Exhausting Faults And Perfecting Qualities

Conventional standards are such that behaviors are often labeled as either good or bad.  Having accepted and adopted these values, we scrutinize our own behavior and compare it with this conventional standard.  We then strive within ourselves to exhaust our faults and perfect our qualities.  Though humankind has been going about this very effortful process for millennia, at this point it should be obvious that all of the striving has not worked.  If it had, we'd not only have a much better sense of how to handle situations in our individual lives, collectively we'd have a much better understanding of how to deal with the grave problems that face us as a species.  Excerpt: One Simple Change Makes Life Easy  http://www.balancedview.org/images/books/One-Simple-Change.pdf
