— Eckhart Tolle (via weareinfiniteloveconnectionn)
“The greatest achievement of humanity is not its works of art, science, or technology, but the recognition of its own dysfunction.” Recognition of its own dysfunction? I don't get it
Society is dysfunctional at large. We openly praise violence in media while we hide away expressions of love and sex. We think it is entertaining to see someone’s break down on television and we compare ourselves saying “wow they are messed up. I’m glad I’m better off than them.”
We, as individuals, are largely caught in ego and so our society reflects that, being comprised of individuals. It’s not difficult to notice.
The more of us awaken and follow compassion rather than violence, the more society will recognize its own dysfunction and move with love instead of fear.
You yourself can be part of the change.
