How do we as humans navigate our lives in the complex world we have created? With the high speed in which we are bombarded with images, messages and conflicting ideas, how do we figure out how to live in the world without destroying it and ourselves? Why are we the only species that seems to be struggling to live truly healthy lives?
Masses of us are suffering with feelings of loneliness and emptiness, killing ourselves and each other despite our sense of superiority over all other species. What makes us live the way we do? How do we live better lives with a deeper connection to ourselves, others and the Earth? The answers are not locked away in a secret vault. In fact, they are much closer and simpler than you might realize, but need to know.
Inexplicably, before this moment, I had never rightfully grieved for the suffering and destruction we cause to the planet every single day. I felt extreme sadness and justifiable outrage, but like most other people, it was repressed. I am not embarrassed to admit the overwhelming emotions I felt as hot tears ran uncontrolled down my face. It felt good and right that the floodgates had opened as if a huge bandage had been ripped off my soul, finally exposing my deepest self to feel the pain in a most profound way. That pain I was feeling for the first time was the pain and suffering we were inflicting on every species on the planet. It repulsed me to think of it.
