Technology gives us convenience and comfort, intelligence of materials are more innovative. Our ways of life is more meaningful. We have so many choices for fun, happiness, mobility, communication, and interaction. The progress gets better for our condition.
It is more convenience of everything, that are supposed to make our lives easier. Perhaps, those means we are experiencing are deceiting us. Accessible comforts become more widely available, features we don’t need are overwheming us. News things come with more expenses. Higher means of features and pleasures too. These desires cause us higher expectation for working harder so that we earn more and pay for them.
It becomes more complicated again, it is riskier for our social securities, social issues that becoming more of concern because a simply way of life is no where you can fit in.
Choice For A Home, Shell, Or Cubical Commodity Of Debt
Once before, you have choice to live in the outer city, dream of fresh foods, and local organics. But as you would do so, cause you harder life, that many cannot handle. We move to cities, we migrate to metropolis centers of the world, we do every possible effort to work in another city, another country that hope to give us higher income and take care of our family. That alone, we create higher demand for energy consumption and natural resources excavations for city developments. And yet, that pushes further to the financial system, people trade for real estate developments.
Those housing affordabily no longer easy to life, because they are no longer become traditional mean for shelter, but we live in a shell. A shell that has interest, a product of investment that we pay high for rent, and their owners pay high for interests, they use them as investment products. We live in a commodity of debt that supposed to be just meant as a home.
Concerns for Sustainable Environment and Weather Migration
The weather isn’t normal. Global warming and new wave of heat migration is coming.
On ordinary life basis. We are busy with economic concerns, we tend to forget that our affordability for longterm on this planet has become more of a problem. Social stability are supposed to get better, but here we are in same old global conflict and everyday problematic between us and our environment. Natural sustainability are becoming burdened as our population grow. It is the over consumption that hurts our habitat.
The concerns has become too much, that are beyond our hearts and minds with courage to look into the depth of these issues. Even if we care about them, we feel that such problems are too much for what our life can contribute to solve those problems. This is the complexity of this modern world we are living by.
There is a relationship of individual with society and natural world. As a consumer, we consume everything beyond the natural resource can supply us. A social dilemna for status quo has create my temptations that a person can easily fall to debt. If one is unable to manage those temptations, the person could never get off debt and cause many hazard to environment for over consumption. The phase or failure, challenge, or true happiness depends on how much one is able to understand controlled necessities and loss of consumer quotience.
About our consumption.
Consumption, means that we use natural resource for necessities, and pleasure. We produce them, consume them, and claim ownership.
We use every mean for the expense of mother nature.
How much can we consume?
How much can we afford?
How much can we own?
I have concerns for our world today.
Human population is growing most rapidly than ever in human evolution. What is going to happen if we consume too much and we cannot manage to sustain our natural resource?
Because of our over population, and over consumption rate, the natural world soon cannot be able to sustain. We need works and efforts, solutions be put into this formula.
There are three primary entities that are eminent to our existence.
Each of our individuality
The natural world
In this perspective, there are three entities, our individuality, mother nature, and our society are interacting to support our existence.
Normally, we only care what happens to our conscinousness, we take concerns about what happens to us for granted. We do not think much about how much we rely on our environment and our society to nuture our condition. We do not think much about keeping them in balance, simply because the problem isn’t within our personal ability to solve problems that we consider they are a social problem, and mother nature’s cycle. These are social problems, environmental problem, and personal problem interchanged that can lead us going to perished.
Yet, if we cause the problem, we can fix them, altogether social problem, environmental problems, and personal problem at a personal level by each of us. We are responsible to look into depth of how these entities are related.

The Values of “Success”.
Success can be defined with four values, according to core principle.
Success equals = Happiness; Self; Family; and Wealth.
Happiness = Sharinging, giving, caring.

@Ideal (Wisdom, Moral, Perfection) v.s. @Realistic (Hardship (majority of suffering), hope for pace of mind, envirionment and deal with it or without a scope of aim).
There fore, the golden goal of Core is balancing your lifestyle. To keep you balanced, understand what is ideal to you and what is actually realistic. Because your progress is effect by your self and society.
Without society, there is not civilization. How you stay floated in the “social currencies” is up to you “personal currencies”. Those are other ingredients that we are going to cover.
