In the newspaper this morning, this sentence: « In the name of science, Westerners may have done more harm than good, several studies have found. »
Oh really?!
« Science, » of course, is not to blame. Rather, the question is: What do we do with « science »? Do we put such knowledge to destructive or constructive use?
All actions of course have consequences, and we cannot possibly know the extent of those consequences nor can we escape our responsibility for them. Yet we can do more « good » than « harm » by deepening our awareness of that, returning to the path of awakening, to our « true » or « whole » self that is not separate from all beings, living fully and freely with an open heart.
