My latest vacation in a national park(Yellowstone national park, Wyoming) made me think about this. I visited one of the famous national parks in US. And it was blissful week I spent with my family. But somewhere deep inside what struck most is how we are just tiny part of overall ecology rather than being the goal of this ecology. This national park sits over active volcano which has capacity to change geography of large region. It’s been in existence more than two billion years ago. Some rocks I saw have been as old as earth itself. So just that aspect made me humble towards those rocks. I wished so much that I could understand the language of rocks. So I could unearth so much about what has been before we all came here. Another major thing I saw there was, Earth can be forgiving and life giving. As well as it can be aggressive and unforgiving. Earth being melted to the limit of bubbling mud was something which makes you feel, how less we know of the world we live in. Then the beautiful natural wonder of natural Geysers. How can such a splendid show be not for us? It was hidden for thousands of years from mankind. I felt so jealous of creator's destiny. There has to be bigger showman than all of us, for whom this natural wondrous scenic beauty is meant for. And how powerful and omnipresent that showman would be to see the whole world on one stage and we all playing minor role in this play of billion years of length. We just get some screen time of 0.0000001 th part of play's length. Such a miniscule role in overall act. I think those rocks are far bigger substantial in that act than us. Still we spend our life acting as if we are the most important person on this earth. Such a naivety!! Roaring steam coming out of earth's chest was an eye opening phenomena. I am so much changed person after this visit. I feel so indebted to nature to at least entitle that small part in the act. It’s better than not having any part at all. It’s so good to run away from material world of money, career and ever changing complex life and just indulge in natural beauty. I felt this was real purpose of our life than be bogged down how to get to next milestone financially, professionally or socially. We humans are so bad at designing things that there are always stronger side effects than main fruit. We designed concept of money, and now look at how it drives so many of us to kill others, burn others or loot others. We also designed concept of relations, and look at how one's parents can take life of other's kids and what not. Somewhere we have gone wrong in learning things from nature. For flawless design, nature is best place to learn. Look at it; it even designs its forests for catastrophes like fire, drought and what not. I came to know about how forest replants itself after the fire has destroyed the whole forest. In large pole pinecone trees, there is male, female and neutral variety. Third variety comes in picture only when the fire has destroyed whole forest. It has a pinecone which is safely hidden in cover of wax. Even fire can’t destroy it. When fire is finished. This pinecone bursts due to melted wax and spread more than million seeds to replant whole forest. Amazing flawless design!!
