What do we need to feel in order to stop the wars?

Question from the Internet:

“Why can’t people see that they are a small dot in the universe and be one country and stop wars?”

I think that the notion, thought of being a small dot in the Universe usually overwhelms people, make them uncomfortable and they rather fend off such thoughts.

But we can learn, actually start to feel, that we are all but individual cells of a single, living organism — in the globally, mutually integrated, interdependent world Nature forces on us.

When we start to understand and actually, viscerally feel — with the help of a unique purposeful method — that we all belong to the same living “body”, that my true “self” includes everybody else all across the world, then we will also understand and feel that when I take what is others’, when I hurt, kill others I harm myself, this is when the ruthless, exclusive competition and the wars will stop.

Only when we make this as realistic and tangible as it can be can we reach true changes and sustainable results.
