One of my friend shared with me that she loved nature truly and plan to live with nature after her retirement. I am happy to hear about her plan, however, I just asked a few questions, “Have you actually get in-touch with nature closely?” “Have you ever spend time in forest?” “Can you get along with all beings?” “Love and accept whatever form they are?” ” Do you love gardening?”
After I posted all this questions, she kept silence for a while and said, ” You are right. I never get closely with nature, I am still very much fearful to cockroaches and other little beings. I need to learn to treat and love them same as myself. Perhaps I need to spend more time with nature before I make any conclusion.”
Sometimes, we might assume whatever we want based on our imagination. It might be our dream list and in reality, this is not what we want. Experience it before jump to conclusion.
It’s apply the same when you are following your path, don’t jump straight when others mention their path is much better than yours. Experience it, see whether it bring benefit to you and your surrounding. Are you and your surrounding become more peace, calm and happy?
