We as humans are the most intelligent species on Earth. We’re rational, can use logic, can innovate new cutting edge technology & have superb problem solving abilities. It is said that we use just about 10% of our actual brain capacity & still we have reached the moon, explored the depths of oceans, have found out what is in the core of the Earth, invented I-Phones, laptops, wireless hi-speed internet connections & a lot more. Commendable achievements these are indeed.

There is something that is responsible for these great abilities that we posses. We all are aware of it but fail to realize.

However intelligent & intellectual humans are we are the creation of Mother Nature just like the rest of this world. Just like us even the other creations of Mother Nature are exemplary, for example
WATER, OXYGEN,TREES,CLOUDS,SOIL,SUN & even the other living beings who in some way or the other support the entire eco-system.

I would also like to bring to your attention another very sophisticated & important creation of nature that all of us possess & have with us 24X7. It’s our Skin! Have any of the scientists or researchers been able to develop or construct any material like our skin which has the ability to heal itself even on being cut, torn or hurt? I guess the answer is NO.

Every moment of our life we are using the various resources that we have received from Mother Nature & we get the most important ones for free. Yet we don’t care for them. Can you imagine being in a place where there is no oxygen even for 5mins? The thought itself is dreadful & again we all know it. The things that I am trying to say have been said millions of times but the actions taken for it are negligible.

We fail to realize that if the trees/plants, air & water diminish we will not start eating money instead of food & breathe on gadgets instead of fresh air! Don’t we feel bad & feel the pain if someone hurts us? Then if we cannot create what Mother Nature does, we ought to at least respect what we have got. We have no right to destroy, pollute & harm any of the splendid creations of Mother Earth.

We need to understand that we cannot just keep on impairing Nature & Environment in the manner that we are currently. There is a limit to everything that should be & shouldn’t be done. If either is crossed it can create problems for us. We have the example of TSUNAMIs where even the most powerful & most advanced countries too have failed to find a way to stop it. We humans might have explored,  experimented & invented loads of technologies but it all gets zeroed when nature reacts.

Rivers and rocks and trees have always been talking to us, but we’ve forgotten how to listen. I would like to conclude by saying – Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed. Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge.
