Indeed, you have little notion of what exists beyond your boundaries. The world is like a village that has never been touched by the outside world. Preoccupied it is with its own difficulties and concerns. People in the village are very concerned, but ignorant. And as the outside world encroaches upon this village, does it not begin to feel the stress of this? And do not its divisions become manifested as it looks outward? It is a fair analogy. This world is a tiny village, preoccupied with itself, as when you were a tiny child preoccupied with yourself. And was not growing into adulthood difficult, with many disappointments and times of stress? And did not your parents look upon you, in wisdom perhaps, and remark that it was a difficult age to pass through as you became part of something greater, responsible for something greater and accountable to something greater?
