We have potential to be a human being.

Are you a human being??? You will know whether you are after you look at the following example below: Most of the people get nurturing by their parents right after they were born. After that, they were sent to school for education. The purpose of study is for a brighter future, a brighter future means can earn a lot of money. The purpose of earning money is can buy ourselves a home, car and many more. After that, find a life partner and give birth to the next your generation. Next, get your next generation to follow your path in the past; let them educate, earn money, get married and give birth. On the other hand, u get retirement and enjoying life. Lets put in a bluntly way, retirement and enjoying means wait for death. Almost all of the people gone through these path and experience the same things. We continue to do the same things ever and ever again and past to our next generation to continue the same things we have done. So, we are not human being, we are robot!!!

Oftentimes our potential is based more on the time and place of where we are at than any innate ability. The situations that we are born under will determine greatly what our lot in life will be. Yes it may seem slightly robotic, but if we want the luxuries of life we have to engage in at least some of societies rules. What we can do though is remind ourselves that this physical material world is just surface and not the entire truth. When more people realize his and start seriously exploring the truth and not just the surface, I think you will se a change.
