Toward A More Merciful World!

in joy •  last year

For each of us eventually, whether we're ready or not, someday it will come to an end. This is part of one of the most inspirational thing I've ever. I first heard it from a documentary called "The Beautiful Truth".

We've pretty much heard it all, at least once. It goes something like, nobody knows when life ends and thus we should all be trying to make the best out of it, all the time.

What Truly Matters!

It then goes on to say: "What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice, that enriched, empowered, or encouraged others to emulate your example." (Source)

What I share on Steem is a big part of my legacy. If I'd die tomorrow, what's in this post and a couple others would probably be what I would love to be remembered for.

As an aside, Steemit is fast becoming the most popular social network there is and as I've said previously, it seems only a black swan event could reverse this trend.

Sooner or later, millions of people will be visiting Steemit and our actions here today will become a lot more influential which is something we should be all keeping in mind.

Let's try to acknowledge the plight of the most in need and work towards helping them, so that the universe's infinite beauty can be infinitely reflected wherever we look.

Maximizing One's Life Enjoyment!

Everyone should look toward maximizing one's life enjoyment while also working on making the initiation of violence obsolete, as abuse and initiation of violence lowers life enjoyment for everyone.

"People don’t choose violence because they want the violent solution, the choose it because they don’t see any other way." @dantheman (Steem's main architect)

There might always be some people resorting to violence but this isn't a reason not to work to curtail its use and thus working toward making the initiation of violence obsolete.

Making the initiation of violence obsolete is the ultimate challenge humanity is faced with. There is no greater challenge and thus no greater reward, for if we can do away with the initiation of violence and abuse, an era of unprecedent cooperation awaits us.

Since its very beginning, life has evolve pressured by merciless competition. Maybe then, merciful social pressure could be one of our best tool to curtail violence and abuse.

Organizing Peaceful Cooperation!

To do away with the need of violence, we need to do away with the current form of governments. Doing away with current governments, without the use of violence, needs to be done with free market.

I believe that properly organized social pressures can be far more powerful than any standing army or government bureaucrat. @dantheman

Trying to organize those positive social pressures or in other words, peaceful cooperation, is currently our most honorable option we have, working toward a better world.

Cryptocurrencies are better suitted than any other technology to enable us to organized peaceful cooperation on a scale we've never seen before.

Cryptocurrencies are a new type of technology which first emerge in January 2009 with Bitcoin.

In the following series of article I will demonstrate what are the many advantages and new features cryptocurrencies have over national currencies as well as how they are undermining the power of the different governments to the benefit of every Earthlings.

I'm organizing peaceful cooperation, leveraging social pressures to become a better person. Steem, cryptocurrencies and social pressures are only some tools part of a bigger whole which we should try never to lose sight of.

I aim at making this series a reference in term of helping people to live a more enjoyable life. This series will be part of a bigger series in which I will share what I learn about what is most important in life, from the alpha to the omega and everything in between.

Bonus!

We're creating systems that make governments irrelevant, taking dispute out of their jurisdiction to allow people to interact securely with each other. - Me paraphrasing @dantheman - (source)

The timing of everything on Steemit seems to be so unreal. We need this kind of practice more than ever. Lately I have had a reoccurring thought that I am not going to be here in less than 100 years. When you think about how quickly 1 year goes by, 100 years isn't very long. It makes me sad that we can't live forever, but it also makes me realize the amount of goodness we must cram in to this life time. I'm sorry I probably don't have the best answer to anything on Steemit at the moment, you know I am sick. And it's because of you and Steemit that I am getting better & working towards getting amalgams banned & also doing a study on mercury & the neuroimmune disease Myalgic Encephalomyelitis to add to the M.E Wikipedia site to hopefully aid in proper research of the disease.

There are some very deep & heavy cycles that are in need of change. It's taken me almost 30 years to realize how many of the things we take part in are so unethical and damaging. Every day, we get to make choices with everything we do, eat, say. I am thankful for the healers that are helping make people aware that they are healers too.
Especially since having a child I have begun to question everything. I am more aware of life & death. More aware of the cycles she must not carry with her through life. More aware that every day must count. You are and always have been one of my favorite steemians. For always making me think and challenge my thoughts and have timely reminders like these.
Cryptocurrency is definitely a godsend. Money should never be a factor in deciding someones quality of life. I am actually terrible at writing what I am thinking at the moment, just know I am so thankful for you & Steemit, crytpo etc. When is your birthday @teamsteem?

