Nature is the way things are without any intervention from a human agency. It includes the elements of the natural world such as mountains, trees, animals, or rivers.
For me personally it means reusing materials and recycling.
Natural means ;ordinary daily things.For example,like my hair is natural, my legs are natural my ears are natural.

Naturalism is the understanding that there is a single, natural world as shown by science, and that we are completely included in it. Naturalism holds that everything we… are and do is connected to the rest of the world and derived from conditions that precede us and surround us. Each of us is an unfolding natural process, and every aspect of that process is caused, and is a cause itself. So we are fully caused creatures, and seeing just how we are caused gives us power and control, while encouraging compassion and humility. By understanding consciousness, choice, and even our highest capacities as materially based, naturalism re-enchants the physical world, allowing us to be at home in the universe. Naturalism shows our full connection to the world and others, it leads to an ethics of compassion, and it gives us far greater control over our circumstances. = Connection - Compassion - Control = Connection: Everything we are and do is completely connected to the rest of the world. Our bodies and minds are shaped in their entirety by conditions that precede us and surround us. Each of us is an unfolding, natural process, and every aspect of that process is caused, and is a cause itself. We are therefore entirely at home in the physical universe. Compassion: Seeing that we are fully caused creatures - not self-caused - we can no longer take or assign ultimate credit or blame for what we do. This leads to an ethics of compassion and understanding, both toward ourselves and others. We see that there but for circumstances go I. We would have been the homeless person in front of us, the convict, or the addict, had we been given their genetic and environmental lot in life. Control: Understanding how we are caused to behave as we do gives us increased powers of prediction and control. Instead of supposing people can simply will themselves to be otherwise, we concentrate our energies on creating the conditions which promote constructive personal and social change. The ethics of compassion is matched by a practical efficacy based in scientific knowledge. Now, here's a "trapped in the elevator" speech to give you a bit more detail: = - Introducing Naturalism - = Naturalism, in essence, is simply the idea that human beings are completely included in the natural world: there's nothing supernatural about us. Naturalism is based on science as the best, most reliable means for discovering what exists. Science shows that each and every aspect of a human being comes from and is completely connected to the natural world, and is understandable in terms of those connections. The naturalist view of ourselves is of course very different from traditional religious or supernatural understandings, and it has profound implications. We don't have souls that continue after death. Instead, we are fully physical creatures, fully caused to be who we are. We don't have free will in the sense of being able to choose or decide without being fully caused in our choices or decisions. Instead, as individuals we are part of the natural unfolding of the universe in all its amazing complexity. By understanding ourselves as fully caused, and by seeing just how we are caused (by our genetic endowment, upbringing, and social environments), we dramatically enhance our powers of prediction and control, both in our personal lives and in the larger social arena. Naturalism focuses our attention on what works, increasing self-efficacy and encouraging science-based, progressive social policies in areas such as criminal justice, social inequality, behavioral health, and the environment. Also, since we see that we aren't the ultimate originators of ourselves or our behavior, we can't take ultimate credit or blame for what we do. This reduces unwarranted self-righteousness, moral superiority, pride, shame, and guilt. And since we see others as fully caused - for instance substance abusers, criminal offenders, the destitute and homeless - we become less blaming, less punitive and more compassionate and understanding. People don't create themselves, so responsibility for their character and behavior isn't ultimately theirs, but is distributed over the many factors that created them. And after all, were we given their environmental and genetic conditions, we would have become what they are, and acted just as they did: there but for circumstances go I. This insight provides the basis for a naturalistic ethics of empathy and compassion that guides personal behavior and grounds effective social policy. As mentioned above, naturalism is premised on taking science as our way of knowing about the world, not tradition, intuition, sacred texts or pronouncements. By illuminating the causal connections between phenomena, science inevitably unifies what it discovers into a single, natural, multifaceted whole. If we take science seriously with regard to ourselves and our behavior, we are led to the conclusion that human beings are fully included in the natural world, and that we are completely physical creatures. More and more, biology and neuroscience show that the brain and body do everything that the soul was supposed to do. Even consciousness and our higher level capacities for rationality and choice are fully embodied, causal processes. Some might conclude from this that naturalism reduces human beings to mere mechanisms, mere automatons, but this doesn't follow. What follows is that the physical universe has produced, in us, marvelously complex and adaptive organisms, with the capacity for self-reflection, wonder, suffering, and joy. Far from mechanizing humanity, naturalism re-enchants the physical world by showing how consciousness and choice don't involve supernatural processes. They are natural processes, understandable by science. Amazingly enough, physical existence produces all these intricate phenomena quite nicely on its own. By acknowledging our origins in evolution, the naturalist perspective also enhances our feeling of kinship with the other species with which we share this planet, and our desire to sustain and nurture the planet itself. All sentient beings, including humanity, owe their existence to conditions that extend far beyond us in space and time. Seeing this, we find ourselves completely at home in the universe, full-fledged participants in the unfolding natural order.
