I look at society around me and I ask myself this question: how is it that man, this spiritual Being, could deteriorate so much as to become nothing more than a consumer?

 

Man is constantly searching for happiness, but too often, through brief moments of pleasure and entertainment, which are temporary moments of joy, and which do not offer the lasting satisfaction he seeks. Because of that, we are all indeed a bit lost in the ever increasing standards of living. And so today, we depend on stronger stimulation of our senses, some of us more than others, of course… Paradoxically, this excess stimuli renders ours senses less and less sensitive, while our desire for stronger sensations increases. The unfortunate consequence is that today man has become so dependent on his material needs, needs that he created himself, and which for the most part, makes him incapable of enjoying the simple things in life.

How should we behave towards our loved ones who give us so much grief and disappointment? Should we stop loving them?

 

It is impossible to put an end to the love we feel for certain people. We have no control over these feelings. The only thing we have some control over is our behavior, and therefore, the influence we have on these people. We can keep this influence, change it or release it, and that’s all part of our choices. What follows once we change our behavior towards these people, that, no one is in measure to predict.

What do you think is humanity’s ultimate purpose?

 

While maintaining our individuality, for that is what makes us human, to become conscious of our divinity. To see through this egocentric experience as we pass through this dimension, and finally realize that we are all universal. To become aware that we are all made up of the elements from the Mother of all energies; Love, that force which holds and connects everything together, that unity which goes beyond all separation. Realizing that when we ‘feel’ love, in whatever way, we are but following the flow of our deepest nature. It is in pursuing this ultimate goal that we can put an end to all forms of separation. This means the end of our fears, and the end of our perpetual desire to control. This releases all the negative energy humanity uses today in its conflicting dealings with each other and the world.
