The paradox of our time… Do you agree with me? Any suggestions / solutions?

I want to know… Do you agree with me?

Life has become a race today – a race to be the richest, the best, the famous, the greatest…

The paradox of our time is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;
Wider freeways but narrower viewpoints;
We spend more but have less. We buy more but enjoy less.

We have bigger houses but smaller families: More conveniences but less time.
We have more degrees but less knowledge: More medicines but less wellness.

We have more experts, yet more problems.
We smile too little, laugh too little, hug too little, read too little, and pray… O a very little.

We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values.
We talk too much and listen too little. We love too seldom, and hate too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life, but not life to our years.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but crossing the street to meet the neighbor is a thought inconceivable!

We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space.
We’ve done larger things, but not better things; cleaned up the air but polluted our souls.

We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice. We have more food, but less nutrition.
We communicate more but connect so less! These are days of fancier houses, but broken homes.

We read more, but learn less.


Ah! Well, so… any suggestions / solutions?

  1. Solution is in the finding of God so that people give Haqooq-ul-Ibad (rights of God’s creation). The problems given here show that our technological advances have no direct impact on our moral values which continue to be archaic. Moral values are only impacted by God through His Prophets and the successors of those Prophets.
