Making the world a better place for everyone
Question from the Internet:
“They say if you’re not making the world better, you’re making it worse. What are you actively doing now that makes things better for others?”
The above statement is true.
We have evolved into a fully interconnected, mutually integrated, and interdependent world, where, in effect, we all function as single cells of the same living organism.
It is not enough that we do not cause harm to each other, we also have to find our most optimal, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing role for the sake of others and the whole system.
From where we stand, from within our inherent viewpoint, this seems and sounds like a true “mission impossible”. After all, we are all born with a 100% egocentric, subjective, and individualistic viewpoint, consciousness, and perception of reality. Based on our original “operating software”, we cannot even sense or comprehend what others want or need since all our calculations are solely based on 100% self-serving and self-justifying “pleasure/pain” software.
Thus in order to make things and the world a better place for everyone, we need to learn and practice how to exist and behave above and against our original operating software, above and against who we are born to.
Why would we want to attempt such an unprecedented and “supernatural” — above inherent nature — self-change and self-upgrade?
First of all, without actually behaving and existing as healthy cells of the same living organism, we will simply not survive. And this has nothing to do with our arbitrary ideologies, philosophies, or religions, which are all the products of our inherent nature. us becoming mutually responsible and mutually elements of the same living organism is determined and dictated by nature’s strict and unforgiving laws.
These laws of nature govern the sustain the general balance and homeostasis life depends on. So without obeying these laws and building a nature-like, finely balanced, and mutually integrated humanity, we do not have the right to survive in nature’s lawful and deterministic system.
Moreover, learning and practicing how to become like nature in humanity — through our mutual integration — specifically above and against our inherent nature is the path towards achieving our unparalleled and very high evolutionary purpose in nature.
By achieving this nature-like integration and thus integrating into nature through the achieved similarity, we will become the natural system’s only fully conscious, integrated, and at the same time independent inner observers and equal partners.
This is why we were born seemingly outside and against nature, so we could consciously, willingly, and by our own free choice achieve that goal and purpose that evolution determined for us. And if we do not take proactive and conscious steps in that direction, nature’s evolution will continue pushing us through blows and suffering until we yield and want to achieve our purpose by ourselves.
