Do Something

Do Something!
A man distraught by all the pain and suffering he saw all around him broke down and banged his fists into the dirt.His head turns upward and he yells at his God.
"Look at this mess. Look at all this pain and suffering. Look at all this killing and hate. God. Oh God! WHY DON'T YOU DO SOMETHING!!"

And his God spoke to him and said"I did. I sent you."

* Let us stop complaining; do not be negative. We should do what we can to help make the world a better place to live in.

* Pain and suffering arise in the world of people because of the defilements of Greed, Hatred, Delusion and Fear.

* Charity, service or reaching out to others to help relieve their suffering are essential practices in walking the Spiritual Path.
