Amma’s Words of Wisdom
Here are Amma’s words during a discussion about digging deeper bore wells (1200 ft vs 400ft) on Peedam lands to address the acute water shortage situation.
Amma's words to all present….
‘How sad, 1000 ft and below, why does one want the hurt and pain the earth so much; it is very sad. It is not that there is a shortage of water. This earth is millions of years old and so is the air and water. It is this very same earth that has supported so many billion forms of life over time. When so much was supported over so many millions of years, does the earth not know how to take care of the present day life forms too? It's not that there is shortage of water. The only reason is that the water has moved back closer to where it comes from! It is going further away from man’s reach. It is this and no other reason.
The pure element 'water' has been created for man for two purposes:
1) To wash and cleanse the physical body.
2) To drink and cleanse the inside so that his thoughts remain pure and his actions are good.
However, in this age this is not so. There is impurity in thoughts/actions, the agitations of the mind create negative energy and nature responds accordingly. There has been great misuse of this pure element in the form of wastage and pollution. People today don’t really respect nature's divine gift to mankind. When respect is lost and man's thought and actions are not pure, nature responds by moving the water further away from man's reach. There is no shortage; it is just not within easy reach.
Only when there is harmony, purity in thought and action and respect for nature’s gift; will the water resurface and be within each. This world is like a giant mirror reflecting and reacting to all of man's thoughts.'
