Our planet is changing, and it is impossible not to notice these changes. Global processes have already begun, and how our civilization will survive this depends only on us.

Do we live in a friendly world? At first it may seem so. For many people, the current situation is comfortable enough. However, in reality, we can notice that something is not right with our planet -- especially if we look at what is happening globally. Since our childhood, we have been taught that the world we live in is not ideal. We are being presented with injustice, economic crisis, wars, inflation, hunger, pollution -- not only on TV -- but we experience this in everyday life. Is it wrong? Of course it is. Do people try to fight this? Yes, they do. But why are we unsuccessful in leaving all the negativity behind? Why don’t we focus on the ‘here and now’ instead? Authorities describe it in their own way. “Apparently our world is designed like this, and we are unable to do anything about it.“ Sadly, millions of people agree with this opinion. We are used to thinking this way, and considering it normal. So we walk this path of misery and suffering, only with occasional relief. The thing is, we haven´t experienced anything else, and we refuse to see differently. Just imagine that there are other, much better and more natural ways of living in society. Ways we haven´t been told about, on purpose. And we, not trusting our own abilities, refuse to see these different ways of living as something unrealistic. What kind of way of living is this, and how do we start living it? Let´s discuss the topic of our current society’s situation in detail to get answers to our questions. For thousands of years, humans have lived in a specific system which let some people control others. Yes, this system kept changing faces from cruel dictatorship to more refined ones – but they are still corrupt ways of manipulating masses. It’s still happening today. Whatever we call our system nowadays, its foundation reminds the same. It can be described as a consumer society. And to be precise, we should call it a “parasitic society“. The foundation of such a society consists of ordinary citizens, egoists, who demand from others within the society to secure all their needs, taking as much as possible without giving anything in return. Well, they may be trying to do something good, but not without a hidden consumer motive – the desire to appear and look good, showing kindness to gain appreciation of others. Truly they are not as good as they tend to pretend to be. A consumer seeks only his own benefit. His basic motive reminds the same - what others and the society can provide! We all, to a greater or lesser extent, live by this consumer scenario. We can notice this in every aspect of our lives, in our families, teams, countries, in the world economy, and in politics... All to all, there is a lot of it. You may ask “What’s wrong with it? “ Yes, it is necessary to fulfill our needs, however the thing is how it’s done. This worldview always leads to conflicts and disasters Within families it causes arguments and divorces, within teams it causes fights between countries it causes wars. In the economy, this is the cause of impoverishment of the entire population; it leads to unmanageable loans, slavery, envy, theft. There is hunger for some, and obesity for others, and a devastating approach to nature. Looking at politics we see an interesting picture too. Billions of people, because of their laziness (not their desire to participate in society) transfer responsibility for their fate to others; that is, politicians. Politicians are the same consumers as others, but they are also aware that a fight is needed to get a bigger piece of the pie. So they make false promises and gain power. Naturally, they have the same worldview as others and do everything to satisfy their own needs by offering only peanuts to voters. (charity) In a short time, voters start to criticize those they voted for, because their hopes for a good life are not manifested and are destroyed. New politicians replace the old ones and the cycle is repeated. We hand over responsibility for our own lives to others, not only politicians, but for example to the state, our employers, family members and other people around us. They taught us to think that someone has to come and arrange everything for us – but in fact that is not the case. This comes from the consumer position, which does not want us to take responsibility. By doing so, the consumer society is shaping a way of thinking, according to which the entire society is one huge supermarket, created solely for gaining advantages, typically with the greatest profit for oneself and with losses for others. Everyone is fighting to get the biggest piece until nothing is left. Then we will all be at a loss. Crisis, injustice, ecology, poverty, hunger – all of these are consequences of our global consumer view of the world, always leading to war and self-destruction. Add to this the increasing global climate changes, and you will ask whether such humanity still has a future. Cancer cells also function according to this principle. And we all know how this ends. If we are honest we know the abyss lies ahead. And is it possible to change it? A group of fifty people attended a workshop. The workshop facilitator suddenly decided to conduct an interesting experiment. He distributed an inflatable balloon of the same colour to all participants and asked them to write their name on it. After that, they moved all the balloons