The Song Human Nature By Michael Jackson Means If Your Having A Bad Day It's Just Human Nature!
unfortunately, i don't know. It is the same as saying what is the cause of, or what is the root source of. In other words, explain your problem in detail...get to the bottom …of it...the nature..true issue at hand.
In Ralph Waldo Emerson's Nature, Emerson first introduces the concept of "nature" in the first chapter. He sees nature as something that is always there, but not necessarily a…ccessible, just like the stars. The mind is open to the influence of natural things.
No, actually, "The Nature of Being" was not the title of a Monty Python film :-) Being, or existence, may be something that we are accustomed to taking for granted. …But, does existence exist, or is all of life a dream that only 'I' am dreaming? Even if it is merely a dream, then the dream exists. But, if existence is, then where does its is-ness come from?! Just what is existence?? Are all 'types' of existence fundamentally the same? (We had better be careful not question existence right out of existence!!) Those are all questions about the nature of being. A comprehensive and working definition or description of being, or existence, would be an analytical or functional account of existence itself. And, in a nutshell, that is just what is meant by this abstract notion, the-nature-of-being. To hold an enquiry into the nature of being is like me asking of you, "Please explain to me in terms I can understand, what human consciousness is - how it works." How might you start to answer such a question? Even the hottest philosophers do not know how to begin to address an issue like that. We would at least need to raise our own human consciousness to a higher state if we wanted a chance to study self-aware consciousness at an analytical level. That might ultimately be achieved through a lifestyle of keeping an open mind, spiritual reading, and meditation. Human beings apparently can, and typically do, 'mature' through several different levels of spiritual awareness even in one lifetime. Traditionally, the nature of being has been the subject of a branch of Metaphysics; more specifically, of the abstract and theoretical field called 'Ontology'. In that purely philosophical arena, basic categories, qualities and features of being or existence have been postulated and debated. This has become a vast and complex field taking in a lot of minute, hair-splitting debate and many points of contention. The subject of existence/being has raised a number of deep and important problems in metaphysics, the philosophy of language, and philosophical logic. As of now, there are no satisfactory philosophical accounts of existence. The presented question, however, is being asked within the particular context of Religion and Spirituality (and not philosophy) so that should remain the focal context for this answer. All of existence may be summed up as Life/the-Universe. Okay; then, what is Life/the Universe? One suggestion would be, "God", since Life, or the Universe, is both physical and spiritual (which in the broad sense means mental). And while God is knowable in as much as all of us are one with God, yet God is utterly mysterious in the sense that there is an infinite amount that we have yet to experience of God and of ourselves. The nature of being (that is, the nature of God) is thus a wide open subject. "I am that I am; I will be what I will be; I am inexhaustible possibility - the alpha and the omega, beginning and end, the all-in-all." God is over all and through all, yet remains infinitely mysterious! That is good; it is as it should be, for it means that we, God's offspring, have an infinite amount of exciting and rewarding unfolding and evolving ahead of us. During the course of our lives we naturally experience many different states of being. Up until now these states of being, whether enjoyed or not enjoyed by humankind, have very largely been turned on and off unconsciously. What is not yet widely known is that, for spiritual (i.e., sentient and self-aware) beings, like ourselves, the states of being that we experience may be consciously and deliberately chosen by us. We can voluntarily switch our own (inner) states of being. This has enormous implications for each and every one of us and for our world as a whole. It means that, as individuals and as a community we can change the nature of human being -- we can actually change the features and qualities of our own being. The states of being that we consciously or unconsciously choose for ourselves utterly change and define our lives, either for the better or for the worse. Moreover, those individual choices have knock-on effects on the states of being of the whole of our society (= our whole world). To sum that up, we human beings have an enormous potency that is not widely realised: Each one of us can directly and creatively participate in producing truly happy lives for ourselves and for the entirety of the world's population. Do we want a world that is enduringly peaceful, harmonious and happy? Certainly, we do! We can create that world, not by deliberately attempting to alter our behaviours, but, by changing what we choose to be. And the only way to change what we are -- to truly change the nature of our being -- is to creatively revise our rock-bottom beliefs about who and what we are. This may sound scary to some of us but this can be achieved in a gradual and tentative manner. Solid root beliefs give us strong and enduring motivation -- and such motivation can be evoked for constructive purposes or otherwise. (Notice how young terrorists are being strongly motivated.) It is therefore in our best interests to nurture and develop a spirituality that is expansive, inclusive, positive and creative rather than one that is narrow, exclusive, hostile, negative and destructive. Each one of us has the freedom, and thus the responsibility, to steward and nurture our own spirituality. Each individual has it within their self to be, and to remain, their own spiritual authority. This freedom remains ours forever -- neither pain nor death can change that. Refuse to take mundane existence for granted; not because one day existence might escape you, but for the reason that there are a lot more things in Heaven and Earth than have so far been dreamt of in human philosophy!
