What does our future peaceful existence depend on?
Question from the Internet:
“What does the future hold for peace, and how soon?”
The future and peace are in our hands. And how soon, this also depends only on us.
In order to build a better, more peaceful future, first of all, we need to understand why we haven’t been able to create peace all through history, why human activity is always towards ruthless, mutually exclusive competition and war.
After all, whatever we invent, develop is becoming weaponized, or is used for manipulating, exploiting others. This is because we are all driven by an inherently subjective, egocentric, 100% self-serving, and self-justifying nature.
Knowingly, unknowingly we all consider the whole world only to serve our own selfish interest, and we consider “good, moral and proper” whatever is “good, moral and proper” for us.
Thus future peace and in fact our continuing survival in Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent system depends on us, as soon as possible, recognizing our inherent nature and developing a desire, need to change ourselves.
At the end of the day, we will never achieve anything by blaming, correcting, fighting, and defeating others. Only when we learn how to act above and against our instincts, inherent tendencies can we build positive, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing integration, cooperation that will lead to “true peace” — which is a dynamic, fragile but sustainable mutual complementation, cooperation between diverse, seemingly incompatible parts.
This is what Nature’s strict, unforgiving laws obligate us to do.
So we have to forget about all of our arbitrary, unnatural human philosophies, ideologies, and religions that are all developed only to support our inherently egoistic, selfish point of view and support the constant war.
We will need to consciously yield, adapt to Nature’s laws, Nature’s integral system, and then we will have peace.
