Imagine when the only life form that exists is you.
No other life forms for light years. none in the universe
Life has ceased to exist and never will.
Nothing to live for
Nothing to die for.
Nobody to hate
Nobody to care about
Nothing to do but wander the wilderness
There would be nothing in the bucket list
Perhaps it is bliss
But perhaps in their absence, do we understand the significance of others.
It is thanks to them that we make progress, celebrating successes and failures together
It is only when we collaborate with love and peace and are compassionate i.e share the sufferings do we progress.
It is the only thing to work for, it is the reason to exist. It is the one of the biggest reasons we have continued exist.
It is the only reason we made great strides.
We humans are in pursuit knowledge, but many of us trying do without reason or just for purely self satisfaction. None of those reasons are wrong, but they defeat the purpose of attaining knowledge. Knowledge can only make impact if its shared.
Once we realize the only reason to live, learn is for others.
Once one realizes that it is out of compassion that we exist, learn and make progess, he/she has transformed and escaped the pointless rat race. It is then, that one only values, compassion. It is then that social status, money has no significance. It is then that jealousy ends. The only greed and hunger is to learn and do more.
As Martin luther king rightly said-
"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity."
Fortunately, i learnt this lesson unconsciously as a neighbour of mother teresa. I met her when i was 3
Are nuns, monks jealous of each other? Nope, the only thing they care about is others.
Their only greed or hunger is to learn and do more for others.
I'm a thinker, dreamer, doer and a strong follower of stoicism. I have a passion to learn and apply that to make the world a better place.
