The truly uncomfortable and life-changing truth nobody wants to talk about

Question from the Internet:

“What are some life-changing truths that no one talks about?”

The most important life-changing truth nobody is talking about is that while we remain separated, selfish, and mutually competitive individuals, we remain like separated and thus dying cells of the same living body.

Driven by our 100% self-serving, self-justifying and exploitative instincts, we fight for individual freedom and individual rights, and we constantly try to survive and succeed at each other’s and Nature’s expense.

This is the root cause behind all of humanity’s historical and contemporary problems, and this is why we are desperately helpless in comprehending or solving the mounting global problems that started to threaten our existence.

An individualistic, narcissistic and hedonistic humanity — especially what Western society represents — has simply no right to exist in nature’s selflessly and unconditionally mutually integrated system where life is created and sustained by the perfectly harmonized interconnections and cooperation between the comprising elements.

This truth is very uncomfortable, even disgusting for our egos, but if we want to continue our collective human survival, we will have no other choice but to swallow the bitter truth and start adapting ourselves to Nature’s laws by building a Nature-like mutual integration between us on a global level.
