What do we need to sacrifice for a better future?

Question from the Internet:

“What are you willing to sacrifice in exchange for your future?”

It might seem, sound harsh or shocking at first, but for our future, we need to sacrifice our “selves”.

At the moment we are heading towards seemingly inevitable self-destruction, global catastrophe as we all, instinctively care only about our “selves”, making each and every calculation, action for subjective self-benefit.

We constantly thrive to succeed and survive at each other’s expense as cancer cells — since we are all actually individual cells of the same, single, living “Human superorganism” that is also an integral part of Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system.

Thus our collective future — and there is no individual or even national future, survival in this globally integrated and interdependent world — depends on each person learning how to start making calculations, being concerned for the benefit, well-being of the others at least as much as one instinctively worries, cares for oneself.

In the end, we will find solutions, and a qualitatively much higher level of collective existence when we all dissolve into each other, when we all make calculations only about caring for, fulfilling others while we 100% trust the others to care for, to fulfill our needs.

Then we have a future which will be a state of existence we can’t even imagine right now, an existence above and beyond all the egocentric, subjective limitations of time, space, and physical motion, in seamless, intimate integration, partnership with Nature, when everything we ever need will be immediately fulfilled perfectly like ion a mother’s womb.