We meet again. :)

Alrighty. So... Its kind of funny that i ran into this today. Really is. Ive written a post similar in topic, that pertains to our overarching benefit we achieve by helping others. I go a bit deeper in the discussion with tying it all to tangible benefits especially in the Steem ecosystem.
Its really not so different from what you are saying here.

"Sooner or later, millions of people will be visiting Steemit and our actions here today will become a lot more influential which is something we should be all keeping in mind."

This is extremely important here. Not only will our actions now, be influential later, but rather our actions now at this very moment influence those that will potentially arrive on Steem.
Every single one of our actions here, every decision we make now, every good or bad deed, every selfish or altruistic act, we all do as a collective, when put together, has a supreme effect on the outward perception others have in regard to the Steem ecosystem. An effect on its reputation, on its standing, on the faith that it will succeed.

Even the smallest voice has weight. The most "insignificant action" has an effect. Payouts fill your pockets, but respect of the community, cooperation make you great.
I still think that the smallest of plankton has the power in them to effect this platform equally to those whales with 500k, 1mil, 2mil, SP... It will be super hard and the odds are againts you but it can be done.
It just takes courage and determination.

And there we go. Id say im most proud of this one so far. hehe...
Anyways i wanted to tell you that on my last post on "enlightened self interest" im trying to collect funds to help fill the reward pool of Openmic, since pfunk dropped from top 20 witnesses and they are running at a loss. I cant stress enough the importance of openmic for us musicians on Steem..
Im donating all the SBD from that post payout towards the reward pool. Its currently at $74 so any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.
Thx for reading and see you later. :D

Hmm, well said. The fact that system of Government isn't working well is the fact that we as people have not really looked into ourselves.
Self realization I would say is the key to a sustainable development world system devoid of all this social vices that tend to set back the developmental growth rate in our society.

ways of improving one's self

Education
This is the problem with most 3rd world countries like Nigeria where am from. The poor government structure has not taken education of the younger generation as a paramount needs, there are just after their selfish interest and live the citizens to suffer. These in turns leads to crime, because as they grow with knowledge of the basics the are not useful to the society and this is a problem.

Reading
This still balls down to education, when the children are properly educated they will be able to read. Even though the educated ones have not been reading enough to develop their minds and spend much time surfing the web for nothing that really profits them. Examples Facebook, twitter etc. So when we read the right things we improve our minds.
These are few of the ways, we could still do research for the rest of them which I won't be able to list now. When this the Government see to improving this standards and we as people work on ourselves, we will all be happier people. The advent of steemit has brought about people saying their ideas and there are lot of things to read. People can now share their thoughts and ideas that others can relates and learn from. I would say steemit is a plus. It is where I go back and see why words that makes me proud. It is our legacy because steemit has come to stay. Thank you @teamsteem.

Wow.... Am so grateful for this. Thank you @teamsteem.

Felicitaciones por tu excelente post, te invito a que nos sigamos y asi podemos crecer mas rápido, saludos

Resteemed and upvoted.

If not for the reference you made to this post, I would not have seen this beautiful masterpiece.
I will start by first of all appreciating you for this opportunity to air my view on this awesome write up.

it is pertinent and very fundamental that we understand the fact that, every seconds of our life here on earth counts and we are judged by how we lived our life, the good and the bad we did, the help rendered, the sacrifices we made towards the betterment of humanity and most importantly our contribution to the sustainnce of a peaceful human coexistence .

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."- Theodore Roosevelt

what we do and the positive difference we make around us matters a lot.
The world we only be a better place when we bgin to see each other as ourselves. When we see each other as ourselves, we wouldn't want to hurt, malign, hurt, kill or do anything that will in anyway affect us negatively.

Life gives us time but only love gives us meaning.

Life is good and sweet when we realise that we are just mere mortals squatting in a world we don't own rather given to us by our creator. Life is sweet when we realise that we came into this world with nothing and we are definitely going to leave with nothing and we are going to be judged by what we have done. Peace is what everyone is preaching but have we sat down to ask ourselves how well have we lived up to what we say.

