Saving Kids, Patients, Victims, We need to Understand The Teaching of The Old, The Sages

Understand the teaching of the old, great men from their quotes

All in one, one in all
Children in the family, family in children
Family in the nation, the nation in family
There is no separation.
 When can we realize our real problem?
What makes people stressed? What make adults and children fall into serious stress? The answer is the problem in modern society.
 "Confusion of goals and perfection of means seems, in my opinion, to characterize our age." Albert Einstein
 "Failure is the result of major in minor things and minor in major things."   Jim Rohn         
In daily life, people try hard to perfect the tools but rarely any of them understand why they should do it. When they spent the time to do but do not know the purpose of actions, do not know why things need to be finished. Lacking purposes, they waste time and energy on minor stuff. They like to do minor things at the major time. Running out of time so they have to do major things in minor time. They get exhausted but do not achieve any worthwhile things. They work ineffectively, over time, they become angry and stressful with the conditional they made. If list down every day all the thoughts they have, the emotions they have, the belief they have, the words they talk, the ways of using time and other resources; the action and reaction they take; the experienced people reading these lists can see that most people have the pattern that leads to failure. Most people in our modern society have patterns of failure in many areas of life like financial management, personnel management, family management, health management, career management, and emotional management. The individuals with the pattern of failure will get endless problems. Most people with the pattern of failure become anger and stress with the results and problems they created. Even worse, because of anger and stress, they unconsciously create stress for their beloved, their children, their spouse, their friends, their relatives, and related people. They have blindly conditioned the negative responses in their beloved. They are creators and the receiver of the misery for themselves and their beloved.
People only care to feed the bodies, feeding the sensual feelings and casually feeding desires. They do not care to feed the mind, feeding the soul, and feeding the spiritual life. They do not care to satisfy the desire of love and connection of their beloved. They do not care to satisfy the six basic needs of other people. Reading the advice of Mother Teresa, we will know that people around us are hungry for many intangible things. We can help them by satisfying their hunger.
Mother Teresa taught:

·  “Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.”
· “Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.”
· “Love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at home.”
·  “Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.”
·  “The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.”
·  “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”      
How can we eliminate autism, depression, diseases, health problems and many social problems in our society? These are the problems or the misery in modern society. Buddha showed the real causes of the misery of people 2500 years ago. The causes are lust, hatred, and delusion. The most effective way is to satisfy or support the satisfaction the hunger of the basics needs of human beings. for love, being cared for, being wanted by people by connection and love.
Masters teach:
“Human beings are not special as they think.
Human beings are not smart as they think.”
Looking at the way of allocating all social resources, the way of rich countries allocate their money, smart people do not sure about the fate of human beings.
Any Chief financial officers of any organization see this allocation of money, and resources they will have strong gut feelings about the destination of the organization. If we still do the ways we used to do, we will end in misery and extinct sooner than we think. Any women who control the spending of money seeing the pattern of distribution of the wealthy in any family will have the gut feelings of sooner things will happen. Perhaps because of lacking the vital few, lacking trust, people are spending on weapons with the hope of keeping the peace.

Global spending on health will expect to increase to $18280 billion worldwide by 2040. The money spend on finds good feelings for the people, they may forget that they have the abilities of self-healing and the abilities to heal for their friends, spouses, relatives, and children. If we do not awake, we will end up all money for useless possessions, robots, plastic world, weapons, wars, and medication; which brings the illusion of safety, significance, relaxation, certainty, development, and contribution.

