Nowadays the only news we hear and read is about the virus and the impact it has on our lives both emotionally and economically. And the conclusion is that we humans are responsible for this pandemic because I read in an article that The world is heading for an “ecological credit crunch” far worse than the current financial crisis because humans are over-using the natural resources of the planet Earth.
The Living Planet report calculates that humans are using 30% more resources than the Earth can replenish each year, which is leading to deforestation, degraded soils, polluted air and water, and etc etc. That is the sorry state of affairs at the moment. Since we are to blame for this pandemic..whom can we blame ?
They say this is Gods way of showing us that we are responsible for our own actions..so we have to find a way out of this predicament. Absolutely true and we are trying.
God created this beautiful masterpiece called “EARTH” on a largest canvas that none can even imagine. Even the most famous painters like Leonardo Da Vinci.. Pablo Picasso.. Vincent Van Gogh….Rembrandt.. can not equal Gods creation which he lovingly painted for us HUMANS.. the beautiful snow peaked mountains.. the sea ..the rivers..greenery…forests.. the beautiful Sun which is like a huge ball of fire shining in all its glory and heralding a new day every day..the beautiful picturesque sunset..and then the pitch black velvety nite with the silvery moon which is like a huge chandelier surrounded by the twinkling stars which are like small lanterns in the sky. The sheer beauty of this planet is so awe inspiring that no painter can do justice to it. Unfortunately God created this beautiful world but he also created humans…and as we all know humans are bound to err. We have been selfish and destroyed and tarnished this beautiful masterpiece created by God. Now it is our turn to make amends.
We all have expectations..infact that is our greatest flaw ..we expect too much . When we are young we expect our parents to provide us with all the luxuries that others have and maybe our parents cannot fulfill all our demands due to lack of resources,that annoys us and many even rebel. Then we have expectations from our friends and colleagues.. expectations from our siblings.the list goes on and on. We humans always have expectations which when not fulfilled leaves us dissatisfied with life ..eventually leading us sometimes into depression and mental trauma and serious health issues. Why can’t we learn Acceptance ? Expectation they say is the greatest heartache whereas acceptance is mental peace and joy. So we should lower our expectations and the day we do that we will all be in a happier place.
Even now in this grave situation our expectations are from God the Almighty ..but that I think is absolutely fine as God is the only one whom we can turn to when we feel that nothing else can work for us and then only the Almighty can save us. So now we once again turn to God for help and I am sure He will help us provided we all do our bit to rectify our mistakes and make Earth a better place to live in.
So please God wave your magic wand and with one swish just make everything normal again…let us get up one fine day and see the world in all it’s glorious beauty and think that we have seen a nightmare which we never would like to see again.
Meanwhile we should all take utmost care of this great creation of God and never be greedy and misuse its resources…I am sure with all our unified prayers and the entire world coming together as one force God will definetly listen to our pleas.And soon we will wake up in the morning to a new dawn.
Till then just pray and know that God is there for us.
