Worldly View

We can’t avoid it.  We’re part of it.  It’s with us everyday because we live in it…the world, that is.

Here’s the problem, though, as I see it.  We’re not doing a very good job of living in it.  Wherever you look…  East, West,  North,  South…the view is pretty much the same.  Human suffering brought on by human failings.  Is it just me or do you also feel it seems to be getting worse almost by the day.

What happened to the concept of live and let live?  Where did civility go?  Why does there seem to be such a lack of respect for human life?  Why are differences seen as threats rather than opportunities for deeper understanding?  When will people live up to a fundamental principle of anyone of the world’s great religions:  in essence, love thy neighbor.  When will governments responsibly govern rather than slaughter?  What will be the fundamental change in human thinking that will finally bring people together?  When?

Obviously, I don’t have any of the answers or I probably wouldn’t have asked the questions.  But, the Dalai Lama has a thought that could be a start toward the world-wide change that is needed.

“The best relationship is one where your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.”  Now, that’s a worldly view that could be the needed catalyst for change, don’t you think?
