How can we become more benevolent toward nature by helping each other?
Question from the Internet:
“What is point in helping each other if human beings are a cancer in nature?”
The thing is, that not helping each other, surviving and succeeding at each other’s expense and “being a cancer on Earth” are interconnected, basically are one and the same.
All of these things originate from our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective and individualistic nature. It is this nature – in other words the selfish human ego – that drives us to excessively accumulate and overconsume everything only for ourselves while exclusively and ruthlessly competing with everything and everybody to get everything we selfishly want.
So, if we could learn how to help and serve others, how to exist selflessly and unconditionally for the sake of others – above and against our inherent nature we cannot suppress or erase – and this way build a nature-like, finely balanced and mutually integrated humanity, with that we will become similar to nature and stop being a cancer in it.
This requires a unique, purposeful and practical educational method that can teach us and help us tangibly and viscerally feel how inevitably and irrevocably interdependent we all are, and how much our individual health, success, prosperity and survival is intertwined and depends on the health, success, prosperity and survival of the whole.
The moment we understand and actually feel that we are single cells of the same, living human “organism” that is also an integral part of nature, we will not revert to exist like cancer driven by our original nature. Instead, we will choose to survive together, for each other’s and nature’s sake.
