Being is not easy for anyone, because life in all its myriad forms is just so cruel! However, humans as a species enjoy much better a life than most other beings, a truth that is readily forgotten when trivial concerns fog the minds of those who actually don’t have much to worry about, as compared to the disadvantaged who don’t have a roof over their heads or struggle to find the next meal, if at all!
Instead, we should be grateful for just being alive and for all the comforts that we take for granted. Out of the seven billion or so people on the plant, how many of us can actually enjoy an online video? Not even a billion is the answer!
When you worry too much, you in turn make a lot more people than you think as gloomy as you are. A smile instead can make someone else’s day!
Thanks to R Smittenaar for kindly permitting us to use his video ‘The Great Bell Chant [The End of Suffering]’ for this edit.
