“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.” – Thomas Edison
What does violence mean in modern times?
Mr. Edison said, “until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages”, but in today’s time, the most important living beings we’re mistreating and abusing is us and those who love us. The entire human race has become hostage to anger, hate, envy, ego, greed, lust, unnecessary needs, and attachment. As soon as we adopt non-violence in our thinking and actions, we’re sure to grow by leaps and bounds.
