LET THIS BE NO MORE A 'MISSED CALL' IN MY LIFE!


Yes!  Today the Earth is very much Calling.... And there is not an iota of doubt in this....  Again, we are only the persons here that have to rise to the occasion and respond.... Both at the Individual level and at the Community level and the Conservation of Nature around should be the constant thought in the mind of every one of us.... Else the precious Natural Resources with us are not going to last long.... And our Planet Earth no more would be our dearly loved Home....

To date back, man was very much natural in the beginning and was almost leading a normal life in the society with limited man-made modifications around.... In time, the attractions by the side slowly overpowered him and man started actively interacting with some of those items.... Here the instant correctness required was never asserted with the control part of it coolly forgotten.... Thus, he quickly developed a great interest in using them as they could instantly bring a miracle of change in his presentation and ease in the outside world and endlessly started seeking the additional Comfort which was invariably part and parcel of that.... 

Out of such Fascination, man started using those items regularly daily in his life adding more and more to the Cart continuously.... In course of time, life had become more of Comparison with the next man by the side than required making the cohesive part of human existence sidetracking.... 

As the Fascination was high, a quick solution was sought instead of going to the root cause of all problems.... Patience had no time and that way again quick solutions were readily available whose number was not limited…. And the effect was equally there with a color but that soon faded away exposing the damage it had done in turn.... And soon, all such instant methods were found to be nothing but the stop gap arrangements alone and no firm solution was found in sight…. And exactly speaking, this is the life today we have with us where in the Natural Expression of ours has dramatically undergone a change and is further changing continuously....

Thus, expectation of ‘Quick Results’ in our day to day life with the artificial life woven around has become the basic cause of the problems we face presently in respect of the natural degradation around us.... Our instant actions and knee-jerk reactions for getting over the trivial situations in the fastest way are doing all that damage presently talked of in this context…. If continued thus beyond a limit, Nature is firmly going to put a brake there without a say and those symptoms have already started showing up....

I should always remember that Nature forever expects me be doing a positive effort, keeping off for a while with certain cool and taking returns in limited quantities over a longer period.... Further, while getting out of bad situations that may crop up all of a sudden in my personal life, I should allow the situation to simmer for a while without deterioration by addressing the problem gently and should give minimum time required to recover from the tough situation.... Further too through a firm determination, I should be bold enough to allow the threat to be by the side to some extent, keep myself always prepared to face the attack through a discipline of what is required in the situation and thus be living my life in tune with Nature’s Original Discipline comprising of the key words…. 
‘Allow’, ‘Sustain’ and ‘Refrain!'

In the process of living such a life, naturally the 'downs’ continue for a longer time and my discipline simultaneously should reduce the impact of such 'downs' through timely actions by making use of ancient proven methods and modern convenience providers in equal parts....

Thus our 'Sacred Chant' of today's life invariably goes....


After asserting CORRECTNESS in every aspect of life, let me sincerely start exercising due CONTROL in my life wherever feasible by optimizing the COMFORT involved therein at the back of certain sacrifices, of course all along never leaving the CONVENIENCE aspects of my basic living and thus ultimately try retaining human COHESIVENESS around me 'as is' to the extent possible!

No doubt I cannot unwind all this and once again go back to the original life too as that life once upon a time had its own problems of rawness and a certain brutality.... So let me accept the highly evolved life in front of me as is at the back of certain distinct merits of its own but let me move along from now on-wards with a much required discipline of the day comprising of the following simple activities from my side.... And these activities, perfectly feasible for me in my day to day life if followed with due attention and extra small effort multiplied over days and with the like minded people around too doing the same would soon bring in significant contribution to the task of saving our Mother Earth from the imminent catastrophe which is very much on the anvil this moment....
  • Let the Public Transport be used for certain routine movements wherein hither to I was just looking at my vehicle keys for all such movements....
  • Entertain Car Pooling for to and fro Office travel on days easily feasible to do that.... 
  • Take a walk or cycle instead of taking a ride for moving short distances around....
  • Minimize the use of gadgets at home for a day and go for the old tested manual methods of doing the same works....
  • Eat and drink the various consumables at room temperature on certain days to experience a newness in place of the routine....
  • Take Home remedies for routine minor ailments and thus adapt naturally to the minor ups and downs in health....
  • Adapt in parallel to the usual medication, a different life style for addressing the chronic health issues....
  • Know the chemicals regularly used in life and say 'NO' to a few once in a way where feasible....
  • Engage actively with various body movements required in a situation for the cause of expressing in the natural way....
  • Try and water regularly the plants in the garden and be with Nature for sometime daily....
  • Have no shortcut walks across the grass fields; always take the existing walk paths even if they appear to be a little longer....
  • Enjoy the beauty of flowers of your garden bloom and fade naturally on the plant itself without touching them....
  • Cater a few extra minutes for locating the yesterday's carry bag before going out for daily groceries....
  • Avoid the artificial comfort around for a while and make a habit of exposing to the natural environment existing by the side.... 
  • Let hard copies be done with where in e-papers do the trick without a problem.... And
  • Let me be ever ready to add more to this list which activities would not greatly disturb my routine!
The 16 point Agenda of my discipline here together is very much conveying the right Response for the Earth Calling....Yes....'LET ME TAKE THE CALL!'
