The biggest challenge in 2020
The biggest challenge we are all facing in 2020 is understanding our situation, why we are sinking into an unprecedented global crisis where everything spirals out of control, what caused this to happen and how we could stop the process before it is too late.
Although still many people — especially the “leaders and experts” — deny that we have lost control and most people still hope to return to “normality” after the pandemic is over, in truth we are going through an unprecedented “revolution” in Human development.
We entered the so-called “last generation” when we start a completely new, this time conscious phase of Human history. History so far has been a completely blind, instinctive affair. Our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic nature — that drives us towards ruthless competition, success, and survival at the expense of others and excessive overconsumption — built and destroyed civilizations in helplessly recurring vicious cycles.
This time we can learn how to think, make decisions and act above and against our instinctive program, to make calculations for the sake of the whole collective (which in our times means the whole global world) in order to adapt ourselves to Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system according to the plan of evolution.
This “revolution” is an evolutionary necessity, without it Nature will keep pressuring us as right now — as through Human development so far — we have been completely incompatible with Nature’s laws that sustain the balance and homeostasis life depends on. And in our generation, this incompatibility has crossed the tolerable limit.
So we have no free choice about changing, adapting ourselves to Nature’s system. But we can choose the manner of the change. If we are wise we choose the conscious, proactive approach, methodically changing, upgrading ourselves before we receive ever-increasing blows, intolerable suffering from Nature.
We arrived at the first truly free choice in our history. We will need to choose wisely!
