Michael Laitman, On Quora: “How can we solve natural disasters?“
We need to start understanding and digesting the changes taking place in nature. We should start by responding to them from our human level, which is the highest of nature’s levels: inanimate, vegetative, animate and human. In other words, we should improve human connections by correcting ourselves.
Our correction is in shifting our focus from self-benefit to benefiting others and nature. Even though there is a tremendous gap between our egos, which operate by self-absorption, and positive human connection, which requires opposite altruistic attitudes—through our correction, we can correct all harmful impacts from nature.
At the moment, humanity is far from such understanding. We engage ourselves with band-aid solutions that fail to reach the core of the disasters, and we thus solve nothing. We should rather deal with everything from the highest level, from where these harmful events emerge—the point of our detachment from the upper force. If we correct our connection at that point, then the rest of nature will calm down, and there will be no more natural calamities.
Fighting phenomena such as fires and floods at the level of the fires and the floods simply shows our weakness. It shows a lack of understanding of the level in which we are supposed to act on. If we fought natural disasters on the level of our disconnection from each other and from nature, then we would enter into balance with nature at a higher level, and we would then experience that balance throughout the lower levels.
