‘looking at images of life – on micro and macro levels

24 04 2012

how do i begin this subject matter?

let’s take a look at this image… deep within a forest. so natural, so beautiful and prestine, offering a cool and calming sensation to a weary mind…

allow me to take this as an example of a ‘macro level’ image of life.

the next image, a seed germinating represents ‘micro-level’ image of life in any forest. so tender and fragile.

as i like to view it, a forest generally speaking were composition of complex macro/micro-scosm of various levels of life.

from the flora and fauna even down to the more microscopic organisms like fungus and bacteria.

the forest….., on how they came about, were such a wonderful composition, truly a masterfully crafted work of art. Our God’s gift to us, mankind.

so what’s the point?

if you’re reading this, i am thankful for allowing me to go further …

this morning after awakening and preparing for breakfast, sudden rush of insights flowed freely i had to pause for a while. it was like looking through a telescope and a microscope simultaneously. flashes of images and intuitions swelled up deep within the senses.

these kind of events, as i learned from the past experiences and readings, are the pure sources of spark that will ignite flames of enlightenment and understanding about teh way of life itself… i must write about it and share unto you.

while contemplating for further explanation, i browsed a blog-link and thereabout found similar flow of thoughts… sounds weird huh?

let’s dig in…

A Natural Order of Things

Here comes the spacy part. I believe that everything around us complies to the natural order of things – even the inanimate objects. The planets keep their orbit around their sun, solar systems spiral within their galaxy, we see a cyclical procession of the seasons, electrons orbit neutrons and protons, etc. From the biggest out there (galaxies in our universe) to the infinitesimally small (particles at the quantum level), there is a governing natural law to which we all comply with. Stay with me…I have a point here. I maintain that that same law acts upon all of us to flow a certain way, to make things happen a certain way. We don’t see this because we are creatures of control. We over-ride this law (free will?). We want to control ourselves and we want to control our environment. … thelonerider

‘there’s a time for everything …

Ecclesiastes III

3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

9 What profit is there to the worker from that in which he toils?  10 I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves. 11 He has made everything appropriate in its time.  He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good in one’s lifetime; 13 moreover, that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor, it is the gift of God.  14 I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should fear Him.  15 That which is has been already, and that which will be has already been, for God seeks what has passed by.”

Applicable Life’s Lessons:

1.0 On Natural Farming. There’s a right time for sowing and harvesting. Rice are best planted at the start of rainy season. Flowers start blooming after spring time. Fruits get harvested before fall drops the leaves. Life cycle follows their own proper time.

2.0 On Stock Trading. For the last five years i had been involved in trading the stock market… i had learned that it was difficult and very stressful to watch the market everyday. How can i avoid that?

I’ll digest and absorb into my system the wisdom of the verses from the scripture.

There’s a time for everything”…. “a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted”

Just like Natural Farming, from here onwards I will focus more on finding the fertile land to sow my seeds.

Once found, will wait for the right time to sow, nurture the seedlings upon sprouting, watch out for signs of growth failure and once established, will just tender plants from time to time and sit tight while waiting for the harvest season.

Very simple indeed if followed straigth to the heart and mind.

Life is indeed simple, must avoid stressful complications.
