Then we become hardened in thinking and doing towards ourselves, hardened towards each other, and hardened towards Mother Earth who we then abuse. Individually as well as collectively as organizations, or peoples against each other. But it really can be different!

The current Fall of Atlantis

Anyone can fall into this trap: Thinking you are better than the other. You and I both. Especially if you’re in a leadership position in government, politics, religion, business, or if you’re a VIP, but also if you’re a manager, spiritual teacher, coach trainer or guru.
