What can we be grateful for in such a great crisis?!

We are “simple creatures”, our “personal computer” is making constant calculations based on a selfish “pleasure/pain principle”. Our actual matter is the desire for fullfilment pleasures.

When we are fulfilled we are happy and grateful, when we remain empty, unfulfilled, we are unhappy, discontent.

We can of course pretend, and say that we are grateful while we are suffering, and cursing inside, but that is false. We can’t cheat our desires.

So how to be grateful in a time like this?!

We can be grateful if we understand, know for certain that the crisis situations, uncertainty, turmoil we go through now is purposeful, that it is part of a greater, Natural developmental plan.

Then we could understand, know that what we are going through now are birthing pains, contractions and when it is over we will find ourselves in a better state - provided we actually know what and why we are going through this, and we prepare ourselves for that next state.

So those who study and at least partially already attained the deterministic, lawful plan of evolution in Nature’s integral system - through a unique, purposeful and practical educational method - are truly grateful.

They know for certain that we had to go through this crisis, leaving the previous blind, instinctive development- causing self-destruction - behind, they know that the unsustainable socio-economic system causing human suffering and harm to Nature’s system had to collapse.

They know that this crisis is like a purification so when the “baby” - new Humanity - is born, we will be wiped clean by Nature’s system, given the chance to start a new life, this time consciously, according to Nature’s perfect integral template, according to integration within Humanity and living by natural necessities and available resources.

This heralds a qualitatively much higher, collective Human existence in partnership with Nature’s system, with free access to everything Nature’s infinite treasure chest has to offer.
This is what we should be grateful for.
