Nature is a place of great secrets. These are secrets until we unlock them. Surprisingly every time we unlock one , we end up with many more secrets inside. To unlock such secrets we need be able to find the link between various things. To me everything in the universe is linked in one form or other. This blog post is about various links that I see and I feel worth to be looked upon.
The air we breath is produced by trees. Why would I totally depend on something created by trees. Could there be a link between oxygen creators and oxygen absorbents ? There are many different types air molecules , but why only oxygen ,produced by trees ,is our dying need. Is it that there was large amount of oxygen prior to animals on this earth , and we could survive only if oxygen’s abundance is reduced ? Have we evolved ourselves to breath oxygen in a way to maintain some kind of balance in nature with trees.The molecule created via photosynthesis inside a leaf becomes a necessary element in chemical reaction inside human body to release energy from sugar molecules. I would call this as Energy Link.
Human senses are capable of detecting only those changes which takes more than 0.1 second. e.g. if you are given an needle injection shot in less than 0.1 second, then you wont know if it was given at all. We can say that processing speed factor of senses is 0.1 second. Earth takes 86400 seconds to rotate around itself to cause day and night. Because it is much much larger than 0.1 second (~10^6 times) we can detect the presence of day and night. If Day and night would have been faster than 0.1 second , we could never have been able to observe it. The question is , is it just a coincidence or there is link between our consciousness factor and speed of earth rotation ? May be we have developed our processing speed during evolution to be much faster than day-night cycle speed. This also gives another thought , are there such things happening around us which are way faster than our detection and so we are missing it? I would call this as a Time Link.
Everyone who has ever lived on this earth died one day or will die. We have not yet evolved ourselves to be able to live forever. This is one of the pure truths of life. We are mortals. Rather, every living being is mortal. However we become rich, powerful, peaceful, intelligent we can not escape the death cycle. “Even Einstein dies” is the very truth we experience. Now if “being born” and “dying” are linked via life , why not “dying” and “getting birth” are linked ? They can be linked based on state of mind at the time of death. More stable you are at the time of death, more peaceful your nature will be in the next life. If you die absolutely peaceful like Buddha, you need not another life at all. The link between death and rebirth can be called as Life link.
There are many more links like these and is just a step into knowing the nature of the world we live in. Share your thoughts on these lines if you are thinking on similar lines in the comments below.
Thanks for taking time from your busy life to visit Purity. I hope you had a different thought to take with you Today.
Good one, Dhananjay! Keep it up.
