The problem with humans
The problem with humans is that we see ourselves as autonomous, disconnected from the flow of time, and somehow isolated from the experience of sharing life with other living beings.
We are not.
Our minds are powerful enough to realize our own mortality, but remain too weak to notice our own immortality. We fail to realize our own expansive connection to the experience of life and the ripple effect that our lives activate across the arc of time.
Only once we wake up to the nature of life will humans possess the beauty and peace that has always been promised, has always been within reach.
The delusion of isolation is the genesis of our problems.