When we were born, we cried and the world rejoiced. We have to Live our life so that when we die, the world cries and we rejoice.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

Everyone is unique in his or her own way. The footprints we leave after we are far gone will stand the test of time as long as it is an emulable one.

A man of integrity is a man of the principle. A man of peace is a man of the progress. A man of love is a man of compassion. A man of humour is a man of joy and a kind hearted man is a man of generosity.

you have been a source of inspiration to the newbies to this community, your commitment toward the positive growth of this community is an outstanding one. your good works will surely be spoken of when you are long gone, our generation will one-day fade and the new generation that will come up will look for the legacies laid by people like you to emulate.
Keep the good work up sir @teamsteem, I remain your ardent follower @cyprianj

If I die tomorrow, I wish a violence free world for my child and my child's child.

Violence is with us since the very first day of creation, where Cain killed his younger brother Abel. Now in our present time violence resulted in the death of millions around the world. And the initiator of violence have in common, lack of attention, respect and low self-worth or feel being abused or being neglected. All those psychological traits are commonly found to the group of poor people like me. Therefore, poverty is a cause of violence and the government had nothing to do with it because, poverty is a by product of centralized and corrupt government.

Looking at the bigger, cryptocurrency and peaceful cooperation is the only way if we want to make a world a better place and violence free. And among the current cryptocurrency, steem has the ability to deliver to the people as long as he/she has an access to internet.

Violence become avoidable in the future. If we start a peaceful cooperation now.

My goodness!! This is a masterpiece, it is pertinent that most definitely, one day it will end for all of us but what is important is whether we're affecting lives around us and on the steem blockchain. I love the part which you said

We've pretty much heard it all, at least once. It goes something like, nobody knows when life ends and thus we should all be trying to make the best out of it, all the time.

This words set me thinking about my life and what i have achieved, have i been a blessing to people around me and on the blockchain? I have come to realise through this post the true essence of living, which is affecting your community and the world at large. We can actually work together in unity to curtail violence thereby reducing its tendencies and the cutting off the avenues through which they come. when we love without prejudice and have each other's interest at heart, then the world will be a better place like Michael Jackson sang in heal the world.

"Heal The World" By Michael Jackson

I want my kids to be able to respresent me in life . Life is too short it really is . You never know what’s written for you or when your time is . I often think down that next year I’ll be doing this or that , but what’s the guarantee I’ll live ? I’ve lost a lot of people in my life which has made me enjoy the little beauties in life more . Appreciate others around me and make change In this world and myself because change comes from within

Great post!

"People don’t choose violence because they want the violent solution, the choose it because they don’t see any other way." By @dantheman.

This part really caught my attention because its so true and could be found everywhere in the society. You see a young boy who is strong and agile doing all sort of evil things just to make it in life not knowing that one day, we might just stop breathing and must also give an account of how we lived our live on earth. The actual problem like you stated is not that we enjoy doing violebt things inorder to make it in life but because they do not know other means. So I'm urging us all to take advantage of all these new social networks that be coming out these days inorder not to engage in violent matters, since we now know that blockchain is here to raise us above our normal status. Some of them include:
Steemit: which is the most popular among them all
Mithril(LIT): with this one, you can earn as many mith token as you want if you you a fan of instagram or Snapchat.
Or you can decide to mine electroneum by yourself and earn some cool cash in the nearby future....its better to engage ourselves with something usedul rather than choosing the violent way. I really learnt a lot from this article @teamsteem

Good morning @teamsteem.

Everyday I get to appreciate and fully understand why you go with the

Non-aggression principle towards all Sentient beings.

In all, when we die it's our legacies Which lives on, whether good or bad, and at such we all should strive to make the best out of life being fully conscious that no one knows when Death will come knocking .

Toffler once said that

Technology is that great growling engine of change.

And truly the Blockchain technology and Cryptocurrencies are the growling engine of change in our era. We're indeed blessed to be living in this dispensation and I'm thankful to you, and Dan and to everyone who has helped spread the news to the world and who is working to enable a more peaceful world.

