From physical to virtual until we find the intention…

Learning to connect virtually

I think one lesson we learned through the quarantine is that our social interaction is not dependant on our physical connections.

Of course, there are things we cannot do virtually. But many learned that we can work, teach, learn virtually — and probably many will continue working, teaching, learning virtually without the physical overheads added problems with travel, etc.

Many learned that we can build strong, many times deeper Human connections without the limitations of physicality, above time and space all across the world virtually.

Many learned to spend hours with faraway family members, to celebrate holidays together, to play board games, card games together regardless of time-zones, borders, restrictions.

Virtual connections — which we were forced to explore and use much more and deeper than ever before — add a new dimension to our physical connections even if we can start connecting physically as before — though for a while it will remain uncertain, fragile, especially if physicality depends on long-distance travel.

Transitioning towards global connections

And while it was a virus that seemingly forced us into the virtual domain, it is actually an evolutionary necessity. The other thing the virus showed in an unquestionable manner is that we are locked into a single, fully integrated, global system above borders, nationalities, and everything else that usually separates us.

And comprehending, implementing such global integration, connections, cooperation is impossible in a physical manner. Thus transferring some or even most of our interactions to the virtual plane is a must, a given.

Of course, it is still only half-way towards an even deeper type of connection we will need to learn to make our global integration and mutually responsible, mutually complementing cooperation most effective.

Accessing true control through intentions

But that transition will already require a unique, purposeful, and practical educational method, where we can learn — in a realistic, tangible, scientific manner — how to focus on the intentions accompanying our physical, virtual actions and to try living, connecting through the intentions, which determine how our actions unfold and influence the fully integrated system. Before accessing, using the “intention level” of our actions we remain on a completely predetermined, superficial layer, controlled by our blind instincts, hormonal reactions.

Only through the consciously scrutinized and directed intentions will we actually become able to consciously, actively control our actions and our all-important influence on the global, integral network we all live in. It will be like finally going behind the scenes, finding the control level of reality, becoming the director, scriptwriter instead of living like hapless, passive supporting actors.

This is how we will gradually learn to let go of our inherent obsession with the superficial, physical actions, connections until — first through virtual connections — we can fully transition into a non-physical sense, perception of reality, completely above the limitations of time, space and motion.
