In Plato's Republic, the author-philosopher put forth the proposition that the character demonstrated by the rulers of a society would trickle down and become inherent in the general population of a society. In other words, a social system based on good principles and values would generate serenity and happiness among the people.


Unfortunately for us all,the entire world has lost sight of this simple concept:that your society is defined by those things you value most.


In most if not all societies around the world,people value money,position and power over values like truth,justice,honor and freedom.That is why there is so much injustice and greed around the world.Most people are more concerned about what they can get for themselves than what they can do to support others.In any given interaction,people are more prone to ask,"What do I get out of it?"than to consider,"How can I support you?"


We have cultivated among us cultures that promote the concept of"winning"over everything else."What do I have to do to get that promotion?""How can I come out on top in this upcoming deal?""How do I come out of this situation with more than I had entering it?"In other words,"What's in it for me?"This attitude permeates and worse,motivates people in their daily actions;and it is a highly destructive value system in which to live.


The reason this attitude is so destructive is because winning is made more important than doing what's right,seeking justice,speaking truth,etc.In other words,people are encouraged to do anything to get what they want;lie,cheat,steal,murder,and so forth.


Perhaps this is because(HERD MENTALITY causes)most of you tend to value yourself based on how much property you own,what kind of job you have,how high up on the totem pole you are,and all other kinds of temporal things,instead of valuing yourself based on the kind of person you are.


This attitude of winning at all costs attracts and encourages greed,manipulation,horrible injustices,and overall depravity;and it may be found at the highest levels of governments wherever it exists.Remember,the general population takes its cues from the rulers or leaders of its society.If a government is staffed with thugs and unprincipled sadists,then the population will be filled with thugs and unprincipled sadists.


Conversely,if a government is filled with people who value truth,justice,liberty,and consideration for your neighbors,then the general public in that society will reflect those values.


Don't get me wrong.There is nothing wrong with winning.There is nothing wrong with having a good job,making a lot of money,having nice things,living comfortably,and enjoying the best that life has to offer.The question is how did you come by those things?What price did you pay for them?


If you acquire your money,position or power by violating the fundamental principles of truth,honor and integrity,then I believe you have paid far too high a price for them.If you taint your very soul in order to acquire the things that you have then you have paid far too much.


So how do we change our world from one that pursues winning at any cost to one that respects the rights of everyone and opposes those who would seek to make themselves bigger by making other people smaller?


The answer is actually pretty simple.We need to change our value systems to reflect the kind of world in which people can be happy and feel secure.We need to disallow actions taken out of greed,power-hunger,and a desire to achieve things by diminishing others.


This starts on the local level.It begins in your own house.You-like Plato's philosopher king-need to set the example by acting out of altruistic motives.You need to consider others in your family in your daily life.When one of your children acts improperly you need to correct him or her,and explain that it is best to respect others even if you disagree with them.You need to punish those who steal,cheat or lie.Meanwhile,you need to set the example by not stealing,cheating or lying.


Once you get your own house in order you need to take your message to your local community.Speak up when a neighbor or fellow citizen says or does something wrong.Don't be afraid to express disapproval with harmful acts.Don't worry about whether you are popular for taking a stand;just take a stand for good values.Believe me,when you do this the message will spread rapidly throughout your local community.Others will pick up on your behavior and start to reflect it.The effects will be exponential and amazing.


However,do not diminish what others have to offer.Do not speak at people;speak to them.Listen and understand others'positions even when you think those positions are harmful or destructive.Respect their individual situations even if you don't agree with their conclusions.It is from that standpoint that you become powerful and effective in manifesting the kind of changes that are needed in this world.


You might even run for local public office so that you can inject your core values into your local community.Whether you win or lose,you run your campaign by communicating your character beliefs to the local population.Use media to accomplish this.Regardless of whether or not you win,you will have made your mark on society.


As you proceed in changing your small part of the world, growing numbers of people will join you, thereby creating a gestalt that will serve to effect change on a larger level.


When the time is right,expand your efforts to a larger social group.Infect others with your views,first throughout the city,then the state,then the nation,and then the world.


