Life and nature need no ideological approvals

 Life and nature in their entirety have so much to offer while we are busy trying to differ based on all ideologies we nurture.

The more we observe ( unhindered by any precondition including presumptive rationality) and learn to be frank to our own​ ​self ( without any need to please anyone,  get approvals from any) we end up seeing some meaning , some purpose, some importance and some beauty in everything. 

Then we may develop a passion based on those learning and enjoy life as a wholesome package come what may and live through that, sometimes very possessive , at times possessed and may end up seeing the futility of them all leading to a detachment.  

But till we attain that stage we must not revel in presumptive illusions.

Adi Shankara's Bhajagovindam if understood with proper perspective gives in a nutshell some ( not all ) of the essence of vital and intrinsic aspects of life and its journey.

naliniidalagata jalamatitaralaM, tadvajjiivitamatishayachapalam . viddhi vyaadhyabhimaanagrastaM, lokaM shokahataM cha samastam .. 

The life of a man is as uncertain as rain drops trembling on a lotus leaf. Know that the whole world remains a prey to disease, ego and grief.

The above sloka has multiple meanings and hence may be interpreted in many ways. In the internet itself you will find a few hundreds.
