Sometimes I feel that we will never learn to sympathize or care. Instead of feeling compassion, we will become so alienated that we will destroy ourselves one person at a time until we’re all gone.
If we consider our true nature, this is what is supposed to happen. When I think about it, I become so pessimistic that I think it would be best to convene the plenary of the United (and pathetic) Nations and agree to all push the red button at the same time and blow it all away once and for all. At the very least, we would clean the earth of humans.
If you look at the world, you see everyone—politicians, scientists, money moguls—working toward a single goal: to destroy others and not be destroyed themselves. There is no cure for our disease because we ourselves are the pathogen. Humanity is sick because we are sick in spirit. When our minds are evil, everything we do, say, or think is evil, and so is the world we have created. When I’m in such moods, I just want to fall asleep, forget about everything, and never wake up.
At the same time, I have no choice but to keep doing what I feel is my assignment, my task—to tell the world that there is a completely different way. I feel that I must make people aware that suffering is not mandatory. We can exist in a completely different way and be in a completely different state than where we are today.
We must remember that nature consists of opposites. If there is black, there is white; if there is darkness, there is light; and if there is absolute evil, and there is, then there is absolute good.
And so, for all the pessimism I sometimes feel, I know that after the darkness we are in, the light will come. We will become the opposite of who we are today.
If we are not aware that the opposite of darkness exists, it will take longer to find it. It will come one way or another, but our sages tell us that we do not have to sink all the way to the bottom to get all the way to the top if we make a concerted effort to get there sooner. We just need to recognize the evil in our nature and toil and pray to become the opposite: absolutely loving and absolutely loved.
