All of us are seeking inner happiness. Some people do it by spending time with family or friends. Others immerse themselves in a job or religious fervor. But the ones who have probably learned more about the art of true happiness are most likely those who have learned to be one with nature. They reflect on the abundance of beauty nature has provided us with and find that it inspires wisdom within their souls and stimulates their minds to great heights.

It can be truly awesome just looking at what nature has given us. Can you see power in the raging torrent of a river or receive cleansing from a gentle rain? Do waterfalls cause you to stop and meditate about them as a symbol of peaceful life? You can get a great deal of inner peace and serenity just by watching a peaceful stream flow softly by. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to think that you could experience all of this as close as your own backyard?

The world has been under the spell of water from time immemorial. All cultures are in awe of the power water can unleash at one moment only to show a benign kindness the next. We all have our own ways of becoming one with nature and the beauty of life. People who fail to stop and smell the roses, as they say, will find much more stress in their lives. The true meaning of life comes in reaching the inspirational and spiritual pinnacles that make for a successful existence. Having your own waterfall in your backyard or your home can serve as a constant reminder of what is important in life.

Although there is nothing like the tranquility of a waterfall out in the wilds, a bit of the feeling it conveys can be transferred to a rock waterfall creation of our own making. These waterfalls are as unique as the soul of the individuals who create them. Unfortunately, human beings don’t possess the power to create a truly natural environment, but with the help of modern concrete, pumps, and filters, we can design some inspirational replicas.

Some people have the good fortune to live amidst nature’s wonder. By looking out their doors they can gaze upon mountains or waterfalls. It is sad that this can’t be the case for all. By adding your own rock waterfall creation in your backyard, you’ll be passing the essence of your spirit to your neighbors. It will also add peace and serenity to the area it graces.

By using the creativity inside you, you can design a small trickling brook by an outdoor dining area. A rock waterfall cascading down an otherwise bare slope can add beauty to the world around you.

Waterfalls don’t have to have been born of nature in order to provide your home and family with a sense of deep relaxation and total oneness. Even a manmade waterfall adds art to the environment which can revitalize our spirits and recharge our tired souls. In all ways, emotionally, mentally, and physically, a waterfall in your backyard can add one more dimension to the meaning of home.

When creating their home waterfall, many people choose to recreate a special place in nature where they felt especially in touch and attuned.  Many people let their spirits wander free to come up with a personal custom design to express their inner being. You will be able to find a great deal of information on the internet to help you create this oasis of peace and tranquility so close to home.
