One Earth, One Sky & One Humankind
By Dono Satrio
“We must declare earth’s resources as common heritage for all the world’s people”
The majority of people in the world maybe have been become familiar with the notion of peace, but do we know truly about peace itself? Can we imagine a harmonized society without violence? How to achieve it precisely? In fact, sometimes it’s difficult to answer those questions very well because when we try to seek that moment in our real life, we are only discovering systematic chaos such as warfare between two nations, terrorism attack, unemployment & inequality of income over the world, vicious circle of poverty, environmental damage & many more.
To tell you the truth, actually we are facing common threats that defy national boundaries, let say: over population, energy shortages, water scarcity, economic catastrophe, the spread of uncontrollable diseases, climate change, food security, and the technological displacement of people by machines, etc. Eight hundred and fifty two million people across the world are dying because of hunger. Everyday, more than 16,000 children die from hunger -- related causes – one children every five seconds. More than 1 billion people worldwide currently live below the international poverty line, earning less than $1 per day.
A very small percent of the people own most of the world’s wealth and resources. The gap between the rich and poor is widening. For instance, in 2002, the average CEO made 282 times as much as the average worker in United States. In 2005 the compensation of CEOs of major US corporations rose 12% to an average of $9.8 million per year. Oil company CEOs did even better with raises that averaged a whopping 109% to $16.6 million per year. Meanwhile, workers salaries barely kept up with inflation in most industries and occupations across the US. In Oregon, minimum wage workers saw their pay rise by a modest 2.8% to $15,080 per year.
The problems we face in the world today are mostly of our own making. We must accept that our future depends on us. While the values represented by religious leaders over the centuries have inspired many to act in a socially responsible manner, others have gone to war over their differences in religious beliefs. Hopes for divine intervention by mythical characters are delusions that cannot solve the problems of our modern world. The future of the world is our responsibility and it depends upon decisions we make today. What is needed is a great change in our direction and purpose – an alternative vision for sustainable new world civilization unlike any in the past.
In my opinion, the shape and solutions of the future rely totally on the collective effort of people working together. As a matter of fact, we are all an integral part of the web of life. Because of that, what affects other people and the environment has consequences in our own lives as well. I believe that whatever we do, it all comes back to us sooner or later.
Violence becomes obsolete
Can you imagine how many people will be victimized, when nuclear headed guided missile is sent to your hometown? There must be hundreds, thousands, or even millions peoples suffering. There must be babies crying for their mommy who’s probably dead. How many parents will lose the children. Really, i can’t imagine all of that.
People tend to forget that violence can’t stop violence. It only triggers another kind of violence. When the people tend to solve problem violently thus leading to win-lose solution (zero sum game), pressing this ego toward others. That way, we are turning back to the law of the jungle, the powerful will always prevail.
Actually, it all comes from our own personalities because violence comes from a violent mind. If we can control our emotion and our ego to share compassion with others, nothing will go wrong. That’s why, our envinronment regardless good or bad, it will become our value, our value it will become our behaviour, our behaviour it will become our habbit, our habbit it will become our character and it will determine to our destiny.
I believe that everyone have the same chance to enhance their quality of life without killing each other. Hopefully peaceful world will come into reality through peaceful mind. Imagine all the people sharing together and also living in a harmonized society.
Education for Change
All day long even every second, minute and hour. I’m still fully motivated to learn something new in my daily activity. Because I realize how very important the meaning of education is. For me, education is a movement from the darkness to the light. Beside that, I also have a sense of responsibility to pass on what I have learned.
So, my big dream is i’m not only to share the information but also to create the transformation for everyone on earth through soft skill education such as mind transformation, emotional transformation and truth application process for natural peak performance. Actually, it’s pretty important to know who we really are, especially as one human race. We are one people, we share one earth planet and also we are part of universe.
Last but not least, if we are planning to survive for a year only, then sow a seed. If we are planning to survive for the next ten years, then plant a tree. If we are planning to survive for the next hundred years, then educate the people. By sowing a seed once, we will harvest once. By planting a tree, we will harvest tenfold. By educating the people, we will harvest one hundredfold. In addition, with guns we can kill terrorists, but with education we are able to eradicate terrorism, indeed.
