As soon as you look all around you, you realize that all living creatures are miracles of nature. Our world is filled with real wonders which make it incredible if you’re willing to see it that way. However, sadly enough, most people’s outlook on life is to take all around them for granted or with grief.
What’s your frame of mind? How do you live your life? Can you see it as a beautiful opera? Or do you just pay attention to the pain?
Merely being alive is already insane. The odds are so stacked against you, and we often forget that simple but fantastic fact. Mother Nature and all living creatures on it are really miracles of life. But you must look at it that way because you’ll get what you concentrate on in the end of the day.
You should appreciate how blessed you are to be living. And give thanks for your ability to be able to witness all the beauty that the nature of the planet provides.
Earth is our House
It’s only a question of where you place your attention. And it doesn’t matter if you focus on the bad things or the good ones, all of them become real. Your ideas and attention quickly overwhelm you. So, you have to shift away from seeing the pain in the opera of life. And instead, see the wonder in it all.
Your job is to free yourself from this masque by widening your circle of compassion and wonder. You have to embrace all living creatures and examine the splendor in the wonders of nature. Realize that each and every grain of sand is made from unexpected beauty when you look closely enough. And every snowflake which falls from the skies to coat the Earth is unique.
As a result, you then realize that life is a game of focus. But let’s take a look at some of the absolute miracles that are carried by nature and all living animals living in it. Earth is our home. It gives life and provides everything in abundance, as well as maintaining the world we live in. Yet, most humans abuse these marvels.
The Source of All Living Creatures
So, we should take good care of our planet and the species existing on it. Physical life and survival of all living creatures, as well as nature, are the source to preserve. Since the earth is our resource, I think we must pay more attention to the wonders of life. We have to follow the wisdom of nature.
Since centuries, nature delivers natural medicines which are still available now. You may even be healing yourself with the power of your mind. Who doesn’t know about the Placebo effect? You and I can’t often understand the vast resources of this natural energy that lives in every living being.
As nature is so amazing, you must learn to enjoy and appreciate its miracles. And yes, it’s a resource we must exploit some of it to supply our requirements but only to some degree. Let us remember that it gives us a home, so it’s time to end the abuse. They are yet hidden treasures to be discovered.
The picture below shows how grains of sand look like under a microscope, reflecting the biology and geology where they’re found. Did you ever notice this? Now, just imagine how many miracles are included on an entire beach. You may suddenly look at all things around you with a different eye.
Unbelievably, they have six sides, like your own fingerprint. Even by the miraculous standards of the natural world, it’s an accomplishment almost beyond imagining. So, all living creatures in it are wonders of life.
Respect for All Living Creatures
Regardless of the extraordinary competition, there’s one simple creature which should be the most remarkable of all: you. Humans have genuinely impressive skills, and however, they are so careless about the wonders of nature. Frequently, they have no regard for the living beings which are around them.
And you’re only a portion of a whole, called the Universe. Human beings are a grain in time and space. However, you have experiences, ideas, and feelings, but it shouldn’t be a kind of prison, restricting you to your desires and affection for some folks close to you.
But you are more sophisticated, more intelligent, and more marvelous than any human-made invention. However, we can learn so much from nature or the unconditional love of the living creatures around us.
Let us have a recent study which shows a small bird called Anna’s hummingbird that can dive through the air at speeds of around 50 miles or 80 mph. So what?
So, it means that if you scale it up to the size of an ordinary car, the bird is going at 1,300 kilometers or 2,092 kilometers per hour. It is nearly twice the speed of sound. The Space Shuttle during its fastest reaches 207 body lengths per second; but when it’s diving, Anna’s hummingbird tops it by 383 body lengths per second.
In general, this little fellow must rank as one of the most incredible living creatures on the planet. But, in actuality, there are many more miracles of the animal kingdom whose physical capacities are simply beyond belief. Some, indeed, defy the laws of physics, and consequently of nature itself.
Miracles of Nature Everywhere
You can see such wonders of nature in even the very simple creatures. In the very deepest of our oceans, there are compelling pressures. It is enough to crush every organ and bone in your body, yet there reside all types of creatures.
Then, at the other end, high above the Himalayan Mountains, you encounter migrating birds. It is the bar-headed geese, happily flying at almost the same height as a jumbo jet. Animals are way smarter than we give them credit for, and so, all living creatures are miracles of nature.
And you might think it’s not possible for a baby bird that has done nothing in its brief life but stays in a nest and eats caterpillars to take flight. After its parents leave him, he awakens from, let us say, England to southern Africa.
It is also unique when you look up, see and feel a lot of raindrops falling from the sky. Yet, Earth isn’t the only planet that experiences rain. Venus’ showers sulfuric acid. And scientists now suspect that on Jupiter, it rains diamonds.
So, only a life lived in respecting all living creatures as miracles, is worth living. We, as intelligent species, should appreciate Mother Nature far more than we do currently. So, all things in our world stand as amazing wonders. Choose very wisely how to see your life and what’s around you because it literally becomes a summary of what you focus on.
