A spark is all you need

Here is one of the best examples to show that nature is, indeed, the best teacher.

I had sowed seeds of chillies a couple of months ago. The plants are now fully grown, and we even get chillies every now and then. It so happened that, one of the plants wilted all of a sudden. Maybe it was the wind, or kitty might have accidentally stepped on the plant, whatever the reason, its stem was broken. The plant started to wilt and I thought it would die. I pushed the broken stem deeper into the ground, hoping that it would keep the plant alive. As days passed by, the plant started showing signs of life again. It was no longer wilting. Now, the plant looks healthy. In fact, there are tiny little chillies on it.

Sometimes in life, we lose hope. We feel that no matter how much we try, everything is working against us. We withdraw. We isolate ourselves. But there is always a tiny spark of hope. Just like the chilli plant that had a second chance to live, we too have a second chance, to improve our lives for better. To move ahead, to live our lives to the fullest and be happy. All we need is a spark. The spark maybe in the form of a spiritual awakening where we realise that we are always connected to a higher power, or a person, who would motivate us to move away from the darkness.

All you have to do is look around, and you will find answers. If not answers, then nature will always provide you with enough experiences, to show you that there is always hope and love.
