Do We Have Common Goals?

Published February 3, 2018 by tindertender

The Sky's The LimitFrom early age hindrances are placed upon dreams. Many children are asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, and then training proceeds which ends those dreams … for many.

Dreamers are not embraced, history and personal experience shows this to be true, mostly. Yet when we make it to adulthood, we have opportunity to shed these ingrained ‘habits’ and become our own best motivator. We are capable of tearing down the system which had been utilized to control our mind.

It takes courage to walk away from what society would have us do, and do instead what our heart tells us we need. It is our responsibility to do so, for if we do not then the cycle of orders, and following them blindly, will continue.

There is no need for kings and queens or rulers over our person. Are we not capable of working together as a team for the benefit of The Whole? History says we are not, but has the population really been given the chance?

From the history we’ve been exposed to we learn that a form of slavery has always been … some working so hard, beaten if they do not, while others eat the fruits of labor and take rose petal baths.

I was saddened when I found that the growers and harvesters of the cocoa bean had never even tasted chocolate. They had no idea what their hard work was creating! If they knew, they may have processed it themselves and been able to gain more for their efforts, for it is their crops which people clamor for. I’m of the impression this knowledge had been intentionally kept from them. Greed is an ugly thing.

Using each other for personal gain has been the ‘norm’ for centuries. Where did this attitude stem from, and why is it difficult for people to share, equally, so that all benefit … equally?

The best example of a true leader, in my opinion, is Jose Mujica, president of Uruguay. Jose donates more than of 90% of his salary to benefit the poor and to help small entrepreneurs. Now, THAT’S a man … this is someone not out for personal gain and prestige, but rather someone who honestly wishes to help the people.

Is it possible for others to behave in such a manner, or has the What’s in it for ME attitude been planted too deeply in the psyche of humanity?
