[GMW #3277] Act As If Souls & Spirituality Has Surpassed Materialism

[GMW #3277] Act As If Souls & Spirituality Has Surpassed Materialism Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 3500
~ Idea 3677 ~
Former UN Secretary General U Thant often said that spirituality had to catch up with materialism, science and technology. In order to illustrate his point he used to tell the following story:

One day a party of native bearers in Africa suddenly stopped, discharged their loads, sat down and refused to go forward. When asked for the reason their leader said: "our bodies have gone too fast for our souls. We must wait for our souls to catch up with us."

I believe the whole western society should learn from that story.

If we want to enjoy the beauty and purity of life, we must not becloud our eyes, mind and heart with poisons and wrong nutrition.
