There is a higher force in nature that controls the reality we live in, and no matter what efforts we make, we can do nothing outside of this force’s plan and control.
We should thus try to understand the destination to which this force advances us, what it wants from us, and that everything we have done, do and will do is its outcome.
We hope that one day we will attain true knowledge and awareness of where we are, what existence and environment we are in, and the forces that operate on us.
We are tiny particles of creation who think that we understand something about it. Also, when we understand something, we use that understanding solely for self-benefit.
What can we thus say about our participation, efforts and the goal we try to place before ourselves? Until now, it was all for the worse.
The more we have developed science, technology, medicine, art and culture to improve our lives, the more we find ourselves immersed in increasing problems on all scales, with abounding depression, anxiety, stress, drug abuse, suicides, social division, unemployment, poverty, crime, nuclear anxiety and natural disasters, to name a few.
Everything that we have created to benefit ourselves, from our self-centered mind and feelings, has ended up in the creation of a terrible world, which continues sinking into more and more problems from one crisis to the next.
We are fast approaching the realization that our myriad efforts to make a better world are futile, and it is in order to show us that we are operating on faulty self-aimed desires that base our every thought and action.
Until we undergo an upgraded learning process to discover the nature of our desires, our world, the laws of nature, and how we can harmonize ourselves with those laws, we will continue bearing witness to a deteriorating world.
