How can “spirituality” create a peaceful and harmonious world?

Question from the Internet:

“In what ways do you think spirituality can contribute to creating a more peaceful and harmonious world, and what actions can we take to promote this vision?”

In order to create a more peaceful and harmonious world, we have to learn how to exist for each other instead of instinctively existing only for ourselves.

By default, we are born with a nature and inner program that creates a 100% egocentric, subjective, and individualistic worldview and a resulting 100% self-serving and self-justifying lifestyle where we survive and succeed at each other’s expense.

The Wisdom of Kabbalah — a unique, empirical natural science that has been researching human nature in contrast to nature’s harmonious system — describes this original worldview and existence as “corporeality” or “materiality.”

This does not actually mean our “flesh and bone” biological body or material, but our original “matter,” our insatiable desire to receive everything possible only for ourselves.

In contrast to this, Kabbalah describes “spirituality” as a state when we become capable of living “outside of our body” or “material,” meaning outside and above our original self-serving and self-justifying desires and intentions.

A “spiritual person” is one that already has the ability and intention to exist and act only for the sake of others, in a completely selfless and unconditional way, “dissolving” into the desires and viewpoints of others with the single intention to constantly, and as perfectly as possible” fulfill those desires of others — above and against the original egocentric, subjective and individualistic calculations and actions.

This “spirituality” does lead to a more peaceful and harmonious world when at least a crucially important “critical minority” willingly and purposefully learns and practices the above state of existence and behavior in a mutually responsible and mutually complementing way.

Then these pioneers will be able to pull the rest of humanity behind them, especially as the rest of humanity will be gradually softened and prepared by the worsening crisis situations and blows in general human society.

This way, with the help of that unique, ‘spiritual” minority humanity will be able to avoid and prevent truly devastating blows and suffering and accommodate themselves to the “spiritual” way of existence a step ahead of the truly great blows and intolerable suffering.
