Talks on Socioeconomic Development--PROUT
Neohumanism is a new form or expanded concept of humanism. It is composed of several key concepts which make it unique. In neohumanism, all living beings are viewed as manifestations of one integral whole. They are seen as aspects of one magnificent expression of Consciousness, interlinked and interconnected. None are unimportant or insignificant in this tapestry of life.
Therefore the welfare of all creatures must be taken into consideration. No living being should be mistreated or exploited. All living creatures exist together in an interwoven network of life. Each has its place in this network and its sphere of expression. In Neohumanism the Dharma, or realm of expression of all living beings, not merely human beings, is considered to be of value. Thus the welfare of all becomes the responsibility of neohumanists.
In this new form of humanism, maintenance of the balance of life and the welfare of living beings is of utmost importance. Human beings, like all creatures, must also be given scope for the realization of their potentials. None should be oppressed or diminished. For a neohumanist, the welfare of all beings is the cornerstone of actions in the world. All living beings are treated with respect and afforded dignity.
The actions of a neohumanist will serve to foster the well-being and dignity of all creatures great and small. Thus, a neohumanist is one who manifests this reverence for all life, and works to see that all living beings are given scope to realize their full potential and fulfill their innate dharma or purpose.
The foundation of neohumanism is the concept that all life is precious and all beings are important in the web of life.
Underlying Unity of Humanity
Different people around the world have many different types of experiences. There are many different types of cultures but there are many things in common such as warm days and the response of human beings to warm days, the response of human beings to cold, to sunlight, to darkness. Many things are similar in the human condition around the world in different cultures. Even one might say should human beings not be of this particular planetary body, still you may find many similarities. Although there are differences among human beings from different diverse backgrounds, still you will find that the degree of commonality in the human experience is more than the degree of difference. Then it becomes a matter of preference should a human being wish to emphasize the differences with others or the commonalities. In the emphasis upon differences between peoples, there are two impacts. One is that there is the development of a certain security of belonging to a known and quantified group of people, a family, a clan, a kingdom, a country. There is the identity with this quantifiable group and it gives a certain personal identity. One may think, "My group is like this or that and therefore I am like that" and one knows one's place in the world. It has this appeal to the human psychology. There is a great disadvantage to this identification with limited grouping, whether it be family, clan, ethnic group, racial group, or nationality or whatever the grouping. Perhaps there is identity with class, "I am the upper crust" or "I am impoverished." Whatever these different identifications with groupings, there is one failing in this approach. One begins to see more and more the differences between one's self and those in one's group and others and in this a barrier arises, a barrier based on heightened awareness of differences, rather than upon the commonalities within human experience.
When the babe is born and comes into the world and is first held in the mother's arms, is it so different from one country to the next, from one race to the next, from one people to the next? Is it not the same experience? When the old one lies in their bed and prepares to leave this world in the last hours if they are in one part of the world, of one race or another, is there so much difference in the human experience? I believe there is far more similarity than difference. Due to identification with the differences between people and with group of people with certain characteristics, certain ideologies, certain understandings, certain similarities, there is a heightened awareness of difference. From this substantiation of difference come schisms between human beings, between groups of human beings. When there are schisms, then there are conflicts between one and the other and out of these conflicts arises war. What is the fundamental cause of this terrible human phenomenon of war? It is a heightened emphasis upon the differences between people rather than the unity between people. It is from this approach that all the cruelties and abuses occur in the larger social field arise. As one begins to think that "I" and "mine" are something separate from "them," one feels justified doing some nasty action to them. Then if they, in turn, do some hurtful things to you or your family, clan or society then you feel justified taking mean action to them. Like this, the walls between people grow very high and last for generations, acculturating bitterness, anger, resentment, and pain into the human experience, into the society. For thousands of years one group living right next to another group may hate each other and do mean acts from time to time to each other, attempting to crush the other, all based on old wounds, "Oh, my grandfather and my grandfather's grandfather, this and that happened to them from these mean people." These bitternesses are perpetuated generation upon generation. They can go on for thousands of years but their cause remains the same. Even if they have existed for five thousand years, if one traces back, the cause is the same. It is identification with differences rather than similarities of human experience. From these have come so much bitterness, so much pain, so much strife, and so much cruelty in the human condition.
