Our Role in the World... (Philosophy :-)
So what are we doing here?
What is our role in life?
The principal I've been trying to hammer into our kids (and myself) is that we're here to make the world a better place.
But, the way to do it is not by trying to fix other people - but instead work to improve ourselves, and as a result "induce" the world to improve.
It's interesting that in Hebrew, the word "Hashra'a" is used for both "induce" and "inspire"...
So inspire the world to improve, by improving yourself.
To paraphrase Michael Jackson, Heal Yourself - Make the World a Better Place...
