Every single thing in this world is born from nature. Humans, animals, plants, and even abiotic things such as rock and water are born from nature. Although we, humans, are born from it, do we understand about nature itself?
Every human has their own perspective about nature. To put it in simple definition, nature is a place that created by God for us, the living creature, to lived, along with everything that we need for survive. More simple definition, nature is what we are born with. Now we have knew already about the definition, but what we can learn from nature?
We always not realize what we can learn from nature. In this modern era, youth people are more prefer to play gadget than to enjoy the beautiful scenery of nature in this world and learn from it. Just look around your environment! From something that we always look every day, liked plants. Trees, we know that trees have so many benefits for us, give us oxygen, water, and food. Watch it carefully. A green leaf that grows on tree doesn’t resist turning red when autumn approaches. From trees, we can learn about acceptance and none resistance.
Other example is flowers. Flowers give us benefits from their fragrance and look. We can use flowers as a decoration. But, do you know what? Flowers don’t discriminate who they share their beauty and fragrance with. From them, we can learn about true compassion and love.
Are there more examples other than plants? We still have animals. Look at the baby birds when they learn how to fly! We must dare to take our feet off the ground, spread our wings, and soar, just like baby birds do. We learn about limitless freedom from them. Look at the ants and bees. Their community all participate together to benefit all those in community. What lesson do we get from them? We get lesson about responsibility and to do your best.
We can learn from living things, and how about other than that, such as scenery? Just look at the vast sky that extends above! The sky is backdrop of our mind. In other words, don’t thing too much. Look at the stars that sparkling beautifully in the middle of night sky. We have to shine bright like the stars.
Feel the wind that blowing gently! Not all things that exist can be seen or heard. It kinds of hard to conclude the lesson that we get from wind. But, we can learn that some things need to be failed from here. Look at the beautiful scenery of sunrise and sunset! The breathtaking colors of the sunrise and sunset show us that colors vibrate energy and have the power to elicit certain emotions and feelings. In short, we learn about colors of life.
How about the weathers, such as rain? What we can learn from rain? Water is required to cleanse negativity in the world and allow a space of clarity and that is the rain job. We have to allow a space of clarity in our mind and heart.
There are so much things that we can learn from nature. When we realize this? How long we will just sit in front of the computer and gadget, being an individual person? Open your eyes! Go outside and enjoy the nature! Watch it carefully, learn from it, and change to be a better person in the future.
