In my humble opinion…
The world’s problem is with humanity. And humanity’s ‘only’ problem is that we live unconsciously.
We spend our days avoiding how we really feel, trying to dodge talking about emotions and we attempt the impossible, to escape from ourselves. Escaping from ourselves becomes our hobby.
But we can’t name it as such..hence the need for distraction. It can be in whatever form. Alcohol, work, Facebook, video games, drugs, sex, sleep, gossip, other people’s business, thinking about the past, worrying about the future etc etc etc… we are addicted to distraction. Distraction is our comfort zone. It is safe or so it appears to be…until we wake up.
But then again, what do I know?! I could be unconscious myself and don’t even know it.
