A World For Us All

Share

If we are to follow the road towards a mutually beneficial world, as I suggested in my last post, Human Together, that means we need to envision the world as a space which exists for the fulfillment of all human beings. Collectively that would be the current total of all 7.19 billion of us. And I mean more than just a generalized collective fulfillment, a sort of diffused human pleasantness. But actually, the specific individual fulfillment of each of those billions of humans. That is to say that the world should be a world for…

Human Together

So, having arrived at this point in our humanity, can we humans learn to live together more harmoniously on this earth. Can we transcend the limitations of our current existence, the wars, the violence, the needless sufferings? Can we evolve our minds and our ways of being along with our science and knowledge? Clearly, it’s not the nature of humanity to accept things as they are. Our minds both enable and impel us to find better ways to do things. To move towards a more mutually beneficial way of being, we first have to open…

This is true at all levels, from the inner psyche out to the global level and even to our relationship with the sphere of life. Yet none of us want to partake of any misery, we just wish to follow our bliss. But we find ourselves mired in this world which…

How Shall We Live?

In my last post, The Sorrows of the World, I covered some of the major areas of human-produced suffering that are part of our world. The point of this wasn’t to show what a horrible place the world is, or (like John Gray’s Straw Dogs) what loathsome, despicable creatures humans are. Rather, my intent was to make it clear that despite all of our human success, our biological flourishing, we, jointly as humanity, continue to produce a world that is full of phenomenon that we, as single human individuals, find undesirable,…
