LIFE LESSONS : 1. STUDY THE FACE OF NATURE


Study the face of nature and you will never be bored.

                                               - Ruskin Bond

We easily get bored with objects and people if the indulgence exceeds a threshold limit. But the same is not with Nature. It gives novelty at every moment. In the din of the daily grind, creativity is lost somewhere in the majority of our lives. How to get back in the midst of comparison mania?

Wisdom masters often advise that you must spend quality time with Nature daily. It stirs you into creativity. A day spent in the lush green patch would give more joy than you spend a day in a Five Star restaurant. Why because, the outdoors open your own doors of creativity.

Rabindranath Tagore used to spend much time in the garden due to which great writings happened with him. The eminent philosopher of 20th century Jiddu Krishnamurti says that intelligence implies that you see the beauty of the earth, the beauty of the tree, the beauty of the skies, the lovely sunset, the stars, the beauty of subtlety.
These days whenever, I feel bored, I take recourse in the nearby garden where I come back fully recharged. The great Indian Writer Khushwant Singh used to spend quality time in the park near to his home. In his much acclaimed book : "Khushwantnama - The Lessons of My Life' he says that "My Nature watching has been mostly restricted to t he back garden of my house in Sujan Singh Park, but how much that little garden has taught me !"

When you watch a sunrise or sunset or moon rise, your heart expands with exuberance. Great thoughts come to the minds of writers. For me, sometimes, a simple thought blossoms into a beautiful prose.

Our body is made up of Primordial Elements and that's why our connection with Nature is eternal. So make it a habit of immersing with Nature and you bounce back with creativity!
