Ethics and the Ego-ridden Individual

In today's fast paced corporate life, the ego-ridden individual (irrespective of gender) seeks freedom from his nerve-racking run after worldly objects in the external world which leads to a life of bondage, misery, worry, insecurity, despair, frustration, disillusionment and doubt. The modern man has sold himself out to gain reputation, personal power and more money all for his selfish needs. Added to it is the competition to establish in market place position and compete with rivals - thus making the value of sharing and ethical behaviour "a paradox".

Ethics and Ego

Very good comment. It is a real fact happening in today's life with every individual.

What is the solution?

It is impossible to survive in the present world without being materialistic or competitive. Even the smallest of small jobs has competition. Even institutions like temples, mosques or churches are run based on financial considerations and ego of the individuals. In the past people created or believed in an external power above all called GOD. But being Godly is unscientific. So what pursuits can a spiritualist seek in this age? So if we cannot seek God or find social support for the concept then we are bound to pursue materialism. Consequence of materialism is bondage, misery, worry, insecurity, despair etc.
