A "perfect world"

Re: Theos-World Zeitgeist vs Theosophy vs New World Order
My idea about a perfect world is pretty simple. If everyone behaved
as though everyone else were his/her self, if we all did to others
what we would have done to us, a lot of the details would take care
of themselves. After all, we are each other. That which seems to
separate us is only an illusion. Nothing is anything except in
relationship to other things.
It's good to hear from you again.
Your "perfect world" is of course the ideal and yes,
we are each other, in Reality.
May I respectfully suggest however that this perspective
is perhaps relevant for those in a relative state
of material comfort.
In our present "reality" there is great disparity and
disharmony between others, between rich and poor,
between "haves" and "have nots."
One of the fundamental laws of nature is survival, which
initially applies to our physical being.
Nature, karma and "reality" force those who have not
food to fight others who have. Not to so do would be to
commit suicide, that is, to cause or to allow oneself to die.
This "crime" is heightened were we to thereby commit our
dependant children to a similar fate through our inaction.
Whilst this situation may have been caused by past karmic
deeds or misdeeds, nonetheless it is our current "reality"
and cannot, nor should it be denied.
A man fighting for the survival of his children, necessitating
the destruction of another, is in accord with nature's and
Would the combatants wish, which you offer as the ideal,
to have done to them what they are doing to the other?
It seems in this situation the "details would (not) take care of
themselves", at least not in a mutually harmonious manner to
which the ideal suggests.
In contrast to its intent, the ideal of "do unto others" from the
perspective of "That which seems to separate us is only an illusion"
may not always apply as perfectly or appropriately as we
might wish in this "reality" at this time?
What do you think?
