Freedom and Responsibility, Talks with Swami Nityamuktananda Saraswati

The dynamics between me and others (a yogic perspective)

Freedom and responsibility; the dynamics between me and others. (a yogic perspective)
We live in a world, where technical advances are enormous. It’s a great achievement, of the human mind. Yes..but that is based on one aspect of our mind, in one aspect of our brain only: i.e. the neo-cortex. The more technical orientated, meaning the more material orientated our lives become.. we have to acknowledge that it is actually progress only in the outer world, whereas mankind regresses, we lose the unique potential we have as human beings (pre-frontal lobes of the brain) . In order to live to our potential we have to develop those parts of our being, that are truly human; which is compassion, understanding, becoming aware of ourselves and others and their needs (including the Earth itself). Unless we develop this more human, inner aspects - our human community will die! Freedom without responsibility for each other, for earth, for life is nothing but licentiousness; i.e. becoming a slave of our primitive urges and more so, becoming the slaves of the technology that we think (illusion) we master!
