Enjoy our lives, it is the purpose of life

We are increasingly becoming more chaotic in terms of our attitude, behavior, and acts in the name of development, and even people in developed countries are finding it more difficult to live in peace and happiness. There are serious questions we need to ask ourselves - do we want more development or to find a balance between development and happiness? After all, we cannot really satisfy our needs. It is like wishing to fill up the entire ocean with stones. It would be much wiser to draw a line, considering how much freedom we wish and how much liberty we want to give up in the name of progress. Unless we have proper balance, we are going to waste our most precious gift, which is our human life. Since unfortunately we cannot have both, we need to choose between liberty and being a slave to progress. Sometimes, when I look back, it seems that we have lost most of our freedom in the name of development, and unless we wake up and hold our ground, we are not going to see a happy ending. Moreover, I wonder if we are better off than our closest neighbors, because they seem to enjoy their lives, which indeed is the purpose of life.Sikkim. 18/5/13
