Society Today in Terms of Fulfilment of Comprehensive Human Goals
In order to facilitate the fulfillment of the basic aspirations of all human beings in society, the following comprehensive human goal needs to be understood. Today the state of society in terms of this comprehensive human goal is:
Right understanding in individual: We are talking about information and skills, but we are ignoring the need for right understanding, we are ignoring the need to understand happiness correctly. We are ignoring the need to understand and be in a relationship.
Prosperity in families: We are not able to see that the needs of physical facilities are limited and that, we can have more than what we need. We are only talking about how to generate wealth. We seem to have forgotten that the need to have wealth is connected with the need to keep the body healthy and use it for the right purpose and not for maximizing accumulation for the purpose of sensory enjoyment.
Fearlessness (trust) in society: In place of working for fearlessness, we are working for strategic power. In the name of defense, we are misusing the valuable resources of nature to make weapons and ammunition. We are becoming increasingly fearful of each other, so most of the countries in the world are busy preparing for war, in the hope that more and more competence for war will lead to peace.
Co-existence with nature: Instead of co-existing we are busy figuring out better ways to exploit nature. We have tended to assume that the goal of our technological development is to get victory over nature, to subjugate the entities in nature, and to disrupt nature’s cycle, in pursuance of our whims and fancies. We even have disregarded the truth that nature is our basic support system and disturbing its balance will result in our own destruction.
