When you look around you, read the newspapers, or watch the news on TV, what do you see? You see people of various nations, religions and groups, some living in harmony with others and some not in harmony. Some hate or fight each other, and others try to live in peace.
You see people with problems, living with anxiety or stress, and also people with aspirations, hope and ambitions.
Everyone thinks and looks at the world through the mind – ego – mental programming. It is like looking at the world through colored eyeglasses. Every person lives within his/her small world, which is often the only reality for him/her.
Did you try to get out of this small world, to expand your consciousness beyond it? You don’t need money to do so, or travel to some distant place. You may have had a glimpse of this inner expansion if you practice meditation.
What happens when you read about far away stars and galaxies? What happens when you see pictures from outer space? Do you feel how small Earth is and how petty and not so important are all problems, ideas, ambitions, desires, feelings and thoughts that come from the ego, and all the events on this planet?
