their mottled green-brown-light beige bark is striking. Their bulbous trunk formations are an excellent artist’s medium for the nature beings to shape.

This tree shown here has crafted a Shakespearean face at the base and it looks like one of the comedy characters above. Plus various other faces, which you can see when you shift your focus. This tree lives along the path that borders the Lake containing Bow Bridge.

This Manhattan Schist outcropping shown here lives in the woods next to Bethesda Terrace. It is filled with happy, protective faces – this is an accomplished nature being artist and if you shift your viewpoint you will find a good number of faces morphing into each other. Manhattan Schist is a metamorphic rock and is thus relatively easy to move about by the nature beings, to create their images.
