A to Z Challenge – Nature and I
You can read my earlier posts of this challenge here.
Imagine a morning scene unfold in a metropolis. There is a mad frenzy in houses, roads, stations, to reach school, workplace or where ever one is headed to. Man, always seems to be in a rush, stressed out for time, on the run, all the time. All this leads to a total burn out. Pressure and hurrying always hinders productivity.
If you have keenly observed nature, you will realize that it is never in a hurry to do things. Each event in nature occurs precisely at the time it is meant to. No matter what the situation is, unlike us humans, it is never in a hurry. The sun rises and sets at the same time, a seed takes its own time to sprout, a flower blooms at its own pace and the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to butterfly cannot be rushed. No external pressure or deadline alters its pace. A flowing river never hurries. They just flow, rejoicing the journey.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. – Lao Tzu
Isn’t it such an important lesson for us to inculcate into our life? When nature can manage her vast empire at a relaxed pace, why can’t we? All we need to do is to slow down, breathe and connect o nature. It is important to enjoy the process of learning and growing, the process of “becoming” in that journey. The more space and time we give to us, the faster we will realize our dreams.
Life is too short to hurry and too long for heartache and worry – Bill Butler
It’s only the present moments that make life memorable. Every now and then it is important to rest, tune our goals and approach it with greater vigor. It is so important to get into the flow of things at a relaxed pace.