Keep being amazing, we're truly grateful and only God knows how blessed I am to have found about the Crypto world. It's a true saying by @surpassinggoogle, we all have to be the best version of ourselves and treat humanity with good, helping the world rediscover their humanity. Truly

Everyone has something to offer.

And thanks for the knowledge and help you've been offering.

yh you are right crypto is really doing what the government cannot do for its' citizens and thanks to steemit we now have a way to actualy work for it without initial investment, and hopefully te free market would continue getting bigger in order to provide maximum support maximum to humanity, crypto is one of the best inventon of man kind anyday.

For each of us eventually, whether we're ready or not, someday it will come to an end.

Death is no respecter of any man, death is death and we all have a similar fate. when we die we leave our fortunes and what we are remembered for is the lagacy we have left behind.

Sooner or later, millions of people will be visiting Steemit.

a man with many benefits, is a man with many friends. steemit is a social media with many benefits and as such many more are yet to come in. the 1million steemit user is just a tip of the iceberg and with wide acceptance a billion user mark is visible.

Let's try to acknowledge the plight of the most in need and work towards helping them, so that the universe's infinite beauty can be infinitely reflected wherever we look.

We are all humans; if we help humanity, we are helping ourselves also. Let try to see how we can join hands with others to make the world a better place.

LOVE IS THE GREATEST

It was a great read! A world of violence isn't one that I would wish for anyone. Sadly, violence seems to be the norm these days, we all deserved a peaceful world to live in. I once was affected by violence and it sure wasn't a nice experience. Just as you said, peaceful and merciful social pressure is what we need in order to make violence obsolete. Our government is quite messy (and I wonder if that change can happen under the same form of government), thanks to decentralized platforms like steemit, it is revolutionary. We all deserve to have an enjoyable life, and also get the most out of it.

100% adoption of cryptos will cripple the governments, so are we looking at a world without borders???
Maybe someday the only nationality one can have is "Being A Human"

God, I want to live long enough to see that happen.
I joined steemit to gain access to cryptos and I will be eternally thankful to it for making me truly immortal(the actions that we do here are permanent)...
But
I hate when they tie the value of a crypto to fiat.
Why do we need to describe 1 steem in terms of some dollars, why not against some grams of gold. 1 steem has much more value than to be described in the form of some petty fiat...

·

I hate when they tie the value of a crypto to fiat.

I love it. It indicated the pace at which the value of fiat currency is going down.

Excellent post! Please take a moment to read this if you have a moment and let me know what you think? https://steemit.com/steemit/@laurabean/what-steemit-means-to-me

First of all, your posting style is remarkable and it is clear to see that you have been around the blog (hue) a bit longer than I am. I will take a look at MarkdownPad as you suggested, maybe it will do me some good.

That aside, I very much like the overall topic of this post and I know that I will be reading it more than just this once. Fun fact:

While reading, I had this song constantly on my mind, which was both entertaining and fitting.

Gotta respect some of the classics I guess.

Agree with you. Steemit as a blogging + cryptocurrency platform is the living example of how crypto could bring benefit to the world. More and more Steemians join niche communities to strive for the betterment of humanity. With people working hand in hand like this, a better and merciful world will come earlier than we expected.

Very deep thinking..We create the world with our thoughts and it is really important that our thoughts be positive and pointed to a better world..I want you to reach as many people as possible and that as many people think like you..

·

you are absolutely right but the governing powers in the world do not want to reach that. because if they want they will make the world a better place in a matter of days,,
we wants peace but among us there are some governments and countries that really fight peace wherever they see it.

·
·

Without war and constant conflict between people, keeping them easily controlled would be much more difficult. Zbigniew Brzezinski in this video explained it well.

"...in early times, it was easier to control a million people, literally it was easier to control a million people than physically to kill a million people. Today, it is infinitely easier to kill a million people than to control a million people. It is easier to kill than to control...."

Keep that in mind for the present day though. They cannot control us, but they can still easily kill us. Too many people are awakening, and too many people are resisting state monopolies on force. Too many people are fed up over double standards and special protections as well.

I do not think the oligarchs are going to give up their power without a fight either. If we cannot be controlled, they will try to kill us. Global war is the logical conclusion therefore. Prepare for the worst while continuing to hope for the best.

