What are the strengths and weaknesses of humankind? Any potential answer is a matter of principles. What are your personal strengths and weaknesses? Only you can say. Each of us has been created by a unique DNA molecule that assembles the proteins which, in turn, generate our unique physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual energies. Although 99.99% of the six billion molecules in our human DNA is common to all other human beings, it still allows for a unique arrangement of few hundred million molecules, and that is why no two of us are exactly alike. In addition, we are all subject to the possibility of random mutations in our genetic material. And each of us has also had a unique nurturing experience.
Because of the changing challenges of modern life, even identical twins do not turn out to be identical. So, by understanding our uniqueness (through the use of introspection) we are able to put together the best of our realities, reason, emotions and beliefs. And, by contrasting this with our commonality (through the use of meditation) we discover balance in determining what is right for ourselves and what is right for all.
