We have absolute personal and at the same time mutual responsibility for making the world a better place!

Question from the Internet:

“Is making the world a better place actually an individual task?”

It is an individual task performed together. We all have to feel and accept our absolute personal responsibility for making the world a better place. At the same time, we also have to understand that on our own we are totally powerless, we are incapable of doing anything.

We are all but individual cells in a fully, mutually integrated and interdependent living organism, Humanity as an organ also being an integral part of Nature.

In such an integral living system we can never make any actions, changes alone, since for any changes purposeful, collective, mutual communication and actions are needed.

Moreover, if we act on our own, we inevitably use our inherently egocentric, subjective calculations which also inevitable causes harm to the integral system. Only when we build and sense a unique “collective consciousness”, “collective intellect” which looks at everything in a systematic, “Natural” manner can we find the right desires, solutions and actions.

Thus our responsibility for making the world a better place is personal and mutual at the same time. This has nothing to do with any of our misguided, illusory human ideologies, philosophies and religions that are all products of our instinctively egocentric, self-serving and self-justifying consciousness and calculations.

Humanity’s task is very special, as we have to learn and implement the same mutual integration that exists in Nature, but while Nature’s other elements automatically, instinctively integrate, we have to learn and implement mutual integration against our instincts, consciously. This gives us our unique Human advantage in the system, making us Nature’s insider observers and partners with an independent viewpoint.

We need to learn how to feel, see and assess reality from Nature’s fully integrated point of view — which is possible only through the above mentioned “collective consciousness” — when we all “disappear” in each other and start existing for each other.
