As opposed to merely following orders, engaging Willing cooperation should be a keenly felt Consciously Aware Decision. A Decision comprising intentional, deliberate, aforethought. A decision made entirely on purpose, for a purpose.
The deeper one's knowledge of Personal Development extends, the more pertinent this term "on purpose" becomes. And the easier it is to act in a willing purposeful manner.
On purpose indicates that via your actions you intend, and expect, to attain a predetermined result.
Cooperation is shared purpose to attain definite goals.
Sharing purpose takes precedence over an individual's personal desires.
As one’s knowledge of Mind Expansion increases - via dedicated study and practical use – insights crystallize into realization. Yet, our learning does not stop there.
Realization crystallizes into understanding. Assuredly, we grasp that we influence, and direct, our actions, by our Thoughts. Good or evil.
In our growing Conscious Awareness, Cooperation appears first as an attractive and desirable Tool. Then rapidly becomes an essential element in our Healthy Attitude to Life and in all our dealings with others.
In this way we equip ourselves with indispensable leverage.
Notwithstanding the fact that this knowledge, and the indispensable leverage that flows from it, has been available to Humanity possibly from the first glimmer of Human Intelligence, as demonstrated by Homo Habilis, it is still not widely recognized.
Even modern science exhibits a tendency to believe that our Brain is in control of our actions. Science can describe, with quite some accuracy, what takes place 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 indistinct evolutionary past.
This automatic emotion driven response was no doubt true in the dim past, when flight was a common response to the everyday problem of physical danger. During modern times however, relying on emotionally charged survival instinct tactics is totally inadequate. In our modern day World, the foremost 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. Crystal 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 our Brain, and it's extraordinary product, our Mind, will be more readily and rapidly comprehended.
In the meantime, we can empirically prove, at least to our own satisfaction, that action, does indeed have it's genesis in Thought. We can now fearlessly exploit the indispensable leverage willing cooperation offers, in every theater of life.
Purposeful and consistent willing cooperation, applied in conjunction with other laws of Personal Growth, is an immensely powerful Mind development Tool. A tool positioned at our disposal, to underpin the resolution of any problem we encounter. From simple prevention of 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 associated with a given endeavor are focused on an equatable outcome, then genuine willing cooperation is Creative. And rewarding.
The source of Creativity is where we find answers.
Willing Cooperation is not simply a specific issue tool, it is part of an overarching Healthy Attitude embodying a deep sense of Goodwill towards our fellows.
When cooperative Goodwill is reciprocated, it unleashes a Positive Energy that stimulates one's Mind to produce a cascade of ideas never to be available to squabblers and bickerers.
Genuine heartfelt cooperation prepares the individual for reciprocal Mind Stimulation. When we share Thoughts in a caring manner, it encourages the Harmonious flowing of Ideas. Which in turn encourages a torrent of Answers 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.
Willing 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.
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 uncensored emotion. Thought is in play here too. Instead of cheerfully engendering Purposeful Harmony, our undirected Thoughts produce chaos, and it’s attendant misery.
Behaving in a Selfish manner is the inordinate enemy of willing cooperation. Selfishness is a state of mind driven by uncensored emotion. This Undesirable Trait establishes a climate of diminishing trust, and Communication blackouts.
Unable to work in Harmony with others, a favored tool the selfish resort to is the antithesis of cooperation, in the guise of force. Heavy stuff.
To the concerned observer, it must be obvious, that relying on the ignorant use of Force is an entirely inefficient, expensive to maintain way of achievement that breeds rather than solves, intractable problems.
Akin to building a healthy ego, force is not a substitute for willing cooperation. Force does not work long term. But sectors of Society still embrace it. In aggressive displays of self imposed turmoil, selfish minds refuse to learn, and abide by, the Laws Of Nature.
Cooperation on an individual basis presents a striking parallel to particle behavior at the quantum level of Physics, that is, unpredictable and seemingly erratic. 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 Can Do Attitude sends a stark message to any dissenter via our regular as clockwork incremental beneficial achievements. Willing cooperation, applied on purpose, is the means to this end.
When all parties in any negotiation deliberately practice cooperation, 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, finely inter-woven with tolerance and empathy, and compassion and friendship. Akin to structural elements in an exquisite tapestry.
Trust plays a pivotal role in Sound Relationships.
If Trust dissipates, relationships falter and collapse. When cooperation is neglected disruption follows.
Other essential elements of true willing cooperation are Communication, Belief, and Faith. Along with a distinctly heightened awareness and sense of what is the Common Good.
As essential as it towards progress, Communication tends to be difficult, in particular because genuine communication involves listening, a skill well worth the polishing.
These desirable Human 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 demonstrating your competent knowledge and understanding of the Law of Cooperation. And effortlessly 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, gracefully emanating from within the individual, is a most effective vehicle to transport Humanity to the land of peace and prosperity.
Willing Cooperation Rocks!
