Sometimes, we might not be able to finish all our biscuits. It might be soggy, not so fresh or almost near the expiry date. How do you handle it?
Are you throw away as rubbish?
Have you ever think that your rubbish can transform to be food to other beings?
Normally, we will crush all this biscuits and feed to ants and other insects.
This is a simple act but we can practice our loving kindness and compassion to others.
Ideally, purchase what we need. However, if this really happen, do not dump it to rubbish bin.
Think about other beings, they are just like us, they need food for themselves and also their family..
Offer them instead of waste it!
The essence of love and compassion is understanding, the ability to recognize the physical, material, and psychological suffering of others, to put ourselves “inside the skin” of the other. We “go inside” their body, feelings, and mental formations, and witness for ourselves their suffering. Shallow observation as an outsider is not enough to see their suffering. We must become one with the subject of our observation. When we are in contact with another’s suffering, a feeling of compassion is born in us. Compassion means, literally, “to suffer with.”
