Universal Life - it is in this direction that we must strive

On the pretext of protecting their independence and freedom, many people refuse to participate in the collective life. Well, these people do not realize to what extent they are actually limiting themselves. Like children they move within the small circle of their feelings, their desires, and their greed. What poverty, what misery! This limited state is normal for a child, but not for an adult. Adults must show that they are able to think of others: their family first, of course, but also their neighbours, friends, colleagues, and fellow citizens. And even then, this is limited. The circle must become wider and wider, to include country, race, the whole of humanity, and still further, to encompass the universe, infinity... Rare are those who have reached beyond all these limitations, whose desires, thoughts, and interests converge on the collective, universal aspect of life. It is in this direction that we must strive.
