Blame starts with free choice

I am usually, instinctively angry with the world.

Especially when I look at how we waste, corrupt everything, and keep falling into the same traps, committing the same mistakes again and again, digging ourselves ever deeper into crisis, sleepwalking towards self-destruction.

But when I can chill out a bit I can remind myself that there is no point being angry.

Anger, blame applies only in cases when people are acting out of free choice, when they could choose to act otherwise.

And up to this point we had no free choice at all!

Human history has been a completely blind, instinctive process, everybody individually, collectively following our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and individualistic nature, program. This program drives us to try succeeding, surviving at each other’s expense, exploiting everything and everyone for excessive, selfish benefit.

True free choice, thus blame and anger applies only from our own generation.

Only now did we finally recognize and accept that all of our problems originate from our inherently selfish egos that prevent any true, positive, long term connections, cooperations between individuals and nations.

This has become sharp and unmistakable only in our present, globally integrated and fully interdependent evolutionary conditions.

Even that wouldn’t be enough if we had no option to change ourselves, upgrading our original “program”, inclination, intentions.

Fortunately we have a very unique, purposeful and practical educational method which is “designed” especially for this reason. So those who find access to this method - that is freely open for all - and agreed to take part in it are those who acquired a free choice about their life, fate, that wasn’t available for anybody before.

These people by building a purposeful environment based on the above method can implement their free choice.

These people, unique pioneers - apart from enjoying such a free choice - also take a huge responsibility on their shoulders, as they by default become responsible for all the others who are still trapped inside their inherent nature, program, blindly existing without any choice, without even knowing about it!
