Earth Hour beckons
The world celebrates Earth Hour today, March 28. With these quotes, let us think about our connection with a special Mother, who provides us food, air, water and shelter:
A caring mother looks after her child 24/7 without asking for payment or reward. She serves even if at times the child abuses her kindness. Mother Earth is a caring mother—so, we should think about how we treat the rivers, forests, land and air. Do we respect or destroy her beauty? Do we care for her as much as she cares for us?
One hour a day once a year will never be enough to show our appreciation for Mother Earth. It should be treated as an act of offering and thanksgiving for our loving “mother.”
A million spoiled brats in the world can create a sea of destruction. —But, a million responsible children can create a strong movement of environmental conservation and protection!
Life of simplicity
A life of simplicity is possible for people who find comfort in nonmaterial happiness, because it nurtures inner joy and peace. But, those who prefer material gratification will always be hungry within, because they use and abuse the resources they continually accumulate.
Earth Hour exists with the light of love and wisdom. It’s a light that is never extinguished and shines brightly in the heart of individuals who has found genuine happiness.
If you turn off your lights, you’ll see the moon and stars sparkling in the sky. You’ll see the beauty of the night and witness the amazing riches of the natural world. Thank the Supreme Person for guiding you, and for being a true friend and well-wisher. Seeing such wondrous beauty is a humbling and fulfilling experience!
