“…simply make things better for someone else, as if I were to be born again, and that someone else, and it doesn't have to be me, but it could be someone like me, that they would have a better life than I had, that everyone was better. There is something seriously wrong with everyone, and that is something I observed when I was very young. We are the problem, and we need to become better, because we are fucking everything up.”
“So this is who I am. There is something seriously wrong with everyone and we need to fix it, if not for us, then for the future generations."
"Everything I have done in this life, and everything I will do, is for this purpose.”

Day-30: Commitments are a Key to Aligning to What is Best for All, a look at some evidence from a psychology study

-->
So a really cool point opened up today in my social psychology class. We were looking at the tragedy of the commons, and the prisoners dilemma and ways that social psychology has found that may be useful/relevant. Both of these terms are common situations that are studied in different domains, one being Political science and another Economics.
            So one point I remember I thought of in class but did not get a chance to share was that if one simply were to consider the factor of time and long term costs, then the tragedy of the commons and prisoners dilemma are straight forward. If you abuse everyone then you are giving permission to everyone else to abuse and so you guarantee that there will be drastic consequences for all, including yourself. So there is something wrong, or uneducated in the human in seeing the short term benefits, and see that through time the events that will come to pass. This is important then in educating children to plan ahead, and see how small acts have big consequences. Another interesting point that is related is how people see that there is a loss of benefit for everyone though do not emphasize (at least my teacher) the costs to everyone. If fisherman abuse the oceans, THEY will pay the cost ALONG with everyone else. If you abuse the group, YOU will pay the cost, it is certain and only takes time. So there is plenty reasons, obvious, commonsense, here, to not abuse at all.
            Another point is a specific study that found that when participants made verbal commitments/agreements to do something with the group, in a group context/discussion they would more likely honor their agreement, even when the abuse would not be directly seen by others. So this shows there is a sense of integrity in the human, in the power of the spoken word. This is similar to what we do at desteni, where in writing we make a verbal commitment visible to all of how we live what is best for all. There is in the study defectors/abusers though I made the point aloud in class that perhaps with a discussion whenever a member breaks a commitment to reestablish commitments will lead to less abuse/defection, though this would have to be tested and proven. - THIS IS THE STUDY -If you want access, contact me.

So what Social Psychology knows is very little. The entirety of the relationships within a human for one singular moment is not taken into consideration. Often a psychologist is motivated to find something “new” and if a psychologist dared to discover all relationships all points in a moment within the human and his relationship to the environment, then there would be nothing left for the psychologist to do… This also would require effort and attention and the psychologist is too much in fear and/or lazy to pursue this, part being their fear of survival, and that it is easier to study something narrow and in isolation without placing the necessary effort to understand all points in a singular moment.

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to as society not see that abusing what is here for all, for my self-interest I will give permission for others to abuse and so create a society of abusers, that will in time lead to great costs to each one, including those who did not abuse, and so it is the simple commonsense to stop abuse for oneself and for all.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not see the simplicity and obvious commonsense that as a prisoner in the prisoner dilemma I give permission for abuse by abusing the other and so it is to end abuse by not being a prisoner of abuse and self-ish self-interest but be honest and real so we can start recreating this world from that of abuse to trust and responsibility where no child will be afraid and all fear will be taken by adults and shown to be a system within us and so it is not accept and allow it but live and apply here.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not see the intricate and intimate connection that fear has with abuse, where by accepting and allowing the fear of being abused we will become the monster we fear and become an abuser out of fear, where really if we stop accepting and allowing fear we realize abuse will only lead to more abuse of myself and for everyone.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not see the self-interest in fear, as fear can be an excuse to act on one’s own self-interest/desires, as we fear to put too much effort, we fear having to dedicate and commit, we fear losing our pleasures, and so avoid then all discussion and consideration how the fear is in fact leading to abuse, and how the self-interest is leading to abuse, never questioning why we fear, what fear is for, what is fear hiding???
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not see how small acts have big consequences, that this reality is REALLY a Reflection of ourselves, as the current state of the economy and War, and fighting, poverty, and suffering/abuse, is all revealing points we are seeing as “ok” within us and are accepting and allowing, where, one example is to deny this world as real by calling it an illusion and so revealing we are denying self at a chance of life and living and getting to know intimately, for the first time who self is underneath the years of layering, all points, and each layer. 

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing a world where the purpose of psychology is not for immediate support and interventions that create a world that is best for all, but to simply describe the world and human nature and explain away why things are, without any solutions and HOW we can change, as this is seen in the literature that psychologists are interested in fame, knowledge or power, whether it be in the classroom, or as simply an elite worker of the system.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing a psychology system that does not work for what is best for all and find practical solutions, and pave the way for how human nature can practically change in as short amount of time possible yet with the same effective result of a human that cares for all, as measured in their actions/decisions. 
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to through abusing children and abusing the world that will be inherited by children to simply destroy that which is everyone’s birthright on this planet, including children, plants, and animals, and so I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to abuse all that is here and so is everyone birthright to have access to.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not see the obvious commonsense that no one escapes responsibility and consequence and we are all held accountable by our actions and decisions, and so abuse will find a way back to self.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not approach the abusers in discussion with the starting point of correcting that which is here and so is the birthright of all into the alignment of supporting what is here so it remains available to all by having all make commitments of how they will practically and visibly change as this will assist and support them To Change and so ensure a world that is viable and supporting life.
I commit myself to utilize commitments effectively as practical, visible, and measurable actions that can be taken by me that would align me to what is best for all.
I commit myself to assist and support life to flourish in this existence by taken measures actions that support life through the equal money system.
I commit myself to write JTL blogs to assist those who do not see the simplicity of physical living and how we can change through standing for and as the equal money system, within integrity as we uphold our commitments to life and an equal money system that values life.

  1. Cool! You should go for psychology because we definitely need real psychology in this world in understanding human nature and the mechanics of consciousness in FACT, so that we may be able to bring forth actual change, starting with ourselves and our relationships in this world. Obviously psychology has thus far been used rather to control and manipulate the masses and to make profit, than to actually understand and support the human psyche.
    Detailed practical support is provided at Desteni, I am grateful to walk this eye-opening process towards self-empowerment as life!
