What is our stake in the world today?
Question from the Internet:
“What does it mean to have a stake in our world today?”
In order to understand and feel that we have a stake in the world today, first of all, we would need to understand and feel what it means that we evolved into a globally integrated and interdependent world.
Nature’s evolution has pushed us into this global and integral arrangement where each of us has become a single cell in humanity’s single, living organism, which humanity is also an integral part of Nature’s all-encompassing system that operates according to strict, unchanging and unforgiving laws.
So just like the cells and organs of our own biological body, our individual existence, health and survival as intimately and irrevocably tied to the existence, health and survival of everybody else and the whole Natural system.
So it is not even enough to be a passive part of this system and make sure that at least we do not cause harm to others, but we have to learn how to become positive and constructive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing elements of the system, contributing the wellbeing and optimal development of the whole according to our most optimal abilities.
