Quote of the Week

"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages."

Thank you for this quote; it's so true. I believe that true human progress lies in working towards and becoming more loving, peaceful, and harmonious with each other and all our fellow creatures.

Societies tend to focus on things like economics, technology, science, and material wealth as indicators of progress...but these are false milestones. I'm not saying that these pursuits are not valid...of course they serve a purpose. But human kind should not measure their progress as a species against them, for these pursuits don't have any transcendent meaning in and of themselves.

It is only through striving for respect for all living creatures, love for each other and the planet, and harmony within ourselves that we can become self actualized as individuals and make progress as a species.
