Title: Human society is a beehive
User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-07-22 10:09:03
Shrila Prabhupada in Shrimad Bhagavatam 4.24.64 Purport:
"Human society is exactly like a beehive, for everyone is engaged in
collecting honey from various flowers, or collecting money from various
sources, and creating large empires for common enjoyment. However, after
these empires are created, the bites of other nations have to be suffered.
Sometimes nations declare war upon one another, and the human beehives
become sources of misery. Although human beings are creating their beehives
in order to enjoy the sweetness of their senses, they are at the same time
suffering from the bites of other persons or nations."

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!
The one uniting characteristic between all these empires is their total disregard for the laws of nature, their ignorance of how the universe is maintained by the agents of Vishnu. Their strong desire to Lord over this material nature is always the cause of their destruction. Because as soon as they become concerned with their selfish interests by encroaching upon others, harming other living entities, and exploiting the earth for resources, then immediatiely there will be troubles coming from others, and sometimes from even within their own, or by natural disasters, droughts, famine, etc., the threefold miseries. Everything is creation belongs to the Lord and should be used in his service. Even this matter can be used in the service of the Lord and be spiritualized. Those ignorant of these facts become subjected to so much misery.
It must be Kali Yuga.
