Do You Know What Nature Requires From You?
Nature doesn’t tolerate imbalance. Heat moves from hotter to colder to even out the temperature; air pressure is balanced by wind; water flows to lower ground until it evens out the higher level from which it flowed. In every place, in every phenomenon, Nature strives for balance.
Another example is our body-temperature control mechanism: Temperature receptors are dispersed throughout the human body and update the information-processing center in the brain (hypothalamus) on any change in the surrounding atmosphere. The brain then sends orders to effectors such as sweat glands and muscles, which secrete sweat, contract, or shiver, thus maintaining the body temperature. In this way, the body balances the heat that it generates with the heat that it loses, maintaining body temperature at a constant 37°C (98.6°F).
Nature’s imperative to bring everything into balance is beginning to affect humanity. The unrest and protests that we see throughout the world are expressions of our need for balance on the human level. While we are all different as individuals, the criterion for balance is the same for us all: we must support one another; there is no other way. Whether we want to or not, Nature’s way will win and we will have to comply. The only question is at what cost.
How Balance Between Man And Nature Can Be Achieved
Today, everything we do requires energy and effort on our part. If we are in balance, we need hardly make any effort to obtain anything. Instead, we are in a state of ease, where anyplace we go, everyone is ready to help us with whatever we need. In turn, we are ready to reciprocate. Everything flows easily, we waste much less energy, and encounter far fewer obstacles.
In every realm of life, being in balance clears resistance. This applies to interpersonal relations, as well as anything we produce from Nature. Through unity among us, we will bring the whole of Nature to inclusive balance and will lack nothing. There will be abundance everywhere.
Our planet can feed far more people than Earth’s current population, provided we do not interfere with Nature, and provided we unite like organs in a single organism.
The next step in evolution is not a new species (although that, too, may happen). The significant new stage of evolution is actually a shift in human consciousness. In this process we must gradually develop our awareness and understanding; we must build the analysis-synthesis mechanism of reality. We must figure out how our planet operates, who we are, and what our approach to life should be. We are living in special times. If we succeed in opening our eyes, softening our hearts, and expanding our awareness, we will be able to move through this stage quickly, successfully, and easily.
