May we respect, appreciate, uphold, cherish and maintain our Mother Earth so that she can nurture all the living beings as she always has done in times of pandemic and golden age, for all these times in the memory
Education, economy, politics, religion, everything has to be individually upgraded and evolved to suit and remedy today’s reality and tomorrow’s next. It has to be updated, continuously updated.
Respect the water, that’s my heartfelt wish…
We all are 75% of water. If we don’t respect water, we are not respecting 75% of ourselves.
There is no such thing that we have progressed enough.
There is no such thing that our education system, our ecosystem or everything is perfect now.
They all need to be upgraded according to the world of its time.
Consumption as well as disposal, everything has to be upgraded.
Every day the overflow of the water that is happening in Greenland, that continent only, can give every one of the 7 billion human beings on earth more than 100 liters of that 3 million-year-old fresh water.
Technically speaking, if you are able to use 1% of the (melted) freshwater,
then we don’t have to worry about fresh water supply.
With conservation, it will be sustainable for long time.
You are not dead until you are dead.
The earth’s source of water, the reservoir is not dead yet.
It should be saved.
And if possible, saved in a way that is beneficial, at the same time for all the people on the earth.
To create a peaceful world, first thing is to make yourself a peaceful person.
You have to become a person who doesn’t create problem for others and problem for yourself.
We should be servant of everyone and we should be servant of ourselves.
But NOT the servant of our ego, NOT the servant of our greed,
NOT the servant of our hatred, NOT the servant of our jealousy.
Lots of the time where things go wrong is when we become the servant of our own ego and greed.
Whatever you believe in is forgiving all the time.
We don’t have to ask for forgiveness for that One to forgive.
But you can only receive it if you confess.
You can only confess if you regret.
If you think you are nothing, you are everything.
If you think you’re something, then you are just that ‘something’.
Something cannot be everything. Nothing can be everything.
Every moment the Lord within manifest, but I have mistaken it to Me (Self).
Every moment, everything manifests as the manifestation of the Lord, which is within,
but I have mistaken it as an Object (Other).
Even we conquer the whole world and beyond.
It doesn’t help if we don’t conquer our own ego, greed and hatred.
like equals who are sincere to each other.
like father and mother to their sons and daughters.
like from an enlightened one to the unenlightened, ignorant
and who are suffering.
We have to educate our next generation according to what is coming in the next generation’s time.
And we need to put wisdom in it, compassion in it, love in it, forgiveness in it.
Peace is harmony and education is the key. If people are not educated, then what is convenience in this electronic age can become the source of inconvenience. So much has developed technologically but we are not able to master it. Therefore, our own creation is ruling us and ruining our life.
