People need to hear this more than ever: we have a crude and superstitious meme embedded in society, that success in life is predominantly an outcome of self-will, which allows the rich to blame the poor for their own predicament instead of facing hard facts about social inequality. Einstein knew that we are part of a dynamic, living universe. Enlightenment is the reorienting of the individual in tune with the Whole, and allows a healthy wholesome kind of thriving, instead of the monstrous, cancerous desire to dominate and control everything, which holds human beings in thrall the world over.

The actual practice of this is of course daunting, but I believe fully worth it at every stage.
