Question: What motivate us to be kind to others, ourselves, and kind to just about everything around us?
Answer: Only education, and its practical implementation in the right, purposeful, mutually responsible and mutually complementing environment.
Contrary to our usual belief, by default we are incapable of TRUE kindness towards others. By default we can be kind only to ourselves driven by our inherently self-serving, self-justifying and hateful (towards others) nature.
I know such statements invite immediate rejections, people would bring multiple examples of “unconditional kindness” observed, performed in the world. And I do not want to convince everybody otherwise.
Only when we are willing to enter into special “laboratory conditions”, into a unique environment with the purposeful method can we actually recognize our inner nature, the real desires, intentions driving us.
Only after we recognize “who we are”, “what drives us” and we want to become capable of TRUE kindness towards others above our inherent nature can we learn how to do it.
