Session 11 - A New Humanity

×

In the near future, humanity will rid itself of all redundant occupations other than those considered necessary, meaning provision of necessities for life under reasonable conditions. People will work 2-3 hours daily to provide for their necessities and the rest of the time will be free.


This free time will be used for designing our environments, affecting ourselves and everybody, each affecting all the others. We will take part in trainings so that around each of us there will be appropriate influences from several environments and societies in which we will continually grow in the ideal way.


When we tend to fruits and vegetables in a greenhouse, we provide them with all the conditions they need, and in the right combinations to grow well. The result is a wholesome, sweet fruit. We will have to apply the same process to ourselves and to our children. This will be man's primary occupation in the new era.


It is not a coincidence that the crisis is not a negative one but a positive one. It's the birth of a new society, a new humanity. In it, we are beginning to "redesign" ourselves in a new degree of connectedness, implementing that full potential that exists in each of us.