to the next room. Participants were asked to enter this room for minutes. And within this limited time find the balloon with their name written on it. People were looking for own balloons with a great intensity. Everyone concentrated only on their own balloon. The participants collided with each other, clashed, and the room began to be a real mess. Some even began to swear. As a result, no one was able to find their inflated balloon within five minutes. Then the lecturer offered the other variant of the search. He suggested that everyone not look for their own balloon, but to take any balloon with any name on it and find its owner. Within a few minutes everyone held their own balloon. And so it is in life. Everyone desperately seeks their own happiness. They clash, compete, and in the end they get nothing. All it takes is for everyone to do their best for common good, to start creating happiness for those around. Only that way it will multiply and true happiness comes back where it originated. Fyodor Dostoevsky said “Every one is really responsible to all men for all men and for everything” Can our world be the wonderful place for everyone? Yes, it can, if we all strive to create a creative society. To feel the desire to create such a society, we first need to understand what a creative society is. What are the benefits for all of us? For a living person, the main difference in a creative society is the way they think. Instead of thinking only of himself, he constantly asks another question What good and use can I be for society, with all my possibilities here and now? Such a person tries to make life easier for everyone around him, but it is not an act of sacrifice. Because, in this way, he also automatically helps himself as a member of the same society. Whatever you do for others, you ultimately do for yourself. This is the simple truth. Similarly, the creator seeks equally-minded people to unite the effort, and to inspire others not by words, but by actions. Such a person does not seek culprits, and does not expect someone else to solve his own problems. He has no time for silly things, but instead takes responsibility for his own actions, and acts for the benefit of all. Such a man is driven not by the desire for profit or fame, but by the joy and inspiration of the very process of creation. Anyone who at least once did something selflessly from a pure heart knows what it is. Every single one of us can do a lot. And imagine billions of people behaving like that all, over the world – no wars, crises and conflicts would exist. All of these would become the dark side of our history. There would be a general introduction of a large number of advanced technologies, sciences, the development of green energy, lowering the prices of goods, affordable (and probably even free) housing, food and clothing of the best quality. Wherever we look, it would work across all areas of society. Given the increasing global climate change, focusing on a creative society is no longer a whim but a vital inevitability. After all, the consumer society cannot survive what awaits us in the coming years. But the creative society has such a chance. However, what prevents us from moving to a creative society today? Whoever visited circus entertainment may have noticed that after a show, an elephant who is tied to a small stake attached to the ground doesn't even try to escape. Why? It is a huge, strong animal that is able to rip out an old tree with its roots. So why it doesn't attempt to tear the tiny pin and leave? Only a little effort would be needed to do this. It turns out that an elephant has been taught since birth that he cannot do it. After all, he had tried many times before and had never succeeded. And now the elephant simply does not believe in its own power and remains in place and completely believes that when it is tied it can no longer leave. Our society which consists of almost eight billion people resembles the same elephant, passively waiting for permission from the tamer – with the belief that he would be no worse today than yesterday. So the very first thing we need to do is to believe that it is possible to create such a society. To start, you need to ask yourself a question every day – what can I do now for other people, and for society, as a whole? Go and act. There is no need for demonstrations, shouting in the streets and destroying something. These are all methods of the consumer system, and in fact they do not work. There is a good saying for this Create something new, and the old will fall apart because it is no longer needed. Instead of this, let's focus on true creation. Let's look at the world we have dreamed of for so long. And you know what is great? That such an international public movement already exists and it is formed of millions of people around the world who are implementing various useful projects. One of them is the project “Creative Society“ Anyone who is interested can join it. My recommendation is to learn about it. I will leave the link in the video description below. Now it is clear that the root of all problems starts with people's worldview, that people are not even aware that they can live in a wonderful world or they simply do not believe in it. So the best we can do right now is to openly and honestly talk to everyone about the prospect of a creative society. Do share this video with everyone you know, with all of those who want to spread the word and share these ideas. This is a crucial moment and everything depends on your own choice.
