Evolution is not random. If we perceive anything random in nature, it only appears to us as random because we lack understanding of how nature truly operates. Nature’s laws are very clearly determined. Nothing in history happened coincidentally, and nothing today is unfolding by chance either.
The driving force of evolution is the constant growth of a desire through four levels: inanimate, vegetative, animate and human. The process of increasing globalization we now experience is due to these desires reaching their satiation and from a linear development where we could always find new solutions within our range of desires, we have reached a stage where we are becoming increasingly “rounded,” i.e. globally interconnected and interdependent.
When we understand the forces acting on our evolution, then we can understand what is required to further evolve in either a painful or a harmonious manner. The painful path is via increasing crises that lead to reduction of the human population, and the harmonious path is by implementing connection-enriching education based on revealing to humanity the real world and nature we live in.
We currently fail to perceive a lot of what is around us, and we have no clue about the forces acting on us. We do not know what we will think and want in the next moment. All of a sudden, a thought or a desire surfaces, from where? It comes to us from the secret hidden part of reality that we need to disclose. The wisdom of Kabbalah is a method, called a “secret science,” which lets us reveal that hidden part of reality.
When we perceive the entire system, the relations between us on the human level and with the other levels of nature, then we naturally start thinking and acting in a way that is balanced and harmonious with nature, shifting our evolution to a positive direction.
