Twin quake hits Mexico and Indonesia

I was shocked when I saw the news about the earthquake that stuck near the city capital of Acapulco yesterday. News of 7.4 magnitude earthquake in Mexico quickly spread which prompted me to email my colleague living in Mexico City. I didn’t know until I watched TV Patrol that another country was rocked, a few minutes earlier than Mexico, by 6.2 magnitude and the epicenter was reported in the hilly rolls of Papua, easternmost province of Indonesia.

After Japan and now these two Pacific countries, I cannot help but wonder if nature is taking its revenge or it starts cleansing itself. There was once (and still) a popular theory that Mother Earth heals itself. As we continue to abuse nature and destroy biodiversity, we are triggering a chain reaction that will result to drastic change in the environment we are living in. Do you know that Canada, thousands of years ago, was a vast frozen land? Nothing can prevent that from happening again so we have to protect what we have now.

Give it thousands of years, the Earth we know now will be different. Look at some geological maps to see how Earth looks like thousand years ago. Earth will continue to change and we should learn to adapt to it as well.

We call our Supreme Being in different names, but may Allah and God keep these countries safe, help families recover from their losses, and may the departed be at peace.

    The tsunami incident last year in Japan just recently turned 1-year. It’s actually quite scary that an earthquake hit Japan again just weeks back. More so this latest news on Mexico. These are pretty scary events. =(

    I have to admit, I did not hear about this because I rarely watch the news on television.

    This does not mean though that I don’t care for current events, but it gives me unnecessary anxiety.

    What I personally do to counteract such anxieties brought about news and current events is to observe mindfulness in living.

    I’m afraid of natural calamities, and I can’t change things like I would love to i.e. prevent them from happening in a wide scale or help save thousand of lives.

    What I can do though is make a little effort, being mindful how I live on this earth, and pass it on to our girls. It seems little but if each of us would be mindful of what Mother Nature gives us, then perhaps we could collectively make a huge difference.

    ALARMING as it is,
    earthquake is nature’s way of telling us to be mentally aware that anytime it can strike without warning.

    it shakes our spirits and whenever we experience tremor, we somehow kneel and call upon GOD for help.

    There’s been a lot of reported earthquakes lately…saddening and frightening since we don’t really know where and when will be the next. I just wish that all of us be a little more Earth loving so we’ll not suffer in the end. Ground shaking on its own is a loud wake up call.
