Unprecedented Crisis

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 5/5/20

Humanity is moving toward an unprecedented crisis. There have been crises before—economic and social crises, when the ego of one country collided with another, or several other countries. But now we’re moving into a completely different type of crisis. We’re moving into a state where humanity must scrutinize, question, and in most cases discard everything that it has built in its entire history.

Everything we’ve built has been based on self-extolment. Now we’re moving into an era when solidarity is the only value that society appreciates, and consideration, the only trait humanity respects.

The coronavirus has exposed our interdependency. Gradually, we will discover that this mutual dependency runs much deeper than the pandemic; it is the very fabric of reality. Soon we will come to feel that anyone who is inconsiderate toward others hurts not only those he mistreats, but everyone and everything, since he is tearing the fabric of reality.

Realizing our interconnectedness will necessarily engender mutual care and consideration. The sooner we adapt to this mode of thinking, the sooner it will become our reality. The more we exert to be considerate to others, the more pleasantly, smoothly, and quickly will we transition to this pleasant life.
