How Should I Know What Humanity Needs?

Humanity needs to know that there is a next level of complete unification to which nature advances us, and the fact that nature is connecting us against our will is the reason for all forms of suffering we endure. In other words, there are forces of nature that are connecting us more and more, and by rejecting the tendency to positively connect, we experience suffering, and on the contrary, if we act in unison with the forces that connect us, we will experience life blissfully.

That is why we require a whole new kind of education today, one that teaches us about the forces of nature that operate on us, and how we can equalize with those forces by realizing our connection positively. We can then rise peacefully to the next level of a harmoniously-connected life to which nature guides us.

We see that we have become a global humanity. There is nowhere to escape from our global interdependence and interconnection. Entering into unison with nature thus means that we should upgrade our attitudes to this tightening globally interdependent and interconnected state we find ourselves in—to realize that we are all in one boat, that we are all a single family around the world—and to start relating to each other accordingly. This is the message that nature wants us to hear, and if we remain as foolish children who wish to simply chase what seems sweet and good for each one of us individually, without considering our mutual influence and dependence, then what will nature do? It will punish us until we start listening to what it wishes to communicate to us. Our incongruence with nature’s connecting tendency is the reason for our suffering today, and it is the reason we will experience more and more suffering as we head into the future.

We should thus take heed to what nature has started showing us, that we are a single globally interdependent and interconnected humanity, and that if we wish to realize our interdependence harmoniously and peacefully, we need to invert our attitudes to each other so that they are all-inclusive like nature itself.

It is quite complicated since we are born and raised solely in our egoistic nature—self-benefit at the expense of others and nature—but if we set ourselves on a path of implementing a new connection-enriching learning throughout the world, then we will be able to undergo a positive transition, alleviating the need for all kinds of turmoil to befall us.
