Question from the Internet:
“What does the quote "To do more for the world than the world does for you that is success" mean?”
While this quote sounds good, it doesn’t work in practice. We cannot give more than what we receive, it is not realistic as our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, self-protective, subjective nature won’t allow such action.
But we can build a system called “mutual guarantee", where we gradually build such relationships where each only cares for, fulfils all the others, but as a result of the committed mutuality each receives everything one needs from the others.
This Nature-like mutual integration is something we can build through the right, purposeful and practical educational method.
It is still not “a walk in the park", as even for this “mutual guarantee" — that is given, instinctive in Nature — Humans have to rise above the instinctively distrusting, hateful tendencies towards others. We need to build unprecedented trust for placing our life into the hands of the others while from our part unconditionally giving them everything they need.
By building a system of mutual guarantee in Human society we rise to a qualitatively much higher, collective existence where each is fully liberated from worrying for oneself, we detach ourselves from the inherently limited, distorted, egocentric and subjective consciousness, perception of reality.
Thus we can reach a true, tangible sense of life above the subjective coordinates of time, space and physical motion.
