Super powerful video that quickly sums up the worldview that inspired me to create Live Learn Evolve. All the evenings we pursue self gratifying hedonistic activities and pretend to ignore the cancerous style to which we are destroying the Planet’s ecosystem is another day shame, guilt, judgement and sorrow will seep into our daily lives. The same fear cultivating emotional stem to which pervades habitual vices like bad diets, drinking, drugs, narcissism, porn..etc. Desperate attempts to distract the mind from facing the problems that seek individual attention and ultimately a conscious unanimity within.
Sure, we can only change the seemingly insignificant individual actions, but isn’t that the key? To paraphrase the Dalai Lama, the root cause of our global destruction is just an outward manifestation of inner values being neglected by the individual. And so, we’ll learn to end the wars and destruction in our world by ending them in our minds first.
“True happiness…is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”
