This time we have to go through a very different — inner — revolution!

Question from the Internet:

“Does it always take a revolution to change the world?”

Usually yes, and the more dramatic that revolution is the greater and more sustainable the changes are.

We are “creatures of comfort” we change, move out of the comfort zone only when either intolerable suffering or much greater, much more attractive pleasures draw us that make it worthwhile to leave the comfort zone. Both instances are based on pain, an unpleasant sensation in the actual state either from direct suffering or from now having what we truly want.

But a revolution does not need to mean the usual destruction, wars, revenging someone to make us feel better, higher.

The true revolution we are going to go through very soon is very different from all previous revolutions. This revolution will unfold inside of ourselves as we come to hate our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egotistic,m hateful, and exploitative nature so much — recognizing it behind all the problems humanity ever suffered and still suffers — that we become ready to fundamentally change ourselves, change how we relate to each other and reality in general.

This self-changing, the self-upgrading revolution will elevate us to a completely different, qualitatively much higher, collective, natural existence. If we won’t be successful with this inner revolution then we will continue history’s blind, instinctive recurring vicious cycles with the usual, destructive, external revolutions.
