The era of conscious globalization
Question from the Internet:
“Are we in the post-globalization era?”
We can’t speak about a “post-globalization” era, since “globalization” — existence in a globally integrated and fully interdependent world — is a natural, evolutionary process which happens regardless of what we do.
The fully integrated, finely balanced natural system forces the global interconnections and total interdependence on us and we cannot ignore or escape it whatever we do. On the other hand, we can learn and change how we relate to “globalization” and how we use our inevitable, global, mutual integration.
So it is not “globalization” that changes, but our own attitude to it and how we adapt ourselves to Nature’s global system.
So far, driven by our inherent nature, we have been using “globalization” the same way we use everything, for our own, selfish, subjective and individualistic sake, at the expense of others. This is what our instinctively self-serving, self-justifying and exploitative inner program dictate.
As a result we exist, behave and act in Nature’s integral system like cancer. This is the reason behind all our crisis situation and our seemingly inevitable march towards mutually assured self-destruction.
This is why we urgently need a unique, purposeful and highly practical integral education, to help us adapt ourselves to Nature’s global, integral system, to achieve the necessary compatibility with the system that can guarantee and safeguard our continuing, collective human survival.
