The idea that you don’t drop bombs on people you’re trying to become friendly with, needs very little explanation, wouldn’t you agree?
As humans, we all live on the same planet in relationship to it, and to each other, therefore, all our issues of importance, become secondary to the single objective of achieving good relations with one another. Once you have achieved good relations with another person or country, you’ll find that most of your issues will become extinct! You may now be thinking that I have the cart before the horse, and that, solving our most prevalent issues is what actually leads to good relationships. That is a natural line of thinking that the world promotes, which defines exactly why we “don’t” have good relationships with one another.
When our global energy, intent and focus, is spread out over a million different issues, the objective of achieving good relationships becomes “subservient to the settling of those same issues,” and as a result, achieving good relationships with each other becomes simply a theoretical dream, that has become globally, very hard to achieve. Alternately, when we all make the idea of achieving good relations with each other, “our primary objective,” then all our major issues become subservient to our main goal of achieving good relations with each other.
Now we are in a position where we can can ask ourselves the question, “does bombing this village or town back into the stone-age, support our major goal of achieving good relations with these same people?” When every single political economic, or ecological action we think to undertake, becomes viewed in terms of our single objective of achieving good relations with one another, the actions we ultimately end up taking become beneficial, because we are choosing the highest good for the greatest number of people.
So achieving good relationships with people, comes about as a result of having that goal as your primary objective. The rest has to do with asking the right questions, such as, “will this idea or action take us closer to, or further away from, our major objective of achieving good relationships, on both an individual and global scale?”
Currently, you may be thinking that this concept is way too simplistic to be effective, and equally hard to implement. It is a whole lot easier to simply do nothing, and stay within our current system, which has been proven itself over thousands of years to be totally ineffectual! Understand that large power structures have no intent or desire to change the status-quo, and that real change for the better usually starts with some grassroots movement, which over time, has garnered a lot of individual support, and become a force to be reckoned with.
The world is a great place in 2016, and it is getting better because of the easy way we’re able to share information with each other. Now is the time to analyze the information we have been fed in the past, to determine if it is still relevant and factual, in the world of tomorrow, that we want to construct.
In conclusion, it is my opinion that world issues are a smokescreen, and a hindrance to the goal of achieving world peace, because of the way they diffuse our focus and energy over a very broad expanse of petty issues of far lesser importance, which are usually based on regional self-interest. Relationships are what life is really all about, and achieving good relationships with one another is what makes life work, and so it should be our first and foremost goal.
