Lao Tzu has said that “Nature does not hurry, yet everything gets accomplished”. All we need to do is to look and observe, and act upon the lesson learnt from wildlife that is openly flaunted , accessible and waiting for us to tap at its source of wisdom.
Wildlife photography is an amazing past-time. We learn from all at we see around us, especially in the wild. Every creature in the wild was designed to serve a purpose. Humans, while advancing in leaps and bounds in development and technology, have yet some lesson to earn. We need to learn from the animals and birds their raison d’etre, for they are here to teach us their way of life.
There is a wealth of knowledge that is openly accessible in nature. Our ancestors knew this and embraced the natural course found in the bosom of the Earth. Their classroom was nature. They studied the lessons to be learned from animals, as much of human behavior can be explained by watching the wild beasts around us. They are constantly teaching us things about ourselves and the way of the universe but most people are too blind to watch and listen.
The Earth has an immense possibility and music for those who listen to the birds. From the early morning chirping and twittering throughout the day to the cacophony of sound at their return to the nests at dusk, there is music every where.Have you ever felt awkward and ugly? Imagine yourself as a caterpillar – slow and unlovable yet going on course while munching leaves till they reach the pupae stage. Then spread your wings and morph nymph-like into a beautiful, graceful butterfly loved and admired by all.
Birds have wings : they are free to fly where ever they want, whenever they want. They have the kind of mobility many people envy. Let your potential soar as a bird as you reach the heights you were destined to reach.
Lessons from the wild are worth pondering.
