I lay on my bed staring out of the window, not being able to sleep even a wink. Suddenly, I noticed a peculiar shape in the sky. Thinking it was a trick my temporarily insomniac mind was playing on me, I glanced at the clock which read 2:57. I woke myself up properly (Believe me when I say Thumbs Up wakes you up in wondrous ways) anyway the shape that woke me up was the shape formed by the stars to imitate the impish grin of a super happy child. Suddenly I knew why and what it was. Let me tell you.
Have we ever regarded nature as an omnipresent force that is very much alive within this universe and in fact among us too? Why is it that when we see the perfect view of a pretty horizon where the crispy blue sky merges with the orange-red hued tint of the sun rising or setting and forming perfection? Why a scenic view of lush green hills with crystal clear waterfalls tumbling down with force affects us so much?
Sorry to sound poetic but the truth is even though only a few of us truly appreciate nature’s gifts, in reality all of us do. Why does a dull, cloudy weather affect us so negatively? Why does the splatter of raindrops on the lush green grass bubble out the hidden enthusiasm in us? The answer to all this simple: our indirect, subtle yet powerful appreciation and love for nature or for anything natural.
People claim to be healed by revelling in their daily nature walks along promenades or parks in the wistful joy of nature. I personally feel inspired to write when I sit near the sea on a crystal clear day with perfect weather but on the other hand I get intolerable migraines when the weather is the gray shade between sunny, cloudy and gray itself. Although this is just a personal perspective, but respecting everyone’s individualism has taught me that there is a great possibility that many of you have had similar experiences, similar enthusiasm and a similar sense of euphoria I experienced. As, I end this article, I ponder over the fact that what made me write about such stuff at 3 in the night? Was it me or that omnipresent force?
