“Where the mind’s free, the body’s delicate”. – William Shakespeare
“The mind is it’s own place, and in itself Can make a heaven of Hell , a hell of Heaven.” – John Milton ( Nature and Mind / Kalpatarurudra.org)
” Mental slavery is mental death , and every man who has given up his intellectual freedom is the living coffin of his dead soul.” – R G Ingersoll
The afternoon of my city is very calm and quiet. Because most of the city dwellers used to take rest sometimes after a heavy lunch. I have been observing it for decades. So, a pin-drop silence prevails everywhere like midnight. I’m busy with my Nature and mind .
Secondly, in winter season, people are captivated by the house under the quilt. And the pandemic situation makes it massively isolated by which we are not happy at all. I don’t like to sleep after lunch. Therefore, sitting in an armchair in the Veranda, I am looking to and fro and thinking about Nature.
Some tall tree of shal – segun and other trees are standing up keeping their head to the sky . Gentle winds touch their leaves so lovingly and its move with joy . Even shivering with the cold blow . How much joyously they are living in this cold season. In the meantime, I am to find out a tall man who is our home servant.
Oh Nature! How Big You Are!
He has been working in our house for a long time since my birth. Rup Singh is his name. Unmarried Rup Singh is an illiterate person having no burden of the family on his shoulder. He is returning to our house from the market purchasing some betel leaves and its spices. He used to have it.
This is only his fad to masticating spicy betel leaves. Rup Singh is indifferent in any circumstances. I never saw him be getting restlessness. He is just like a tall tree never bend his head in worldly affairs and passions.
Nature’s Impact On Mind : Can trees think ?
Can tree thinks like us ? Is there any sorrow and agony to their lives? I feel they’re very spontaneous in its entire life. When it grows up and gradually reach in full youth , it looks heavenly beautiful. In spring they are dressed in green leaves and moon -like flowers. So it seems they are enjoying their lives with joy .
Nature looks like a Queen. Are they talking about one’s love to another ? Don’t know whether they have any feelings of sorrow or joy ! Sometime I think , like Rup Singh our surrounding Nature , all these tall trees are indifferent in joy and sorrow . If they could have a mind like us , then they can feel their good and bad
Hence, Nature and mind has been massively exploited and tortured owing to our civilization. This indifferent Nature never protests against this treachery. But gradually they are becoming conscious and trying to defend themselves when they’re kept at bay.
Human being can think :Nature and Mind
But we are human beings having wisdom within us. If I don’t have any domestic duty, and not going to purchase raw vegetables or medicine in the market, I couldn’t stay in silence for a moment. Because we have a mind who is all in all in my life. Our mind never stops thinking until we get to sleep.
So what we could, the steady and firm tall tree couldn’t. They couldn’t imagine what we could. They shelter us in the hotty summer. Because weary Passer-by can take rest for a while under its shed.
Hence, If trees are not, we can’t survive without the oxygen that they produce. Moreover,with their gentle summer breeze, we are getting the touch of Mother.
They’re with us from the very beginning of civilization. So, You can say that they’re our beloved companions after snow – era or Himyuga . But being a man we have denied their friendship and killed them to enjoy our comfort.
Nature didn’t betray us, but we did. Hence, let rule the demonic mind, and bring up the godly mind which is an urgent need of the time.(Rabindranath Tagore in depressions/kalpatarurudra.org)
