People help each other and work for the same goal when there is event like flood, earthquake etc. But when there is no event like this everyone becomes seperate does not talk or help other people. It goes back to the ego and lets make money anyway we can.
If people would stay in the right alignment of helping others and screw the cash maybe it would be better in this world. But it seems that the good nature of the human comes out only when the survival is at risk.

What do you think about this?

Yes I agree that it is often at times of crisis that our compassion emerges as a species and we band together for the higher good of all. I think it is often at times when natural disasters occur or even catastrophic manmade events, like 911, that we as humans put aside our own little ego and are able to fully be in that Now moment to do what needs to be done.

It is unfortunate that most of us only do this in times of dire necessity. However I also think it is important to remember that there are many people endeavouring to bring this sense of compassion and this desire to lay aside their own little needs and serve the Whole and make it a part of their daily lives :)

I think that it looks that way sometimes but I don't think everyone has that attitude.

Life was designed in such a way that makes sure we do what we are supposed to do. We are meant to enjoy our lives, be happy, and love one another. If we stop appreciating our gifts (one of which is each other), death must remind us to cherish our lives.

That is why the secret to eternal life is so simple... Believe that you will live forever, but live each day like it were your last.

The more we fall short of either side of that calling, the more death draws near.

are we as mankind taking too much time
on thinking what ourselves to be,
can we use our time here and energies
to see all that was destined to be

We were all born with the desire to recieve as much as we can. Unfortunately this is human nature, and even innocent children want as much as they can have. Even charitable work is sometimes done and money donated because it makes the giver feel better. Our egos are a very strong force!

We could band together against this type of thinking, but it is very hard because the majority of people think that selfishness is perfectly OK, and we are surrounded by reinforcements of that everywhere we look! (advertisements for over-the-top things, TV shows where selfish behavior is glorified and etc)

LeeAnn, what if we were born to continue the expansion of our individuality. the force of the lower earth of our ego that becomes an impediment on development is yet necessary for the graduated steps leading to a fuller self-consciousness

fred harmony can exist with individuality. i will add more once you pass over duality to harmony. your ego will not have to be selfish anny more.

That's a nice thought, Fred. I don't believe that is the point of our existence, but some do.

White Tiger make YOUR goal have a "good nature".Be an example to "others" by having one yourself . There is always someone that will need a smile or a kind word whether it is a friend,family or a complete stranger. It is these continual small things that enrich the daily lives of others and gives them pause to think.
