Often we are bogged down with the problems of life and the rush of our busy life. Often we don’t have time to sit down with our family or friends and talk about our problems. We are so caught up in work. We get so stressed, that we often wish to stop work, to give up, or to do much worse things, because we have all emotions bottled up inside of us. Have you ever thought of turning to nature?
Nature is a good comforter for us. She is our mother, the earth calls to us in our times of distress. Sighted people say that they can enjoy nature by looking at it and most of us feel that nature can only be seen with our eyes. This is not entirely correct. We blind people can also enjoy and relate to nature, we can feel and touch the mud, the soil, the plants feel their emotions, by touching each bud, each petal each flower. We can hear the waves of the sea, it give a tranquil and energetic and a soothing feeling. Even the wind is a calming force in times of anger. Often when I am angry, or sad, I go out stand in a balcony, or on the road or in a garden anywhere and feel the cool breeze on my face, it comforts me and I immediately forget my distress. If I happen to be near a water body, I dip my hands or feet, in it and let it sooth me. The trickling cool water is also a source of comfort. Soothing sounds of the birds and the crickets too are a source of satisfaction and bliss, but now we often don’t register these things and are always on social media, finding out how many likes we got for each post and determining our worth based on this. We don’t sit down and have face to face conversations anymore. We should bring back those times, share feel people and feel nature and its eternal bliss, the energy each person has to offer.
