Answer: There is no going backward in spirituality at all because that is regression, and the only direction we move is forward.
Moving forward is based on greater connection, unity between us. The more we accelerate time, which makes us closer, we ourselves try to get closer to each other, the more we will hasten time and advance toward the future ahead of all of humanity.
We can easily find ourselves 200 to 300 years ahead while all of humanity will still be in our miserable 21st century.
The only thing we need to do is to accelerate the unity between us. A group that does this becomes like a spaceship. It flies through time feeling it as one of the parameters it can change. This is what we also say about the spiritual world that is above time and space.
