The Lost Resource - Rishona Chopra


It's July 28 today - we've just crossed into the second half of the year, but we have used up our allowance of natural resources for all of 2022.*

Every year, Earth Overshoot Day has been coming sooner and sooner.

This talks about natural resources being used quickly, but shall I tell you one resource we used so much that it is instilled in us? That resource is anger. Don't you think you have used this resource too much in the past few months or forgotten about months? Even in the past week, you might have used it, or even today, one resource we have not touched on is Happiness.

Happiness is a resource in abundance and never ends, you can use it then and now and as long as you live, but for some reason, most of us don't use this resource, which is perhaps the most essential source of life our entire life depends on.

Just like a car needs petroleum to move, our life needs Happiness to work. Today let's select and right down the times when we were truly happy. While remembering that day, let's pray today!
