who am i?what am I made of? where do I come from and where do I go? what am I here for?are we all connected?why is it that we are instantly attracted?connected to certain people/plants/animals?why are we instantly repelled by some? what is it that holds us all together?

 We all are made up of energy.you me all beings, different species of plants animals insects, even all inanimate things, this laptop that I am working on,the bed I am sitting on, this table every single thing is made up of energy.Now even quantum Physics acknowledges what our Indian scriptures have been saying all along that we  are nothing but energy. and it  just changes form. Take a for example. When it is alive it is a thing of beauty. We enjoy it's beauty and its fragrance. when it dies, but wait does it actually die? death means it is of no use. That the energy is finished. But if the dead flower does not have energy left in it then how come we make manure out of dead plants? Manure provides nutrients to plants which mean that it has energy right? But then where does this energy come from?After all the flowers and plants used in manure are dead right? so then the question is does one really die? or the energy just changes form? From flower the energy goes to the manure. Also death should by definition mean" cease to exist". But does anything rally cease to exist completely? when a human being dies they are either cremated or buried as per their religious leanings. The flesh may dissolve over a period of time,but the bones remain, they might decay, rot , may be eaten up by insects over a period of time but wait how can the bones of something which has been"dead" over a period of time provide nourishment i.e. energy source to a life form? when a body is burnt, the ashes remain. They might be scattered in a holy water body,or over a mighty majestic Mountain range but it is still there.Does it vanish completely..vamoosh?No it just changes form and is easily readily accepted by another life form. It gives nourishment to the new life form.Does it mean that we all are connected at our base level? what nourishes me nourishes you..!the colour of the blood of all life form is the same RED..all life forms require the same things for survival namely sunlight water and food, we all are born and we all die..but after the death we all nourish some life form or the other..so basically we all are the same..just the physical appearance is different. Then why so much of apathy for life forms which are different from us? we all are made of the same matter, we all will be a part of the same matter that we came from..then why this hatred and sheer disregard for other life forms which are non human beings? and why such feeling that certain lives matter less than others?

How attached we are to the physical appearance! That which is easily replaceable becomes of paramount importance and that which is ,which always will be is sorely neglected.
