On the brink of an evolutionary change in humanity

Question from the Internet:

“What are some ways you can contribute to your community and make a difference in the lives of others?”

What we need to see and understand for the answer is that we have truly become a globally integrated and totally interdependent human system. Or we can say, that we have all become like single cells in a single, mutually integrated living organism.

Our inherently egocentric, subjective, and individualistic worldview and perception of reality still protest this, but when we look at life’s events, and what is going on around the world, we see proof of this total “intermingling” day-to-day, stronger and stronger.

And it is not only the human system that is fully integrated. Humanity is only one of the species of nature — albeit the most important one — thus we are also integral parts of nature, and whatever we do or not do has a direct and mostly negative effect on the natural environment.

So, if we truly want to contribute to our community, if we truly want to make a positive difference in the lives of others, we will need to learn and actually feel what it means to exist as a single and healthy cell in humanity’s body and through humanity in the system of nature.

This is why we need a unique method, that can provide intellectual knowledge but at the same time can also give us tangible and “visceral” sensations and emotional impressions about our inevitable and irrevocable interdependence.

Through this method and especially through the feelings and emotional impressions we gain, we can undoubtedly feel and attain what we gain by becoming mutually integrated and co-existing instead of constantly fighting and succeeding at each other’s expense. We can also see and even feel what we lose if we want to remain in our inherently self-serving and self-justifying paradigm.

Today we exist in an age when these things have become absolutely sharp and touchable on a daily basis as nature’s laws and evolution’s relentless flow demand from us the unique inner change from single-cell organisms to a qualitatively much higher “multi-cellular” humanity.
