The World and Ourselves

Today our world is changing intensely and rapidly. What is the power behind it? I think it’s not any single power in particular, but the collection of thoughts and wills of each and every one of us in this world, which creates every event and moves our whole society. In a nutshell, our minds, lives and activities are all interconnected to the movements of the world we live in. In this sense, we should all feel responsible for events that incessantly occur and somehow take an interest in them.
