Covid-19: The Next Big Thing in business after the pandemic

The Next Big Thing in business will a complete rebuild after the present socio-economic system will totally collapse. It won’t be the result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the virus only provided the last, merciful stab into the heart, or switching off the life support the old excessive, overproduction, overconsumption “business model” has been on for decades.

This is going to be a great relief for everybody. We could see that most countries were almost too eager to bring about the restrictions, giving the last rites to the old system even before the virus put the pistol to our heads.

Everybody — from the 1% elite to the simple people — will feel (actually we are already feeling it through the “forced rehab” we are in right now) as if escaping from a very long abusive relationship. After all the old system made us depressed, empty, reliant on brainless entertainment and constant substance abuse to get going regardless of how many zeros we had on the bank account or where we stood on the Forbes list.

For the first time in history, we were not looking ahead to the future but feared it and we did not think our children will have a better life than us.

Thus Covid-19 apart from mercifully finishing off the old system also gave us time to think about our lives, the meaning, the goals we follow, providing a truly free choice for the first time in our history to actually choose in which direction we want to continue.

First of all, we need to understand that we do not have a choice about our destination, as Nature’s lawful, deterministic evolutionary plan very clearly defines that the optimal state the whole is running towards to is the full, seamless integration of the whole Natural system, together with a Humanity that is also integrated into the system through people and nations integrating with each other. Thus our free choice is not about this.

Our free choice is about in what way we reach that optimal state evolution expects from us. We can try returning to the old system as the already mentioned stimulus packages indicate. This way we will continue to go against the evolutionary plan, drawing on ourselves increasing, worse crisis situations until intolerable suffering will force us to think again until we change.

Or we can already, consciously, willingly can start the necessary changes towards our mutual integration. We can do so through a unique, global and integral educational method that can explain to us why and how e can achieve the mutual integration in Humanity and through that the integration into Nature’s system above and against our inherently egoistic, selfish and subjective program.

By this integration, we do not become just another cogwheel in the system. Since we have to integrate consciously against and above our egos, we will retain full awareness of who we are, where we are. Thus we will acquire a completely unprecedented “insider” observer view of Nature’s system seeing, attaining all the cause and effect processes, the complete developmental plan with our own role in it.

We will become the only conscious, mindful element in Nature, with that justifying our Human purpose in the system.
