Waking up from a dystopian nightmare

Question from the Internet:

Are we living in a dystopian nightmare?

It sure looks like this — until we start to learn and understand the cause and consequence processes determining our lives and the world around us.

Humanity entered terrible chaos, we are seemingly, inevitably sleepwalking towards a global disaster on multiple fronts. Such a meltdown could be triggered through myriads of different causes in any location worldwide at any moment.

But if we rise above the actual events and acquire a more systematic “birdseye view” of evolution, human history, then we can start to see that this present chaos is actually the birth of a completely new, qualitatively much higher human development.

Until now, we have been developing, progressing blindly, driven by our instinctive, inherently selfish, egotistic, exploitative nature, wanting to use, exploit, change, replace and destroy everything for selfish fulfillment like children not seeing the consequences of their actions.

The imminent self-destruction we are facing is a wake-up call, showing to more and more people the need for unprecedented, fundamental changes in order to survive.

What we still need to accept, understand is that we cannot achieve anything by changing others we consider ‘evil”, or wrong, we cannot achieve anything through political, economic, social changes, or wars. Since the problem, all the problems, are rooted in our inherent nature, only by changing ourselves — each person focusing on this unique self-change, self-upgrade — can we solve problems and save ourselves.

Thus in our generation a completely new, this conscious human development starts, when we consciously, purposefully, and methodically start changing, upgrading ourselves in order to adapt to, become compatible with Nature’s laws of integration and the flow of evolution.

A mutually, proactively integrated humanity — above and against our inherent nature — can become a positive, integrated part of Nature. Moreover, we gain by this a completely unparalleled, integrated but still independent observer status, partnership with Nature, understanding, benevolently governing the system from within.
