Expansion of Ideas
God made the country and Man Made the Town. 

Artificial, man-made objects can never be as beautiful as the works of nature. God made the fields, the birds, the mountains, the rivers, the valleys. What did man do? He only made the buildings that sit on God's creations. 

Take a look at our cities; the creation of man. They are ugly manifestations of hustle and bustle, hurry and flurry and a mechanical lifestyle. They are the cause of noise and pollution. Wherever man has established human settlements, he has brought with it innumerable problems. And what is worse, in order to construct his so-called creations, he does away with all the elements of nature that make life so beautiful. Man fills his surroundings with stone and cement and dirt and smoke, creating massive concrete jungles, and tarred four-lane highways. 

On the other hand, the countryside provides something silence or the pleasant noises of nature, fresh air, wholesome and nourishing food, simplicity, happiness and contentment. In fact, it is only the simple rural folk who know what true labour is, what true appetite is, what true satisfaction is, and what sound sleep really is. This is because they are in harmony with their environment. They have not interfered with God's creations and, as a result, enjoy the simple gifts of nature. 

Blessed indeed are those who live in the midst of surroundings created by God!
