We can still see the clear full moon through the window. We cannot but see complications on earth. The disaster could claim over 20,000 lives, and the nuclear crises could reach even this country.
I watched TV this morning, seeing a lot of things developing. This country is helping, using helicopters to spot the most isolated and endangered people, and delivering necessities.
There was a report on a graduation ceremony at a high school. One student said, “Even though we have been preparing for disasters, we couldn’t overcome such a big natural power.”
We can not overcome the extraordinary disaster. And our human complications magnify them, once natural disasters happen. Smaller systems cannot win over greater systems.
The Buddha said, “When we have roofs, we have leaks.” When we have selves, we have leaks of delusions, attachments, and aversions, and a lot of problems and sufferings.
The moon is simple, shining forth bright, beautiful, clear, and cool. On earth, however, we have so many complications, so we cannot be so bright, beautiful, clear, and cool.
If we want to keep our world systemic, sustainable, and safe, we must live as simply as possible and save not only ourselves but also the entire system.
We must adjust to the entire system, the global system. Saving is to keep the wholesome whole system, going beyond and opening up our self-sticking.
Anyone can “come and see” “the good in the beginning, in the middle and in the end,” right here and now, in peace and awakening in truth, freedom, equality, love, and peace.
