Imagine for a few minutes that we are on a special train, the train of human evolution. The train comes to the next stop and stops at the pier. When we get off the train, we see a sign with the inscription: "Welcome to the integral world!".
This evolutionary change will occur independently of our will. It is already happening. The only question is whether we will adjust to this without new shocks that will make us painfully aware that we are all in the same boat.
At first nothing seems suspicious, everything looks like the world we know. But as we head into the new world , we start bumping into things, and the bumps get more and more painful. As it turned out, the integral world can be similar to ours, although it is governed by completely different laws.
The world is changing very quickly. The forces acting on us make us move to another level of consciousness. It is required that we begin to understand the governing laws of nature, to look at the world in which we live from a higher point of view, more broadly and globally than our narrow vision has hitherto allowed.
For millennia, civilization has developed with an individualistic mindset. Each of us was driven by selfish impulses that continued to grow. But now these desires have driven us to a dead end.
Today's young people feel lost, disoriented, unsure of what to do with their lives and what they want from life. They feel like failures in a world that we have built according to our own plan and which is alien to them.
For thousands of years, the ego has been king. People worked, did business and earned money. Now they are suddenly trapped in a global network with countless elements that they cannot control and do not understand.
Any crisis or war affects all of humanity. The butterfly effect has evolved from theory to our everyday reality. In such an integrated world where everything is interconnected and interdependent, we have no choice but to consider each other's needs. Gradually, bumping into more and more obstacles, we understand that if we do not think about everyone, no one will succeed.
The problem is that a person is not born this way. He doesn't think genuine caring is possible at all.
The transition to a new attitude towards all people is the next great challenge for humanity. Everyone will have to start by not doing to others what he would not like to be done to him. Until, finally, people come to a state where they really love each other, no matter how fantastic it may sound today.
This evolutionary change will occur independently of our will. It's already happening. The only question is whether we will adjust to this without new shocks that will make us painfully aware that we are all in the same boat.
Now is the time to open your eyes and learn to feel the connection. It is time to teach ourselves a new paradigm of thinking - one that includes others, because the benefit of all is also the benefit of everyone.
Excellent article! The train is rushing, and its speed depends on us!
You must not oversleep your half-station!
How I want to arrive in this life where everyone's heart, as in childhood, will be filled with love. Thanks to the author.
"Self-love makes people hostile to each other."
— David Hume (1711-1776) wrote [13, p.701]. economist, historian, publicist, one of the leading figures of the Scottish Enlightenment. Edinburgh University.
“Indeed, the ethics of egoism initially contains a conflict of interests, and the conflict also passes into the personal quality of the egoist himself. There are, however, very sensitive factors for others that generate their discontent. Most importantly, egoists usually directly or indirectly block the achievement of competitors' goals or reduce their effectiveness. Egoists do not consider the feelings of other people, do not recognize their merits and merits, except, of course, when it is beneficial to them.
THE QUESTION: DO WE NEED IT?
