REFLECTIONS ON THE SICHUAN QUAKE

June 8, 2008
REFLECTIONS ON THE SICHUAN QUAKE

The human race seems to be the only creature capable of defying nature when we see all around us the artificial world that we have created. We even defy gravity to venture into space… Everything we have created is an illusion but of course we must admit that some illusions are truly BEAUTIFUL…

The law of nature prevail no matter how hard humanity tries to strike out on her own…

Much as I weep tears of grief & compassion for the people of Sichuan… I see the quake as nature’s way of expressing her natural power of “CREATIVE DESTRUCTION” when the natural harmony is out of sync with the LAW…

TAO unseen… through the natural forces of yin and yang unleashes a power that humanity can never control to destroy and re-create. The natural harmony will be maintained no matter how humanity seeks to shape the world to her liking. When will humanity ever learn that we can not strive to be separate from TAO?

The free will that humanity possesses leads humanity to create this material world… it also leads humanity to view themselves as separate from the world… and thus we see the trait of selfishness being displayed by the human race in their competition with one another to create the best for themselves, their families, their race, their nation, etc. etc.

It takes the power of the natural forces to unleash a tragedy so devastating to enable humanity to rise above their natural selfish tendencies….

It is the DESTINY of those poor souls who perished in the quake to sacrifice their lives so that we may learn what true

COMPASSION
is…

I am moved to tears by this song composed by May Chan. The translation of the song’s lyrics by Alice Poon below…

ZAI JIAN LE BA... MA...

The sky is darkening, and the birds have gone to bed.
I’m all alone and thinking about my papa and mama.
Their faces so kind, sweet like honey,
They are saying goodbye to me, from that place so far away.

Goodbye, mama, goodbye, papa,
I know you love me so.
Goodbye, mama, goodbye, papa,
I will not fear if the sky gets darker still.
I will grow up all the same.

But I still miss you, and your cosy arms
That hug me so close to you.
I’m thankful to you, and I wish you well in silence,
Hoping you will find peace, in that far-away place.

Goodbye, mama, goodbye, papa,
I know you love me so.
Goodbye, mama, goodbye, papa,
I will not fear if the sky gets darker still.
I will grow up all the same.

Goodbye, mama, goodbye, papa,
I know you love me so.
Goodbye, mama, goodbye, papa,
I will not fear if the sky gets darker still.
I will grow up all the same.


Thank you my fellow human for reminding that we are ONE and that our destiny in this realm is to help one another grow bigger and bigger spiritually….
