We destroyed it. We were unjust to it. We overburdened it. We almost committed a murder. We betrayed our origin. We did too much. Each one of us! But it was strong enough to heal itself, to use self-correcting mechanisms, and clever enough to stay safe.
Did we ever think what a great blessing it is? We were too busy satisfying our luxuries, our wants. We were too busy capturing the world, we were too busy being ignorant. We became too materialistic for our beloved land and thus, we forced it to press the pause button. But it is the mother after all, who cannot see her children suffer because of her, and so, it will emerge, more energetic, more resourceful. It just went on a break, too tired of us oblivious kids who would always keep their mom on its toes, who would never let her take a chill, who would never understand the true meaning behind Mother Nature, until they grew up. But the question that remains is, will us humans ever grow up?
Why are we strained of this pandemic? It’s simply the “reaction of our own actions”. We might not have seen this coming because we were too busy destroying our land, we were too busy being ungrateful, we were too busy complaining of what we did not have. We expected this earth to last forever – to provide us with whatever whenever we wanted, only so we could use and abused it, all the time.
It had to snooze off! To tell us that we are doing is erroneous. To teach us that we are not doing it right. But, will we ever understand what it is trying to tell us? We are all ready for it to wake up – heck, most of us have also disturbed her while it was taking the one-off power nap! What a stubborn mankind we have become.
Let us take this huge favor of time to reflect deeply, to slow down a bit, to understand what we are here for, to relax and to be moderate. We have had a great power nap, and are ready to emerge stronger than before, but we are yet to choose the direction that we want to go in now. So let’s choose wisely.
