When will we collectively see together that the history of the world played no role in preventing negative events similar to those of the past from ever happening again in this lifetime?

Yet most importantly, the greatest obstacle to our evolution is that WE ARE TOO DIVIDED.

When we separate ourselves from the rest of the world, the world becomes a lonely and difficult place to live in. When we see ourselves as completely separate, we cannot call upon the power and strength that comes from unity, from being part of a greater whole.
