These are just two pictures of the survivors in Japan after the earthquake and tsunami that had claimed too many other lives. The first picture above is a photo of a four-month-old baby girl on the third day after the earthquake, found by the Japan's self defence forces. They call her " small miracle".
I have taken a bit of 'a break' from blogging in the last few months and usually when I do blog, it's only because I feel compassionate and compelled to say what I do think. Since the disaster that has struck Japan, there has been comments and remarks on ' why the earthquake and tsunami hit 'big' time in Japan '.
And these were the remarks," Japan had it coming.....it's because of what they did to Pearl Harbour." And another said, " It was Japan's karma to go through this (i.e the tsunami and earthquake)...because of the fishermen whale killings "
Well, I'm pretty sure if the people who made this remarks had one of their relatives or loved ones been in Japan's disaster, would they still say their loved ones deserve to die? And let me put this to you, what kind of person are you to think such things and still pray for the safety of your children when you place such unkindness to another? How could you pray for peace around the world or your own country when you already have such tainted thoughts of bitterness? Are you so sure and convinced that your life is so perfect you've never done no wrong? I am sure if you had counted your karma, whether it be small or big, you be paying 'big' time to reclaim your innocence.
I don't believe that the wrong doings of another will be tainted on the person standing next to it. I don't believe that God would be so bitter as to hold such anger to revenge innocent lives lost. What kind of a Father or God would he be if he be as so unforgiving when any religion would have preach about forgiveness? Where is the compassion or faith in good things? Where is the peace if you have no peace in the words that you speak? Is your love for others so limited that you are blind to see others suffering? Who are we to judge?
I believe that we as human beings are more capable of so much more love if we find our trust and tear down our barriers of mistrust. I believe that every life is still precious and no innocent lives should go unnoticed and undeservingly punished when there is no just cause. Don't bother about refraining from using plastic bags to save the earth when you don't have compassion for innocent lives.
"Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny."
"An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind."
— Mahatma Gandhi
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
At the end of the day, we are all 'one'.....and I can only hope and pray we find peace within ourselves and our homes ...showing kindness where it's needed and love whenever you can....Om Shanti
