What human qualities have we given free reign to that foster using the most advanced technology for wars, lead us to ignore the environmental impacts of what we do, and has created divisions among us and a pervasive sense of separateness? What qualities are now needed to help us evolve into more civilized, caring societies, using our advanced technologies for the common good?
When we fail to see these forces at work, in our lives and communities, we’re more readily deceived by their empty promises. These underlying forces of bewilderment fuel misguided modes that harm our planet and the species that live on it as well as degrade our collective good will. We need a shared secure base among our global community to begin to heal ourselves and our world.
