What makes life worth living? On the surface it appears to be financial savvy and success, gaining and wielding power, owning exclusive homes and cars and shoes ‘to die for’–living, in essence, above the masses. We might now suspect that what looked so good before is actually diseased. Nobody with a heart could do to the American people what these finance people have done.
What goes on inside those walls of ‘success’? Are values such as honesty and compassion practiced? Is there a loving, happy marriage? Are the parents connected through their hearts to their children? Have the children been raised to serve others, to make a positive difference in the world? Are company employees valued, encouraged to be creative, and respected? In many cases, the answer is no.
It is all about the foundation. We are not born to cheat people, to ruin lives, to claw and shred others’ souls on our way to the top–we are born to live with ‘heart,’ with love and forgiveness, courage and empathy. We are born to find the high road, the way to that which is beyond our little selves. We are born to expand our consciousness in such a way that we become beings of light, illuminating the path so that all may see.
