What To Learn From Nature!
Yoga and Total Health|May 2021
Nature doesn’t give up, but we give up too easily. By observing nature, we can learn a lot.
Dr. Hansaji J. Yogendra

We can understand the role of work in Wour lives by observing Nature. Nature has a great work ethic. A small sapling/plant of the Peepal tree had grown in our building compound. We were warned that if allowed to grow bigger it would crack the wall and it should, therefore, be removed. And so we did. After a few months, we noticed that it was back again. We got rid of it once again by digging it out, putting acid on it, and then cementing the wall again. For about three years nothing happened. But after three years it grew again. Nature has great strength. Have you observed the ant? It does a lot of work. Notice how the spider keeps falling down but it keeps climbing up over and over again. It does not sit down and cry and complain about the efforts it has to put in. Nature does not stop working.

The question to then ask is, how do we humans stop working? Just because you did some work and you are not getting the right results, just because you did some work and somebody else spoilt that work, we get upset.
