How to enjoy life?
Question from the Internet:
“Does life (nature) treat us all equally and fairly?”
What is life?
Life is the result of a unique, mutually responsible and mutually complementing co-existence, cooperation between myriads of extremely diverse and seemingly incompatible elements that unite into s single entity for the sake of creating and sustaining life.
And the more complex a living organism is the higher quality of life — a mutual flow of energy and mutual communication — they can generate, and qualitatively higher consciousness and perception of reality they can achieve.
This drove the very special “evolutionary event” of single-cell organisms giving up their independence and uniting into multi-cellular organisms for that higher quality life experience.
This is how it works in Nature, all parts and elements — inanimate, vegetative and animate — all instinctively, inherently integrating and combining into that single, collective life experience.
Human beings — although also born from Nature and still existing in Nature — have no perception of that true life every other part of Nature feels. We are born with a uniquely human, independent, egocentric and individualistic worldview and consciousness. We perceive the world subjectively and egocentrically, “locked into ourselves”.
Due to this we feel ourselves in a hostile world where we have to succeed and survive through ruthless competition, by surviving and succeeding at each other’s and Nature’s expense. Human history and our personal life is an endless chain of conflicts, wars, gains and losses while we try to excessively consume and accumulate everything we can for ourselves.
As a result, even those who seemingly have everything and are manipulating and controlling others feel that life treats them unfairly since they fear for their wealth, fear for their control and power, need to be surrounded by security and are forced to be cruel and strong and oppressive all the time.
As long as we do not learn and implement life in the Natural way, through positive and constructive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing co-existence and cooperation like all other parts of Nature, life will remain harsh and increasingly intolerable as our incompatibility with nature’s benevolent mutual integration grows.
Our Human uniqueness is the fact that we need to learn and implement this Nature-like integration consciously, and willingly through our own efforts. We have to repeat the same evolutionary breakthrough single-cell organisms made millions of years ago, developing a unique, collective Human consciousness and a composite perception of reality that is beyond the subjective and egocentric limitations of time, space and motion.
As a result, even when we are already integrated between ourselves and by that we also fit ourselves seamlessly into Nature’s system, our fully aware, independent viewpoint and consciousness will remain.
This way we will become Nature’s only fully conscious and independent observers and partners.
