We lost it, the sense of oneness..
Everyone is pretending to be the one, the big self, detached from others.
The greed and jealousy have overcome love.
I can see it when I look at my "friends"...I can smell the ferocity, the will to fight others in order to become the best of all.
You can see it in schools where students would kill themselves for better grades.
You can see it at work where people would kill their colleauges in order to get a better paid job position.
Just think about it, how many real friends do you have? When I say real I mean people who would hold your back and stand behind you regardless of your
social or economic status.
How many people around you are not just using you for some benefit of theirs?
...and how many poeple do you purely love just because of their mere existence?
You see, the society has spoiled our feelings because the number of real friends we are talking about here is very close to actual ZERO.
We think in terms of achievements, plans, numbers and we literally fight for money.
We are schemers, we don't do things 'just like that' anymore. We don't appreciate the mere existence and we don't love because of no reason.
We are f**ked up.
But remember, the error occured in the entire system and 'the western society', yet it is the system that is not broken, it was built this way.
Empathy, that is what we lack.
