As Dalai Lama said “People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used.”
It is clear that the world and societies we live in encourage more consumption, selfishness and loneliness. The more we get lonely, the more we will feel dissatisfied, and the more we will consume. In order to remain a part of the system, it is aimed to lose our humanitarian side become more materialistic and eventually enslave.
On the other hand, it is very normal to have financial expectations and goals from life. However, when we are on the way to achieving these goals, being kind to our colleagues, partners, classmates, employees of the store we shop, people we meet during the day is more important. Staying connected with our loved ones and the people around us reminds us that we carry our true values with us on this journey. Because moving away from our humanitarian side makes us unhappy most, and the real chaos unwittingly manifests itself as dissatisfaction in our inner world.
Therefore, the way out of this impasse created by the world’s new system and preventing the chaos we are already in is not to lose our humanitarian side by staying connected to each other.
