Dream 001 (#equality #future# #heart #kindness #love)

I dream that people (inclusive so called homo economicus) consistently value kindness over smartness. It is too easy and below human greatness that is in all of us to just be smart. I dream that the strength of choosing the hearty action is with all of us at every time. One more selfless daily effort from everyone results in billions of contagious love attacks that sum up to a compassionate collective as the foundation for peace amongst all … Continue reading

Spiritual (r)evolution

I share the view that societies are running towards an abyss of humanity by blindly accelerate exploitation and destruction of human and natural resources and hindering healing processes required to unify humanity for the realization of economic and social equality, economic sustainability, and peace. But how the hell can an author of such a summary directly add in the second part of the sentence the demand for example for a … Continue reading

Factors that affect happiness and the risks for suicide

Unhappiness causes increased risk for suicide. Cultural and economic factors matter. Modernization, social integration, and psychological factors matter too. Many individuals who display a strong desire to die also have a strong desire to live and may decide to do so as long as the necessary support can be obtained. To understand and provide the environment that is providing for such support is our all and policy makers task for a more … Continue reading

Idiobullycracy

Many still believed that we live in an era in which respect, reason, honesty, and virtue are finally valued over ignorance, craving, and bullying competition. However, this wasn’t / isn’t true and that Trump could win the US presidency is confirming the definitive arrival in the age of idiobullycracy, not only in the USA.

Everything is fine. No need to …

The universe is perfect. No need to think about the meaning of life. Just follow your instincts. We are dependent on the earth, not vice versa. So go get what’s in for you. Everybody wants just the best from their perspective. Everybody gets what she/he deserves. Don’t overthink. We are not human doings, we are human beings. So just be. There is no salvation. We are ruled by evolution’s selection … Continue reading

EARTH – Education, ART, and Happiness

Learn and experience for life I recommend, given the over-emphasis on training of technical skills at all levels of the education system, to complement or replace existing syllabus with “live life” lessons as suggested below. Those in power often tend to have little interest in a prosperous society of equal participants. Rather, it is about maintaining existing privileges. There is a lot at stake. If the ultimate goal of education for all … Continue reading

Quotes on the ‘Happy Colorful Growth’ way

Quotes on the ‘Happy Colorful Growth’ way. Happy: see it. Colorful: believe it. Growth: act on it!

It is easy to be smart, but difficult to be kind

«It is easy to be smart, but difficult to be kind.» From ancient and contemporary philosophies, religions, common wisdom, and inspirational people we can derive fundamentally universal and tremenduously valuable teachings for all life situations in our modern times.

Affirmation ‘From ambition to purpose’

«From amition to purpose.» Generally, if results are not achieved, it is often not because of missing tools (the wrong «how to»), but because of the wrong purpose and motivation (the wrong «why»). Human beings are most willing to open their mind in a more selfless attitude, if fears of external pressure or desire for reward are overcome by faith and intrinsic motivation.

I have seen enough. Time to think and act.

I would have difficulties to explain on my deathbed that I  didn’t try my best to (1) base my happiness truly on other values than materialism, (2) consequently foster a co-operative economy and strengthen the Third Sector (civil society), and (3) grow to a spiritually evolved and inter-dependently connected human being.

Yes, we can.

We can fly to the moon since 1969. We can also spend every 8 days 30 billion dollars for military, what would be enough to eradicate world hunger for a year. And we can count every four seconds a person who dies of hunger or hunger-related causes. – Mathias Sager
