It is a well-known and experienced fact that the atmosphere of a place is governed by its surroundings. If a place has a number of factories with harmful gasses emission, the atmosphere gets polluted, the people living at the place gets infected with various typical diseases, the trees dry up, birds migrate, the sky turns gray and so on.
Another aspect of the atmosphere is the environment. What is the difference between Atmosphere and Environment? An environment is a subtle part of Atmosphere which is composed of thoughts and deeds. A place with a good atmosphere might have a bad environment like terrorist hit beautiful states. A polluted environment can make one depressed, anxious and unrestful. We all know the harm one has to bear due to the polluted atmosphere, but have we realized the harm one has to bear due to the polluted environment? A polluted environment is far more hazardous and serious than a polluted atmosphere.
The pollution in the environment cannot be felt by the five senses rather it directly hits the subconscious mind. Positive people living in an area makes the environment pure, peaceful and light through good thoughts and deeds. Similarly, negative people living in a place makes the environment polluted, unrestful and heavy.
As a society, we are very well able to understand the problem in the atmosphere due to pollution, growing industry, vehicles etc. But are we paying enough attention to the growing subtle pollution due to negative thoughts in our environment? Tension is growing at a rocket fast speed. Young kids are getting diseases of heart, diabetes, and cancer.
