The transformation which most of us seek in the outer world involves a major shift in our attitudes, the way we deal with each other, the way we deal with money, with our environment, and of course our relationships.
There is much that each of us would need to personally let go of, which we would need to change in our individual lives and this is the real problem. Because we have mostly lived in a state of emotional fear and insecurity - regardless of whether we are politicians or social workers - we have developed ways to protect ourselves against getting hurt, and the resulting fortresses we have built around ourselves have effectively isolated us from each other.
Over the centuries this emotional fear and greed has resulted in a world where each individual lives in a closed space and protects his little territory, grabbing whatever is possible without regard to the others or to the environment. Quite simply, those of us who "have", don’t want to share our time, money and energy differently. When we find ourselves in a close relationship, we don’t want to share each other.
