Humanity is experiencing labor pains today. This is the birth of a new world. We ourselves discover these external conditions, while nothing changes in the world itself. There are people in the world today who commit suicide because of the financial crisis or because of fears and other problems. But at the same time you can find people who are not worried about anything and don’t feel the crisis at all.
It all depends on how a person discovers the world, but the world itself has no form of its own. Thus we can relax, think that it is all right, and wait until the regular flow of life will bring us somewhere by itself. Or we can also bring ourselves to a state where we will feel that we can’t agree to remain in this state any longer and must finally connect and discover spirituality, which is only revealed in a connection between us.
Everything depends on the pressure that we ourselves create. And then the usual, relaxed reality in which the rest of the people live will seem to us like the darkness of Egypt. We will feel how our enemies, Pharaoh’s troops, push us from behind, and we must jump into spirituality, like into the Red Sea.
Everything depends on how a person perceives his own state and by this leaves himself no choice but to connect with others.
