We have seen
how nature reacts when we let greed to rule our lives and when we remain
divided. Now let us watch how nature would react when we let love to rule our
lives and when we remain united like a family caring even for the animals.
Nature would respond according to change of attitude of its inhabitants. (compare
Genesis 4:13, 14)
From my personal life, I have observed there
is violation of law(s) behind suffering, and there is observance of law(s)
behind well-being. Both well-being (when laws are observed) and ill-effects
(when laws are violated) are results of some laws that are at work, like two
sides of a coin. For example, in skillful cooking, delicious dishes are
produced which means some laws are perfectly observed. In careless cooking, what
you cook is burned, or food item being turned black into carbon, which again means
some laws are at work. Living things contain the element carbon. That is
because many organic compounds are present in living things such as
carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids. Organic compounds contain both
the elements Hydrogen and Carbon besides any other elements that may be present
in a compound. Therefore, anything that was once alive that you cook and
subsequently burn, will turn black and the charred material will definitely
contain the element carbon. The unexpected ill-effects from violating some laws
are felt as suffering and as bad.
What I said about cooking is a sample. There is violation of laws behind every calamity--causes of some are known, causes of others are yet to be known. Everything happens according to some law.
