True Joy

What happened to honesty, and trust? We are becoming a society lacking trust in everyone. Today we presume that one is lying unless absolute proof is given.  We cannot leave our doors unlocked, or our windows open, for fear of being burglarized. We cannot let our children outside without supervision. We have so much security in place, costing millions of dollars. The time devoted to this prevention is enormous.  We lose many of our freedoms to protect ourselves from evil. Imagine what the world would be like if we could spend this money on improving our lives, and how much extra time we would have to enjoy this precious earth.

How do we begin to make a community where we can leave our cars unlocked without it being stolen, where violence is unheard of?  Does it start with our religions? How often have religions expounded on the elimination of greed or arrogance now, instead of teaching about our personal salvation in the afterlife? How often have you heard that true joy only comes from helping others on this earth? The pursuit of happiness for the individual often results in disappointment, and sorrow. It is only when we help others that true joy is attainable.

Let us begin to make this world better by helping others, and let God take care of what happens to us in the afterlife. Remove greed and arrogance from your hearts!
