"Which of the world's problems will you be ignoring today?"
I just wondered if this twitter post was related to some things I said here. Maybe that's me being paranoid LOL or maybe there is some sort of negativity about it?
Anyway, I didn't mean what I said in a way like I think anyone is bad. I just thought it would be interesting to discuss. I don't want anyone to feel bad or negative, I want people to feel fine, good, no worry etc!!
Helping others & making a difference in ANY WAY/WHATEVER WAY is so meaningful.
Rich people might have made more of a positive difference in the world and given more to charity than middle class people so you cannot judge someone who has given more than you/made more of a positive difference than you anyway.
Like people judge someone wealther than them for having excess they don't need, but what if that wealthier person has made more of a positive difference anyway even if they have excess?
Who is the real one who hasn't given enough?
that is another way of looking at it
Also another point is is it unethical to give away something that is really meaningful from a person? (Like Abundance if it is really meaningful to them)
Just like Abundance may be someones hobby like comedy may be someone elses hobby? One persons joy may be abundance, anothers joy may be photography?
Is it ethical then, that people to whom abundance is highly meaningful, should sacrafice abundance for the virtue of giving to and helping others as much as is materially and financially possible? (Only living in a bare essentials way) To work towards better equality of opportunities and education in the world and assisting the hungry?
Like Whats meaningful to people is meaningful.
Points above are important.
I had to add all that on, I still feel my original posts had mostly valid points though even though its a joy kill cause in this culture joy=having more than we need. People need happiness and joyful experience. Not necessarily more than we need. More than we need can be very amazing and fun though!
And by more than we need I don't mean technology and the more than we need stuff that actually is making/helping positive steps forward for everyone.
Also Wealth may usually reflect that that person has "given/created a wealth" in some way to society through superior work gotten done/producing/creating etc. So have received back what they've earned.
I haven't done anything wrong in this thread.
