(We Reap What We Sow)
Everything we do or fail to do has a consequence. If the consequence is unacceptable, we must change the behaviour. Unfortunately, this is not how many people behave. They expect the world to change to accommodate their behaviour. This expectation can start at a young age often fueled by permissive parents who fail to hold their children accountable for their dysfunctional or selfish behaviour. If their needs continue to be unmet, they may lash out at others and society in destructive ways. They adopt an attitude of entitlement and fail to accept accountability for their behaviour. This attitude is prevalent in our society including among our leaders. Einstein defined insanity as “Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
We manifest this behaviour when we identify with our ego which sees itself as the center of the Universe. The ego is an illusion. It distorts the human perception of reality and can inflict pain and suffering on others and itself. The solution is to see the ego for what it is, transcend it and connect to our true self, the spirit or Genie Within.
