Live Life: Get In Touch With Nature

In today’s over-competitive world, it becomes very easy for us to forget who we really are – a fragment of the all prevalent supreme consciousness. Our forefathers understood this fact deep down, and as such, they were a more relaxed lot. Even just one decade ago, people were not as materialistic as they are now, at least not in the part of the world where I come from!

These days, we see so many teenage bloggers trying to earn money through blogging! But just a few years back, school and college days were just meant for having fun. We never had to bother about earning money and stuff at that age! The thought never even crossed our mind, to be frank!

Good or bad, I don’t know, but the world definitely is changing. And in this mad rat race for money and material pleasures, we seem to be gradually forgetting the bigger picture.

One thing I do know though is that money can definitely buy us a lot of materialistic comforts and get us on a temporary high, but it can never lead to contentment. Because the real inner contentment doesn’t come from a big house or an expensive car; it comes from having lived a meaningful existence. And this meaning cannot be found in worldly pleasures.

I have found that keeping in touch with nature helps me appreciate my life more.


When I watch the sun rise in the morning, I feel like it has especially come out to greet me good morning!

Gazing at the darkness of the night helps me let go of all my worries and problems in that black abyss, knowing that the morning will bring a fresh start full of light.


And the stars make me aware of a Universe so vast… beyond my very limited perspective… beyond anything I have ever experienced… which leads me to believe that anything truly is possible in this world.

Looking at the flowers, and the different trees and plants, makes me feel grateful for this life… that I am able to witness this beautiful world.


The sound of waves and rushing water calms my own mind running crazy with thoughts!


See… even the thought of connecting with nature brings such a deep sense of satisfaction… that everything is exactly as it should be… that there’s no rush for anything… no rat race… for I am not a rat, I am a human being…

And now I’m off to spend some time looking at the black sky from my balcony...

See you all tomorrow same time!

By the way, I still haven't seen a real rat race happen in front of my own eyes...

Except the one we humans take part in which I see everyday and just about everywhere.

Why is it called a rat race anyways... ? :P

Good question Shobhit :-/

It sounds all very nice and politically correct.
Unless one is successful and rich(reasonably), one is not accepted in the society and that is a fact.

@ Mr. Chowla:
Nothing on this blog is "politically correct" in fact! I always write what I really feel. Regarding your comment, well, it just gave me the idea for a new post in this series, which I'll do tonight! Thanks :)
