Question from the Internet:
“What do you think there’s not enough of in this world?”
We lack the sense of mutual understanding, true empathy and the ability to see things through the viewpoints of others. By default, we are all locked into our individualistic, egocentric and subjective bubbles.
We see the whole world, including others, through introverted filters, only seeing in the whole reality — including others — what we can use and exploit for our own benefit.
Even what we call “love” is a 100% selfish notion; we “love” whatever gives us a good feeling, pleasures and rewards. If we have no self-serving, self-justifying benefit from “loving”, we cannot “love”.
This is all not our fault. We are created by Nature’s evolution with this 100% selfish, egocentric and subjective operating software. This drove human development away from the rest of nature, differently from other developed primates. This insatiable, egocentric and selfish yearning for more for ourselves drove human development to our present height and also to the brink of self-destruction of humanity.
We will not be able to comprehend, let alone solve our mounting global problems; we will not be able to continue our collective human evolution unless we can somehow learn how to fill the dark, distrusting and hateful abyss between individuals and nations with Nature’s life-creating qualities of mutual integration and unconditional mutual service towards each element of the natural system.
We need to willingly, consciously and methodically learn how to “love another as we love ourselves by default. We need to learn how to make fulfilling the needs and desires of another as important as fulfilling our own needs and desires. We have to learn qualities and intentions that are simply not in us by default.
But with the help of a unique, purposeful and practical educational method, we can learn and implement how to rebuild human society based on Nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated template — above and against our instinct and inherent behaviour.
Then we will become truly Human, beings that have acquired similarity with Nature despite and opposite to our instinctive inner program and inclinations.
