12 – A
Life, La vie, Leben, among many others are just a few words which mean life, but sometimes it may come in the mind of the reader to ask them self over and over again, What is life? How did it come to be? Are we the only ones out here? and obviously a plethora of other questions. Life is looked upon from many perspectives: a scientific one, wherein it originated from atoms and molecules of organic nature; or a religious one, where God created it. But irrespective of the point of view, some people tend to believe that science and religion do not work together on the life theory. Science merely calls life as a chance event of the orientation of atoms and molecules while the religious point of view would point to it as a blessing of God. But no matter what, it is important to remember that life may be a lucky arrangement of atoms or even a blessing of God- to be with life is truly a miracle in itself. Life is not complex for us to understand, it is far too simple for us to even think of it in that way. We can’t comprehend life if we seek it in complex equations and similar laws. Life is not governed by any laws other than the laws of nature-and they are the simplest ones you can find. So no matter what one may feel about life, it is always important to know that you are not alone in your queries about it-you are one among 7 and a half billion sentient beings all thinking of who made them and what is their true purpose in life. When in doubt about what is your role as a person, and what you could contribute to society, always think- Life is too full of beautiful miracles to not rest and wonder at, but to explore; there are always billions with you!
