Some of us, we might think that to see a blue sky, enjoy fresh air and warm sunshine are so easy and common. There is nothing special and can be achieved.
The weather in our country is all year round with sunshine and raining, there is no four season. During my childhood time, everyday, I can see bright sunshine, enjoy fresh air and of course a beautiful blue sky, it was not a dream.
However, in the name of development, a few years back our country being surrounded by unhealthy haze from neighbouring country, it might last for a month or even more. Unfortunately, this year, we are suffered from the worst haze, it’s more than a month, we are only seeing grey sky, inhale “toxin and burning smell” air and hardly to enjoy sunshine. Some of my friends and also small kids get ill due to the bad weather condition.
No matter how much you are going to blame, angry, frustrated, cursing, you can’t stop whatever happen in the external environment, however you have the authority to change your thinking and give best blessings to those people who are responsible in the burning forest land for plantation, may they awaken and realized that their action bring suffering to all beings, may they transform themselves.
Think about it, how many living beings and nature being affected by the unhealthy haze???
Always think about the implication of our action towards others, are we bringing happiness or suffering? What is the meaning of enjoying great wealth while sacrificing other’s happiness?
We are one and we are interconnected!
Love yourself and love others!
