IT STARTS WITH ME!…..The world will be very different 500 years from now…. Nature aside, it’s us, we the people that create the wonderful new inventions that help us live healthier, more enjoyable lives…. Who would have thought that we could fly from one continent to another in an aeroplane, but this ‘crazy’ idea from around 100 years ago is now a reality we take for granted, soaked into our ‘normal’ without giving it a second thought….. WE CAN DO ANYTHING!….
 
Do you know that if we all re-calibrated our approach to life with some selfless research and applied our new findings….to enhance our compassion as they key point…. from the collective effort of research and then action, the end result would be that no one would be starving in the world and there would be clean water for everyone…. This in turn would make us all much happier individually, as giving brings about the best type of happiness overall… the research findings available would confirm that……… Feel good factor to the max, and no little children dying from starvation from a collective shift of perception and action….
 
But…. unfortunately we are still stuck in the mode of WAITING FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO MAKE THE FIRST MOVE where we are only glad to join memes like the ‘ALS Ice Bucket Challenge’ when it’s clarified as the ‘cool’ thing to do with a fear of missing out as the main reason of taking part….. upholding a social status being more important than the actually helping part…. I must admit, I was one of those in that category. My compassion activation needing a nudge from a meme, I do not like about myself. Sad for me if I wait for the next ‘cool’ meme in order to show compassion towards the needy. What’s wrong with me doing something now instead? To put some thought to something and just give what I can…Researching William Macaskill will help me with this, to create an efficient and effective way of giving.. http://www.themindvoyager.com/effective-altruism-better-way-lead-ethical-life/…
 
IF THEY CAN DESIGN ROCKET SHIPS, FAR EASIER IS CREATING A NEW PARADIGM OF COMPASSION COLLECTIVELY TO GET RID OF WORLD HUNGER, I’M SURE…………..
