CONVERSATIONS THAT MATTER
A report from India A conversation with Abhishek Thakore
Abishek Takore, integralist based in India, talks about the situation in India, about the culture differences and what he is doing to create a better life in his country.
Last year we could witness a situation where many people lost their businesses, their income and even their homes. After the End of the Corona measurements – if they ever end – a huge percentage of people in the west will be pushed into poverty and in the less fortunate countries into hunger and starving. At the same time the accumulation of money of the richest people in the world has increased in an incredible way. The gap between these few ultra rich people and us “normal” people has become such an abyss which makes one sick when only thinking about it. A single person. Like Bill Gates, owns more agricultural land in the US than anyone else, even combined. His accumulation of wealth surmounts the amount of what single states have at their disposition to run the country.
Bill Gates as a farmer, what would you think that he would do? Help Monsanto and other chemical monsters? You bet. He doesn’t make the impression of being willing to share anything with anyone, despite his labeling himself a “Philanthropist”. If he was such, he would share his richness, give substantial amounts to countries with severe humanitarian problems instead of trying to earn even more money by pretending to “help” them, as documented widely in his engagement for vaccinations. What he and similar people are doing is the antidote to human life aligned with nature and soulful human community.
What can we do when we realise what is going on in the world? Give in to the abuse of power? Become depressed, ill and even suicidal with the conviction that we are powerless against such overwhelming demonstrations of power? Not a good choice, it enables the evil doers and doesn’t help to change for the good.
What if we tapped into our innate wisdom? What if we developed our full humanity by growing up and getting aware of our personal power? What if we came together and supported each other and, by developing healthy communities, created an antidote to the craziness of the present time?
The story of “Sharing Corn” makes clear that we ourselves thrive when we help others around us to thrive – and if we remain egotistically concentrated on ourselves our initial thriving diminishes and disappears. With other words: the best way to do good to yourself is doing good to others, to your community.
We are called to embrace this way in these times of disruption and global – maybe even cosmical – transformation. Greed and egocentrism has brought us to the breakdown, it doesn’t work anymore, it won’t get us out of this very severe crisis. A leap in consciousness is called for, the resolution of the problems from the next level. It won’t be a technical and materialistic solution, but a shift in the souls of people toward love, toward collaboration, co-creation and joy.
Many people and small pockets are working on this new way of being in the world for a long time. Now it is up to the rest of us to join forces and bring forth the change in human consciousness and behavior. Please get inspired by Hannelie Venucia who shares with us her book “Sharing Corn” and inspires us to join her and many others on the way towards love and peace.
