Creating the maximum amount of good

Question from the Internet:

“How can you create the maximum amount of good in the world?”

In order to create the maximum amount of good in the world, we need to accept the definition of “good” according to Nature’s laws that sustain the general balance and homeostasis life depends on, instead of the usual egocentric, subjective definition.

Instinctively we always make calculations for our own sake, according to our introverted perception of reality. We consider good what is good for us and for our loved ones.

In Nature “good” means the general balance and homeostasis that facilitates the creation and nurturing of life, like in between the cells and organs of our own biological body.

As our self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative ego constantly grows, what is “good” for us has become inevitably “bad” for everybody else, as our excessive overconsumption, success through ruthless competition inevitably comes at the expense of others.

This is why we urgently need a unique, purposeful, and practical educational method that can help us learn how to act “good” towards others above and against our instinctive nature, behavior.