·

Bang on the money there my friend!

Ok this just put me in a great mood. You just became my first witness vote.

·

Thank you my friend. I'd love it if more people would get that part of the message. I'll work on that later.

Nice one, @teamsteem. :) Resteeming this to 14,000+ followers.

Cryptocurrencies absolutely do foster the "village" mentality.

I am registered with ALL the social media platforms, fb, twitter, insta, pinterest, and many more niche specific like goodreads etc. I have a total of over 20K followers across my accounts. Not once have I ever felt proud to be a member of any. Until Steemit.com. I fully believe in the power of the community fostered by the blockchain. This is coming from someone prior to June 15 (my steemit join date) didn't even realize there were more than the three big cryptocurrencies, and had never thought to delve into this world.

The future and the freedom is Steem and the like.

·

@arbitrarykitten I could not agree more with you and it is the unfathomable potential of decentralized blockchain technology which I think should give confidence to anyone investing in cryptocurrencies long term.

Cryptocurrencies are not merely replacing gold or even money, they strive and have the potential to change the world as we know it.

·

Correct. I think a lot of people now appreciate Steemit and it is revolutionary. Seems like the current big platforms are learning and trying to add some things that will compete with Steemit.

Having a more merciful world is possible. It can be attained through the realization of camaraderie/teamwork. Let us work as one and help @teamsteem's mission by spreading this article in your other social media accounts. I just did. :))

·

Great!

Well said, we should all aim towards global enlightenment. Away with governments, censorship, media and control. If everyone was free no one would have the need for violence.

Yes life is mortal. If you live 100 years you will die one day. Time is flying. People don't remember you by name but by your deeds and actions. There came a lot of emperor's but only few are able to write their name in the history. On the other hand people who worked for the humanity and did great discoveries and inventions always alive in the history. As a part of mortal world we should do something so that our feature generation will pride on us. We should give better world to our new generation and this can be done to minimize environmental pollution. Beside climate society our new generation also need some better system. A system and place with no voilence, a world where people love humanity and do care each other. Steemit is an amazing where we can develop this system. A transparent system which is luckily available to us in the form of block chain. People do care each other. It is the amazing community where people grow with mutual cooperation. Crypto is certainly the currency of futrue it will bring the revolution and destroy the system of few worthy influential rich people which hijacked the market. Still it is an early day. Let's work together and make this platform an amazing place and nice opportunity for the new generation. In this way we give better world to our new generation and ourself. No matter how we place in present. Our future is bright. All we need to do is hard work and spread the message of peace and prosperity around the world. Thanks for sharing @teamsteem

I really like the thought that cryptocurrencies will allow us to create peaceful cooperation @teamsteem. Great article and looking forward to more!

In response to this Beautiful truth:

Live your life to be missed not just remembered

*Contentment will only come from living beyond yourself

What really matters is: the life you give another from the free gift of life you have received.

#real-life

Thank you @teamsteam. The greatest gift if not received but felt. That joy which remains with you are showing love and compassion. That peace which remains in you after forgiving and letting go of grudges. That's the greatest in all humanity

I really like this approach to a non-violent world that you've laid out. And I definitely share the viewpoint that peaceful organization will have to be our main resource for achieving that. I also hope to leave my legacy here on steemit, and what I share here is what I would want to be remembered for. I think we can all stand to follow from your example. Cheers! :)

I agree with the ideas you suggest.
Everything in this world will die.
But before we die, let's leave something that can keep us always remembered all the time.
I am sure, with the existence of steemit media, we will certainly be able to make it happen.
Let's help each other to make us always remembered all the time.
That way we will always live in the hearts of everyone in the world.
Thanks steemit ....

There might always be some people resorting to violence but this isn't a reason not to work to curtail its use and thus working toward making the initiation of violence obsolete.

Making the initiation of violence obsolete is the ultimate challenge humanity is faced with. There is no greater challenge and thus no greater reward, for if we can do away with the initiation of violence and abuse, an era of unprecedent cooperation awaits us.

Since its very beginning, life has evolve pressured by merciless competition. Maybe then, merciful social pressure could be one of our best tool to curtail violence and abuse.

