GOING ALL-OUT FOR PEOPLE, PLANET AND PEACE
A person of goodwill will never hesitate to do the most good for the most people. Since he or she has good wishes in his or her heart for other people, it would be a pleasure for them to be of help or service to others. A person of goodwill should also go all-out to save or safeguard the planet which has been afflicted with so many sickness and diseases, environmentally, ecologically and stratospherically. People of goodwill are the vital need of the present age. The world is full of conflicts, violence, hatred and warfare. The world needs PEACE; Peace is now the most precious product for the whole world.
OVERCOME SELFISHNESS
Selfishness means caring only about yourself and not about other people. It can also mean deficiency in consideration for others. It can also mean chiefly thinking of and interested in one’s own needs and welfare; without care for others.
Human mind can be cultivated by training and education to be less selfish.
OFFER HELP & ASSISTANCE TO THE NEEDY
Many psychologists have expressed that life is unfair. People of Goodwill can help reduce the unfairness of life. Life can be confronted with afflictions of body and mind. There are many haves-not and haves-less in the whole wide world. People of goodwill can offer help and assistance in the forms of cash and kind, education, caring and sharing, charity, philanthropic liberality and generosity.
DEVELOP THE SPIRTIT OF ALTRUISM
Man is by nature imbued with many defilements of mind such as greed, anger, delusion, conceit and jealousy, stinginess, sloth and torpor etc. People can be trained to be less self-centered by exposing them to the various forms of suffering endured by the less fortunate people. There are many victims of misfortune such as, war, famine, disease, natural disasters and calamities such as earthquake, floods, fire-outbreaks. In all the midst of such sufferings, the SPIRIT of ALTRUISM should be nurtured, cultivated, encouraged and appreciated.
WISH WELL FOR ALL PEOPLE TO LIVE WELL
All people want to live in comfort zone, if not in luxury. Most people are somewhat crazy to live in pomp and glory. But, nothing is permanent in this world. Everything is transient. Nothing can be grasped and held fast. Nothing lasts long. Pleasure is just a prelude to pain. Decay and death always reign supreme. So, it is wise to lead a life of simple living and high thinking, diligence and frugality, plain living and hard struggle, while helping others to live decent lives.
INTENTIONALLY DEVELOP EDUCATION AND CULTURE
It is the PRIDE that is at the centre of Tanha, Mana & Dhitthi (Craving, Pride & Wrong View) which impel man (human being) to suffer, to be afflicted. Again, I is at the Centre of Pride. Man is too I-centered or I-centric that man is thick inside with arrogance, greed, hatred, ignorance and stupidity. Hence the need for intentionally designed education and culture for the unfortunate people.
LEARN TO GIVE LOVE
The one thing that all creatures crave is LOVE. And the one thing that people in all categories of age want is LOVE. The Poet Elizabeth Lassie Said: “To live is to fight, to suffer and to love”. Emerson also said: “Give all to love; obey thy heart.” The best mental nourishment is LOVE. I only want to repeat the saccagraha of:”Love All, Serve All; Hurt Never, Help Ever.”
LIVE WITH STRENGTH, SERENITY AND SATISFACTION
It is important for the people of goodwill to live with strength, serenity and satisfaction. The world needs people of goodwill with strength, serenity and satisfaction, who will be always at the vanguard of the great fight against ARROGANCE, GREED, HATRED, CONCEIT, MYOPIA AND IGNORANCE OR DELUSION.
CONCLUCION
Long live the people of goodwill!
