The Mind Doesn’t Give Instructions To The Ego

Dr. Michael LaitmanWe have to bring the world to the moment of truth, to the understanding of the fact that only man himself needs correction. We have to change our nature to balance the evil within us. Otherwise we’ll continue to destroy the environment. Today this inclination is becoming illogical: We sow death in our homes. This is common knowledge, it is repeatedly written about, and we see it with our own eyes, we experience it ourselves as blasts of heat and cold, tsunamis and storms. And there’s more to come in the future.

And yet, as in a state of unconsciousness, we keep indulging our ego time after time, just able to suppress the natural instinct in a man’s voice of reason, that he is stuck in the same dead end under the continuing barrage of blows. Looking from the side it’s impossible to understand how it can be.

Yet, this is what the Creator has prepared for us, a series of misfortunes, until we reach the recognition of evil, until at least we begin to ask the question: Where is it all coming from and why?

The problem with today’s leaders is that they are deaf to the sound of reason and want only one thing: to continue the chase after wealth and control. And most importantly, they don’t see a workable solution. Many already understand that the whole thing is about human nature, but they all throw up their hands in despair when confronting this problem. They only know two means: military might and money, which enable them to hold on to power. No other options to rule are taken into account.

I tell them that it’s possible to change people through integral education; within a few years they will see improvement and prosperity. They listen, but they don’t hear. They can’t hear for all their intelligence.

  1. Why would they, for ‘we’ came here for this reason, not to be friends…

    How can a man, who’s deepest desire is not spirituality and meaning but vampiric thirst for violence and power think clearly? He can not… The blood blinds him.

    Honestly… many people need shocks to awaken out of this state… Perhaps drugs have a use after all?
