A simple example of a part of wild nature disappearing at cost of “cultivation”.
Here means the cultivation simply earning a living, but so many times, around the world, but I focus now at only Thailand, “cultivation” and “earning a living” expands and expands until it comes to a bad greed. Amazingly this greed doesn’t grow in the simple people who even try to help one who is in need but this cancer spreads under people not needing to be greedy, but enough is never enough for them. I don’t know enough about Buddha’s teaching, which is very, very strong in Thailand, but I don’t think this is according to His advices about our way of living.
This impression remembers me right away of the Thai nature, being destroyed up-to the present day by “developments”, encroaching (this link is ONLY ONE of the countless cases) and poaching, by steeling and eliminating countries’ nature. When one drives to the north of the country one drives hours and hours through a flat landscape once occupied by flora and fauna, by bush and wild animals, and, nearly where the still endangered but nicer nature, shows up one passes bits of hills looking like a set of teeth where a bad dentist did a destroying job caused by some kind of industry which is untouchable in lots of countries.
I have been said in Thailand already various times “you think too much”, but alla (French interjection also used in Holland), it’s me and I cannot slow down what that is concerned and cannot stop combining impressions which reached my eyes in the past with the present ones.
