Learning Meaning of Life from Nature

Natural Law of Nature Prevails Everywhere

Nature holds answers to a number of our questions, it even provides answer to our query what is the meaning of life.

We do not need the help of any book or tutorial or anyone else as they will only deviate our attention from the real answer/solution, which is lying before. Most theories and concepts will not help right now to understand life and its meaning, we have to conceive this our self directly from the nature, our surrounding, present and past, once we have developed our own convincing view we can extend this knowledge, refine it further with additional material, other sources.

We can start looking at nature’s reply to this question anywhere, anytime as nature pervades every thing, it exists every where. Even when we try to keep nature at bay with our so called intelligent artificial creations, nature presents itself in the most suitable form for that environment.

You must have noticed bed bugs, termite, cockroaches etc. in modern scientifically designed apartments, which are designed by keeping comfort in mind, easing life, eliminating common problems that are usually found in a resident. Yet, even after taking all the precautionary measures, we find that they can only stop nature from implementing its laws for some time, they do not have a permanent solution and even if they law of nature will reappear there in another form.

We may try hard to wipe out law of nature, take services from the experts in these fields but none of them can provide a life time solution, they only have a temporary solution which has to be applied again and again after some time. It is very difficult if not impossible to isolate nature and its natural processes.

Learning Meaning of Life from Plants

We can try to understand meaning of life from plants around us. We can start watching any plant, a shrub or even tree, try to find a purpose/meaning of its life, what are its requirements, how does it react to problems, what are its basic necessities, is it happy with what it has, satisfied with its present circumstances.

We’ll notice that plants actually live a life, they enjoy there survival with the nature. They are healthy, fit for performing there every task that is expected from them with whatever resources they have, in prevailing circumstances and conditions.

There greenery, beauty is an indication of there health, well being, happiness. They do what they ought to do, perform there every duty and later give way for others to survive.

What is the meaning of life for them?

In one word we can say it is to protect and preserve nature and life, help nature to help life, it takes from and gives to the nature, makes it possible for others to survive naturally, without any artificial support, produces more of its own kind to make it possible that at least some of its species carry on this task of nature in future.

This is all that is meant to be achieved and is actually achieved in there life cycle. Just like human beings these plants too show reaction when they are treated harshly, there is a question of there survival, when they are unable to fulfill there basic need required to perform there tasks or duties. In such condition we can notice some uncommon/unnatural behavior.

Imitating Characteristics of Nature to Stay Focused in Life

Learning Meaning of Life from Plants and NatureAs a human being we too try to imitate the characteristics of nature, using other means some of which are natural and thus helpful while others are artificial and thus harmful. Some people move towards spirituality, they take some time to meditate, which helps one to concentrate on there main task, helps to close mind to unwanted distractions, helps to focus on natural goals of life and thus helps in enjoying happiness in current circumstances.

Some people who look for a quick fix start using unnatural means like drinking, entertaining themselves using modern ways which do not help to stay focused or calm in reality, they only help one to occupy his brain with something else which looks soothing at that moment, but when its effects are gone, a person returns back, the situation reappears in its original form.

Mysteries of Life and Nature

Life is a mystery and nature is mysterious. The more we try to solve this mystery, more entangled this mystery becomes. One way to live with this mystery is to take a middle path i.e., although you known a subject well still you don’t known it that well.

This mystery has always been there for those who try to master (experiment with, try to explore more) a science or an art that exists in this nature in any form, as after a certain point of exploring truth one comes across evidence that point to mystery, something which isn’t in line with the fact that helped to reach this point of exploration.

Mysteries of Nature Supports Life

Mystery of nature isn’t bad for the nature or life on this planet or the universe. A life which is lead as per the normal natural route isn’t mysterious at all. All the things are well established and commonly known to everyone. Only when one tries to cross the barriers of natural limits one faces these mysteries of nature.

When we break one law of nature , we immediately find our-self in the jurisdiction of another law of nature, nature exists even beyond human imaginations, its a mystery because it exists there, at such places, places which do not exist for us, aren’t mentioned even in our fiction, our imagination, our dream and when we find/reach such places we find nature with its laws already existing there.

In terms of software programmers its like error handling, code that exists to handle exceptions and any software which fails to incorporate enough exception handling routines are said to be poor, unrefined, beta.

