I don’t buy this idea of human nature being inherently selfish, comparative, competitive, aggressive and materialistic, which is what this society often promotes.
But rather, I believe that we are wired for kindness, compassion, intimacy, connection; the nature of love that bonds us all together.
What interferes with this, is what I believe creates the disfunction in human beings, thus being what we claim as “human nature”.Our society constantly promotes selfish, egoistic behaviors.
Declaring that we are only worth our weight in what we do, or what we own.
Even our relationships are seen as possessions, which is why singleness may be scoffed at, and many of us don’t think we’re whole without someone else.
We look at people and think they’re “better” because of their possessions, or positions. But this is all a ruse to convince you that you need to have more, in order to be more.
This in essence tramples on what humanity truly is, and generates immense suffering.You ARE MORE than what you have, how you look, and what you do.
