Is the value of the future
October 9th 2017
Every day, the stock exchange publishes the share prices: some are rising, others are falling, those that are rising today may fall tomorrow, and vice versa. Yes, and on a larger scale, the same phenomena have taken place in the history of the world: at any given time, certain values were held high, and others were not taken into consideration. In certain eras, for example, physical courage was glorified: heroes were those who knew how to fight each other in tournaments, duels or wars, and who were never afraid of danger. In other times, sacrifice was accorded the highest worth: people admired men and women who could give up everything in order to serve the poor, the sick and the persecuted. In our times, it is the intellect that is most highly valued: the capacity to reason and acquire knowledge in order to act on matter. But this will not last, and already another value is making its appearance: brotherhood. It is this that will motivate human beings to keep expanding their consciousness, so as to acquire the consciousness of universality.
