How Does Spiritual Development Measure Up With Material Prosperity In Different Countries?

laitman_2009-06_1300_wQuestions I received about spiritual transitions in different countries of the world:

Question: You said that we cannot lump humanity together by force because all people are different. Does this mean that in the near future there will be a certain number of people in every country (more in some areas and less in others) who will be able to perform this complicated and difficult transition into the spiritual?

My Answer: Yes, but in fact, not everyone will perform it consciously, with understanding, in detail, and in steps. There are people in the world who have a greater understanding of this, those who have a lesser understanding, and there are also those who don’t understand it at all and only know how to use it by living the simple life of an average man.

Question: Does that mean they complete the transition almost without realizing it?

My Answer: They realize it, as it passes through them, but it passes in a relatively passive manner – only because they connect to those who attain actively. Ninety-nine percent of humanity is comprised of such passive people.

Question: There are countries where the majority of the people are still on the level of animal desires. Since we can’t push them anywhere by force, how will a new world order be organized?

My Answer: First of all, I see that Europe has more people who are on the level of animal desires than perhaps other “less developed” places. Second of all, the order of correction will organize itself, so we don’t need to organize it.

In this regard, our views and assessments of these civilizations: America, Europe, Africa, etc, are erroneous. We look at the level of knowledge, the level of our corporeal culture, the level of prosperity, and comfort of life. However, this has nothing at all to do with how well the “human” part is developed in a human being. Bedouins who live in tents in a desert could be much more human and much more open than modern European savages.
