A Destroyed World - Rishona Chopra

What can destroy the world or what has destroyed the world?

What could the answer be pollution, poaching, war or what? Wait, is it the Covid -19? No, it's none of them but the root cause for all of them…ego.

Ego has a lot of pride, which leads to greed, selfishness, jealousy, and ultimately leads to anger. All these things whose root cause is ego can destroy the world. In fact, they have.

Greediness leads to war, followed by destruction. Having greed also means being selfish. Just care about ourselves, and when we are selfish, we don't care about animals and nature and start polluting it. We think we are the most incredible creatures on Earth, and without us, nothing can live. We are so wrong. I would like to share a few lines from the poem "There Will Come Soft Rains" by Sara Teasdale.

Not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly.

These lines written by Sara Teasdale say that mankind would perish because of war, but nature will continue. We are just a part of this world, but God's most beautiful and dependent creation is nature.

Now that we know the root cause of this trouble and why having an ego is really for stupid reasons, we have to change that.

'The ego seeks to divide and separate. Spirit seeks to unify and heal.'

'Ego is just a small three-letter word, which can destroy a big twelve letter word called relationship.'
