Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What are the biggest challenges facing humanity these days? Why are they a big deal?“
Increasing pain and suffering around the world should end up sparking our realization that nature is guiding us to an eventual abstinence from the rat race for technological, industrial and financial dominance, and we should instead pay attention to our human development, to the education we need to give—not only to children, but to entire nations, to humanity.
International relations have become sour, and the more sour they become, the more they pose a threat. I think that as a result of the increasing pain and suffering in the world, we will start understanding that we have no choice but to start nurturing positive human connections.
Nature will no longer let us progress in divisive directions, but will force us to unite—if not voluntarily then through suffering. Therefore, humanity’s greatest challenge is in uniting above division in order to reach balance with nature. Until we align with nature, the pain and suffering we experience, as bitter as it is, functions to heal us.
