Know how impulsive buying, only to satisfy the needs is harming you.
Everything Is Interconnected
For a moment, let us make you realize how dependent you are. When you get up in the morning, the day’s light and energy is provided by the Sun. The brush needed to clean your teeth is made by another human being. The air that you breath is dependent on the plants and maintained by the Earth’s atmosphere. The water that you drink has its natural roots of creation and is dependent on rain and glaciers.
The food that you eat is created by nature, transported by another human being and served on your plates, made by someone. The burner’s heat for cooking is dependent on nature. The art of cooking and adding spices is passed on from someone else to you. The roof on your head is someone else’s effort, the TV you watch is someone else’s contribution.
Even the money that makes you feel you own things is created by others, given to you by your employer or customer, has value because it is accepted by others. Without others and everything around provided by nature, you cannot exist. Your entire existence is because of dependence.
The problem is that independence is given so much importance that co-existing has become a long forgotten mindset. Karma is not a religious concept. It is scientific in the way that me getting impacted, impacts you due to interconnectedness.
So, give up the illusion of being independent and embrace co-existence. Thus, making businesses a co-dependent ecosystem and not a way of exploitation of each other and natural resources. Become aware and conscious!
Is There A Need To Make Any Change?
No. There isn’t. (Being sarcastic)
No. Because The World Is Perfect As It Is
There are no personal, societal or environmental challenges. No poverty, no global warming, no discrimination, no pollution. Everything is in perfect harmony in nature and society.
Forget about others and society, you are also perfect. Feeling in harmony and peace and joy in this perfect world. You feel energized getting up in the morning and living your life.
You are in utopia and there is no need to change or work towards change. There is no scope of improvement.
No. Because The World Problems Do Not Impact You Personally.
You are privileged in this world to not be impacted by any of the challenges, if at all it exists. You have the resources financial and otherwise to get what you want and protect yourself and your loved ones.
How about if due to some ailment, your one hand stops functioning. Would you like to get an artificial hand, more advanced that your existing with all the money and resources.
How about losing a loved one? Would you like to get a robot created or more advanced, a clone of your mother with all the qualities and characteristics of your mom. Would you like to buy her love that can be induced as a hormone to make you feel that love.
We humans are emotional and feeling beings. How about you getting a dose everyday to feel good despite your internal family disputes, no friends, people abusing you, disrespecting you.
How about living? What if you are placed in a fantastic cabin where you can live the life you imagined under simulation till eternity? No problem and no impact on you at all because of all the resources available.
However, another person wants to have friends, live every moment knowing he is going to die and work towards becoming better. Is that another person you, living under simulation?
No. Because The Change Is Difficult. Let it be for now.
You have been living in a certain way your entire life. Even though you feel change may be needed, you find it difficult to pay the price for change. Changing the old beliefs, old habits and behavior.
You want to exercise and reduce weight, you want to start some new project but keep postponing. Let’s keep changing the world aside.
But you are also the one who wake up every morning. You eat, do some activities, sleep and repeat every single day and you have been doing it for your life and will do it till you die. That is a great consistency you have in you!

Don't Care About Environment And Society, Care About You!
