Introduction to Altruism
A task for the intelligentsia
The word Altruism means loving other living beings. Being an Altruist during my lifetime, I was trying to find out what people need to live happily because since the ancient times quarrels between tribes and the people outside have been carried on up until today. Therefore, I put all my attention to the structure of nature where all of those said beings live in harmony as they depend on each other.
During this search, I have found out what binds these groups into one unity – Altruism. Altruism is the hidden engine in trees and other plants that make them provide food for all living beings. Altruism is the bond that binds parents to spend a part of their life for the well-being of their children, and incites neighbors to help each other.
People are not aware enough about the secret motives of their daily actions. Now, they have lost contact with nature and do not find any more time to reflect about the real basics of their life.
This is why I wrote a book in which I describe the way I discovered how essential altruism is, and its important process of keeping each other alive. In my book, I also try to give the readers an insight about the teachings of many religions.
Nowadays religions are still the main obstacle in communities to propose the same guidelines of behavior for all humans based on our actual knowledge and logical thinking to form a community that lives in harmony. Therefore in this book, I try to find ways to unify the different visions of those religions; I appeal to different religions to reunite and to seek ways to adjust their theories in order to overcome practical needs and knowledge.
With a series of challenges and hard work, I have experienced wealth and I have realized how money and the authority it provides, can shape a person into becoming someone who is insensitive to the sentiments of others. They feel so superior and want more and more of the same thing. In my story, I explain this contagious experience that affects the powerful. This is also the reason for the imbalance between the rich and the poor in the world. I write how I have experienced that altruism is the antidote for this kind of evil. It was a long way back.
