Originally living alongside nature, at some point humans have begun to seek for rather comfortable and convenient ways of life. The urban lifestyle incorporating artificial nature is causing gradual changes also in the realm of nature.
The earth on which various forms of living organisms supposedly coexist in harmony is today facing a whole catalogue of problems, such as abnormal weather and deforestation as a result of global warming and greenhouse effects, which again triggers shortages of food and the extinction of species. Radioactive pollution and nuclear warfare cause fear of the extermination of life altogether.
The planet on which we live brims over with stress, and a society in which a lot of things don’t make sense is anything but a comfortable place to live.
Man has been building up a magnificent civilized society. If we manage to arouse the wisdom that lies asleep deep down in our soul, and change our world-views just a little bit, we will surely be able to make the society of the future a peaceful one.
Now is the time to share happiness!
Today it’s Stormy Weather, but it'll certainly be clear and sunny tomorrow!
