Reflections

"Having lived in many different countries, and after many interesting experiences of other cultures, religions, and above all, of different people, I have come to the conclusion that the differences between us are actually just a very thin, superficial layer, and that underneath there exists a dimension where we are all equal and where we share the same basic need to feel good about ourselves and others.

I have also become convinced that the lack of peace and harmony in the world is a collective expression of an individual inner turmoil and anxiety that most people live with today.

An old Chinese proverb says:
When the soul is nourished, the person becomes beautiful,
when the person is beautiful, the home becomes harmonious,
when the home is harmonious, the country becomes orderly,
when the country is orderly, the world becomes peaceful.



Despite the advanced technological development and vast financial resources, humanity has not been able to develop a way of living and working that makes most people healthy and happy. We strive to get a good education and to get a well-paid job, and we work hard to satisfy our needs.

However, too many people feel stressed, exhausted and dissatisfied, and the number of people living with anxiety, depression or chronic illness is constantly increasing. Many people live with a constant and frustrating feeling that life is not as it should be, without being able to point out what is missing.

The upbringing and education we received taught us how to study and produce, but in many ways not how to live. Transformed into human "doings", we live absorbed by the rational and material (and digital), with little time for our emotional and spiritual needs. We lose touch with the deeper dimensions of life and thereby miss the opportunity to live with the awareness of our common humanity and the universal connection that exists between everything and everyone.

The result is a world full of "malnourished souls" who are unable to show their true, constructive nature, and instead express themselves in a distorted way through depression, anxiety, stress, illness, conflicting families and unjust and inhuman societies. It is as if humanity is an orchestra with almost 8 billion instruments trying to play harmoniously together, but the result is mostly noise and very little harmony because the majority of the instruments are out of tune.

The changes needed to create a better world must therefore begin with an individual, personal development process where each one of us does what is necessary in our personal and professional lives to "tune the instrument" so that we become better at creating harmony together.

We must learn to create families, workplaces and communities where the soul can be nourished. When each individual takes the initiative to feel better about themselves, both physically and mentally, it becomes possible to achieve a better world.

Instead of fighting against the darkness, it's wiser to light a candle".
