Can we justify the terrible manner people treat each other?

Question from the Internet:

“In this world, we are here to let down each other. Can anyone justify this?”

You are right. By default, in this world, we are letting each other down; we try to control, manipulate, exploit and destroy each other. And as we speak, we seemingly march towards inevitable self-destruction as a result.

Can we justify this?

We can justify this only when we understand the whole process of evolution and Nature’s “reason and purpose” for creating human beings with an inherently selfish, egoistic, and individualistic nature.

Suppose we study and gradually understand the complete system. In that case, we exist in, and what our very high and unique purpose and role in this system are, then we will be able to justify the destructive human ego that has been driving human evolution up to this point.

When we already recognized this ego in us behind everything we think and do and already started willingly, consciously, and purposefully practicing how to harness and channel the incredible driving force of the ego toward positive, constructive and mutually beneficial, and collective goals for the sake and well-being of the whole system, then we will justify why we had to be born opposite to Nature’s perfectly harmonious system.

Then we will not only understand, but we will undoubtedly feel how, in the contrast of our inherent nature and the acquired similarity with Nature, we can attain and sense the whole reality, detecting and understanding all the cause and effect processes that create and nurture life.

We will feel and justify how a perfect and objective perception of total reality is possible only in the stark, infinite contrast between hate and love, between rejection and attraction, and between death and life.

Then we will be able to justify even the most terrible and cruel events and states in life since, opposite to them, we reveal the infinite love and perfection that permeates the system!

By then, we will experience a very different and total sense of existence, way above the egocentric and subjective limitations of time and space or physical life or death. We will look back at everything we have ever gone through as a game or preparation for our truly Human existence in partnership with Nature’s evolution.