What is the solution to this dilemma in human society? The solutions, some say, are political. Others say they are military, "When I have sufficient weaponry and I have a spy TV and satellites and a big plane, then I will be dominant; no one with bother me." Others say, "No, no, it doesn't solve the problem. We need diplomatic political solutions so that everyone may talk about it." This is good but even then, you haven't gotten to the core of the problem. The real solution lies not in armaments nor in political alliances. Rather the solution lies in the acknowledgement of the fundamental unity in human experience, in the fundamental spiritual base of human life.
Though there are many cultures and many religions, many traditions, yet there remains a fundamental base in human life, a universal base. The unity of human experience that underlies diversity is universal. Is it not that all human beings are conscious, aware, that they love; they feel pain; they feel joy; they feel sorrow; they experience; they grow; they learn; they become? This fundamental human spirit is a universal force; it crosses the boundary of race; it crosses the boundary of ethnicity; it crosses the boundary of nationality. It is a fundamental base for the unification of human society and it is in this human spirit that the real basis of the solutions to all of the troubling differences and strife in this world lies.
When the human spirit is a strong, healthy, dynamic, it prevails over all of these problems and differences. When any force suppresses the human spirit, then all the antagonisms, emphases upon differences grow in magnitude. Therefore, the solution to these problems of human society lies in the development and magnification of the human spirit, of the fundamental base of humanity. In this fundamental human base, this fundamental conscious base, this fundamental unity of human experience, is the brightness and vibrancy of the human soul and human heart. In emphasis upon this lies the solution to all of these serious conflicting situations in the world today. When one recognizes the unity in human experience, surely one will want to aid one's brothers and sisters. Surely one will feel an outpouring of loving kindness for all the living beings and in this the generous experience arises and one feels, "All the living beings are my brothers and sisters and I must love and care for all of them." From this sentiment comes an expansion of the human heart and in that expansion of human love and human sentiment of care and kindness come transcendence of all of the petty and bitter feelings within the mind and love prevails and dominates. Should this happen to a great many people, then the vibrancy of the human spirit will be such that no longer can these chains hold back this vibrant spirit and it will tear them asunder. Then humanity will become as one and the human state will unify.
This is the destiny of human beings, this unity of heart and spirit. Nothing can keep the brightness of the human spirit from this universal approach. No small identification, no little grouping can hold the entirety of the magnitude of the human spirit. For this, only a universal approach will do and that universal approach recognizes the commonality of all human experience. In that commonality is the brightness and source of the human heart and soul, the bright source of the spirit of humanity. This universal source is the only unifying factor for all living beings. Some call it God; Allah, Jehovah, the universe, peace, love, compassion, consciousness. It has many facets like a brilliant diamond, sparkling, inviting the beatitude of the sun and shooting rays of elegance in all directions. This one unifying spirit, the heart of the spirit is fundamentally the same in all despite appearances of differing characteristics. It is one and you are one. There is only one. So many wars take place and so much suffering occurs to defend differences that are passing dust upon the truth of the human heart and the human condition.
Each day is a new dawn, a new beginning. Each day is a new opportunity to become, to be, to grow and to recognize the unity between all and make that your firm bridge in life. Never allow feelings of "I" and "Thou," feelings of differences to dominate you. Rather become established in knowledge of the fundamental commonality within human experience and the fundamental unity in all life and make that your stance in the world.
Each one of you is like a bright light and if there are a hundred lights, a thousand lights whose spirit shines bright, whose minds are clear, who see the unity within the diversity of humanity, surely those lights joined together make a brilliance that dispels darkness from the world. It is from this light that a bright new beginning may be forged for humanity.
Human Suffering and the Solution
Humanity undergoes many different types of struggles both individually and collectively. There is a struggle for physical survival and many living beings are deeply engaged in this struggle. When humans are struggling for their very survival, it becomes impossible for them to think beyond merely getting food for the next day. When in human society some oppression causes people to have inadequate amounts of sustenance to sustain their life, when there is war, when there is turbulence, it distracts the minds of people from the deeper pursuits of the heart except for rare individuals whose hearts and souls already dedicate themselves to the divine, and who have felt the divine touch. The people engage in survival and the material world dominates their lives.
When a few accumulate wealth and others starve because of that accumulation, by poor distribution of wealth in society, it leads to oppression that is physical, psychic and spiritual. It leads to resentments and hatreds, turbulence, war and suffering in human society. These become a vicious circle of oppression and the oppressed desiring to be free from oppression, harboring resentments and hatreds towards the oppressor. The oppressor desires to maintain control and wealth so they suppress that which might endanger their wealth and safety. As it continues, the oppressed become the oppressor. The oppressor becomes the oppressed and the wheel of karma keeps turning. This condition in human society has brought about so much suffering. How to change this in a time when the world stands upon the brink of war again as it has so many, many times? What is the solution to this dilemma of human suffering? What is the solution to the world's difficulties? Why are we meditating in a pleasant place when so many people are suffering in the world? One may ask oneself these questions because this suffering is at its heart a spiritual dilemma.
