In Being YOU! Awaken to the Abundance of Your Natural State of Being, the author acknowledges that humanity has been plagued with torment and pain throughout history, and despite attempts to eradicate the causes of suffering, hunger, famine, wars, torture, abuse, preventable illnesses, mental illness, addiction, and the over-exploitation of natural resources continue to exist.
The author believes that the only way to solve the problem is by first identifying and acknowledging that the problem is real and then developing the will to do something about it.
The author suggests that the root of humanity’s suffering lies in our beliefs, specifically the belief that we are born in isolation with nothing.
To solve the problem, the author advocates for developing compassion and loving-kindness, which require the will to seek alternative paths and routes to lead humanity out of suffering.
The author also suggests that humanity cannot afford to live in denial of its problems or have a vested interest in maintaining its suffering.
Humanity has a long history of suffering, which we have attempted to alleviate through scientific and technological advancements.
However, hunger, famine, war, torture, abuse, preventable illnesses, mental illness, addiction, and environmental degradation continue to plague us.
The author believes that the only way to address these problems is by acknowledging them and developing the will to do something about them.
To achieve this, we must first accept the presence of suffering and the need to address it. Denial perpetuates the problem, and it is essential to recognize that mental suffering is as valid as physical torture.
Furthermore, we must desire and intend to eradicate suffering, which involves developing compassion and loving-kindness towards others. Will is the beating heart of compassion and opens up pathways to alternative solutions.
However, wanting to get better is not always straightforward. Some individuals have a vested interest in remaining unwell, whether to gain attention, derive pleasure from pain, or maintain a sense of identity as a victim.
Overcoming this requires a willingness to change our beliefs and points of view.
The root cause of humanity’s suffering is our belief that we are born in isolation with nothing. This pandemic error of thought creates a sense of lack and inadequacy, leading to competition, greed, and aggression. To address this, we must shift our beliefs to recognize our interconnectedness and inherent worthiness.
In summary, to address the problem of humanity’s suffering, we must:
- Acknowledge the presence of suffering and the need to address it
- Develop the will to eradicate suffering through compassion and loving-kindness
- Overcome denial and a vested interest in maintaining suffering
- Change our beliefs to recognize our interconnectedness and inherent worthiness.
