  1. All things are moving to fast. The day just vanish with out giving it a thought . So, nature is moving in the same speed. To fast. It is damaging. So, because we move to
    fast in our daily life it is damaging our own existence. We are all sick of the stress of the day. Only and only a total catastrophic event will slow us down and restore the harmony In on our planet. In that harmony then we become true dwellers of the earth as God wanted us to be.
