Today, I took a day off to bring my mum to general hospital for a blood test. I got a shock when I stepped in to the hospital, too crowded with patients. The total waiting area was fully pack and hardly can find any empty seat. A lot of people were standing to wait for their turn. This was the first time I ever seen this situation.
I believe one of major contributor factor is from the impact of severe haze in our country, it brought negative effect to people health. A lot of children and elderly people are badly hit by the haze. A forest burning in our neighboring country and it bring disaster to us. A great reminder that we must be mindful on our action, a little action from us, we might affect other’s life without realization. Think about deeply and think about others before you take any action.
One of my friend shared with me that when he can’t find any reason for happiness, when he is sad and depressed, he’ll pay a visit in hospital. When he looked at people who are suffered deeply from sickness, immediately he feel blessed and gratitude that he has a healthy body. He transformed his sadness to compassion to all patients in the hospital. He totally forgot about his sadness.
Just take out a piece of paper, to write down the condition for your happiness…. perhaps, you need more paper to list down all conditions, healthy body, good eyesight, a loving family, surrounded by good people, able to read, to sit for meditation, singing, yoga practice, accompanied by lovely animal friends, cooking, baking, walking, jumping, running, standing, squat down, typing….
Why not smile?
Shine your happiness to others, let’s make your warm smile to be contagious to others…You can!
I am smiling now! Hope you are smiling too!!!
