It depends on us how we see, how we experience the changes in the world

Question from the Internet:

“Are the current changes in the world mostly negative or positive?”

They are negative from the point of view of our selfish egos, but they are positive from the viewpoint of the potential human observer budding in us.

Humanity’s blind, egoistic, subjective development has run its course, our totally self-serving, self-justifying, all-consuming and ruthlessly competitive system use collapsing regardless of the stubborn bailout, stimulus packages pledging virtual trillions of dollars for “recovery”.

Our unnatural human system is incompatible with Nature’s strict, unrelenting laws that sustain the balance and homeostasis life depends on, so the present human construct has no further right to exist.

This is very hard to accept for the selfish, exploitative ego that drove our development, existence so far.

On the other hand — in the lack off any other choice — the potential human being, human observer in us, that had been dormant, undetected so far, now has the ability to develop and become our next driving force in life.

We have a small spark in us that pulls is towards compatibility with Nature, to build a mutually integrated, mutually complementing human society that is compatible with Nature’s laws and integration.

So while the ego suffers and has nowhere to run, now we can purposefully, methodically develop that natural, truly Human spark, seed in us, that can lead us towards similarity with Nature, not “only” to safeguard collective Human survival, but to elevate our collective Human existence to a qualitatively much higher level.
