Unless for Nirvana, one cannot totally take away the sufferings they face in various situations of life. Every one of us goes through that. Birth, Getting older, Getting sick & death are truths that every one of us have to face. Certain truths of life cannot be realized unless we face that situation our self. For an example until we get older and cannot move freely we won’t feel how hard it is to live elderly. We are lucky if we do not fall sick that limits us to our own beds for years before we die.
Sometimes we see young people get various deceases that take their lives away. Likewise, any human at various stages face these circumstances that we feel terrible to go through. Natural disasters reminds us this truth. The truth that we are living in a world that nothing is permanent. The houses we build, the farming we do, the families we love, the lives we live or the earth, our home.
What happened is Philippine and the region was very devastating. It took many a lives away and left many injured, homeless and helpless. We must realize that this truth is common to all of us as well. We wouldn’t know when our lives come to an end.
Therefore, make it a point to live your life to the fullest with mindfulness. Help others and do good deeds. The only thing we should remember just before we die is the good deeds we did for people. That doesn’t come easy, unless we do so much that our hearts are only filled with “good” that we did.