This is bitter sweet for me today as I lost someome Dear to me ... my 97 year old resident and I agree that what we do in our lives can influence anothet even after we depart. She will always be very close to my heart for she taught me you can love someone , who is no relation to you just as they were your family!!!... these are the things that matter most. Our interactions and influence on others.

·

My condolences.

·

Thank You Very Much , that is very truly kind of you and I appreciate it.

·

Great post and I concur. Resteemed and Up'd

Thank you! I agree with ideas. Also i think, that governments use a lot of money for army and politics, but not for education, integrity, medicine and citizens. Hope, that cryptocurrencies make world better for all people, for all of us!

@teamsteem this is really a nice post and i like the way you do take care about the living dignity of other humans. Seeing this post made me look nice as you do care for the youth and the children.. @naseerbhat

Good post and your very good thoughts. I always adhere to the principle of "mutual respect will reap the rewards, think before acting, do before the end" is the key to success.

Steemit account for now also more useful, besides can introduce themselves and form a community, also can earn income.

love your blog, resteemed it. It add values to the readers

I was honestly shocked to read this post for the simple reason that I have the exact same feelings as you and that just minutes ago I posted an article where I express the same things you are in this article.

Just like you I make a point of reading all my comments and instead of a blog I am trying to create a community where all constructive commenters get rewarded with an upvote, of which I have many to give due to my 2700 SP.

yes man thats why I want to use steemit to help people but also animals, we can use money to donate to animal shelters and animal adoption type programs and get pet sitting of animals that need homes, we can seriouly yave a world where you can tell your kids that there are nio kill shelters theer are no pounds that have to kill animals that they talke care of all strays, and we can then neuter and spay more and more pets to stem the problem, and we can just show better compassion to animals since showing compassion to humans isnt working....people have to show compassion to animals before showing it to each other it seems, peopel are stubborn but when they see kinness to animals to re enforcs the need to heklp hymans as well! saving any form of life is re enforcing of the idea that all biological life is SPECIAL and WORTh saving...its miraculous and if ANYTHING its STIOLL a complex biological machine 9Any bilogical life, because even a suingle celled organism is still a complex machine with thousands maybe millins of moving parts when you count the DNA, and so just like we dont throw away working electronics we shouldnt throe away life

·

I agree. Every animals are worthy of compassion.

I think there is a lot we can do to create a better "more merciful" world.

I think us humans are very wasteful and should use our time energy and money much better.

We don't all need brand new cars every few years which seems is what everyone wants and we seem to spend a lot of times on things like spectator sports helping rich celebrities and rich coaches who earn more than the people who decide whether we are free or in prison or if our fellow citizens get shipped off to war.

Mannnn, I love these positive and beautiful posts of yours :) you're a kind soul, and I appreciate that. Are you familiar with John Rose? He focuses on how to correct the "fall of man kind", and many of his videos are quite beautiful, inspiring, and supporting :) (search his name on YouTube!)

·

I've seen and enjoyed some of his video.

I can say the same of you Robert. You're a kind soul and a inspiration to me! I really mean it.

This is a very good read @teamsteem and hence you earned my upvote and witness vote. For me , it boils down to empathy and compassion which are the virtues for being a better person. Thanks a lot and keep steeming.

I started a debate via my blog post (mentioned you too )about :Why Steem debit card will be great for all , pls see it and join the debate . Will it be a good , ok or bad idea?
Thanks

You really are TEAMsteem!

I can see how many people care about and appreciate you!
Go TeamSteem!

Wow! Thank you so much once again my friend!

I'm glad that you saw that movie. The fact that you've seen that movie bounds us in a special way through this special knowledge shared in that movie.

I'm excited to see the views on my posts too. It's really uplifting. It charges me for my next ones.

Thank you for everything!

·
·

Yes!!!
sending you SUPER charged energy!
SteemON!

This is a good reminder not to take anything for granted and stop complaining. There are so many things in life to be happy about. People should treat others better as well, as it is good vibes in one's own universe.

Informative post! Thank you! You should always be positive and life will be wonderful!

What will matter is every act of integrity.

That's my motto in life man!

·

Well, that's a really powerful one.

