Swamiji says – At times people think that they can live and survive by themselves without depending on others.
Pause and reflect for a minute on the improbability of living solely by yourself. You will soon realise the hollowness of these claims if you are left to live by yourselves for merely a day. Are you not dependent on others for the fulfilment of your daily needs and requirements?
What about the food that you eat! Who is producing these crops and food-grains for you? What about your clothes? Who is manufacturing the garments that you wear? And your house? Where have the bricks and mortar been sourced from? Don’t you need a barber to trim your hair! Isn’t everything provided to you by others! You cannot stand for a single moment by yourself if it weren’t for the support that Mother Earth provides you with.
Elevated souls too were dependent on others for their sustenance and survival.
We should remember that we live in an itensely inter-connected world, and have a symbiotic relationship with each other!
