Working and Giving Away

Every single human being is different and unique and this is surely a nice thing. But we are used to group ourselves in communities, in cities, in countries and so on. A group of people is nothing but a kind of a community of purpose or a community of some kind of similarity. If we concern the work there are two types of people – which work and which do not work. The second group consists all people which are not able to (ill, disabled) or are prohibited (children) to work or allowed not to work (retirees) for some reasons. The social system was invented in order to ensure that the second group can survive. The idea is just to take some money or goods from the working people and give then to the not-working. It is a nice system. It is a system which ensures that we give away if we have and that we help people which don’t have.

But there is a “dark side” of the social system. There are people which just don’t won’t to work or work, but in such a manner that they don’t give anything away. Can we exclude them from this social system? Acctually not. We are still supposed to give them – we don’t want to let someone die from starvation. The problem hier is that some weeknesses of the system make it possible that some people never work and never give away. And the logical question is how to make them work? Ok, there are some people which give away without working, so let ask the better question: “How to make people give away?” Is it possible to change the system in a better way. Sure, but it won’t be a solution – there is no perfect system and every single system can be corrupted.

The only possible solution is to make people really understand what it means to give away, to explain why we need to give away. To explain that when we give away, we progress, we evolve, we become better, we create. If we suddenly remove the social system, the give away system, we will see that only a small part of the people will still give away. Most people will stop to give away. Why? I think one reason is that our “give-away” social system is not well explained. The people which work does simply not realise that they give away or if so they don’t realise that they make something positive, that they help other people.

I think it is high time to start to act in this area. To start to explain what it means to give away. To give away not because we must do it, but because we want to do it. To give away and to understand the meaning of giving away. And we must start to change out social system from a system which makes us give away unconsciously to a system which enables us to give away consciously. It was before 2000 when Christi came and we have still not learned his lessons. His mission was not to change our thinking (as the system nowadays), but to learn us how we can change our thinking on our own. He wanted to change our Old-Testament-thinking – “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth” in the New-Testament-thinking – “if you have two shirts, give one to someone who needs it”. The first is acctually giving away through order and the second is giving away because of inner persuation. The conclusion is – start to give away, because you know consciously that you want to do it and why you need to do it.

On the other hand there are many people, which understand these notions quite well. They understand what it means to give away and they want to give away more than the social system allows them. These people must be given the chance to act. Such people can do much more, can give much more away if they have the freedom of giving away without the restriction of the social system, which makes you capable of giving away almost only by working. There already many ideas how to change the social system and I think it will gradually evolve in a better one. We must just have the strong willingness to make it better.
