Nature, everything around us. Including us. Sometimes, people don’t understand, people don’t see better, people don’t listen. People just use what they wanted to use, people just see what they wanted to see, people just think what they wanted to think and do whatever they want to do. They don’t see another point of view, they don’t put themselves as the nature itself. So here they come. When nature don’t listen what people say, when nature don’t do what people want to do, when nature don’t act the way it supposed to act, when humans don’t synchronize with nature.
Have you ever think about nature, once. How it provide everything for us, not only the materials, but also the value of life. What we should do in order live are actually synchronizing from nature.
Now, have you ever think about turtle? Turtle that already exist in this world the longest. As we know, turtle had lived from the dinosaur era. Where we, humans aren’t even exist yet. Sure, they had more experience than us. And sure, they have something or maybe a lot of thing to teach us.
The beginning of turtles are from inside the shells. The eggs. No wonder turtles are tough animals. They meet their predators even when they were so young, too young maybe we can say. And, at this state, they can only just relies on the sand that covered them. They have neither a mother to defend nor a father to protect.
After 8 to 10 weeks of developing, finally they hatched. Absolutely not all of them. This step of life is getting tougher as the increasing of obstacles and life threat. These little turtles came out of the sand and have to find their own way to life. Into the sea they go. So then they started to run and swim into the water. You think it’s easy to go to the water? Same when we learn to walk or learn to ride a bicycle, it’s not easy. Absolutely not. Imagine, it was the first time they came out to the world, but the predators and other life threat creatures with alert stand in front of them. But no matter how much it were, no matter how big they got, no matter how tall they stand and scary they were, the turtles tries hard to go through. No matter what, they don’t think those obstacles will stop them for going to the sea. Even if the the one who stand still and live were just only on third of the main amount.
Without their parent they live, at this point, nature provide it all. They can eat and live from the nature without harming it. Not only the food and other things that support it, but also the threat. Yes, nature also serve the threat for it. It’s one of the cycle. How they live with balance. Turtle represent this independent character for us to be learnt.
Here come the edge live for the turtle. When they become adult, there will be only one survivor among all of the eggs that laid in the beach back then. After they fight against the cruelty of this world, the survivor will come back to the beach where it hatched, and laid eggs there. Can you see how much loyalty it gives? After a long time they gone, faraway they swim, at the end, they always find their way back. They always found where they belong.
And one more thing. They always live a humble life. They never change their house and take it wherever it goes.
