I was originally going to make a different video tonight, but after hearing my neighbors two houses down fighting (with a toddler crying in the background), I decided to make this video instead. I wanted to explore how the states of rebirth in Buddhism are real states of being, and that people undergo these states all the time. Some of these people are living in a kind of hell now, and need help, even if they know how where to find it.
This is even more important where children are concerned because they have no control over their environment. They are thrust into a terrible situation, and that is all they will know until it is too late.
So, while I don’t have any real concrete advice about dealing with domestic violence, I do want to address people who are tormented (or tormenting others) and tell them to get help. It doesn’t always have to be like this, especially with children involved. There is a way out, and it can begin by asking for help.
