Green valley – haiku

Two dogs and a cat
Stroll in joy, breathing sweet air
In a green valley.

How big is my dream of having a green valley? So big…. Why? Because I want as many animals as possible to live happily in the valley, as many farmers as possible to earn good living in the valley,  and as long as the earth can sustain the valley stays green…. And, so be it with faith….

Never Stay Put

Arriving from Penang yesterday, I’m now packing for another visit to Penang (again) tomorrow. Not being so keen to Penang (except the durian), having some fun in Singapore for weekend is preferable than Penang (doing some laundry, tidying up the room, hugging my dear stuffed animal dolls). Going back from Penang, I’ll be in Jakarta for a very short while (meeting some friends, seeing Moppy & others). After that I’ll be to a couple of other destinations before finally stationary in Singapore until mudik (visiting hometown) to my mom’s town, Tulungagung.

Some friends would ask me when to stop traveling. Should I stop? It’s an enjoyment to meet people from different places in which they are…. Maybe someday traveling will only be for visiting poeple needing my healing supports – but not now, not yet.

However, today I’ve been thinking of stopping for a while, doing nothing in a day or two, staying put in one official residence. But in vain…

Please know that I’m living on earth, a plane(t) that constantly travels around the Universe…. So why bother listening to those suggesting me to stay? We’re traveling together.

Gaia Sophia

Dear Mother Earth,

For years this plane has lingered on your generosity,
Enjoying the life with almost no edge.
And, today — just today — the mind remembers again
That you’ve been not only generously nourishing
But also wisely enriching.

If ever this plane has to unite with you,
Please accept it with love.
Please embrace it with warmth.
Please absorb it with positive sensitivity.
Please grow with its pure zest.
And, please send it as best regards to the Heavenly Father above….

Dear Mother Earth,

That this plane is later meaningless for the Soul
Is a different story.
But please know that the Soul is of knowingly aware about what is happening to you.
You are being tortured,
You are being cracked,
You are being sucked,
You are being destroyed,
You are being malnourished,
You are being negatively treated….
By your children through the devilish thought
That has stealthily been occupying you for an evil sake.

Dear Mother Earth,

The center of my plane orbit….
Please stand still.
Please breathe calmly.
Please be tough
Yet be soft.
Please be knowing that you are still loved,
Still protected.
Still be synchronized.
Still be cared.
By some children of yours
Who nourish themselves with your wisdom.

Please be still Gaia Sophia.

Animal Welfare

Many people love animals. They have pets by buying animals from petshop, getting from family or friends as gift, adopting animals from shelters or simply taking the animals from the road. Do they love animals indeed?

Yes or no….

Owning animals is not number one indicator of loving animals. The main indicator is how they treat the animals. So, after they bring the animals home, what will they do? Just putting them outside the home since they are just animals? Or, they let those animals stay inside the home as family?

More than that: do they provide good and healthful food for the animals or just throw rubbish to the animals?

Do they give good health service to the animals? Vaccine, neuter, deworm, shampooing or bathing, teeth cleaning, etc…. Please care about it.

Do they let the animals suffer from anything uncomfortable? Give them good place to sleep on. Spare them enough space. Do you know that in many petshops animals are kept in very small cages that make them go crazy. Please know this, consider this. Be loving to your pets…. Even to any animals.

Do they let those animals be animals? What is letting animals be animals? It is simply not putting clothes to them. Some people think dressing their pets is upgrading the dignity of those animals? No, it is downgrade their dignity, friends. And, at the same time making the animals into inconvenient situation: they feel hot especially animals in tropical climate. So, do you still want to keep the cats and dogs or rabbits etc in your stupidly-chosen clothes? Please stop entertainig yourselves by forcing human’s culture to animals.

This is a whining of today…. I’m grumbling because I think I haven’t done enough to animals for their welfare. Not only me, but many people are so ignorant to animals just because they are animals.

So, let’s change our mindset. Animals are our fellow creatures who logically only lacks ability to anallyse, who physically aren’t developed like us, who genetically outnumber in DNA. So, basically we have many same components making them deserve to be treated justly, well and with love and care.

Time to realize what we can fix. Love them. Please stop being violent to them. Show that we are the caretaker of this universe by respecting our fellow creatures.

If you really hate animals, no need to express your hatred. Please just halt and don’t do harm to them.

Oh, how tiring it is to see that this earth is full of people treating animals badly.
