So far we have created a world that was dominated by ego-centric thinking. I call it the ego-ciety, because it has hardly anything to do with society (social world) or humanity (humane world). So what’s the next step? Very simple. We should now transform into a group of human beings that realize they are on this earth to care for each other. That should be the top priority. Because the more we care for each other (service to others), the less there will be need to care for ourselves (service to self) because it is already taken care of collectively. The more care for each other, the more happy everyone will become and the more we can enjoy our beautiful world. So try to say goodbye to the greedy, selfish service-to-self mindset, and say hello to the giving and caring service-to-others mindset. This I call Sociegy, a Society oriented strategy which if fueling the transformation from Egociety to Careity.

This blog is inspired by the following quote of Shirdi Sai Baba: “Before you speak, ask yourself: does it improve the silence?”. If you are uncertain, you might be influenced by this quote. It could hold you back from speaking out aloud or if you’re a blogger, hold you back from writing/publishing. But if you think about it more deeply, the time is here that at least some people on earth should improve certain silence. The silence that is still here because many people are afraid to break it open. Afraid, because we all know we are struggling with the way forward, caught in self invented societal systems that have no real feedback loop (e.g. eternal growth, totally free market etc.) and are now running out of control. And we really don’t know yet what to do about it. So it’s time to investigate the control loops of these systems. Shed some light upon it. Write light into the silence of the control loop designs. Break the silence by investigating it’s original drivers. Which often were deeply rooted in egoistic, service-to-self paradigmas. Now it’s time to start developing control loops that add a new service level: service-to-others. So in the end we have not open-loop but closed-loop control systems where both service-to-self and service-to-others are reinforcing control stimuli, balancing both gathering and sharing drivers.
