The "Never Ending Problem" Of Mankind!

"What are the causes of mankind's never ending problems?"
My opinion is : our moral conduct! I believe there are few important moral conducts we have to observe in order for us to eliminate or not to create new problems! There are :
1. Taking the life of others because they are the "stumbling block" towards our progress!
2. Taking things that do not belong to us.
3. Commit sexual misconduct!
4. Not truthful in our speech!
5. Taking intoxicating foods or drinks.
How can we lead a peaceful life if we to break the above moral conducts? We will always live in the shadow of fear! Just to share some examples : If we have killed someone, we are afraid of people taking revenge, if we steal or taking things that do not belong to us (which includes accepting bribe!), we will worry that people may find out and report to the authority, if we have committed sexual misconduct, we will worry that we may contract life threatening diseases and also scare that our spouse may find out and be divorced! If we were to tell lie, we will worry that others may find out the truth and we have to continuously create a big lie to cover the previous lie. If we were to take intoxicants such as drugs, we will worry that our employer may find out and terminate our service and also we will worry that police may arrest us one day!

Can We Escape From Reality?

"Looking forward for a firmer, softer, smoother & more radiant skin that acts up to 15 years younger? Back by clinical studies, this amazing product, the first in the market, will be launched in April'10 with 4 pages advertisement in 5 major prestigious magazines. Contact the undersign now for a personalized consultatio.... ."

I saw the above advertisement a few days ago. I am wondering what are the "active ingredients" of this product? This amazing product really challenges the ageing process?! As for side effects, the advertiser did not mention anything about it! I really do not know how far it is true.

Anyway, I believe those who are scare of growing old will be attracted by this advertisement! I am wondering how would a 80 years old man look like after using the product? An old face with a young skin? I am really curious and interested to find out one day!

Well, why are people so afraid to grow old? What is the problem of growing old? The below interesting question always linger in my mind whenever I come across this type of situation, "Do we have problem when we were young?".

Which Is More Important? Yourself or Your Belongings?

I just came across an article in the newspaper that a pet owner has decided to spend RM10K for advertisements just to locate his lost pet.

When a person lost his belongings such as properties, pets or any material items, it is natural that he will be panic ( lost his or her mind) and do whatever they can just to search for it! However, when a person has lost himself, do you think he will be panic and find ways to search himself? Usually, they will just keep quiet over the issues and let thing takes its own course.

I really do not know whether human being is more concerned about losing "things ( such as money, properties, pet, fame etc...)" that are outside their body and mind rather than within their body and mind!
Anyone has any ideas to share?
