There is so much truth in that its incredible. I especially liked when he said we have “more knowledge but less judgement” and “more experts and more problems”.
It goes to show a couple things:
1. We’re a therapy culture. We wait till theres something wrong and then try to “put a bandaid” on it rather than go to the root of the problem. And 99% of our problems are internal problems attracting the external “problems” that we’re paying 100s of $1000s of dollars trying to fix.
2. We value plain regurgitated information that we learn in school, over insightful thinking which actually makes a difference in your life. The other just gets you a better job. It doesn’t get you any closer to spiritual or emotional enlightenment, which gives you true fulfillment in life.
It really goes back to the point that the only way I believe the world will really change is when we have a shift in consciousness to realize whats truly valuable in this world. Most of all that we strive for is mainly wrapped around our ego, which keeps up chasing external “solutions” to happiness and fulfillment all our lives when the thing that we were looking for was already inside of us the entire time.
It just takes some humility, and awareness to see and choose it.
