Becoming the change we want to see in the world

Question from the Internet:

“How can you become the change you want to see in the world today?”

Your question is very important, as indeed, we can change the world only by changing ourselves.

In order to know how to change, how to become the change, we need to understand what it means to exist in a fully integrated, interdependent world.

We evolved into such a global, integral system as a result of Nature’s evolution driving the whole natural system towards a final, most optimal integration. Humanity as an integral part, as one of the species — although a very unique, unparalleled one — in Nature has to follow the same path.

This means that we all have to become like healthy, mutually responsible, mutually complementing cells in Humanity’s single “body", which is also fully integrated into Nature.

And since we have to do this above, against our inherently self-serving, egocentric, subjective and individualistic nature, we need a very unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method, so we can follow evolution’s lead consciously, willingly, without waiting for increasing pressure, intolerable suffering to force us.
