What does our future depend on?

Question from the Internet:

“How does our future depend on what we do today?”

Our future depends on recognizing today, that whatever we have done so far was 100%, blindly driven, controlled by our inherently selfish, exploitative egos.

All the helplessly recurring vicious historic cycles and the perpetual crisis situations we ourselves are stumbling through are caused by this ego in all of us.

Thus we cannot change, improve the future by using the same, already failed, futile solutions which are all based on changing, blaming, defeating and destroying others, or on manipulating the world around us.

If we want to build a different, better, safer, more peaceful and sustainable collective future, we all have to start by changing, educating, upgrading ourselves.

Only when we learn how to build positive, sustainable, mutually responsible and mutually complementing interconnections and cooperation — above and against our inherent egos — then we will have a good future, for all of us.

This is what Nature’s integral system and its strict, unchanging and unforgiving laws determine, obligate.
