As soon as you look all around you, you realize that all living creatures are miracles of nature. Our world is full of 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 everything about them for granted or with grief.
What is your frame of mind? How do you live your life? Can you see it as a beautiful opera? Or do you just focus on the pain?
Merely being alive is already insane. The odds are so stacked against you, and yet we often overlook that simple but fantastic fact. Mother Nature and all living creatures on it are really miracles of life. However, you must look at it that way because you’ll get what you concentrate on in the end of the day.
One is as though nothing is a miracle. You should appreciate how lucky you are to be alive. And give thanks for your ability to be able to witness all of the beauty that the character of the planet provides.
Earth is our Home
It’s only a question of where you put your attention. And it does not matter if you concentrate on the bad things or the great ones, all of them become real. Your thoughts and attention quickly overwhelm you. So, you have to shift away from seeing the pain in the opera of life. And see the wonder in it all.
Your task is to free yourself from that masque by widening your circle of compassion and wonder. You have to embrace all living creatures and examine the splendor from the wonders of nature. Realize that each and every grain of sand is made from unexpected beauty when you look closely enough. And each snowflake which falls from the skies to coat the Earth is unique.
Consequently, you then realize that life is a game of focus. But let us take a look at some of the absolute wonders which are carried by nature and all living animals living in it. Earth is our home. It gives life and supplies everything in abundance, as well as maintaining the world we live in. Yet, most humans abuse these marvels.
The Source of All Living Creatures
Thus, we should take good care of our world and the species present on it. Physical life and survival of all living animals, in addition to 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 must adhere to the wisdom of nature.
Since centuries, nature delivers natural medicines that are still available today. We, humans, are still learning things beyond the realm of belief. You may even be healing yourself with the power of your mind. Who does not know about the Placebo effect? You and I can’t often understand the huge resources of this natural energy which lives in each living being.
“There are only two ways to live your life: as though nothing is a miracle, or as though everything is a miracle.”
As nature is so amazing, you have to learn to enjoy and appreciate its miracles. And yes, it is a resource we must exploit some of it to provide our needs but only to some degree. Let’s 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, representing the biology and geology in which they are found. Now, just imagine how many miracles are contained within an whole beach. You might suddenly look at all things around you with a different eye.
Unbelievably, they have six sides, similar to your fingerprint. Even by the miraculous criteria of the organic world, it is an accomplishment almost beyond imagining. So, nature and all living creatures in it are miracles of life.
Regardless of the extraordinary competition, there’s one simple creature that should be the most remarkable of all: you. Humans have genuinely impressive abilities, 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 are only a part of a whole, called the Universe. Human beings are a grain in time and space. But you have experiences, ideas, and feelings, but it shouldn’t be a sort of prison, restricting you to your desires and affection for a number of folks close to you.
But you are more sophisticated, more intelligent, and more marvelous than any human-made invention. We take such things for granted. However, we can learn so much from nature or the unconditional love of the living creatures around us.
All Living Creatures are Miracles
Let’s have a recent study that shows a little bird known as Anna’s hummingbird that can dive through the air at speeds of about 50 miles or 80 mph. So what? Well, this bird is only five inches long (12 centimeters).
Therefore, it means that if you scale it up to the size of an average automobile, the bird is moving at 1,300 miles or 2,092 km per hour. It’s nearly twice the speed of sound. The Space Shuttle at its fastest reaches 207 body lengths per second; but when it is diving, Anna’s hummingbird tops it by 383 body lengths per second.
In general, this little fellow must rank as one of the most amazing living creatures on the planet. But, in fact, there are a lot more wonders of the animal kingdom whose physical capacities are simply beyond belief. Some, indeed, defy the laws of physics, and consequently of character itself.
Miracles of Nature Everywhere
You can see such miracles of nature in even the most simple creatures. In the deepest of our oceans, there are compelling pressures. It’s enough to crush every organ and bone in your body, yet there reside all kinds of creatures.
Then, at the other end, high over the Himalayan Mountains, you experience 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 is impossible for a baby bird that has done nothing in its short life but stays in a nest and eats caterpillars to take flight. After its parents leave him, he flies from, let us say, England to southern Africa.
Additionally it is unique when you look up, see and feel so many raindrops falling from the sky. Yet, Earth is not the only planet that experiences rain. 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 now. Choose very wisely how to see your life and what is around you because it literally becomes a summary of what you focus on.
