Since the dawn of history, humanity has been fascinated by three energies — nature, soul and God.
The investigation or experimentation of these three eternal entities has often fallen into the individual domain of different experts, each working within their own boundary and perspective and each reaching out to their own conclusion. With different theories leading to the building of different factions and an ever-increasing lack of understanding of the whole, it has been observed that advancement or progress in one area has almost always been at the expense of another.
Laws that seem valid in the realms of matter have no jurisdiction when applied to the soul and vice versa. Thus societies that have achieved materialistic or technological advancement have usually sold their soul to do so, whereas fatalism, or a denial of the reality of matter, has left some communities bereft of the physical wherewithal for a dignified life. But if the puzzle of life has any solution, and if our existence has any meaning or purpose, then its foundation must be based on truth. If we are to recognise truth when we see it then two of the qualities that may transcend the disguise that it sometimes seems to hide behind, are its simplicity and universal applicability. An understanding of these natural laws, or the truth as a whole from which they derive their authority, should, therefore, enable us to understand this partnership between human beings and nature.
Around the world, nature is reverently referred to as Mother Nature and her very first act of service is to provide the soul with a body. Our relationship with nature starts with our bodies and every action that we perform affects the physical matter that our bodies are made of. Therefore, every human action inevitably has an effect on the matter, and secondly, no one is immune to the effects and consequences of his or her actions. The law of nature is a pattern of ceaseless motion and change in which every natural process is irreversible and leads towards a state of decay or disorder, although as a Mother, nature’s tendency is to try to restore balance and minimise pollution and disorder. The fact that the environment is polluted and abused today is because we have forgotten that we are intimately connected to nature, as is any baby to its mother. Arrogantly treating her as an object for reckless exploitation in the name of our perceived, but often only imaginary needs, as well as desecrating the original beauty of our planet, we have fouled and blocked our life-giving umbilical cord. Hence, as humans, we must accept the responsibility for our ill behaviour towards mother nature & change our way of thinking as well as our way of life for the common good of all. This would be the first and fundamental step to a genuine partnership between humans and nature.
We must put hard efforts to develop new insights and inspiration on how to protect our home by developing a deep understanding that by destroying the environment, we are destroying ourselves. We should very well understand a fact that any kind of partnership is not a one-way street, hence we must not depend on mother nature to always protect us all the time. We must stop the insanity of environmental abuse and replace this with environmental integrity, otherwise, we will face the consequences together as the human race. So, let us be sensible enough and invest our resources in a sustainable way, for, after all, we all share one earth, sky and sea, and the law of inter-dependence says that investment in one simple part will help to sustain the whole. So let’s make a sound investment of conserving nature for the sake of our future generations
