We live in a world who's standard for solutions is simply to treat the symptom. We medicate people with medicine that not only pollutes the body with toxins, but delays progress and many times even makes the symptoms amplified. We attempt to create more gun regulations when murders happen as if it was the gun and not the condition of that person's heart and mind that committed the act. We have a prison system that detains and isolates people with trauma instead of rehabilitating to help prevent that crime from occurring again.
In our own lives, we often do the same thing. We medicate our anxiety, we hide our loneliness behind a relationship, etc. True change never comes from treating symptoms. Perhaps it's time we start looking inside and start doing some heart work.
