There is no life without crisis

Question from the Internet:

Will the world ever live without a crisis?

We can’t live without crisis, tension, without revealing problems, disputes, imperfections. A constant, still, tranquil state is death. Life is about detecting, neutralizing, correcting deviations from an overall balance, homeostasis.

What we can change is learning how to consciously successfully handle, solve, neutralize the constantly appearing crisis situations — most of them we are not even aware of.

And this can happen only if we understand that we exist in a fully integrated and interdependent Natural system, where we each constitute a single cell. In such a system in order to detect and handle crisis situations successfully, effectively we need a systemic viewpoint above our inherently “single-cell”, subjective and egocentric viewpoint.

We can purposefully, methodically develop, build an unprecedented collective Human consciousness, intellect that we can all access and sense, feel, understand life, our existence independent of our originally very limited and distorted subjective, self-serving, and self-justifying perception.

Then we will welcome, cherish each new breakage, crisis situation as another opportunity to understand the system we exist in and delve deeper into live, true, Natural consciousness by handling, solving that crisis.

As long as we remain on our inherently disconnected, subjective, individualistic single-cell level we are completely blind, we are instinctively thrown this way and that way by every new change, crisis situation and we have no idea what to do with them — as our world is showcasing this in our days very sharply.
