Changing how we Understand and Manage
Existence and Development Through Education
and Training in Mental Development and Growth

 

Today, we face a global crisis of related and connected human, social and ecological problems. The human problems, in their essence, are how we understand and deal with our inner mental life. The social problems are how we relate and interact with each other. The ecological issues include how we deal with nature and the natural environment.

 

The shared goals and values we need today should be sustainable, equitable, secure and peaceful development; ecologically sustainable, socially equitable, and individually secure and peaceful development.

What is needed is a paradigm change, a different view and understanding of life and existence; a different way of understanding and managing human existence and development.

Human life and existence are not just elements of society, the economy or business. On the contrary, society, the economy and business are elements of human life and existence.

We must understand and manage human existence and development in an ecologically sustainable, socially equitable, individually secure and peaceful way. It involves developing the knowledge, understanding and mental faculties to understand and manage human existence and development within the natural parameters, boundaries and limits of existence set by nature. In the process, society, the economy and business become sustainable, equitable, secure and peaceful.

We need to understand and manage existence and development from the ground up, at the level of the natural conditions of existence, starting with the individual, the mind and mental existence. The mind is where we consciously exist and act. This is where we experience, become aware and must consider the conditions of existence and how to deal with them. Change and transformation need to start in the mind.
