Humanity’s global unity— either through suffering or through wisdom

Question from the Internet:

“In your opinion, what would it take for all of the countries of the world to unite? Is it possible?”

Global, international unity is possible, moreover, it is guaranteed to happen. It will unfold through one of two different ways and our free choice relates to which way this global human unity will unfold.

One option is the “path of suffering” and for that, we have to do nothing, We can just continue blindly following our inherently selfish, egoistic, individualistic, nationalistic, and exploitative nature. Then the helplessly recurring, vicious historic cycles, the worsening socio-economic crisis, climate change, plagues, wars, and the finally intolerable global suffering will unite us.

The other option is the “wise path”, when we, first of all, realize and accept that the only root cause of all our problems is the above-mentioned inherent human nature. Then with the help of a unique, purposeful, and practical educational method we willingly, proactively learn how to build positive, constructive, sustainable, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing unity, cooperation in order to survive.

Our “survival instinct” will inevitably kick in, but we can avoid the unnecessary suffering, destruction if we start changing ourselves and how we relate to each other always a step ahead of the otherwise inevitable blows.
