It is written somewhere that in order to reach the light – first there must be darkness. That is what the world is currently experiencing. We are gradually discovering the full extent of our true nature, which is not so pleasant to look at. The universe is holding up a mirror to us, and though we would all like to think this has nothing to do with us – we are all made out of the same stuff. All these bad things will continue to escalate until we understand that we are actually the root of the problem. The following is a quick review of a week that we will remembered as quite gruesome compared to the joy the holiday season is sure to bring.

Protests throughout the US

First of all there are riots across the US these days and it is very sad to see America coming apart like this. I’m sure this is not what the forefathers had in mind when they came up with their vision of unity and equality. Why are we surprised to be completely surrounded by clashes of violence when there is so much aggression on TV, in movies, video games and advertisements? We created this environment, and we fully support it on a daily basis through what we decide to purchase. But the worst part is that we are exposing our children to these bad examples that make negative impressions on their pure souls, which we will never be able erase.

Los Angeles Fires

We are living in a stage where all of humanity is developing toward this closed system in which we are gradually discovering how interdependent we are. The universe wants us to discover this global connection we all share but we want to continue focusing on things that we have been led to believe will give us pleasure. The more we are running behind schedule according to nature’s plan, the more problems we can expect in our lives. Negligence, human error and indifference will abound and soon we won’t even be able to see things that are right in front of us. This is happening because we are out of sync with nature. Nature is moving us toward an integral form and we are resisting it, and actually becoming more and more individualistic. So the amount of human errors will continue to escalate.

Child Abuse

Every day we see parents locking up and abusing their children for years. Let us all agree that there is something seriously wrong with our society and start teaching people how to live correctly.

Celebrity Predators

Why do we idolize celebrities, and why are we so shocked to discover they’re human? Even worse humans in some cases. We need to understand that there are no perfect people, no good people or bad people. It’s all human nature and that’s what we are – selfish and ready to ignore everyone and exploit others to our own benefit. So until we transform our nature from egoism to altruism, we’ll continue to exploit other people as much as we can. These celebrities are simply a representation, a manifestation of our own internal image.

Brutal Torture

Why do we enjoy controlling and hurting our fellow man? Why do we get so much pleasure out of it? What kind of world are we living in where some people’s lives were shattered and terminated, while others got extremely rich from developing these sick methods?

Elections Won’t Change Anything

You know how they say after a woman gives birth nature somehow helps her forget all the pain so she will want to get pregnant again. The same goes for us and these elections. Why do we place so much hope in a new leadership when clearly the system is no longer working? Millions are homeless and unemployed in America, the greatest democracy on the planet. Here in Israel, it would be so easy to make some minor adjustments that would help the weaker parts of society. But we’ve created a society where the strong keep getting stronger and the weaker parts of society keep lowering their expectations.

Everyone hopes that a shift in leadership will change something but it won’t because we’re under the influence of the general program of creation. In order to advance correctly we must first learn how nature advances correctly and then join on that path. Until we learn nature’s way and how we can be a harmonious part of it, we will never be happy.

Despite all of the above, I hope we will put this lowest point of our humanity behind us forever and agree that a slight shift in our attitude can generate great ripples of goodness across the world.
