We need to learn how to communicate, solve problems above our instinctive nature

Question from the Internet:

“What’s wrong with our conversations about the climate crisis?”

It is the same problem that plagues all other conversations, preventing us to reach true solutions.
We are all driven by an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and subjective nature that operates our worldview and perception of reality.

Thus even if we truly wanted to find a solution for our mounting global problems — and we don’t, as it would require to charge our behaviour, lifestyle — we couldn’t as long as we are all trapped into our own egocentric, subjective bubbles.

Thus the only true solution for our communication problems and for the growing, multi-faceted crisis that threatens our existence is consciously, methodically learning how to liberate ourselves from our original selfish, egotistic, introverted cocoons and start acting, thinking, feeling, perceiving through the desires, thoughts and viewpoints of others.

This is not a utopia but a tangible, realistic state we can achieve with the help of the truth education. And frankly, we don’t have any other choice, chance for continuing survival in Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent system!
