Question: I am concerned about the situation in China. What can be done to transform advancement through suffering to advancement through the way of Light?
Answer: If a strong national government still existed in China, in their place, to save China I would send the entire population to a mandatory course on the subject of Integral Education. By this means it would be possible to attract a very great Ohr Makif (Surrounding Light). And it makes no difference how much they would understand. There is no need to understand; rather, the need is to simply carry it out, just as everyone once read the writings and quotations of Mao Tse-tung from the Little Red Book; so now everyone would also be involved in Integral Education as a wonderful tool.
In my opinion this method is close to them and they are ready to do it. This is imperative; there is no other solution, and otherwise we will be approaching some extremely tragic events. What is to be done with hundreds of millions of people who are left without work, income, and are hungry for a slice of bread? What will they do in cities? Also returning them to villages is no longer possible. This is a problem of the whole world.
In fact, as of today, the world just about doesn’t need China. This period ended rapidly; it lasted around twenty years. There was rapid prosperity, and that was it; there is no longer a need for it. The whole world is in a crisis, nobody needs to buy anything. The United States is not interested in the continued prosperity of China because it must provide work for its citizens. And besides that, Chinese production is not as cheap as it was before.
There are a multitude of reasons, but we don’t understand them and think that it might be possible to correct something with the help of various economic levers, decreasing or increasing interest rates. But nothing will help. In this manner it is possible only to pass the time. We are approaching world war, but in the meantime we hope to postpone it a bit.
It is impossible to extinguish the negative baggage that humanity is accumulating more and more. There is no solution to any of these questions. After all, masses of people, weapons, hatred and strife between everyone are connected to this; all of these have become an insolvable problem. If there will be local flare-up, the fire will spread all over the world. As of today the state is deteriorating rapidly not just towards local flare-ups between individual nations, but in the formation of two very large blocs that are against each other.
The Creator expects our correction. Forces are revealed and shaped according to the lack of work on our part. Here the laws of nature are active. If we don’t open the crater of the volcano to release a little of the pressure that is gathering in it, then it will heat up until it will ultimately erupt.
It is now impossible to release the pressure through specific actions in one place or another in the world, as had been done until now. The world requires correction, connection. But it is in a state that is very far from connection, nobody wants to hear about this. All the organizations that were once established for the sake of connection, as in the example of UNESCO, the United Nations. and major international organizations, with time have become political forces. No organization has remained that will work for the benefit of building connections between people.
We have reached the final point of clarification, and understand that it is impossible to build something with the help of an “egoistic person.” Now the question is will people want to accept Integral Education? For if this will not be, it is frightening to think what will happen to the people of Israel. The whole world will pounce on us. This is a very serious problem towards which one cannot turn a blind eye.
So going out to disseminate is a question of survival for us. Our survival depends on our going out to disseminate and the degree of our success in it. The high spiritual method is becoming something very practical in life. Spirituality, dissemination, and preventing the threat of world war are all connected. Suddenly, in a moment, the world can be transformed, so we must relate to this with great seriousness.
