……. There is no feeling sometimes to understand each other, and [it’s] as if we are all becoming insensitive to each other’s problem. Apart from that, those people who are intelligent and loving people, feel that people at the helm of affairs do not feel responsible for the humanity at large. Then the poverty and the other problems, which are gross, still they bother us too much: [on] one side, the affluence; another side the poverty. [On] one side, the scientific approach to life; the other side what science has created – things like atomic bombs.
All these create a kind of a confusion in our mind. Everybody seems to be confused. They don’t know whether whatever they are doing is right or wrong, whether they are going to the right path or to the wrong path. Very frustrated, disgusted, one feels sometimes and does not know why are we on this Earth.Confusion is the first impression one gets when one visits our world from outside. People are absolutely confused and also very insecure, extremely insecure. If you see the rich they are insecure because they have too much money. The poor are insecure because they have no money. All kinds of insecurities work out a tremendous world of confusion….
This confusion is important in a way. If there is no confusion we are not going to seek any solution out of it. And that is why people feel that some solution has to come out. We are confused because we have no absolute values. We have not felt the absolute values. …So, this absolute point has to be something spontaneous, something living [that] should come in our awareness. Must express in our awareness, and when we talk that word ‘awareness*’, we must understand that human awareness itself…
