One of the most difficult things we have to go through in this life is having to let go of things. Attachment is carved so deep into our soul that we actually feel like we own the entire universe.
That sense of ownership and competitiveness have been making real damage to our society for quite a long time now.
For example, we believe we own our children. Our sons and daughters are not ours, they are not our property. They have arrived to our life to teach us to be better and to evolve at the same time they receive our guidance and love. But they are independent of us and we need to stop treating them as if we owned their lives.
Another example is when we drive. We have forgotten that we are SHARING the streets with other people, we do not OWN the road, so we don’t need to use avenues, streets, motorways, etc., as if they belonged to us and we were the only ones with the right to use them. We all have the same right of transit.
On the other hand, educating children to be “competitive” is no longer a virtue. We need to remember that a competition implies to win something over others and we no longer need to do that, since we have learnt that there is enough of everything for everybody.
Have you noticed that the new generation of businessmen are forming alliances now instead of trying to destroy their “competitors”?
