Switch On the Wall

A Switch on the Wall

There’s a switch on the wall in the down position. If you flip it up you’ll end all poverty and hunger in the world and there will be absolutely no adverse effects for anyone. Will you switch it? Of course you would. Everybody would.

Now, imagine that you have to switch 1,000 switches every day for 20 years to end that poverty. Would you do that? Maybe not.

What’s my point? It’s this. If ending suffering can be made easy to do, then everyone will do it and they’ll do it gladly.
