Why can’t we share things with others?

Question from the Internet:

“Why is it difficult for people to share things with others?”

Because we are born with a 100% egocentric and subjective nature, we look at the world as if everything belonged to us, as if everybody else existed only to serve us.

We instinctively accumulate and consume everything for ourselves without any thoughts regarding others or the consequences of our actions. We live through ruthless competition, aiming to succeed at the expense of others — knowingly or unknowingly.

Most people are still not aware of all the desires and intentions that truly drive us. Most still believe that there is “something good in us” and that we can empathize, share, and support others.

And until we humbly and honestly recognize our own nature behind all the problems we are facing, and we have ever gone through, we will never find any solutions or our problems. Until then, we will continue to try changing or destroying others and manipulating the world according to our self-serving and self-justifying calculations and viewpoint.

Only when we start changing ourselves according to Nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated template — above and against our inherent nature — will we start sharing and mutually complementing each other. Then we will start solving our problems and continue surviving at a qualitatively much higher level.
