People love to keep their homes clean, yet, when it comes to the general environment we often notice an appalling assortment of mess…be it at picnic spots, bus stands, railway stations, lanes and even on the main roads…quite frequently from public transport, rickshaws or from cars too, empty wrappers are nonchalantly thrown out.
Littering reflects an uncaring attitude, lack of ethics and culture as well as insensitive disregard and disrespect for the surroundings, for mother earth and the motherland. Shirking our moral responsibility, we praise the clean and wondrous environment in other countries and degrade our own nation.
Each individual has a social responsibility…towards public areas and public property. Even educated persons often need to be enlightened about social norms and etiquettes.
When we indulge in littering or even overlook such indulgences by people throwing rubbish anywhere else other than the garbage bin…it reflects in an inner chaos too, an untidy muddled mess…a right royal jumble of emotions and a disarray of thoughts.
Clutter leads to stagnant energy.
If we do not introspect, reflect, let go of all that which doesn’t resonate with our core or causes a jarring feeling in the heart or doesn’t serve our purpose anymore…all that which obstructs our peace, our joy, our self-confidence, our growth…we will continue to stagnate and perhaps another lifetime will be labelled as ‘waste’.
Worries, regrets, guilt, negative memories…pour it…immerse it all in the Fountain of Love within…let’s commit to consciously breathe in the radiant harmony of Sai.
Attune to the inner truth…an inner knowing that each of us is a unique individual that has a lot to offer the Universe…and the Universe too is waiting for us to open up to our own luminosity beyond the dark clutter of the mind. Where there is a will…there is a miracle.