Because of the oppression of materialism upon the human spirit, the human beings do not know how to let their hearts fly, how to open their spirits, engage in grasping for material wealth. In grasping for material wealth, naturally if that wealth is limited, one has to take as much as one can, and eventually someone else will not have so much. It is a natural condition. In the human society today there is a great deal of oppression due to the extraordinary emphasis upon materialism. Only those individuals whose minds are balanced and are neither in a state of hatred or reaction nor in a state of grasping and hoarding, can bring sanity into the human society at this stage. The human spirit longs to be free. It longs to escape the bondages that tie it to mere survival. Even when you meet survival needs and the material wealth is there, still there is a restlessness in the mind, a restlessness of the heart. In this restlessness, people long to find something and if there is nothing, they turn to pleasures of body, pleasures of mind and entertainments. What happens when the entertainments end? Still the restlessness is there. Still the unhappiness is there. Still the moodiness is there. There is the longing for something more, something which will satisfy one's very essential being.
That restlessness of mind and spirit does not find peace through materialism. It is unsatisfied even with one more car, a nicer house, and wealth and pleasure. The human spirit is more than this. The human spirit wants to sing, to be alive, to be whole, to be complete and to feel free. The human spirit doesn't want oppression by poverty, commercialism, war or totalitarianism. The human spirit wants to be free of these oppressive forces and to live in freedom. What does it mean to be free? When freedom is intellectual, people may think as they like, dress as they like and do what they like. This type of freedom satisfies a great many human needs. Still those who have this type of freedom realize they do not feel free, they do not feel that their spirits are complete. Why is this? Why does the spirit need more?
What brings real freedom to the human spirit is an awakening of humanity within each and everyone and the divinity that lies quietly within that humanity. That brings a person to real freedom, to real dissolution of oppression of spirit. This freedom does not depend on material wealth. It does not depend on governments or politics. It is a freedom of the human heart. The substance that the human spirit is composed of brings the brightness, the sunshine into the life of each and every person. When the human spirit is bright, happy, filled with hope, filled with joy, then the life is good. It doesn't matter what external circumstances are. To know this type of joy, this type of freedom of spirit one must look very deeply within. One must inquire into the nature of one's own being. One must find the love that is unconditional, the omnipresent, all-compassionate Self within, the one without differences, not defined by body or mind, not defined by any resume of achievements or list of failures. The spirit undefined by all of these defines itself by its own existence, its own strength. This the human spirit, alive and vital.
Human life is a flow of ideas, a movement from the crude to the subtle, a movement from that which is stagnant to that which is dynamic, to that which is sentient, peaceful, blissful, that which is love, beauty and compassion. These are qualities of the spirit. These sentient qualities separate spirit of a human being from the mere survival of the body and mind. All the noble people in this world who have done great deeds, taken great risks, had great visions and dedicated their lives to the betterment of living beings have had this type of spirit. The spirit of such people is defined by the flow of expansiveness, dharma, a flow to truth, to hope, joy and vision. These are subtle movements from mind to heart to spirit, where hope, vision and dedication move in a united way to bring a person to the pinnacle of human life.
From this dedication, love, sincerity, vision and hope, comes so much good for human society, so much beneficence comes to human society from people who inculcate this in themselves. These are individuals undaunted by circumstances. They refuse to give in to problems. It doesn't mean they don't have problems. They may have Himalayan problems but they refuse to give in. They refuse to be confined or defined by their own woes and weals nor by oppressions of society. Their spirits soar. They choose to look on the bright side. They choose to have hope. They choose to have dedication. They choose to do something great with their lives. Such people choose to enliven their humanity, their spirit, their spirituality and not to find oppression within the woes and weals of human society, within the confines of materialism, within the struggles and deficits that come in the world of survival.
The human spirit needs to fly. It needs a great ideology. It needs a shelter, ideals that form in the mind that are expansive and that have vision. This ideological flow from survival to vision, hope, truth, light, compassion, joy and love is the journey of the human spirit. In the heart of this joy and hope, in the heart of this vision, in the heart of this love lies the unity, the underlying wholeness of this entire universe where all beings have their source, where all things are alive and whole, where there is that which is eternal amid the ever-changing forces of the universe.
