The court of conscience…

“Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.” by Albert Schweitzer

“Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.” by Albert Schweitzer

Sometimes, When I read through the newspaper, people are happily to showcase how intelligent  and how happy they are in catching a giant fish, a giant turtle, a giant snake, a giant….. Normally, they’ll highlight on how heavy is our animal friends.

They felt so proud of their action and to them it seems like a “Victory”.

They do not respect all creatures as sacred “Life”.

Some, they might kill and eat their meat, some, they might kill and quite a slim chance, they’ll release the wildlife to nature.

Imagine, How challenging for a wild life to grow bigger as nowadays aggressive deforestation, in the name of development, they’ve lost their habitat – “home sweet home” and also their  “food” to maintain their life.

In order to survive, the only way is to come nearer to human habitat.

We assume their action as “Invasion”.

Who is the “INVADER”?

Contemplate about it!

Before you decide to take any action to other beings, think whether are you taking the same action to yourself.

Think about whether your action is

wholesome or unwholesome,

bringing happiness or suffering,

Morally right or wrong,

bringing benefit or harm.

If you, yourself also do not want the “treatment”, do you think other beings welcome your action?

“There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience.”

By Mahatma Gandhi
