Modern society-A Misery
Since I was a kid, I have been taught to take responsibility. From my parents to school teachers, everybody taught me to take responsibility for something.
Each of my mentors in life taught me to compete with other human beings in life. From kindergarten to university, I kept on competing with others for something.
After I finished my education, I got good job in corporate sector. Even though I was making a good salary but my desire to possess things was never ending. I literally felt that I have been brain washed to compete and possess things by education system and other belief systems in society.
Even though I was so much indulged in trying to possess wealth, I would always give sometime to my own thinking. Being philosophical is my basic nature even though nobody taught me this.
Every day I would sit by myself quietly for one hour during lunch time while I was working for corporate sector. It was one afternoon when I went into deep meditation while sitting quietly thinking about my own life. All of sudden I felt so much love in that moment. It was literally that moment which changed my whole life.
After experiencing that moment of love, I realized that from my parents to school teachers, nobody ever taught me love. I just realized that education system teaches everything except love.
It is just lack of love that we try to possess things. It is only lack of love that we keep on trying to compete with each other. Society literally teaches human to be paid slave. Society is in fact incapable to teach anything about love since it does not know anything about freedom and love.
I was fortunate to experience that moment of love which unconditioned my brain from ridiculous conditioning of competition. But I still wonder about misery prevailing within human race in modern society.
I am sure that if a moment of love could end my misery by ending my desire to possess things and compete with others, then love would definitely change each human being in civilization.
Sharing leads to love. Division could only lead to misery.
I am sure that soon we would live in a society where everybody would share among each other instead of competing. I am sure that one day foundation of our society would be love and freedom instead of misery and slavery.
