20170712點滴造福護大地 Cultivating Blessings and Wisdom by Giving with a Joyful Heart

Are you filled with joy? (Yes.) You’re filled with joy when seeing me. I’m also filled with joy. Do you know why? Because I’m happy to see you gather here. By getting together, we bring joy to one another. Having a heart of joy brings us blessings. Indeed, by harboring a heart of joy, we’ll be blessed to lead a safe and peaceful life.

Although it’s impossible to live in joy every day, I’m filled with joy every day recently because I can see you all, who are living bodhisattvas. Living bodhisattvas are blessed and wise. They are blessed as they are sowing blessings, by going amongst the crowds to serve. They’re wise as they can tell right from wrong, and always do what is right and beneficial.

When we see something is right, then we should do…? (Just do it.) You’ve truly drawn your hearts close to mine. You know what’s on my mind and can finish my sentence. Indeed, when something is right, we should just do it. When we do something right, what do we manifest? (Wisdom) That’s right. Wisdom is what living bodhisattvas cultivate in daily life. 

Just now, I learned that one of our commissioners invited a senior volunteer to see me here. The senior volunteer responded that he actually sees me every day, and that he’s filled with joy when doing so. He makes it a habit to see me every day. In fact, every day, you can see me in your home.

As long as you wish to see me, you can see me on our Da Ai TV with just a click on the remote control. So, it’s very easy for you to see me. The moment you point your remote control towards the TV, and press a button, I will be in your presence in no time. 

Just now, I also saw a large choir consisting of our volunteers aged over 70 or 80. Their instructor, Mr. Hu, teaches them how to sing with dedication, patience, and sincere piety. Though it is a large choir, and its members are all advanced in age, they sang Tzu Chi songs in perfect sync.

They sang the songs not for entertaining purpose. Rather, they aimed to inspire people to give rise to sincere piety and emulate the hearts of bodhisattvas. They also sang a Tzu Chi song to vow to embrace and care for all living beings. See how they have a broad heart and feel for the suffering in the world. Indeed, suffering is not uncommon in life.

Nevertheless, we can still find a way out. Oceans are so vast, and the sky seems infinite. So, if we open up our hearts, we can turn suffering into bliss and take a farther step to benefit people by giving of ourselves. What can we do to quell disasters and sow blessing? In fact, as long as we see things from a different perspective, much of the suffering will be gone.

Suffering is often inevitable. If we can’t find a way out, we’ll be entangled in the suffering. And if we’re entangled in the suffering, our hearts will get attached to it and we will suffer even more. So, we must find a way to end our suffering and cultivate blessings. It’s of no use to pray to deities for blessings. Only when we do good can we cultivate blessings.

Just think. If we have no savings in the bank of course we cannot withdraw money from it. So, if we wish to cultivate blessings, we need to give of ourselves to serve. To sow blessings, we should give rise to good thoughts every day, because harboring good thoughts, we’ll become spiritually rich, and spiritual wealth is a true blessing to us.

What is the treasure of Taiwan? It is love and goodness. See how our volunteers sow blessings every day, by giving with love and goodness.

They are living bodhisattvas who give with enlightened love and give of themselves to protect the Earth. Each of our recycling stations has its unique features, but the shared goal is to recycle discarded items and transform them into something useful. It’s truly touching to see that our volunteers have spread love from their families to Mother Nature and all of humanity.

Also, they do recycling with such joy and they give rise to wisdom by learning how to turn the recyclables into useful things. By recycling discarded items, we won’t deplete natural resources and we can protect our Earth for the well being of future generations.

We all need to do our part to protect the Earth so that if we can come to this world again as human beings, we can have clean planet abundant with grains and crops. A life of peace and abundance without suffering from natural disasters is a true blessing to everyone in the world.

To achieve this goal, we need to give of ourselves every day, insignificant as our everyday efforts may be, they will add up to benefit humanity. So, we should think highly of what we do every day because we’re bringing blessings to people by doing so.

Everyone, seeing you fills my heart with joy. I hope that the affinity between you and me can last lifetime after lifetime. Do you all hope so, too? (Yes.) I hope that you can always be healthy, give with love, and recycle with joy so as to inspire people to protect our earth together. Can you all do that? (Yes.) Very well. Thank you all.
