Individuals in a global, integrated society
Question from the Internet:
“How can we balance personal freedom with social responsibilities in a crisis like Covid-19?”
Only through the right education.
If we gradually understand and actually feel how Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system work — and also accept that humanity is one of those integrated, interdependent living systems — then we also gradually understand that we have no personal freedom as we imagine, we only have absolute, mutual responsibility.
Now, this is a difficult and gradual process, since we instinctively feel ourselves as standalone, egocentric, subjective, and individualistic beings, and our education, social influence strengthen this illusory belief even more.
This is why we need a unique, purposeful, and highly practical educational method that can help us understand and “viscerally” feel our total interdependence and what we gain by accepting our existence as individual cells of the same, closed, integral organism, and what we lose if we do not accept it.
This education can help us pull ourselves forward towards our truthful, positively, mutually integrated state, while the increasing suffering, impending self-destruction — due to our egocentric, individualistic, ruthlessly competitive existence — will provide the negative urge, “motivation”.
