Basically, we all are a part of nature but we hardly realize it. We
differentiate ourselves from nature and call ourselves the highest and
most civilized living beings on earth. We forget that nature provides so
much abundantly and generously and in return we heartlessly destroy and
deplete all the wealth that she bestows us. Nature also teaches us the
morals and values that we must possess so as to lead a peaceful life and
we do not perceive them nor do we understand them.
they are independent. They do their own task with all their might. Even
though they are tiny little beings with no sixth sense, they know how to
live without depending on anybody. They migrate from one continent to
another without the help of any external device but by just believing in
their instincts. They knit and build their own beautiful nests using
small twigs and sticks by carrying them with their tiny beaks over long
distances, one by one and take care of their young ones all at once.
They fly high in the sky with all pride and happiness of being
independent and living a free life full of self confidence and dignity.
Wait and Endure the Pressure, You Will Shine
precious diamond. Can anyone believe that such an shiny, transparent,
precious thing comes from pure trash? Just the very high pressures that
those leaves and other forest trash endure for many thousands of years,
turn them into such amazing things! Even trash can be converted into
invaluable gems just with the help of time and by undergoing some
rigorous treatment. The same applies to us. Never break down, face
whatever life gives you, be bold enough and you will shine like a
diamond, sooner perhaps than later!
Know your Depths but Don’t Show Off
deep they are unless you step into them. You never know how far they go,
they are just vast and wide. They never show off nor do they brag about
their vastness and their huge depths. They are quite simple and poised.
They help huge ships to traverse through them and connect different
countries as well as protect different continents as well. They never
show their fiery nature unless they are disturbed, unnecessarily,
through storms, hurricanes, tsunamis etc.

talented, stay quiet, you need not advertise. You can help people with
your knowledge and talent instead. Do not show what you actually are,
unless you are being disturbed out of your wit. Stay calm and enjoy the
Wherever You Are, Just Be “You”
But they always seem fresh and fragrant despite all the dirt around
them. Nothing can contaminate the vibrant beauty and the fragrance of a
water lily. You can also shine and be good wherever you go and whatever
be the environment you are in. Nothing can spoil your charm or your
talents and wit if you are strong and stable with your own qualities and
character. So, wherever you are, do not get perturbed by those
unnecessary distractions and dirt. Just Be “You.”
Be Punctual, Do Your Duty without Fail
What if the sun feels too lazy and takes rest for sometime instead of
rising early in the morning and comes to the east at 8.00 pm?
survive without the warmth provided by it. The plants will die due to
lack of sunlight for photosynthesis, as a result we will not get food.
Flowers won’t bloom either and the animals will suffer, water will not
evaporate, and there won’t be rain. There will not be any climatic or
weather changes. The earth will become dormant and life will not exist
anymore on the planet!
Be Generous and Never Expect Anything in Return
under the hot sun, cool breeze, purify the air and gives fresh oxygen to
breathe. They give you flowers, fill your stomach with those delicious
fruits and vegetables and help you get rid of hunger and starvation.
They hold the soil firmly with those strong roots, prevent soil erosion
and maintain good ground water level. In some trees even the bark and
leaves are of great medicinal value. They share all they have got with
every living being with no expectations.
nothing but deforestation, dry lands, global warming etc. Don’t you
think it is time to rethink and act with gratitude?
Be Active, Orderly, Hardworking
taking rest? They are always busy, walking, running, marching in a
particular order. If they find sugar somewhere, you can see a very long
train of ants marching tirelessly, carrying those crystals above their
head! They never go astray from that particular track. However huge
their food particle is, they never lose their confidence, they even join
hands with two or three other ants and carry them to their destination!
Well, that’s called “Team Work.”
it looks like they talk to each other and walk even though they have a
very busy schedule!!
remain intact and follow an order and spend time with their fellow
members! Isn’t this something we all should follow in our life too??
No Matter How Hard Your Path Is, Just Keep Going
confidence in ourselves, feel hurt and disheartened and sometimes leave
the path that we always wanted to take, in our life. But most of the
time, you are not that far from reaching your goal, but you had to
simply quit because of the fear of some impending doom or just because
you are way too tired.

goes through all the dirt on the way and still endures it all in order
to finally reach her ultimate home – The Sea. But in the process she
become clean, crystal clear, serving all the other living creatures,
quenching their thirst, creating fertile lands, irrigating fields
without taking rest anywhere in the middle!
Share your Joy, It Gets doubled!
The best example is a crow! Even if they find a small piece of food,
they call all their friends, share it with them and only then they eat
it. They even carry their food in their beaks to feed their young ones.
They are never too greedy nor are they too jealous. They share happily
with all the other fellow beings and eat and feed even more happily.
Live as if there is no tomorrow
more! That is their total life span! But if you see them, they will be
so happy and merrily dance around with the other beings of their
species, play, enjoy, eat joyously, love and literally live for the day
till the moment they die!
if really wish to “live.” Live your life as if there is no tomorrow.
Love with all your heart, work with all your passion, smile without any
worries. Live and let live!
Hope you have learnt your most important lesson from nature now. Be
punctual and do your duty. If you expect others to be perfect, you too
should try to do your part perfectly!
