Love yourself and love others!

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.

Look at the sky color, it's depressing. I read an article that the ratio of  people committed suicide is higher in winter time as they are surrounded by "depressing scene".

Yesterday, I had a conversation with my friend, no matter how worst is our environment, we must stay positive, shift our angle of thinking  and change our perspective of life. When we look at the sky color, let’s imagine we are actually in “winter” now, perhaps we are in oversea countries and enjoy our vacation. Besides, stay indoor as air quality no good, we can take this opportunity to do spring cleaning, reading and others instead of keep running outdoor. It all depend on your thinking! You are what you think! 

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.

The unhealthy haze also bring disaster to our plant… a lot of yellowish leaves and some even dying.

How many animal friends will lost their life in forest fire? How many animal friends and insects are being affected by the haze?

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!

  1. i love your posts and take plenty of inspiration from your wisdom but i must disagree with your advice that we cannot change the external environment and must therefore go inward and manage our own minds. even Buddhists must sometimes speak out against/protest/become warriors for what needs to change. or before long none of us will have the air we need to survive.
