To create a beautiful thriving ‘new’ world, a fundamental change is needed. We can only flourish as individuals if the whole world can flourish. This is a profound change in how we understand life itself. A change that transcends a change in our economic, educational and political system. Now is the time to set this change in motion and we can do this if we understand that change can only be lasting if we do it for the greater good.
An alternative environment
Our goal now is to set up the infrastructure for an alternative environment that offers another avenue by which we will conduct our relationships. I’ll be interested in what a person studies, his or her areas of interest, and the social circles to which he or she belongs, instead of their jobs. Our job will lose its status as an person’s ruler because people will engage only in what is essential to society.
Shifting into the projected image
To adapt to this future image, we need to imagine it and plan how we will shift from the current image tinto the projected one. We need to change from within, which is no simple task. It will entail revolutionizing our perceptions, sensations, and approaches to reality-a redesign of all our thought patterns. There is no greater revolution than this one.
Everything will change
Such a change affects the essence of life, the reason why we get up in the morning and go to sleep at night, the thoughts that run through our heads during the day, our achievements, and how others relate to us. Even the structure of society will change accordingly, and of course, the education system will evolve into a radically different one.
While the nature of the change is still unknown to most of us, it is nonetheless our future. The baby steps we initiate preparing for it, gradually moving toward it , will allow us to see the direction of the shift and understand and welcome the process that is bound to happen.
Processes will be unfold
It is similar to a child walking into kindergarten for the first time. he doesn’t know what he has entered. He doesn’t know that it’s a part of an entire education system that will accompany him through the rest of his childhood years. Similarly, we are not yet aware of the global system and the processes that are about to unfold.
To balance our society in synchronicity with nature
Nature demands that we be in “equivalence of form,” meaning “in balance.”As Nature is circular, a complete and harmonious system in all its actions, so should human society be built-circular and synchronized in all its parts. We will all benefit from being part of a balanced state, and the right connections between us will grant us “Nature’s blessing.”
A sense of meaninglessness
Modern society has created a reality based on limited and purposeful connections, whose aim is to achieve very limited goals. Alongside this experience of limited connections, we have begun to feel a sense of meaninglessness in our lives. This is creating a crisis in every realm of our personal and social lives.
the next stage of human evolution
Today, we’re at the threshold of a revolution. The gap between the environment we have created an Nature’s imperatives is taking its toll. New conditions, both within us and in our environment, are pressing us with growing intensity, changing us from within and disintegrating the oppressive patterns of human society. Nature is pushing us to reach the next stage of our evolution as humans, to come to view life from a different perspective.
Another meaning of life
The reality in which work takes over most of our time is about to change. When that happens, people will not sit idly by, but will begin searching for another meaning to life. This is when we will truly learn what it means to “be human.” As work hours shrink to the necessary minimum for sustenance, we will fill our lives with engagements appropriate to our level as human beings, engagements where we feel our souls.
Change of our perception of life
This is a radical change that implies reorganization of the entire human society. This change is mandatory; we will have to go through this process due to pressures from within and without, or through awareness and initiative to immediately begin paving the way toward our new destination. Then, our perception of life will change, our economy will change, and industries will shrink and shift from over-production to producing solely what is needed to sustain us.
Why are we here in this life?
Work will become nothing more than a necessary tool for our survival, and our perception of the growing unemployment will change. Our free time will be channeled toward the primary purpose of our lives – to answer the question, “Why are we here in this life?” This question will arise in the majority of humanity, and will become the issue that directs our lives and all of our engagements.
The world is finally beginning its gradual approach to the revelation of evil. People already understand that, on one hand, they cannot do anything about the ego because it is human nature, yet on the other hand, if we fail to eradicate it, it will kill us.
Therefore, people are beginning to think of how to eliminate the ego. Slowly, they try all possible methods and realize that none of them work. Our situation is hopeless. We are somewhere on the outskirts of a galaxy, spinning around a dwarf star on a tiny planet completely soiled with our waste. Life is ending and there are no perspectives. We are alone in the universe and soon there will be no life on planet Earth either. As they say, lights out.
A multidimensional reality
Our reality is multidimensional, and the revelation of the upper layer beyond our reality depends on our perception. If we change our internal perception of reality, we will suddenly find ourselves living in another world, as if teleportation had occurred and I suddenly feel myself in a different state, in another place.
