Basic Principles of the Laws of the Nature
- The primary and important nature of the law of the nature is “balance” that produces “harmony” and harmonious living that displays joy in life, i.e, simple joy.
Human beings who think and declare ourselves as nature lovers, environmental activists, naturalists, conservationists, and so on, should first subdue ourselves to this very law of the nature. “Balance” in all aspects of life and with all communities of beings is the key to justice, and justice is the key to peace, and peace is the gateway into life in full-ness: full of love, full of blessings, full of energy to be shared among all societies of beings.
Living in a “balanced life” is living in harmony with one self and with each other, which is living according to the law of the nature.
- The law of the nature is giving and sharing, not seeking to accumulate; not saving and capitalizing based on individual needs and personal satisfaction. And therefore, life is based on giving and sharing, not by taking, and saving.
- Human beings should learn and obey the reality that by nature, humans are social being, and not individual “selves” in isolation that should be developed to achieve the personal ‘self-realizations’. Accepting the “self” as individual undermines the reality that the whole existence and life that is inter-connected and inter-dependent as a society of beings. Life is not in isolation from one another but rather in connection with one another.
Therefore, existence in isolation equals to death, and existence in connection means life.
- The law of the nature is not about what is right and what is wrong, nor about what is rational and what is not arguable. It is about what makes life in harmony and joyful.
- The law of the nature has nothing to do with anthropocentrism, human economy or politics; but always in connection with the whole ecology and ecosystem of beings.
In short, human beings are invited to get in tune with the nerve and vibration of the overall living system; all human needs should now take into account the consequences to and impacts on their communities of beings, in seeking the ‘balance’, that will produce harmony, that will display joy of life; not in seeking human pleasures, human needs and human wants.
