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 that make it incredible if you are willing to view it that way. However, sadly enough, most people’s outlook on life is to take everything about them for granted or with despair.
What is your frame of mind? How do you live your life? Can you see it as a gorgeous opera? Or do you just pay attention to the pain?
Merely being alive is already insane. The odds are so stacked against you, and yet we often forget that simple but fantastic fact. Mother Nature and all living creatures on it are indeed miracles of life. But you must look at it that way because you will get what you focus on in the end of the day.
One is as though nothing is a miracle. You should appreciate how blessed 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 House
It is only a question of where you put your attention. And it does not matter if you focus on the bad things or the good ones, they all become real. Your thoughts and focus quickly overwhelm you. So, you must shift away from seeing the pain in the opera of existence. And instead, see the miracle 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 every grain of sand is made of unexpected beauty when you look carefully enough. And every snowflake which falls from the skies to coat the Earth is unique.
Consequently, you then realize that life is a game of attention. 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 provides all things in abundance, in addition to maintaining the world we live in. Yet, most people abuse these marvels.
The Source of All Living Creatures
So, we should take good care of our world and the species existing on it. Physical life and survival of all living creatures, in addition to nature, are the origin to preserve. Since the ground is our resource, I believe we have to 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 can even be healing yourself with the energy 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 each living being.
– Albert Einstein
Nature and its Hidden Miracles
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 house, so it is 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. Did you ever notice this? Now, just imagine how many miracles are included within an whole beach. You might suddenly look at all things around you with another eye.
If it snows, billions and billions of snowflakes are falling, yet not two snowflakes are exactly the same. Unbelievably, they have six sides, like your fingerprint. Even by the miraculous standards of the organic 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 is one simple creature which should be the most remarkable of all: you. Humans have genuinely impressive abilities, and however, they are so careless about the miracles of nature. Often, they have no respect for the living beings that are around them.
And you’re only a portion of a whole, called the Universe. Human beings are a grain in time and space. But you have experiences, ideas, and feelings, but it should not be a sort of prison, restricting you to your desires and affection for a number of people close to you.
But you’re more sophisticated, more intelligent, and more fabulous 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 us take a recent study that shows a little bird called 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).
So, it means that if you scale it up to the size of an average car, the bird is going at 1,300 kilometers or 2,092 kilometers per hour. It’s nearly twice the speed of sound. The Space Shuttle at its fastest reaches 207 body lengths per second; however when it’s diving, Anna’s hummingbird tops it by 383 body lengths per second.
All in all, this little fellow must rank as one of the most incredible living creatures on the planet. But, in actuality, there are many more wonders of the animal kingdom whose physical capacities are simply beyond belief. Some, indeed, defy the laws of physics, and therefore of character itself.
Miracles of Nature Everywhere
You can see these kinds of miracles of nature in even the most simple creatures. In the deepest of our oceans, there are persuasive pressures. It is sufficient to crush every bone and organ in your body, yet there reside all kinds of creatures.
Then, at the other end, high above the Himalayan Mountains, you experience migrating birds. It is the bar-headed geese, happily flying at the same height as a jumbo jet. Animals are far smarter than we give them credit for, and thus, all living creatures are miracles of nature.
And you might think it is impossible for a baby bird that has done nothing in its brief life but sits in a nest and eats caterpillars to take flight. After its parents leave him, he awakens from, let us say, England to southern Africa. And so, makes it on the Channel and the Strait of Gibraltar; over the Sahara.
All Things are Wonders
It is also unique once you look up, see and feel a lot of raindrops falling from the sky. Yet, Earth is not the only world 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 animals as wonders, is worth living. We, as intelligent species, should appreciate Mother Nature far more than we do now. Choose very wisely how to understand your life and what is around you because it literally becomes a summary of what you focus on.
