It is time for us to recognize that the root cause for societal ills is the erosion of human values. Each one of us needs to come forward and take responsibility to re-establish a caring and sharing attitude, a sense of belongingness, a commitment to serve -- the core spiritual values that are the basis for a healthy, happy and harmonious society.
When you're feeling troubled or lost, or simply confused about life, inner harmony is held out as a goal--a beautiful but perhaps mythical goal. How can troubled thoughts and unhappy feelings be turned into inner peace? They can't. The secret of inner harmony is that it already exists. You don't have to work for it. There is no great struggle of the soul lying in your future. Instead, inner peace is uncovered, like blowing dust off a mirror or letting the clouds pass away from the sun.
