It's not easy being human
It's not easy being human. Once we pass through the "veil of forgetting" that is rebirth on the physical plane, we are cut off from the divine and are constantly striving, whether aware of it or not, to reconnect. Some try to fill the gap with possessions or striving for wealth, becoming greedy as they find that no amount of money or possessions will fill that gap left from our separation through birth, some fill it with dogmatic belief, their minds closed to all that doesn't agree with their one view of the world. It is easy to succumb to the temptations of the physical world, to forget that in reality we are all one and that what we do to others we do to ourselves. Always remember that we are connected and living as though that isn't true will always result in unhappiness. None of us is perfect, that's part of being human, but if we live our lives with as much compassion and love as we can then we can't go wrong.
