Question: If the people making decisions today understood that the main thing is being acknowledged by society rather than having power over it, then perhaps it would be easier to introduce integral upbringing. Possibly, we should first educate such people? After all, leaders can change everything from above, and from below it would still be a revolutionary way even if we begin to teach people.
Answer: I think it will come from both sides. We need to educate everyone without exception, try to reach out to everyone. We have to explain to ordinary people who are using the Internet on a regular basis that the next state of humanity is obligatory, instilled in us by nature, and that we are pushed towards it from behind, as they say, using the rod to compel into happiness. If they understand this and move forward, it will be easier and faster for them to achieve a good state.
Once this feeling penetrates society, it will be simultaneously accepted by the leaders. On the other hand, there is hope that somehow, we will nonetheless reach the leaders through respectable people who are involved in the integral method. Their knowledge, their contact with us may later be passed to those who are in power. That is why the leaders will hear this directly, or through one of us, or through society.
We are not in favor of destroying the existing systems. We are not if favor of turning the pyramid upside down so that a housewife starts governing a country. We have already seen what comes out of that.
On the contrary, energetic, serious people who, due to their work, intelligence, and good egoistic desire, have reached the heights, are also able to see what is really worth aspiring to. And they can realize themselves in this direction just as well, even with a greater success. So, I wish them only the best in their rise and leadership over all of us.
I personally do not have these skills or aptitude. I understand what should happen, but I would gladly offer the organization of this process to our world leaders.
