Nature's Fury and more

What a terrible few days. China. Burma. So many people dead. Mother nature can be cruel sometimes. All those children trapped with their parents waiting outside. So many people rendered homeless. Why? What does it all mean.

And as if nature hadn't done enough, man had to have his say too. Bomb blasts in Jaipur. More people dead.

It is scary to think how many people died the last week that weren't supposed to. Or were they? Strange are the ways of God. Yes I am still hanging on to my faith. But looking for an explanation

Strange are the ways of the god and stranger are the ways of us humans!

I understand your sadness in thinking about these shows your compassion. It's ok to reflect on terrible things like what happened in 1984, the woman in Iraq, the recent disasters in myanmar, china, jaipur. But no sense in dwelling on them. Wouldn't it be better to focus on who you are, what you want to do, and how to do it. Buddha was ultimately an extremely proactive person - he knew he wanted to figure something out, and then devoted his entire life to figuring it out. In doing so, he inspired others to do the same, and made a huge impact on the world. Better to channel the energy of feeling sad about these things into figuring out how you can use your ideas, skills, and passion to make a difference in the world. Be proactive in figuring out who you are and what you want, like Buddha, and then go for it!

My comment is the same as the one in the previous post.

Btw, nice layout. However, imho, the flower should be facing up - its who you are!

Amit - great perspective...thanks...i know it is pointless to think this way and not do anything about it, but the mind does strange things sometimes
