Wisdom in Action

The 3rd World Spirit Forum in Arosa

 
 

In the southern part of Switzerland lies a small town called Arosa. Until a month ago, the world knew it as a popular ski resort. Arosa is every skier's dream. Furnished with all the modern necessities, it attracts thousands of people from all over the world who come for skiing and relaxation. In 2004, Arosa became attractive for another reason; it became the center for the World Spirit Forum's meetings.

Now Arosa hosts prominent scientists, thinkers and spiritual leaders from all over the world coming together to discuss plans to deal with a world filled with crises. In January 22-25, 2006, the Arosa meeting ran alongside a corporate world leaders' conference that took place on the other side of the mountain, in Davos. These two simultaneously-running, global scale think tanks sent shivers through the air, so to speak, that the fate of the whole world was at stake. 

The Arosa meeting was a direct continuation of the forum that met in Tokyo. Tokyo's meeting laid out the basic ideological conception, and in Arosa, the process continued with discussions of concrete plans and how to realize them. Delegates met in various forums to discuss many proposals presented. Everyone united due to the sheer importance of the topic-global crisis-and their mutual responsibility to address it.

In his lecture, Dr. Michael Laitman, presents the origin and the nature of today's global crisis as rooted in the overblown human egoism. Rather than lingering on the crisis itself, Laitman expounds on the notion that "a correct diagnosis of the illness is half the cure," and shifts the focus to how we can heal ourselves through altruism.

Laitman describes altruism as nature's underlying principle, and that it is humanity's goal to equalize with this principle. He envisions that uniting altruistic organizations to advertise an "Altruism is in! Egoism is out!" message will solve the crisis and create an elevated, interconnected human consciousness. Laitman also explains that a modus operandi based on altruism is failsafe, since it is founded on, and supported by nature's laws.
