The attacks on the USA
this last September 11
th
and the subsequent bombardment of Afghanistan by the Americans have been all too present in our minds, as they stand for anew outbreak of inhumanity among us. Our having witnessed it through the television, inmany cases live, has impressed it all the more in our psyches, making us painfully aware of the extent of violence and insecurity in the world and their dull familiarity in our daily lives.As a result, this event has become an unavoidable referent in this issue of The Link.Division and conflict have ever been one of the fundamental ingredients of the humancondition as we know it and the starting point of an inquiry concerning the structure andvalues of society and the nature of consciousness. Every generation that has known violencedreams of peace for the next generation but the causes of conflict seem to be too deeplyingrained to end this insanity. Fortunately we are also doing many helpful things, but suchmanifestations of cruelty are an ever-present challenge to each and everyone, hopefullyawakening us to our full responsibility in all our dealings and relationships.We keep pointing out that the crisis we are facing is essentially inward and that, as such,we are all in the same boat. But part of the problem is that we do not realize our intrinsicparticipation in a common consciousness. By labeling and identifying with different aspectsof our being, we have sectioned reality into competing fragments. While this is done inthename of security, the result is quite the contrary, which reduces humanity to a state of thoroughgoing contradiction. We keep saying that all this is the result of thought that hasbeen caught in a self-centered movement and that what fails us is precisely the sense of self-awareness or proprioception of thought so that we do not see what is a projection andwhat is an actual fact, an essential confusion that involves the highest danger. But, likesome ancient voices crying in the wilderness, we can keep saying these things without itmaking the slightest difference.As educators we face a tremendous challenge, as such events are indicative of the over-all failure of education to bring about co-operation and peace in the world. As members of the Foundations we are led to take stock of what has been done and where we are heading.The teachings are a legacy for humanity holding out the possibility of self-transformationaway from the wave of destruction. As such they are a precious jewel of wisdom. But whosays this is not a case of seeds scattered on barren lands? In our mindlessness the earth isbeing turned into a desert. So are we ready and able to keep the sands out of our owndoorstep, out of our own eyes?A few days ago I came across a statement in a K book to the effect that the basic con-cerns of human existence are sorrow, love and the longing for the eternal. This seems rightand it is to these things that we must apply ourselves if we are to understand what we areand to bring about a good relationship and a peaceful world.
