Any change in the world has to start with changing ourselves

Question from the Internet:

“You really cannot change the system, but you can still influence the system by doing what is right and just. What does it mean?”

We can consider our present Human society as a fully controlled, manipulated Matrix built by the inherently self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative ego that drives all of us.

We all consent to this Matrix as long as we benefit from it, and when we don’t benefit we complain, but all our “solutions”, all the “different" ideologies, structures we ever tried through history, or we try today in order to “change the world" are also driven, designed by the same ego.

So we don’t actually leave, change the Matrix, we just make illusory charges while the main direction - selfish exploitation of everything and everybody, success at the expense of others and overconsumption - remains. At this stage we don’t know what is right or just.

If we truly want to change the system, first we need to disconnect from serving our own selfish, subjective egos through a unique, purposeful and practical educational method.

Then we will also become capable to gradually disconnect, pull others also out of the Matrix - when they already want it, have a true desire for it, as nothing can work through coercion or misleading propaganda.

Only when people truly want to change, fully understanding the benefit of such change, can they receive help.