Do not be discouraged by telling yourself,"I am only one person.What can I do?"That thinking is false thinking.One person who refuses to accept the status quo has always changed the world.Consider Joan of Arc,Martin Luther King,Jr.,Thomas Jefferson,Thomas Paine,Yashua Christos(Jesus Christ).It is always the individual who will not accept that the way things are is how they must be who manifests changes in society.


Of course,those changes could be for the worse and not for the better.Adolf Hitler and Mao are prime examples of individuals who by their charisma changed the world to their ends;but their objectives were destructive and harmful.You need to exercise the same charisma they did,but toward the goals of truth,justice,liberty,enlightenment,and peace.


If you set as your personal goal to bring about a world in which honor,integrity and justice abound,then you are perfectly capable of making it happen.Don't accept the messages of those who say you are insignificant and cannot change things.Don't listen to those who say,"You can't fight City Hall!"Do what you know to be right,regardless of how many people stand against you.I promise you that if you stay true to your vision,others will join you,your ranks will grow,and inevitably,you will succeed in bringing about a world in which we can all live in peace,prosperity and honor.

      梦里梦外 1

      人类似乎一直被运作于某种实验, 而所谓扬升 有可能是实验的一环,而我们身体所经历变化,有可能正在打破身体原有的正常平衡状态,这对于我们来说,这有可能是一种不道德行为,我在今天早晨梦境中的, 梦见的第一场景是,人们身体爆发出能量,变得异样,然后飞向天空,有的高有的低。梦见到第二场景是,在不知名情况下,人们中间爆发瘟疫,从一个人类母体中出来,变得 异样,然后人们慌忙四处逃串。以上内容所说仅提供参考…
      你还相信主流媒体一些东西吗?在保持理性的情况下,劝你远离那些不切实际影视剧和偶像剧的洗脑。如果你接受不了,你还接受那些心理学产出所谓灵性鸡汤文对你大脑灌输,你还在依赖对他人寄于希望,你还在为那些所谓星际神童的预言 算命烦恼 忧心,不肯做出你内心的选择,就说明你不是一个精神丰富,不是一个拥有生活自理能力的人。一个没有生活自理能力的人,更不要去谈道德和发展能力。
      关于“一”答案 有无数个,灵魂需要的是在我们经历二元 对立 时经验和感受,一些劣化思想和灵魂会被淘汰掉,所谓合一的思想在人类文明里人们并不了解,尤其是新型宗教的解释也是不正确的。
      神 上帝 造物主 自我 你 我 他, 这个答案,需要每个人解开,不同思想产生形成独立人格和自我,站在不同位置产生不同视觉和角度,形成不同的看法和见惑 烦恼,这需要人们深深思考,你看待一切问题角度,思想是转变的关键,当你在乎 某种东西超过原来本有东西时,你将成为它,被东西所束缚,人们在不同观念上形成不同的认同自我自由的思想,限制原来拥有的才能。仔细思考,才能真正找到“一”所需要,甚至适合人类正在经历的出路,否则只有被淘汰掉重新开始。 重来是非常苦的历程,我们生命是从无始的简单方式到复杂多样化过程,又从多样化复杂的过程,变得简单化,接着并没有结束,而上往更高发展。我对一切思考方式,通过禅定,突破了物理身体生理上功能的障碍,通过消除自己不干净自我思想,得到答案是任何世界都是平等的,只是存在不同的思想和不同的环境,我们是共同生活在遥远的现在的。不过宇宙存在着各种不同恶劣外太空地理环境,我们的地球是较好被存在们保护很好的环境了。 如果你还认为“岁月静好,现世安稳。”现在发生一切世界与自己无关,那么可以用佛一句话来说 “三界无安,犹如火宅” 在你开智慧的时候,你将看到这个人世间 惨况,内心无法寻求安宁。这个世界需要多数人们经历痛苦感同身受的心,而不是重复发生,而要去避免一些事物发生。有一句话“己所不欲,勿施于人。”在这样一个如同野兽一样的竞争环境,我们需要温暖,恢复作为人根本道德基础,才有可能谈发展能力,提升环境。就算能力较小的人,也应该知道 该怎么样面对这个世界,可是目前人们正在沉睡 阶段,当人们内心正义不存在的时候,这个世界将迎来什么…
