Question from the Internet:
“What is a societal shift we are in at the current moment that is changing the way we live but one we have no control over?”
Until now, human development has been a completely blind and instinctive affair. Everything we have ever done, invented or built was driven by our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic and exploitative egos. And as this human ego has been constantly growing and intensifying throughout history, the helplessly recurring vicious cycles have become shorter and more explosive.
And today, we are on the verge of a potential nuclear world war while our proud Western society is collapsing, taking everything else with it to the grave. And this is inevitable since our so-called “Western values”, reckless and exclusive individualism, excessive overconsumption and ruthless competition to succeed and prove ourselves at the expense of others — without any particular higher reason apart from controlling and exploiting others for our own sake and to be higher on the pecking order — is totally incompatible with Nature’s fundamental and unchanging laws that given life.
Thus as long as we remain under total control of our inherently selfish and individualistic egos, we have no control over what is happening to us. Seemingly our self-destruction is inevitable.
Fortunately, there is another option!
We can learn how to control and harness the ego’s irrepressible and awesome driving force towards positive, constrictive and collective goals and purpose. We can actually learn what our predetermined role and purpose are in Nature’s system according to evolution’s plan.
And as soon as we gain control over our egos — by methodically harnessing and using suitable forces and principles in Nature’s system that also power evolution — we gain control over our fate and future.
