After the long spell of rain, now we have a sunny evening. If rainy days last too long the water of life can become the water of death, damaging and destroying flora and fauna.
Today is the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. History is repeating itself in Japan with the same suffering for those who will live with the consequences of irradiation for the rest of their lives. Not only humans, but also animals, plants, air, earth, and water are contaminated.
They must suffer for life. Actually the whole life system must suffer rainy days for millions of years, with irradiation from nuclear power plants, nuclear waste, etc.
We humans have also rainy days, with suffering from all vicissitudes, birth and death. But when we sit solid, we can stop karma and suffering in nirvana, unconditioned peace, and we can taste amrita, ambrosia of immortality. Thus we can have sunny days after rainy days.
