"Whatever the failings of a society, it is not advisable to solve them with violence. Some people may say, ‘But when everything needs to be changed, violence is necessary.’ No, and first of all we must never confuse change with upheaval. It is never by means of violence that true change can be realized. In fact, it has often been observed that violence always brings about greater evils than those it claims to cure. In truth, making change in society is the responsibility of every one of us. No matter how highly placed or powerful, no single person can proclaim, ‘From now on there will no longer be any injustice, nor crime, nor poverty, and so on.’ If someone attempts to do so, the results will not be long-lasting. Whether for good or for evil, no one has ever succeeded in affecting permanent change. True change can occur only when individuals decide to begin to transform themselves, for then each person becomes a valuable and constructive agent for all."

Note: This insight came to mind during a conversation on social media with who I consider two mindful and enlightened souls. It is an original insight and quotation that I have officially published for the first time on my blog today, the 5th of December, 2018.

This was taught to us in primary school. The opposite view is in effect now. It's all about me and my feeling and my comfort without any thought of community and people wonder why the world is headed in the direction or better said, the mis-direction that it is.
One of those rules that is about the survival and continuation of human community.

Chefs, caterers, bakers and all those people who prepare food for their families on a daily basis must know this law. With this knowledge they will then get into the habit of touching food, aware that what they are holding in their hands will contribute to building a healthy body for people nearby and far away, those known and unknown to them. This is a huge responsibility and it is therefore worthwhile for them to be in the best inner state when they prepare food, fostering thoughts of good health, peace and light for those who are due to eat it."
