The Paradox of our Age

In these days of fast foods and slow digestions …

We have more degrees, but less common sense; more knowledge; but less wisdom; more medicine, but less good health; we have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values; we have been working hard to weighten our purses; but unfortunately we let our hearts lighten;

We always have enough time and information to talk about film stars and cricketers etc. ; but we have not enough words of love and time to share with our parents, relative and friends;

We have enough time and patience to watch movies and TV serials; but not enough time and patience to listen to the lectures and few words of wisdom;

We have enough friends to chit chat with, we have enough friends to play with, we have enough friends to share our vulgar thoughts and moments with, we have enough friends to waste our time, money and energy in different ways; but we hardly have enough friends to have profitable and constructive talks; we hardly have enough friends whom we can call them as our true and best friends;

We have enough money to satisfy our own esteem needs but not enough money to serve other people’s basic needs;

We have enough knowledge to understand the most difficult theories of physics and embedded systems; but not enough knowledge to understand the most common human feelings and emotions;

We have enough words to blame each other as the one I am doing now, but not enough words to appreciate one another. 

We have developed enough science and technology to solve all kinds of technical problems, but unfortunately not enough wisdom to solve the basic human problems;

We have enough religions to hate and fight with each other; but unfortunately not enough religions to love each other;

In this material world, we read more, understand less; we eat more, digest less; we earn more, enjoy less; we seek more, share less; we lie more, love less; fight more, forgive less; we act more, think less; neglect more, care less; talk more, listen less; receive more, give less; we preach more, practice less; and   We have learned to make a living, but not a life; here,

We are just adding years to life, but not life to years.

Please, Think about this.
