Building strong and resilient communities

Question from the Internet:

“How can we build stronger, more resilient communities?”

Strong and resilient communities need to be built on the so-called “mutual guarantee,” where each member of society accepts and commits to existing only for the sake of the whole community.

In such a community, each individual becomes like a healthy cell in the body, being concerned only about fulfilling one’s unique, irreplaceable, and crucially important mutually complementing role and function towards the whole.

In such a community, nobody has to worry about one’s own necessities since each individual knows and viscerally feels that one’s every need is immediately catered for and fulfilled by others who are similarly committed to serving everybody else outside of themselves.

Such a community becomes like a mother’s womb where each individual is like an embryo in the womb, lovingly cared for and developed, while each individual is also part of the womb caring for others.

This kind of existence is totally against our inherently egocentric, self-serving, self-justifying, and individualistic nature. On the other hand, only the above-mentioned “Nature-like” and integrated human society has a chance of surviving in Nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system.

This is why we need a special, purposeful, and highly practical “Integral Education” based on Nature’s laws, which education can help us rebuild human society on the above-detailed template willingly and consciously.
