The most valuable resource in Nature

Question from the Internet:

“What do you think is the most valuable resource nature has gifted mankind, and how good has it been put into effective use?”

I would say, that the most valuable and important resource Nature gifted to mankind is our unique human intellect, which can help us recognize that with our inherently self-serving, self-justifying and exploitative nature — that is behind all the helplessly recurring vicious cycles and our current crisis — we will self-destruct.

So far we haven’t used this unique Human intellect as we have been blindly, instinctively developing by the total control of our egos.

After we recognize what ails and disturbs us, this intellect can also help us purposefully and methodically connect to Nature and recruit and harness forces from the Natural system that can help us change and develop in a different way, through different values and intentions.

And then, when we already make active steps and practical exercises towards it, Nature will grant us the most valuable and important resource of all: to be able to selflessly love and serve others as Nature itself does.

And when we become able to love and serve others as Nature does, through that similarity we enter a completely different, qualitatively much higher level of collective Human existence, exploring, attaining, refining and perfecting the system from within, as if we governed it by ourselves!
