Living in the era of “one for all, all for one”
Question from the Internet:
“What is more important, 'what you can do for your country’, or 'what your county can do for you’?”
As we gradually evolve into a globally integrated, interdependent world, this question expands.
What is more important, “what can you do for the whole world” or “what the whole world can do for you”?!
By the pressure of Nature’s plan of evolution, that relentlessly drives the whole system - including Humanity as one species among many - towards a final, most optimal integration, we are entering the era of “one for all, all for one”.
Which means that we have to change our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective mindset - wanting the whole world to serve us egotistically - to a new mindset of absolute mutual responsibility, mutual guarantee.
Then the question loses its meaning, as serving myself and serving others becomes one and the same. When I realize that I am but an individual cell in a vast, fully integrated, interdependent organism, serving others is paramount to serving myself.