This is how the situation looks frankly, but this is the revelation of evil at a point from which you can start thinking of what can be done. Perhaps someone would still give advice on how to save us. So, the ear begins to get tuned to such waves that were previously imperceptible: that there is life beyond our reality.
Change of perception
This is all because I changed my internal values and began to live in another world. This world is said to exist only so that we would leave it. The escape from our world is the only reason for the existence of the universe, our planet, and the people on Earth. In general, this world is imaginary, and we begin to live in the real world.
How can we change reality? It can change only if each of us changes. Reality depends on me and is felt inside me. Therefore, two people can see the same thing but one is crying and the other one is rejoicing. It all depends on how we perceive what is happening. I see everything as necessary steps toward correction, bringing us closer to goodness.1
Plato once said, “Necessity is the mother of invention,” and he was right.
The only way we can learn anything is by first wanting to learn it. It’s a very simple formula: when we want something, we do what it takes to get it. We make the time, muster the energy, and develop the necessary skills. It turns out that the engine of change is desire.
The way our desires evolve both defines and designs the entire history of humanity. As humankind’s desires developed, they urged people to study their environment so they could fulfill their wishes. Unlike minerals, plants, and animals, people constantly evolve. For every generation, and for each person, desires grow stronger and stronger.
This engine of change—desire—is made of five levels, zero through four. About 5,000 years ago, the will to receive was at level zero. Today, as you might have guessed, we are at level four—the most intense level. But in the early days when the will to receive was at level zero, desires were not strong enough to separate us from nature and from each other. In those days, this oneness with nature was the natural way of life. People didn’t know any other way. They didn’t even know that they could be separated from nature, nor did they want to be.
In fact, in those days, humanity’s communication with nature and with each other flowed so seamlessly, words were not even necessary; instead, people communicated by thought, much like telepathy. It was a time of unity, and the whole of humanity was like a single nation.
But while still in Mesopotamia, a change occurred: people’s desires started to grow and they became more egoistic. People began to want to change nature and use it for themselves. Instead of wanting to adapt themselves to nature, they began wanting to change nature to fit theirneeds. They grew detached from nature, separated and alienated from it and from each other. Today, many centuries later, we are discovering that this was not a good idea. It simply doesn’t work.
Wanting to be in control
Naturally, as people began to place themselves in opposition to their environment and their societies, they no longer related to others as kin and to Nature as home. Hatred replaced love, and people grew apart and became detached from one another. In consequence, the single nation of the ancient world was divided. It first split into two groups that drifted to the east and to the west. The two groups continued to divide and splinter, eventually forming the multitude of nations we have today.
Ever since that split—when our desires grew from level zero to level one—we have been confronting nature. Instead of correcting the ever-growing egoism to remain as one with nature, we have built a mechanical, technological shield to protect us from it. The initial reason we developed science and technology was to secure our shielded existence away from nature’s elements. It turns out, however, that whether we are aware of it or not, we are actually trying to control nature and take over the driver’s seat.
Seeking but not finding
The level of egoism in humanity has kept growing, with each level driving us farther away from nature. The distance is not measured in inches or yards; it’s measured in qualities. Nature’s quality is wholeness, connectedness, and giving, but it is only possible to feel it when we share these qualities. If I am self-centered, there is no way I can connect to anything as whole and altruistic as nature. It would be like trying to see another person when we are standing back to back.
Because we are standing back to back with nature and because we still want to control it, clearly, the more we try, the more frustrated we become. Certainly, we cannot control something we can’t see or even feel. This desire can never be filled unless we make a U-turn, look in the opposite direction.
Moving to true health and happiness
Many people are already growing tired of technology’s broken promises of wealth, health, and most important, safe tomorrows. Too few people have attained all these today, and even if they did, they cannot be certain they will still have them tomorrow. But the benefit of this state is that it forces us to reexamine our direction and ask, “Is it possible we’ve been treading the wrong path all along?”
Particularly today, as we acknowledge the crisis and the impasse we are facing, we can openly admit that the path we’ve chosen is a dead-end street. Instead of compensating for our self-centered oppositeness from nature by choosing technology, we should have changed our egoism to altruism, and consequently to unity with nature.
To realize our oppositeness from nature means that we must acknowledge the split that occurred among us (human beings) five thousand years ago. This is called “the recognition of evil.” It is not easy, but it is the first step to true health and happiness.
