There is an old African saying that goes like: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. We truly believe that most of us want to go further and there exists and more importantly, needs to exist, for all intents and purposes, a long-term agreement about our vision so that we are convinced to work as a unit, not as individuals nor as families, not as societies nor as countries, but maybe, just maybe, as one giant complex organism that operates in a self-governing, self-correcting, self-conscious and self-harmonizing life.
It is interesting to think like a Buddhist in this context. A useful belief- You are everything and everything is you. So that we can make sense that we are something more than ourselves.