·
·

I hope Steemit will be here for more than 5 years! This can be a life changer for me!

Awesome!

Awesome!

I enjoyed everyone of your posts! I really need to learn more about markdown to make my posts as professional as yours.

thanks for posting your inspirational

Must agree

great post @teamsteem. I totally agree with your opinion. The article is very interesting and an inspiration for me. As long as we still have the chance to live do things that are useful for others ... and in steemit we can also do that, here we also can share and many other positive things we can do distemem ... keep on doing good To give each other and to love one another. You are so great and your way of thinking is incredible.

oh man!!! You just gave me GOOSE BUMPS!!! No... REALLY! (or chicken skin... if goose bumps sounded like a foreign language.. haha - but that is the term we use here in South Africa) - in short... this post REALLY resonated with me!

I feel PRECISELY the same about what I write and share here on @steemit!

I have ALWAYS said I want to help make a difference in people's lives... help them find their passions, their enthusiams. Assist them in untying the many knots and challenges that we are all met with daily - yet I have no qualifications in this regard.

It is just something that I FEEL I need to do!

Since I have been here on Steemit, I feel like I am actually DOING IT!!!

Life is so fleeting and if I have learnt ONE thing in my 37 years of being alive, it is that helping others is more important than anything else! I love what you are doing here! it is selfless and so, SO powerful!

I will most DEFINITELY be following your series moving forward! - Hats off to you - REALLY!!!!

I wrote a post earlier today about my journey to where I am today and by comparison it pales GREATLY to the struggles that many are faced with. I would like to contribute to what you are doing!

I would GREATLY appreciate your input on it if you care to.

https://steemit.com/life/@jaynie/the-power-of-pitbull-persistence

and if there is ANYTHING I can do to assist, other than the obvious... just TAG ME! :)

I may only be one person, but many one's make many!!!

"moving toward a more merciful world"

Very nicely written, with lot of good thoughts....
Thank you for sharing a great post....

Well and deep thinking.https://steem.com created the world with our community and it is very important that our community must be positive and pointed to a better world.we want you to reach as many people as soon as possible and that as many people think like you.and create a beautiful family with each other.

Humans are the most violent species on earth, in the way that we abuse each other and the billions of other creatures that we share the planet with. I would love this end. 🐾

·

Same here! And I know exactly what you mean and where you're coming from. We totally agree on this!

·
·
·

Most humans are peaceful though. We see anarchy all around us every day. Anarchy as in without rulers, and people get a long just fine without them. Consent is easily understood by most. Voluntary interaction is welcomed by most. It is the small minority of people who do not believe in those things that are the threat, and they naturally gravitate into positions of power. That usually ends up being government positions. :(

Beautiful .....Thanks @teamsteem

You speak the truth here! "The greater the number of laws and enactments, the more thieves and robbers there will be. " Lao Tzu

·

Haha! I don't remember reading that one from Lao Tzu. It's such a nice truth.

·
·

It is. Many studies have shown that the social pressure is stronger with people.

·

The more law, the less liberty too. Was a person or their property harmed? If no, leave them be. If yes, resolve it using arbitration, common law courts, etc.

·
·

Yes, that would unclog the system

Thank you for sharing such positivity!

Yeah steem is def getting really popular

Awesome Post .I like this.Already i am Flowers of your.Your deserve for vote.
Please check my post.
@teamsteem

Way to show more that we have in common than we expect.

Thanks brother

Enjoying life is a destination to be sought every day, I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and what matters to you most. I also believe that leaving a legacy is very important because we only have one to leave here on Earth so it might as well be one that is powerfully impactful against fear and toward love. Blessings and an upvote for you brotha

any new government is an opportunity for power seeking people to grab power. This is history, happening over and over again, including in crypto space. (So we should also improve not always just remove current governments.)

Very interesting perspective in your post. Self help is definitely a topic i am interested in and an area I think everyone should focus on. Appreciate your help with setting up a proper blog, (aligning pictures etc). upvoted and followed.
Cheers, Jay

Thank you for your initiatives @teamsteem!

I love the idea of a kinder world... centered more on cooperation than on competition. It's not that I have anything against competition, but it so often seems to disintegrate in to dispute, after which comes the misguided attempts to problem solve through violence. Which really doesn't tend to work.