This is where humanity meets divinity, where the human spirit moves beyond the confines of "I" and "mine" and egotism into the realm of the sublime, into the wholeness of life, into the very source of all and everything. In this realm, there is no duality, no pain, no grasping and no fearing. For even though the façade of life is ever moving and changing, ever new, deep under the waves there is a calmness, a stillness, a changeless universe whose very nature is peace, whose very substance is love, whose very core is the essence of your existence and the existence of all beings. At the core of every one of you, at the core of every being, at the core of all life is the Self. At the core is the consciousness that is pure, pristine, unchanging, the witness of all that is, all that has ever been, all that will ever be, ever self-reposed, peaceful, self-inclined, whole, the witness, the knower, the seer. His nature is love without definition, without confines. His essence is peace and truth. In the source, all dualities and differences find resolve and the restless human heart finds its home.
Here there is no coming and going, no beginning and end. Here the universe is but an unstruck note. Here all that has been or ever will be is at peace. From this very source, this essential Self, the nature of all beings evolves. From this, creation is born. This unconditioned love holds creation and all beings. When eyes open into this ocean of beatitude, all beings return. Let this be your shelter in the storm, your haven in dark times, your hope and your strength, your fortitude through thick and thin. When you bring this strength of spirit into the world, you can make a difference. All people who awaken the strength of their spirit, their fortitude, vision, hope and their determination can lead this world from darkness, war and human sufferings into wholeness of human society and peace that cares for the welfare of all living beings.
The pursuit of your spirit, the understanding of your innermost truth is integral to your capacity to serve the humanity. They go together; the blind cannot lead. Only those who awaken their hearts, made their spirits strong, and know the unity of all life can endure through thick and thin and find the happiness that is without definition or confines, the happiness of the human spirit that does not depend on circumstances. This greatness of spirit is in each and every one of you. You are each and every one capable of bringing this forward in this very life. Do it and do it now! Be great! Be great in your service to living beings, your sacrifice to the welfare of all beings, your love. In your sadhana, your service to the divine, know your heart. Become truly human and in so doing, touch the shores of divinity.
How to Reduce Human Suffering
There is a way to reduce human suffering, to lessen it and bring peace within the mind. In the ocean of divinity is great peace, great rest and great love. On the planet today, human suffering is very extreme. Unless humanitarian forces counter the global exploitation, it will continue until it finds its inevitable end but there is a counterforce in the world today and a shift has already begun. The strength of dharmic and spiritual forces and spiritual people is growing. It will become easier and easier to put forward the notions of those enlightened forces. There is a change of energies.
For those who would exploit, their time has ended. This has not yet fully expressed in the world. There has been a balancing of forces toward synthesis, toward a greater expansion of the human heart. Humanitarian values in the world are becoming stronger than greed, dominance and control. Those forces have been predominant on earth and they are now coming to their end. At this time, it is just beginning, nearly imperceptible, but growing. You will see.
There are many afflictions in human life. People suffer afflictions in many forms. Acharyas and tattvikasare not immune, for all suffer. Despite the troubles of life, one may do good service to others. Intention counts. All actions stem from intention. I suggest that each and every day you set your intentions in a clear way, follow yama and niyama, and review them. It would best today to begin filling out your yama and niyama journals and do this on a regular basis as a reminder of your spiritual practices. You can make your own chart then each day review each of the yamas and the niyamas and assess your day according to how attentive you have been to each precept.
Set your intentionality each day to serve Lord and work for the welfare of all beings. These actions and these noble sentiments will bring you far. As part of setting your intention, when you review each yama and niyama and reflect, do not use this to feel badly about yourself. Make it an exercise to further your development, to train your mind in certain habits.
In ancient times before a sadhaka could receive any teachings, they had to demonstrate proficiency in yama and niyama. Otherwise, the masters did not give them the initiation. It part of ashtaunga yoga and essential to your spiritual path. To recognize its importance be able to help others recognize its importance, you must you do this daily exercise. I want to encourage this practice. I think you will find it beneficial.
Through noble intent and selfless action, the world becomes a little better place for everyone. Even with your own troubles and pain, still to have noble intent and to do good works has great result. From good intentions, good actions arise. Unite your hearts and minds. When you need help from each other in your own troubles and struggles, reach out to each other. The community of acharyas is a community to help each other on the spiritual path. All share the same intent, the same noble intent.
