Pressing the reset button-Questioning our notions on life

With the  awareness that choosing to start the journey by looking inside helps illuminate our individual roles, responsibilities and accountability in society, the desire to change and work upon oneself becomes more compelling. Only if we can transform ourselves, can we hope to change anything outside of us. The fundamental causes of these problems lie in leading an unexamined and unquestioned life. While our educational and professional training equips us to achieve our productive potentials there is no attention to discovering our complete human potential for goodness and responsibility towards each other. A predominant focus on our economic well- being has led to a disconnection with our positive innate and universal human values. In the pursuit of our individual goals we have failed to grasp our a) fundamental sameness at the physical and emotional level, b) common humanity and interdependence and c) equal desire for happiness and well-being. This has led to a lack of oneness and connectedness with oneself, fellow humans and the rest of the world. The need of the hour therefore is to focus equally on developing people as a whole and for the whole of life. For the sake of our individual as well as collective advancement we need a bolstering of empathy, compassion, tolerance and justness. As the present Dalai Lama also reiterates, what we urgently need is an education of the heart!

An unexamined acceptance of the status quo means living under the illusion of a perfect world and we are not questioning our notions on life. This eliminates any possibility to create a better future. Join us in pressing the reset button as we once again question our notions on life-A positive dissatisfaction with the present is a constructive step to embark on our journeys for change.