47. The Gods and religions have taught us.
Many religions have precepts similar to this teaching of the Savior. The accompanying table lists several.
Table 28: Core teaching of some religions
 What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowmen. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.
 Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.
 Surely it is the maxim of loving-kindness: Do not unto others that you would not have them do unto you.
 No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.
The Way that can be told of is not an unvarying way;
The names that can be named are not unvarying names.
It was from the Nameless that Heaven and Earth sprang;
Mastering yourself to follow Tao was true power.
I have three things to teach: compassion, simplicity, and patience.
Lao Tzu taught mastering others was the strength. Buddha 2500 years ago taught about how to end misery in life. Misery in life created by human beings. It appears in every aspect of life with the name of diseases, problems, and sufferings. In the teaching of Buddha, people suffer misery because of their lust, hatred, and ignorance.
Lustful people are so greedy for many things; they have a lot of needs. They want to possess many things, they want everything meets their expectation to have the feelings of happiness. They come to life with many wants, needs, expectations. They are obsessed with possessing many things to have happy feelings. After possessing new things, they get bored with news thing very quickly, and they start to want to have other things. Greedy people always find that they lack many things even they may live in abundance. Lustful people with a lot of desires wants and expectations are the weakest people; they will easily become disappointed with many unwanted things; they easily anger if the condition does not meet their expectations. Easily become disappointed and angry, they constantly active the process of creating the stress chemicals, their body is constantly flushed with stress chemicals. Greedy people never experience real joy and happiness. They are the people have many obvious symptoms of stress described in table three: the most symptoms of stress that we can find in many patients. If they live in abundance, greedy people are the weakest people, their happiness belongs to other people, belong to outside condition; which is constantly changing. Their unconscious mind works all day to protects her greed. They never feel the moment of peace, the moment of stillness in mind. They are the victim of their lust.

Having one car to meet your basic need can create happiness, but having five supercars to meet greed can create misery. Warren Buffet and Headed Buffet are the examples.
Satisfying the basic need creates joy and happiness, but satisfying the greed is the first step to the hell. Hell means there will be ceaseless of pain and suffering. Greedy people are the victims of their and the creators of problems around them.

When do not get things they want, greedy people become anger and stress. Their anger and stress make them feel uncomfortable; they tend to overreact to many normal things. Their greed, anger, and stress make them hate many things; these are like dark clouds covering their eyes. They only feel irritation, anger, and hatred in many things come to their life. The mind is always arousing with the thought of future, the experiences in the past. They are rarely present to enjoy life. The thick dark clouds covering their eyes make them blink with many beautiful things next to them, or precious things under their feet. The thick dark cloud may blind the eyes, deafen the ears, dull the taste and blunt the thinking; they may make unconscious behaviors; their behaviors are controlled by the negative emotion, by the greed and the hatred. Most of the time, these behavior causes wounds, stress and make hurt to other people. They themselves are not only the victim of their lust and hatred but also they are the creators of the misery, problems, and diseases for their relatives and their society. Unfortunately, they rarely realize the situation to stop their lust and hatred.
The root of lust and hatred come from their ignorance. From the ignorance create a lot of the wrong delusions, and delusion makes them blind to the condition. The more ignorant people are, the better delusion makes them feel. Delusion blinds people’s eyes, ears, tastes, thinking so that they do not have any concern about the misery they create for themselves and other people. Even worse, delusion makes people misunderstand that their wrong behaviors are good actions, the actions of justice. Their ignorance may delude them to make crucial actions, create destructive weapons, kill hundred people, create extreme stress for others, destroy the environment and destroy human being without any hesitation. The history of the world was full of the tragedies caused by ignorant people. The people with lust, hatred, and ignorance have conditioned with crucial responses by themselves or the condition of living.
 We, the people of modern society still have lust, hatred and ignorance; which may cause many diseases, problems and misery in the family and society.
How do we can stop making wrongs behaviors? By reduces the needs to the basic needs; by control, the emotion, control the anger as soon as possible; by destroy ignorance, remove delusion; step by step, we can reduce the misery in our society. With the poor, the disabled, the miserable people they have very few needs, few desires but they are still very miserable. The solution for them is keeping the basic needs, develop themselves to become strong and smart enough that they can create the wanted changes in the condition of living, which satisfy their basic needs. I will discuss how to overcome lust, hatred, and ignorance in the next sections.
These teaching of the old help us understand the characters of our potential mind. When we gain the right understanding, we will know how to master the mind and stay away from its traps.
Will the human being be extinct or where they will go?
According to Buddha, all we suffer is from our hatred, anger, and ignorance.
According to Socrates, we suffer because we lost human virtues, natural virtues.
According to Benjamin Franklin, all our suffering comes from a lack of virtue, and from a discontent mind.
