THE DIAMOND GARDEN

There is a healing quality to nature, which has been known for centuries be it taking time to smell the roses, meditating on a mountain, lying in a wildflower field, strolling by a meandering stream, or hiking in a forest. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, recognized this powerful attribute in his humbling statement: “Nature cures—not the physician.”

The design of the garden features the four elements: earth; water; fire; and air. The "diamond' in the garden is planted with lavender and forms the centre grid of perfect balance, which assists to balance everything around it.

 

Life on earth is a constant seeking to create balance: of the body, mind, and soul; of emotions; thoughts; relationships; habits. The brief moments when we attain perfect balance are the very moments of bliss that we experience in life.

The outlay of the garden is based on the principles of sacred geometry.

Clear examples of Sacred Geometry in Nature and matter are seen in all types of crystals, natural and cultured, the hexagonal geometry of snowflakes, creatures exhibiting logarithmic spiral patterns e.g. snails and various shellfish, birds, and flying insects, exhibiting clear Golden Mean proportions in bodies & wings, the way in which lightning forms branches, the way in which rivers branch, the geometric molecular and atomic patterns that all solid metals exhibit and the way in which a tree spans out so that all its branches receive sunlight.

 

In space, nature’s letters of creation are shapes; in time, they are rhythms. These rhythms range from the circadian rhythms that govern human life activity to the great cycles of time discussed and observed by major traditions around the world.

 

Sacred Geometry takes on another whole level of significance when grounded in the experience of self-awareness. From the farthest reaches of the cosmos to the atomic structure of a single cell within the body, the same laws of form and mathematics apply. The secret to life is in these forms and numbers.

Life on earth is a constant seeking to create balance: of the body, mind, and soul; of emotions; thoughts; relationships; habits. The brief moments when we attain perfect balance are the very moments of bliss that we experience in life.

Mineral aspects of hardness, brightness, and translucence make the diamond a symbol of perfection. In the Western tradition, the diamond is the symbol of universal sovereignty, incorruptibility, and absolute truth. In Renaissance art, the diamond symbolizes equanimity, courage in the face of adversity, the power to free the spirit from every fear, the integrity of character, and good faith. The diamond is the symbol of constancy, strength, and other heroic virtues - radiating the Divine. The diamond symbolized perfection in its solidity and near indestructibility. From this, the diamond becomes a symbol of strength in a physical sense and righteousness in a spiritual sense. It equally represents truth, as well as strength.

The trained eye sees the diamond in others. To fulfill its purpose, the diamond needs to be excavated, cut, and polished. This is the mission with which every one of us has been charged. The first step is gaining the awareness that in the hard rock is hidden a precious diamond. We must identify the diamond quality and reach for it with unconditional love. The second step is excavation and cutting: clearing away the externals and allowing the diamond to emerge. To reveal the diamond in a raw world of rock requires peeling away the outer layers, shedding unrefined habits, eliminating the inappropriate—allowing for the diamond to surface. Some stones need to be sawed, others cleaved. They then need to be rounded out and polished and finally, this process yields the completed diamond that radiates and beautifies this world.
