The “smallest thing” we can do to help society

Question from the Internet:

What is the smallest thing that you can do to improve our society?

The “smallest thing” and the only thing — we can do to improve society is to change ourselves.

By that we achieve two things: as we change our inherently self-centered, self-justifying, subjective perception we start to see others and the world differently, while by become less selfish, more caring, emphatic, and giving we also start to exert a positive influence on everything and everybody around us.

As people say, we have to become the change we want to see in the world, so we have to implement this in practice. Of course, this is much more difficult than it sounds since we would need to fundamentally change our inherent nature.

And this is possible only in a very unique, mutually supportive, mutually complementing environment that uses a special, purposeful, and practical method for such self-change, self-upgrade.
