For peace and harmony, we have to change ourselves first!

Question from the Internet:

“In your opinion, is life moving towards peace, and are humans moving towards harmony and harmony over time and with technological progress in the means of communication and the circulation of information?”

No. At the moment, life is moving toward war; humans are moving toward mutual hate and disharmony, and technology is used only to control, manipulate, exploit, and destroy others.

This will continue as long as we blindly and instinctively follow our inherently selfish, egocentric, individualistic, and exploitative nature.

It will be on the brink of almost certain self-destruction, just before or already during a nuclear war or incredible natural disasters taking millions of lives, that we will finally awaken and understand that we have to change.

The handful of survivors will recognize as a result of intolerable suffering that only by willingly and purposefully changing our own nature — instead of blaming, correcting, censoring, or destroying others — can we build a better, nature-like, mutually integrated, and mutually complementing human society.

Only when we overcome our inherently exploitative, hateful, and warmongering nature and our inclination to survive and succeed at each other’s expense can we move forward toward peace and harmony and use our technology for positive and constructive goals and purposes that are beneficial for all.

On the other hand, we still have time and the chance to start changing ourselves and the flow of events without such calamities. If at least a so-called critical minority of people started to consciously and purposefully learn and practice how to build nature-like, mutually beneficial, and mutually complementing integration between them, with their positive example, they could pull and guide humanity towards safety and a qualitatively much higher, collective Human existence.
