  • Maravilloso conocer esto. Es difícil en nuestra sociedad mercantilista tomar el camino de la compasión, el tiempo dedicado a ello se ve como una pérdida.
    Nuestra sociedad actual necesitaría la transformación del sistema de relaciones económicas para facilitar realizar nuestra vida con una compasión inmensurable. Tal vez ese habría de ser el camino hoy: actuar para organizar la sociedad y sus leyes acorde a la compasión, con justicia.

    • -*-*- Nice to know this. It is difficult in our mercantilist society take the path of compassion, the time devoted to it is seen as a loss. Our society today require the transformation of economic relations system to facilitate conduct our lives with immeasurable compassion. Maybe that is the way today: act in order to organize society and laws with a compassionate way, with justice.
