Life depends on our proper connection to the human and natural environment!

Question from the Internet:

“How important is recognizing your connection to the environment to your life?”

By default we believe that we are independent, “standalone", individual beings with a high degree of freedom of choice and actions.

The development of globalization, this new sense of mutual integration and interdependence the pandemic made even sharper brought us closer to the truth.

The truth is that we are not independent, free at all, but we are all individual cells of a single, human “super-organism", which is also intimately integrated into Nature’s fully integrated system.

Recognizing this is crucial for our future, individual and collective survival, as our problem solving ability, continuing life directly depends on the conscious, positive, constructive mutual interconections with the human and natural environment that surrounds us.

This is why we urgently need a unique, purposeful and practical “integral education”, so we can all understand and tangibly feel what a global, integral world demands from us.
