Therefore Choose Life

When will things finally be good here?

When each of us thinks
not only of himself
but of everyone.


Many people turn to me with concerns about the future. Our future depends on understanding what is taking place. When we understand the thought of creation, we will find that we are happy, confident, and whole.

We did not really have free will until the 21st century. We developed in a coercive, automated manner, alongside the constant heightening of egoistic drives.

Now that the human ego has culminated, an opportunity for freedom of choice arises. Now we can rise above our egoistic nature, and cease being dependent on it.

If we realize this opportunity, we will rise directly (and least painfully) to another nature, another dimension of reality, another sensation of life—in the entire volume of reality, in eternity and perfection.

Nature’s plan will be executed whether or not we choose the path of conscious transition to the upper dimension, just as it has until today. However, without our participation, it will come alongside the harsh impact of the “press of evolution” upon us.

We are the only intelligent creatures in the world, and everything was created for us, as we are the only ones who can emerge into a higher dimension.

The task is serious; the goal is wonderful. The current state of humanity requires searching; hence, it is a good situation. For this reason, I do not relate to it with anxiety, but rather with much hope.