Mystery of nature is a mystery itself. Even nature whether its mysterious or not is always supportive of a common cause. All the mysterious acts of nature have a humane face.

Mysteries of Nature ultimately help the survival, welfare of the universe. These mysteries has provided a number of social traits, common understandings, rituals, culture which suit the environment and nature of the place. The best thing of nature’s mysterious nature is that nature itself follows its natural law and respects it.

Men today has been developing things some of which aren’t in connotation with the nature’s ways, these developments may look good today but the fact that they don’t follow a natural philosophy is an invitation to mysterious response from nature. These mysteries are problems with no clear cut solution.

Are you ready to take test of nature, even a little questionnaire of nature is puzzling our brains, look around and see what this can mean to us, our civilization.  Its all a part of Mysteries of Life and Nature, that we are just beginning to realize, that they do exist.

Maintaining Natural Health Unnaturally

Today health is a major concern in personal well-being. Whether we are student, professional, sportsman or any other human being, we are somewhere concerned about our health and state of our body.

More or less this health phobia is a part of a marketing gimmick. There are a number of products that we use in our everyday life that play with your health, and then there are some other products in market to restore this health swing. We are so much influenced by these marketing strategies that today we have actually forgot what health and healthy body stands for.

Health is no more a state of mind or body instead it is now look and feel of our body more to others than to our self. They tell us if our hair looks like this we should use this. If we feel tired after work take this. Although all of us know that it is natural to feel tired after hard work. But our suspicion that may be others don’t feel this tiredness the way we are feeling makes us a soft target.

Today we see a whole plethora of products to help our move against the nature. We haven’t left anything to nature, even so called natural food products get there natural look and feel using some artificial or man made method. That is today nature and natural aren’t beyond the shadow of doubt. Man has actually interfered in almost every path of nature’s natural process of doing things.

Natural health and fitness too arent’ beyond this shadow of doubt. If we look healthy and fit then this can be easily attributed to a number of artificial products and methods. An unhealthy state of body and mind is therefore a consequence of not using these so called useful products. Every problem today whether its related to health or great looks has a very simple solution available in market. So, don’t raise a question because may be you aren’t financially sound to take the answer.

All these health related problems and there solutions are man made. Actually we are no more interested in natural health or natural food and even if we are then our current situation or environment don’t permit us to do so.

Maintaining natural health and fitness isn’t a major issue and can be achieved by most of us if we take care of a few things right from the childhood like-

1. Eating meals at specified time.

2. Sticking strictly to three meals a day.

3. Waking up early.

4. Eating only when we are hungry.

5. Exercising regularly.

6. Viewing television in limit.

7. Using computers only for work and for fun to a certain limit.

8. Enjoying life with what we have.

If we’ll help nature in its natural process it will definitely help us to lead a more happy and peaceful life because Every Action Has An Equal & Opposite Reaction.

Health and fitness are actually an attribute of happy and peaceful life, if we are enjoying this happiness naturally then there is no need to ruin this peace with some clutter. There are also some natural food products like Ganoderma Lucidum which are know to induce health since long time. We should use any of these products only when we really need them or our current situation or nature of job doesn’t permit us to lead a natural life style.

Philosophy of Health

Our body is itself a fully functional automatic machine, it is more powerful then anything designed by a human being, still we don’t want to realize it. Most of the modern health problems, disease and illness that are visible everywhere around us are not an indication of a problem with our body system or its malfunctioning, it is only an indication of our own negligence and inability to feed our body and mind with what it naturally asks for.

Today we are more interested in looking for products which have scientifically proven nutritive elements, is processed in a healthy, state of the art conditions, is much more better then what nature can produce. It seems as if man knows more then nature, it can do better then nature. We have developed our own philosophy of health, we are overconfident with our little achievements.

One must understand nature is infinite, its resources are infinite, it doesn’t works on a short term goal (for whatever reason), it has nothing to do with name and fame. In spite of all the scientific discoveries man still need air, water and food to live, till date we cannot transfer a life which exists physically to a chip.

Although our endeavor in the world of robotics where humanoids are a reality today, we are slowly moving towards the age where we’ll slowly start to realize that our body is actually not required any more and it is better to invent something which can help us to move this life to a chip or something which doesn’t have to worry about physical wear and tears. (maybe someday I’ll post this in further details, to spill more of what I think of it and is in my mind).
