How can we change our lifestyle willingly?

Question from the Internet:

“How do we make a comprehensive war on waste a vital part of day-to-day living?”

Any meaningful change requires proper “education”, information share and effective practical implementation. Moreover, if we want people to fundamentally change their habits, we can’t convince them against their feelings, beliefs, we can’t coerce, threaten them, and we cannot use misleading propaganda.

From this, we can see that most of the things politicians, leaders, experts try to do today are by default flawed and can never lead to the right result.

We have to get people on board, only when they join the changes willingly, fully understanding that it serves their best interest will the changes become sustainable, permanent.

This is why we need a unique, purposeful, and highly practical educational method, that can help us recognize our actual, true nature, how by default we all excessively overconsume everything, how we all thrive towards ruthless competition and success, profit, survival at the expense of others and Nature — knowingly, unknowingly.

This educational method can help us look into a “brutally honest” mirror, seeing who we are, what desires, intentions drive us, how incompatible we are with Nature’s integral system — in safe, mutually supportive, mutually complementing conditions. And while we start to see who we are, how harmful our instinctive behavior is we immediately also receive the necessary, practical method to effectively change ourselves and how we relate to others and Nature around us.

Then we will gradually understand how reality works, how we can adapt ourselves to its laws, its system by changing ourselves. Then as a result of recognizing the system, we will also understand what our true, natural, modern and comfortable necessities are and what available resources we have.

Only then will we adjust our lives in a way that we won’t produce excessive waste, we do not consume beyond our needs and thus we actively contribute to Nature’s overall balance and homeostasis life depends on.