I look forward to reading other installments of this series.

We can be the change in the world love this

Thanks for this post! Been trying to find a good markdown pad.

you have made a great post about life , thank you

Violence should never have it's place for a truly peaceful society. And thanks for sharing you innocent looking peaceful guy pic!!

·

It shouldn't but sometimes it is the last resort and should only be used in self defense. Even then it is a personal choice. I won't take that option away from someone, but I also won't force them to defend themselves either. Our enemies learn how to use violence as a tool against us. We should also learn how to use the same tool.

Great @teamsteem and Thanks.. Today I learned the basic value and virtue character of life to be merciful.

you are right.... @najmul upvote me.plz

Life is one, and one must live this life with a pure heart and honor sows love and good, and the world will be the way you want to see it

Thats deep yo!

Absolutely agreed, cryptocureencies will help to turn the world into a better place than it is today. I'm thrilled to see the rise of cryptos in the upcoming years and I'm glad to be a part of it.
Followed and resteemed @teamsteem

Greetings @ddot

Sounds cliche, but really, ENJOY LIFE!!!
Life is too short. It can be bitter, it can be sweet. In the end, it all depends on how you live it. Make every second count.

I like your question about what truly matters, as I have pondered the same question over an over when confronted with life changing events. I think life itself matters most, then I think knowledge comes soon after.

If all my basic needs were met without the need to actually work, I asked myself what would I then do. And the answer would be I would like to transfer my knowledge (teach) and I would like to learn.

Thanks for bringing those thoughts back in my mind.

ohhh great man very deep thought and i can follow you bcs i really your thought is heart touching....nice pic....i always forword your blogs....

·

Thanks!

Love the message. This stuff is inspiring!

I have thought a lot about the possibility of a world without violence and despite having many things that can result, I must focus on equality and the greatest possible tolerance, how is it possible to accept everyone? just believing, from your heart, that he is your brother, that he has mistakes and virtues like you, that we ourselves are not perfect and accepting that by not necessarily doing what you do, you are right.
Living in my country, you realize that violence and disrespect come from the government, for my steemit is a bubble, a parallel world, where there is mostly respect and transparency, that simply gives confidence. Cryptomonedas are the new era, the future today! independence and freedom, the perfect way to grow and believe in a better world, especially in the future! I feel honored to do my bit, to leave it on the blockchain and to be part of this future, which promises to be much better!

looking forward for your cryptocurrency article, meanwhile enjoying a peaceful life ;)

Nice to read your article. Thanks for your contributions.

Well said, we should all aim towards global enlightenment. Away with governments, censorship, media and control. If everyone was free no one would have the need for violence.

If You Agree Give upvote And Reply :)

I think as a species we are heading in the wrong direction. Humans are becoming more and more desensitized. I read recently that by the time a child is 5 years old, they have viewed over 10 thousand violent acts on TV. I guess kids are not watching Sesame Street anymore.

You have two hands, one to help yourself and the other to help others.

Thank you for this post. I share your vision to a great extent. I believe that karma and reincarnation are closely linked, and rather than working to create a better future for us and our blood family in this lifetime, we should be working towards a better future for our extended family, and that includes ALL life on earth. In doing so, we ensure that in a future life, if we come back in a less fortunate family, or even as another form of life than human, we will have a chance of going through a decent, if not pleasant life experience.

I will show mercy... to the select few Imperial loyalist on this platform. I count you as one of them that I mentioned in today's transmission.

Thank you for a very thought-provoking article @teamsteem! I have also followed your links to find out more about Witnesses and how they work (I have just voted for you)! I'm quite eager to take my Steemit journey very seriously, you are one of my go-to-guides (keep up the good work)! Much love, @sweetpea

Great message, keep on keeping on!

Without violence this world would be a much better place. I am not sure that violence is decreasing though, here by us in South-Africa people are very aggressive, you should see how car drivers behave on the road, here I don't think the notion of they don't see any other way out holds water, it is as if anger and aggression is ingrained in some of the people. Nice post, thanks for sharing

Excellent message

Thanks @teamsteem for sharing this beautiful post, sharing is always true caring.. already voted you as my steem witness... good luck!