The family acharyas and tattvikas of Ananda Seva are such people so you reach out to each other. This is a community. Stay in touch with each other. The reporting system has become a little lax and I want it to become active again. It should be a monthly communication bulletin board between everyone. Each person should report what they are doing. The form is all right to use but not necessary. Rather allow acharyas and tattvikas to talk to each other about what they are doing. Everyone must report each month.
It is important that communications between acharyas and tattvikas continue. By joining the group, the email list, you can communicate all your good works and anything else you like and you will receive this from others.
Dharma as the Path to the Lord
In this world are so many opportunities to make a difference, to make a change for the better. One must capture such moments, the opportunities to build spiritual community, to build communities of like-minded people and to engage people in activism. It is dharma to become active in the community, to become active in making social change, to become active in envisioning, putting spiritual values into action. When one takes one’s spiritual guidance, the integrity of one’s practices and puts them into action, this is to express dharma in the world. Without dharma, there can be no right action. Dharma allows human beings to find their path home to Parama Purusha. Without dharma, one cannot find the path. Dharma is vital, is the way, the path.
There are two different aspects to dharma: One is to follow dharma to the Lord of Lords, to his abode. The other is to express the values, qualities and characteristics that you discover in your association with him in this world. In this way, his vibrations may come closer to this earth. All of the living beings will have more opportunity to walk the path of dharma. There is opportunity to give spiritual service to people, to see that they have opportunity to do Brahma sadhana and to have good practices so that their hearts and minds may open to the vision of the supreme.
However, when human beings are going hungry, are oppressed and angry, their minds afflicted with anger and resentment due to oppression, and when they are oppressed by false ideologies such as materialism, "Oh if I get more and more and more then I will be happy," they become consumers. Is this not an oppression like racism or sexism? Materialism is the greatest oppression of human beings. It causes the greatest oppression in today’s world. It oppresses the human spirit. It makes people feel disheartened, depressed, disassociated from the power of their spirit. Helpless, they are told, "Don’t worry; just buy something more." Just consume. They have the identity of consumer.
What is a consumer? What depth of the heart responds to consumption? What depth of the soul responds to this? The people become very much like hungry ghosts. Their families are broken. Their communities, extended families and even their nuclear families are broken. They are so lonely. The television tells them, "Just buy something more." In this way, emptiness develops in the heart, hollowness, and oppression leads to the diminishment of the human spirit. This is a great affliction upon millions and millions of people in today’s world. It began as an affliction of the West and it has now spread to the East. However, this consumerism cannot satisfy the human heart. It is a false ideology. It oppresses the entire planet today as the large multinational corporations want to keep people in this state of oppression. They want the production workers here and the consumers there.
Beneath the wave of this, there is the rallying of human spirit to new paradigms, new ways of thinking. Spirituality in the world today cannot be separate from these issues because the spirituality of today lies not only in one’s personal development but in answering the clarion call to action in human society. There is the path of dharma to the feet of Parama Purusha, to the Lord’s feet, and there is the call of dharma to express that impassioned heart, that innermost self in care and love of all beings in the world.
When living beings are treated badly, disrespected, oppressed, tortured, humiliated or killed all for the comfort and benefit of other living beings, it is an offense to dharma. Each and every living being is an expression and manifestation of divinity. Nothing is outside of Brahma. All beings are within him. Living beings, small or great are all a part of him. None should harmed. This harming of living beings by other living beings causes a psychic imbalance in the world. It is natural to human beings to love each other, to love the small creatures, to want to be close, to want to associate, to want to connect because, in that connection the boundaries of "I" and "mine" dissolve and one feels the completeness of one’s spirit. When we laugh in spontaneous joy with friends and loved ones, we feel the connection of spirit. We experience the union where the sense of separateness is lost.
When one goes into deep meditation, one experiences deepest understanding and feeling of that union. Then coming into the world again, one must bring that understanding and feeling into the life. No one is an island to live a lonely life without the community of fellow beings. Some may be in human form, some in other forms, but all living beings are a part of a whole. Together they share this world.
When the tragedy comes that so many living beings suffer unwanted pains and sorrows for the greed of others, this creates an imbalance in the world. The prama, the balance fails. Then disharmony comes in the society. This disharmony is like a record out of its groove. It has a sour note. A disharmony in vibration results in alienation, feelings of separation. As society becomes more established in this disharmony, the sour note grows in magnitude. It creates a resonance that destroys the wholeness of the community. Many things fall away.
