The Days of Change 73rd Day 03-14

by Administrator 14. March 2011 04:15

The world around us is changing as we speak, so do we… after all, we are a part of it. It doesn’t happen because we agreed’s just the fact of life. The truth is, on occasions we are the active element initiating the change. Other times we become increasingly aware of the need for it…. and by allowing it to happen…. we ease the transformation. There are big changes affecting us on the “world scale” and others, influencing our personal one. Then…we also have small changes, hardly noticeable …the minute one…not clearly noticed or discovered on the daily basis, until seemingly constant life as we know is gone….. .  There are also changes due to the natural disasters…tragic one and very disturbing. Unfortunately the unpredictability of these events is very saddening, the aftermath tragic, leaving us in disbelief and horror. It’s almost impossible to find comfort in purely philosophical approach…we are hurt by massive suffering ….seeing no reason for it, blaming senseless cruelty of physics… I always try to see things from broader perspective and look for the bigger picture…but my heart goes to all the people in Japan affected by that. I can’t find calm understanding or philosophically detached approach to that tragedy. Also I can’t agree to ever find a reason for it…as if everything happens for a reason…too much suffering… I know, people of Japan are strong and they will not only survive this painful lesson but also..learn from it…There are times when we all need to help…any way possible…this is one of them…It doesn’t matter if you can’t do a lot…do what you can at this moment…That’s the only way, I can find consolation ….if we are not going to let this touch our hearts…and we will not make any effort to make a difference…then the change which is taking place in us, is more terrifying then any natural disasters…Just because it seems unreal…and viewed from the distance …it doesn’t mean it’s not happening…we have an imagination and it should tell us ..It could happen anywhere….unpredictability is the word…We don’t have a control over such a tragic events…but I am sure, we do have a control in the way,  we react to them….If, it has to take such a tragedy to open our hearts and become compassionate…then,  let it happen….let it change us for better...

The Little Prince

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."

"They don't find it," I answered.

"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

"Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."
