“How Can We Contribute To Create A Sustainable Community For The Sustenance Of Life On The Earth?” (Quora)
Michael Laitman, On Quora: “How can we contribute to create a sustainable community for the sustenance of life on the Earth?“
We can create a sustainable human community by means of education and dissemination of the knowledge that the quality of our life depends not on the extent to which we fill ourselves with all kinds of technical, technological and technocratic fulfillment, but on the contrary, our fulfillment depends on psychological comfort; it depends on the satisfaction we feel as a result of being fulfilled and of living in a harmonious world. The degree of our progress toward such a world depends only on such education and its promotion.
It can be achieved on condition that we organize our life as an altruistic and positively-connected human society. We can do so when we each “absorb” or take for ourselves only as much as we need to exist, and give the remaining part of our earnings or production to benefit the life of the worldwide global society.
This is how cells of a living organism exist and function. It is nature’s law, and it is how nature organizes life on the animate level. Every cell exists only for the goal of the existence of the organism as a whole, otherwise the cell becomes cancerous. This is how we need to behave: each person needs to act like a human cell relative to the whole “organism” of humanity. If we do so, then unquestionably we will each feel confident and live as a peaceful and harmonious society.
