When you give up the notion of God, you take full responsibility for your existence and do not sit around waiting for miraculous help. You also come to truly appreciate living in community. You realise that you are surrounded by all the manmade creations that make life easier for you.

Even if you are without family or friends, you are still in community. You are provided with all kinds of services: shops, hospitals, water and electricity supplies and so on.

All these miracles that you experience have come about from the ingenuity of human beings. That makes you realize that you in your own way, have to make your contribution to the community of human beings.

You are responsible not only for yourself but for everyone else.
