Humanity’s biggest failure is the inability to connect — and it is now threatening our existence

Question from the Internet:

“What is the biggest failure in modern society?”

Our biggest failure is our utter inability to rise above our self-serving, self-justifying reflexes, above the instinctive distrust, animosity towards others.

As a result we are unable to build sustainable, positive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing connections, cooperation with each other.

And without such connections, cooperation we cannot solve the mounting, global problems that threaten our development, existence. And in Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent system our collective Human survival is in danger as long as we remain separated, fragmented, infighting.

The whole course of the pandemic, the lack of communication, the complete lack of true and effective cooperation, leadership, the constant tendency to try succeeding, surviving at each other’s expense proves this very sharply.

This is why we urgently need a special, purposeful and practical educational method that can help us rise above, act against our egoistic reflexes, building connections above separation, covering “hate with love".

Then within the ensuing contrast we acquire a qualitatively much higher, collective consciousness, perception of reality that is able to open up, again total reality as it is.