In today’s world, due to the oppression of materialism, due to the oppression of the ideology of capitalism, people are greatly oppressed in their spirit. There has been destruction of the fabric of society leaving many people with much pain and suffering and unmet needs. The needs of human beings do not drive social values but rather the ideology of greed and consumerism so that the few should become very wealthy at the expense of the many. It is not working. In today’s world, the awareness that it is not working is very strong. This is true in the West. In the East, materialism is still gaining in popularity because it is new and fascinating and the true hidden poison has not been felt. In the West, this ideology has been around longer and the true poison has been ingested. People are sick with it. It has destroyed families, the communities and homes. People find themselves lonely, displaced, unhappy and restless. They look around, analyze, and see what they do not have. Thus in the West, in today’s world, this ideology is losing status.
In the next few years, you will see very strongly that capitalism is becoming less and less popular and this way that has been woven with such force and this value of consumerism is growing in disfavor. It will come more and more into disfavor because the people in the West are now feeling the sting of what they have lost. In the East, that sting is not felt so much but it will come. When people realize something is missing that they need, they will want to gather more and more as we are doing here today. They will want to gather more to find solutions and build community. This movement to build in this way is just a small portion of what will be. This is the future of the world. As times get a little harder, it will grow in magnitude even more. This is a very great movement in the human society from a fundamental urge to restore balance for the pendulum has swung to one side. Any ideology that does not breed balance breeds great imbalances in the human society. Now the pendulum will swing to the other side. That is why you find so much receptivity now. This receptivity will grow in magnitude.
Progressive utilization theory (Prout) is the way of the future. People will gladly receive these concepts in human society. People want it. Their hearts want it, especially in the West because they have felt this pain. People want to come together, to feel nurtured and cared for, to see that all living beings are well-treated. It is time. It is finally time to bring forward this ideology, this counterbalance to defective ideology and its ills. Receptivity to these notions will grow and grow. The movement in society will happen spontaneously. There are three forms of revolution. Do you remember?
Q. Palatial revolution, pyramidical revolution, and nuclear revolution?
A. It is close. Palatial is what?
Q. Palatial is when there is change of regime with no substantive change of the institutions or ideology.
A. So you can get George Bush out of office, but will it change the situation? It will not change for the ideology remains in place. The lifestyle remains in place. The fundamental problems exist. They have simply put him in office. There is an illness and the illness has put the man and the regime in office. Donald Rumsfeld did not create the illness. It is the result. So if you just take them out of office, will it solve the problem? No. So what is the other type?
Q. Pyramidical. When some kind of enlightened leadership can initiate a wave of transformation in society that inspires the people, the mass.
A. Yes, but will this do, enlightened leadership to inspire the people?
Q. I don’t think so. Not in this day and age, I don’t think.
A. No. They will all want to do the opposite but it will not do because it still does not change the fundamental condition. So what is the third type of revolution?
Q. The third type is nuclear revolution.
A. What is this?
Q. In nuclear revolution is a deep cultural and ideological shift that begins with the spiritual movement. It comes deep into the hearts of the people.
Q. And then political change happens as an epiphenomenon.
A. As a result, as a result. It doesn’t start with political change. It causes political change. Because the hearts and minds of people begin to want something. They mobilize in this. When there is hope, vision of a way forward, people rush to it when the moment is correct. I have said in the West that people have taken wholeheartedly and embraced this self-centered ideology of capitalism and this approach. They have taken it to heart. The entire society. What is happening? The people are hurting. They are realizing their pain. Because of this, change will occur. They are tired of this pain. They are looking for solutions to this pain. Due to that, the human spirit wants to expand. It doesn’t want to be stuck in materialism. One more thing to consume, to eat, to wear will not satisfy the human heart. The human heart wants expansiveness. It wants to feel that moment of transcendence whether in human relations, in relation to the natural world or in deep meditation. The human heart wants to expand. Wants to feel love unconditional. Wants to know itself.
This fundamental spirit of humanity wants to expand. When it is dampened, depression becomes the number one illness. The human spirit is oppressed. The solution is the unfoldment of the human spirit in interconnectedness and wholeness. So people want this. The movement will be growing in this direction and soon you will find it will not be just in California or in alternative communities, but it will be everywhere. It will spread from the West to the East where they are still ingesting the poison and they have not yet got the symptoms but in the West, people feel symptoms, stomachache from taking bad food, so they are ready and will be more ready year by year. So now is the time for action.
A bright future awaits humanity, awaits the whole planet. It is a great time of transformation. There may be a little struggle here and there but great and positive things are going to happen. The human beings will become more and more in touch with each other, more and more connected to each other. There is no need to fear anything. The future of humanity is bright.
