Change This 1 Thing to Achieve Perfection

The world is heading to a state of perfection. While it might seem like we are drawing ever further away from perfection, it is in order for us to feel our remoteness from a perfect state so that we would wish to pull together and advance toward it.

In order to realize perfection, we first need to erase our materialistic competitiveness, which holds us in a constant restlessness, and which also makes us view each other unfavorably.

Perfection is a state that is good for everyone, with no problems, a sense of vitality, and where everyone cares about one another.

In order to realize perfection, we first need to erase our materialistic competitiveness, which holds us in a constant restlessness, and which also makes us view each other unfavorably.

We need to calm ourselves down from our rat race and to enact ourselves in the world because we wish to bring goodness to everyone.

We need to calm ourselves down from our rat race and to enact ourselves in the world because we wish to bring goodness to everyone. That is, we need to shift our motivation — that we get motivated by simply wishing to do good to everyone.

If society’s values would shift from what they are now — the reverence of successful individuals who outcompete their way to peaks of wealth, fame and power — to valuing people for the good they bring to society, then we would be driven to bestow goodness to everyone, since doing so would gain us society’s respect. It is my hope that we realize such a change sooner rather than later, as it would alleviate a lot of suffering while also letting an abundance of goodness flow into the world.
