We are part of humanity. Humanity is the highest level of ourselves. Humanity is part of who we are. Whatever we make of our lives matter on an individual level, but more than that, it matters to how humanity is shaped.
According to Erhard, creating a context of a world that works for everyone is not simply a step to move humanity forward. Instead, it is the context by which our history will begin to make sense. Transformation fulfills what has gone before it. You and I have a role in the process.
In the words of Albert Schweitzer, “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: The only ones among you who will be truly happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” We cannot live for ourselves. Genuine happiness, on an individual level, can only be experienced by serving others; by serving humanity.
Service of others is not an easy thing to give. You expand yourself; you expand your ability when you serve. The process of meeting the challenge of delivering the needs of others enables you to grow as an individual person.
Serving others is a huge project in itself. What can you do for humanity? The Bible says you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). This means you were not mass-produced. You have a unique skills set. You have a unique role to play in this world.
Erhard tells us that we must decide what project we are willing to take complete responsibility for. Commit to this project. Ron Smothermon (1980) tells us that relationships exist within defined boundaries. People have a certain level of expectations toward us. If others cannot expect any commitment from us, then there is no true relationship. We communicate commitment in our relationships.
In any relationship, we are the ones who will decide whether commitments can be spoken or unspoken, and we are the ones who will clarify and define the commitments or even avoid making any commitments (Smothermon, 1980).
However, we must know that relationships wherein commitments do not exist do not actually work. Whether you claim that you do not know the essence commitment or you do not know how to commit, you are still responsible for declaring this with the people involved, most especially to those who are expecting something from you.
As you express your commitment, you can trigger others to do the same. This is already a step closer towards creating a world that works for everyone. Your willingness to express yourself in commitment is an essential part the process. Do not wait for something to happen to you before you commit to transforming the world. Erhard tells us to take responsibility for making something happen. Keep at it until you create a successful experience for everyone. Find a mirror; look at the person staring back at you. Tell that person, “You can make a difference.”
