In one of my walks with my wife, Marianne, I saw 2 farmers taking turns plowing a small patch of their rice field. In the center of the plot, there stood a mango tree. Instead of removing it, they chose to have it continue to grow where it sprouted and just go around it. It will be more difficult to plow around the tree but they still chose to do so. For allowing the tree to grow, they get fruits. Similar case with how we deal with our environment. We have to make sacrifices, swallow the bitter pill so that the earth will return our sacrifices with good climate and weather. Else we suffer its ire...
