Life is a wholesome package

 ​​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.
