There are two approaches when it comes to working with the environment: education and upbringing. When we educate people, we tell them about the “round,” interconnected world, which must exist in balance with nature, and the network that connects our society, which we all must join. We explain what a global, integrated world is, and what the crisis, which is unraveling between us, and the common network entails. We teach this wisdom to people, to every person to the extent of their abilities, in a form which suits them. We speak about nature, its laws, and this is called education.
The second component of global enlightenment is rearing. Within the framework of upbringing we invite people to be active in groups, different social systems. We explain how to properly establish connections, involve psychologists, and hold group events. Studying is also a part of this, but the practical part is the most important. People must perceive, adopt, and respond internally to the different forms of bestowal and unity shown on television, radio, newspapers, and so on.
And then, the reforming Light comes to us due to all the efforts of the society and gradually changes us. The double influence of education and upbringing activates the power of the masses, which is a special effect of the “majority,” as it is written: “In the multitude of people is the king’s glory” (Proverbs). This is not just a multitude; it is the majority, where a higher dimension becomes revealed.
Without your friends, you alone with your point in the heart are zero. This way you will not reach anything. But when you make an effort together on your spiritual path, you will succeed due to the effect of the masses, regardless of how miserable your efforts might be. And if humanity was to join this work, changes would happen immediately, the very next day.
