Willing cooperation can, and should be, a conscious decision. Comprising intentional, deliberate, aforethought. A decision made entirely on purpose, for a purpose. The deeper the knowledge of Personal Development one possesses, the more pertinent the term on purpose becomes. And the easier it is to act in a purposeful manner.
On purpose indicates that, via your actions, you expect, and intend, to attain a predetermined result. Cooperation is shared purpose to attain definite consequences. When cooperating, the shared purpose takes precedence over individual participant’s personal desires.
As one’s knowledge of Mind Expansion increases - via dedicated study and practical application – insights crystallize into realization. Realization crystallizes into understanding. We gradually grasp that we influence, and direct, all our actions by our Thoughts.
In our dawning Conscious Awareness, Cooperation appears first as an attractive and desirable Tool. Then rapidly becomes an essential element in our approach to Life and our dealings with others.
In this way we equip ourselves with an indispensable leverage.
Although this knowledge has been available to Humanity possibly from the first glimmer of Human intelligence, demonstrated by Homo Habilis, it is still not widely recognized.
Even modern science tends to believe our Brain is in control of our actions. Science can describe, with quite some accuracy, what happens in specific locations of this magnificent organ when one is faced with a given task, or predicament, and our response to it. Justifying whatever the response may be as a survival tactic inherent in the dim evolutionary past.
This was no doubt true in the dim past, when flight was a common response to the common problem of physical danger. In modern times however, relying on emotionally charged survival instinct tactics is totally inadequate. In our modern day World, the major threat to our well-being is our fellow Human and his selfish motives. We can no longer run from danger, in a state of panic or otherwise. Clear Thinking is paramount.
Once it is irrefutably proven, scientifically, that action has it's genesis in Thought, and not in primitive genetic programming, the functioning of the Brain, and it's amazing product, the Mind, will be more readily and rapidly comprehended.
In the meantime we can empirically prove to ourselves that action, does indeed, have it's genesis in Thought. We can fearlessly exploit the indispensable leverage willing cooperation offers, in every theater of life.
Purposeful and consistent willing cooperation, in conjunction with other laws of personal growth, is an immensely powerful Mind development Tool. A powerful tool positioned at our disposal, to underpin the resolving of any, and every problem, we encounter. From preventing minor disputes between two individuals all the way up to countering disasters that threaten the survival of the Human Race. Such as Corona-virus.
Where all parties involved in a given endeavor are focused on an equatable outcome, then genuine willing cooperation is Creative.
The source of Creativity is where we find answers.
Willing cooperation is not simply a specific issue tool, it is an overarching Attitude embodying a deep sense of Goodwill towards our fellows.
When cooperative Goodwill is reciprocated, it unleashes positive energy and stimulates the mind to produce a cascade of ideas not available to squabblers and bickerers.
Genuine heartfelt cooperation prepares the individual for reciprocal mind stimulation and the flowing of ideas in such a harmonious fashion that builds a torrent capable of solving any problem the involved minds focus on.
It matters not how complex a situation may be, what matters is a cooperative mindset.
Cooperation is not merely a tool of convenience, it is a major tool of progress, per se. Like the ripples generated when a pebble is tossed into a still pond, the effects of harmonious cooperation spread in ever widening spheres, benefiting all it encompasses.
On the other hand, a willful lack of cooperation can, and does, indiscriminately destroy partnerships of every affiliation. Including scientific, business, sporting and political. Not to mention marriages and friendships.
Lack of cooperation supports actions driven by our uncensored emotions. this is Thought at work here too. Instead of engendering purposeful harmony, our undirected Thoughts produce chaos, and it’s attendant misery.
Selfishness is the mortal enemy of willing cooperation. Again, driven by our uncensored emotions. This Undesirable Trait establishes a climate of diminishing trust, and Communication blackouts.
Unable to work in harmony with others, a favored tool of the selfish is the antithesis of cooperation, in the guise of force.
To the concerned observer it must be obvious that force is an inefficient, and expensive to maintain, method of achievement that breeds rather than solves problems.
Akin to building a healthy ego, Force is not a substitute for willing cooperation. And does not work long term. But sectors of Society still employ it. In aggressive demonstrations of self imposed turmoil, selfish minds refuse to learn, and abide by, the Laws Of Nature.
Cooperation on an individual basis runs a striking parallel to particle behavior at the quantum level of Physics, that is, unpredictable and seemingly erratic. But of course It should not be this way. This condition merely emphasizes the undirected nature of the Thought patterns that produce erratic behavior.
The good news is, as individuals, we can decide to stabilize the way we behave by developing a mindset and approach to problem solving that allows us to consistently work in harmony with like minded souls.
At the same time our Attitude sends a striking message to any dissenter via our regular as clockwork incremental beneficial achievements. Purposeful willing cooperation is the means to this end.
When all parties in any negotiation deliberately practice cooperation, generous Goodwill flows like a copious waterfall. Concessions, where necessary, are easier to grant.
In a cooperative climate you will notice nuances of dignity and grace, inter-woven along with compassion, tolerance, empathy, and friendship. Akin to structural elements in an exquisite tapestry.
Trust plays a central role. Without trust, relationships will falter and collapse. When cooperation is rejected or it is violated, devastation follows.
Other essential elements of true willing cooperation are Communication, Belief, and Faith. And a distinctly heightened awareness and sense of what is the Common Good.
As essential as it is, Communication is difficult, because it involves listening.The ability to listen is a skill well worth the polishing.
These desirable Qualities are usually not to be found in other types of relationship.
Cooperation is the most effective path to achievement that is available to Humanity. There are many wonderful people cooperating across the world. We who take personal development seriously can set a sterling example. Simply by establishing our willingness to work with each other in a spirit of total harmony.
When you consistently act in this manner, on purpose, you are capably demonstrating your knowledge and understanding of the Law of Cooperation. And acknowledging the essential nature of this Law to Humanities harmonious growth.
How we, as individuals, cooperate, contributes in some measure, small or large, to the future direction Society takes. Responsible, intelligent, knowledgeable willing cooperation, originating within the individual, is the most effective vehicle to transport us to the land of peace and prosperity.
Willing Cooperation Rocks!
