Session 8 - The Future Depends on the Environment
A person's future depends solely on one's choice of one's environment—on building it. It's especially so today, since we have reached a point where we are all completely interdependent, and globally and integrally connected. We see the extent to which people all over the world determine each other's futures. If some country, even if it is geographically distant, starts to act defensively or mistreats another country, it changes my own life, locally. I have to take measures against this adverse influence, and take better care of myself and of others.
We need to understand that that mutual dependence necessitates our building and designing a global education for everyone. In that education, we must first teach ourselves and others that in the end, our future depends entirely on the environment.
