Newsletter - May 2022
5th June is celebrated as “World Environment Day”. In this month, we are sharing a powerful message about Nature received through WhatsApp. Please spare some time to listen the powerful youtube https://youtu.be/HcXcNL16Ql4. It says the following:
With just one little virus of mine,
You are scared,
Begging for your life,
Rushing into your holes,
Now just see who I am,
I am Nature,
You are not my only children,
Every creature in the ocean,
Every creature in the sky,
Are also mine,
Enough! You have created Enough Chao's,
Now you learn,
Now, you must acknowledge,
I am here to teach you control,
For human Control means self restriction and bondage,
Hence you sing 'free your mind' free your mind to what you want, irrespective how damage it is...?
