We need to learn what change we want to implement in the world — by changing ourselves

Question from the Internet:

“According to Mahatma Gandhi, one must be change you want to see in the world, "what are the things you want to change?”

All our problems have the same root cause: that we are all born with an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and subjective nature.

This nature, inner program shows itself very differently and with varying intensity in each of us. Most people are completely unaware that such a selfish, exploitative ego drives them, that knowingly, knowingly they inevitably succeed, survive at the expense of others.

Nevertheless this is who we are.

This is neither evil, nor it is sinful. We are born like this, Nature’s evolution gave us such an initial inner program purposefully.

This way we have the free choice, conscious ability to “perfect ourselves", to complement our raw, selfish, egotistic software with Nature’s selfless, altruistic upgrade by our own efforts.

And by that we justify being the “crown of evolution", reaching our unique human evolutionary purpose consciously, by our own efforts.

So this is the change we want to foresee and implement by purposefully, methodically changing ourselves, so we could build the Nature-like, mutually responsible, mutually complementing interconections above, against our instinctive, selfish egos.
