I am really amazed by:-
1) how the video was captured,
2) the fact that so many snakes would go after the iguana, and
3) the strong survival instinct of the iguana.
Living beings are simply amazing…
The stunning video can represent so many meanings to life… about people with patience and skills who made the video so that we get a chance to watch how nature works in the wild… the determination of the snakes to team up to catch their prey and the strong will of the iguana to escape from all the dangers… which, to me, sums up to the “actions” ~ kamma that bears the results or fruit at the end… like the sayings: “When there is a will, there is a way!”, “Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose!”, “Life is not perfect, you do not always get what you want!”, “It is all about planning and taking actions to make things happen!”, “Speed is everything!”, “Think on your feet!”, “There is always next time!” etc, etc, etc…. motivate yourself with whatever words you like as long as you get the message of the clip. It all depends on whose angle you are looking at or in whose capacity or interest you are focusing on… there is no right or wrong…
In the Ariyamagga Sutta (AN 4.235), the Buddha talked about four types of kamma and results… and if we are practitioners (whether potential or existing), we just have to be aware of them and be mindful of our thoughts and actions in the body, speech and mind… and about the path leading to the ending of kamma.
Sādhu! Sādhu! Sādhu!
