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.

Philosophy of Honesty


Honesty Is Our Natural Choice


The truth needs so little rehearsal.  ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

Honesty is a natural choice, its natural to be honest. We love to be honest and praise those who love honesty. Even today nothing has changed when it comes to natural human choice, we try to suppress this natural inclination by giving a number of justification to our own self and to those who ask us why?

Today when nature is distancing itself from us, we have a number of issues with nature such as global warming, protection from Sunshine (we have teared the Natural Protecting System called Ozone), endangered species, pollution in air, water and food. Along with these we have also polluted or natural thinking process, we no more believe in nature the way we used to, today we love (or pretend to love) artificial, processed, covered things, whether its new, views, water, food or even air.

We can’t drink untreated water as we fear pollutants, so is the case with other things including honesty. Today we feel that to be honest is like standing barely under the sunshine, we feel that its dangerous and may not be good for us. We don’t think that honesty is a natural tendency, a natural choice, we think its foolish, its childish to be honest in today’s world.

Philosophy of Honesty Our Natural Choice

 

No Honesty No Peace of Mind

 

We can’t think of a peaceful life, if we can’t appreciate honesty in everyday life. Our natural inclination towards honesty can’t tolerate dishonesty our own system starts malfunctioning if we are dishonest.

If we want peace then we must take this seriously, if we want health then we must think about effects of this aspect of life on our body and mind, we want happiness in life then we must try this rule of nature.

We can’t trick the nature with Dishonesty

Even if we have several reasons to satisfy our own logic we cannot trick the nature, our own human nature, nature of our body system, philosophy of our own mind and thinking. Logic is better suited for machines then men.

If we are dishonest in some of our dealing then its effect can be seen in a number of things that happen in our life, it can be mood swing, irritation or failures.

 

Honesty Is The Best Policy

 

Overall honesty is the best policy and this is a fact. This is the easiest and most convenient option that we can have. Its better to be honest and face the truth then to be dishonest, inviting a number of problems and at last confessing after a long period of unrest. Read more on why honesty is the best policy?

In order to appreciate honesty, we must learn this from our own experience, from our own trials in everyday life. Sooner we realize its benefits on our own the better it will be for life and life of this mankind on this planet.


Discover Philosophy of Honesty & Enjoy A Happy and Peaceful Life
May be most of us think ourselves to be honest, may be it is true from our own perspective but is it really true. There is one way to know whether its true or not, either we can delve deep in philosophy of honesty or we can take a simple test.



Honesty is a lifestyle of a winner, someone who is not afraid of truth and its consequences. He/she is not honest because its the best policy or because he is aware of its benefits but because its honesty, a single path which is the right path.


A person who is really honest always enjoys happiness, peace of mind, tranquility as he has nothing to process in his/her mind, there is nothing that can get uncovered. Whatever is there is there because it has to be there. He has neither added nor subtracted anything anywhere. This is a simple test (as per my knowledge/information/experience) which I feel can be used to reposition our own strategy on honesty.

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.
