Cooperation

If all people in this world can learn how to share things with others, I’m sure the world will be a better place.

The world is becoming harder and harder each day, but cooperation can help people to stay together and have less worries.

I have been in touch with the jewelry makers in Kosovo Community in Uganda (mentioned in my last blog) and talking with them about how to cooperate by sharing things with each other and doing things together, and they have already started cooperating with each other.

For example, if they need to buy things from the market, all of them do not go to the market. Just they send one person to go and purchase things for all of them. That helps them to minimize the cost of transportation. Otherwise everyone will be paying for transport to go to the market for shopping. I’m so happy because they are putting my advice into action, and it is helping them.

Everyone can promote cooperation wherever he or she lives so that we can help the world. When people cooperate and share what they have, it helps them to spend less and still live well. And it helps them be happy with each others.

Cooperation is love in action, but without cooperation, people can become afraid and greedy when times are hard. For example, when people receive funds to help orphans, they use those funds in a different way! By building their own beautiful house or buying an expensive car. They are doing that, because of lack of cooperation.

This is a very big project and I know we can help many people, because life is going to be very hard in the future. Cooperation is a way of preparing for the future, because you can see where the world is heading now days!

We all need to work together for a better world. If you have any experiences about cooperation or ideas how to promote cooperation, I’d like to hear them.

Put yourself in that person’s shoes

I feel inspired to share with you all something about considering each other. We do a lot of things to make our friends happy, but sometimes we also do things that hurt their feelings. I observed one important way to be connected to each other, and have a better relationship.

Here is the way: Put yourself in that person’s shoes before saying something or doing something with that person. It will help you to understand everything you need to know about him or her and feel connected with that person.

When you put yourself in someone’s shoes, you start feeling how beautiful that person is. People would not hurt each other if they would have that consideration. For example, if someone makes a mistake and you correct him or her, then another day that person makes another mistake. Before you correct that person you need much consideration first, how is he or she going to feel? Maybe that person will think that you are judging them a lot, or you don’t appreciate what they are doing. You need to feel how the person is going to feel. Then you can correct that person without any doubt between both of you. And it may be easy for that person to fix his or her mistake.

Do you know that you can even understand a tree, what it needs? The good thing is we all know how other people feel, we can feel it. Every human being has that sense of feeling and knowing, but to use those senses is sometimes hard! That’s why sometimes we make mistakes, and people fail to be on the same page. Because they don’t want to put themselves in another person’s shoes.

Some people don’t want to pay a price for the benefit of their friends. That’s the reason why people take things for granted. For example, easy life, easy love, instead of considering people’s feelings. I think the world will be a better place if everyone would be considering one another.
