Human survival requires an upgrade in our perception of reality

Question from the Internet:

“If perception is an illusion or does not exist, how or why would it matter?”

Our perception is inherently egocentric, subjective, thus the reality we feel ourselves in is an illusion, it is limited and distorted by how we look at it.

It matters because as a result we react to reality in a misguided, faulty way and as a result we cause harm to everything, everybody around us and to ourselves.

Our egocentric, subjective illusion tells us that we are independent, standalone creatures that can do whatever we want. It also tells us that we need to ruthlessly compete, fight with everybody and everything for survival, resources as we can’t trust ability since they are all “out to get us”, trick us, exploit us.

As a result even now - in the pandemic, facing ever increasing climate change problems and a worsening, unsolvable global crisis - we can’t build the crucially necessary, mutually responsible, mutually complementing connections, cooperation, without which we can’t solve problems and survive.
This is how the world looks from our egocentric, subjective viewpoint right now.

At the same time - on the other side of the coin - from Nature’s systemic point of view, we are all integrated, mutually interdependent parts of Humanity and Nature’s system. We are all individual cells of a single, living body through Humanity as one of the species, organ of that body.

As a result of our egocentric, subjective illusion we try to survive as single-cell organisms, against the other parts of the body, behaving like cancer. This is why Humanity is marching towards self-destruction while we endanger the planet which gives us live.

This is why we need a unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method, that can help us to wake up from this dangerous illusion, to come to our senses through a corrected, upgraded perception of reality. We need to come to sense the real, tangible, inevitable interconnections between us that are impossible to sever, lose, undo.

Through the right method we will be able to build an unprecedented mutual trust, feeling of unity wish will serve as foundation for the mutual guarantee without which we won’t be able to survive in Nature’s integral system.
