If everyone in the world did one altruistic thing or helped one person everyday, that would be over 7 billion good acts done in a day.

If everyone in the world did one altruistic thing or helped one person (without selfish motivation) everyday that would be over 7 billion good acts done in a day, 49 billion a week, 196 billion per month and 2555 billion or 2.555 trillion. See the big picture now? Would make a big difference to everyone including you and me.

  • Nov 29 2011: Ben, I think your thinking and expression of that is right on the nose. We have the power right now to co-create the world of our highest dreams. All we need to do is to live according to our highest, positive beliefs. No point in waiting for others to get it. I suspect we have begun. And I know we are having positive impacts. At this very moment good things are happening to good people. Some of those things may have been caused by good things you or I did 3 or 7 years ago. Occasionally, I receive feedback from people that things I said or did a long time ago had positive impacts. There are lag times in information flows. I believe.....positive cause/positive effect. Let us continue. There is a contagion of positive acts. You and I are a part of it. Everyone who says or does anything that is positive is a part of it. This is our world. Let's co-create it to make everyone healthy, prosperous and happy. May as well.

      Dec 1 2011: Couldn't agree more. This is exactly what we need to do spread the idea however we can and hope that people see the benefit from doing good things!
      • Dec 1 2011: We are doing it and we are succeeding. Maybe things will speed up. I hope so. In the meantime, we will just continue doing all the positive things we do and having positive impacts of which we are mostly unaware. But who cares! We understand the positive cause/positive effect relationships and we are aware of our individual and joint power to accomplish all of our positive goals. It's hard to see sometimes, but I know we are succeeding. Right on!
