Is there something that humans just don ’ t understand about life ?

Yes – and it ’ s huge

By Neale Donald Walsch

How is it possible for seven

billion human beings to all want the same thing-safety , security , peace , prosperity , opportunity , happiness , and love-yet be unable to produce it for any but the tiniest percentage , even after thousands of years of trying ?
I pose this question wherever I appear on my speaking tours , but I rarely get a satisfactory answer .
That ’ s because most people do not understand the nature of the problem . As a result , we keep trying to solve the problem at every level except the level at which the problem exists .
First , we try to solve the problems as if they were political problems . We author legislation , we pass resolutions , we issue declarations and sign documents , we create governments and then , by vote or by force , dismantle the governments we have created-we try everything we can think of politically , and yet we are faced with the same problems
