The Pandemic and the Russo-Ukraine war serve the same purpose of reaching higher consciousness

The pandemic is not only due to the Sars-CoV-2 virus and its variants, but it is as much due to the psycho-socio-politico-economic conditions predisposing the world towards it, as explained here.

The psycho-social cause for the Russo-Ukraine war is the threat perceived by Mr. Putin's Russia from the advancing influence of NATO in its neighborhood. There may be a legitimate fear that this will lead to politico-economic dominance, if left unchecked.

From the point of view of universal consciousness, which resides in all individuals as the core of one's being (or soul) and as 'pure consciousness' that is reached in the deep sleep state, what matters is integrity and a sense of equilibrium. Just as the individual's core remains unsettled till things are sorted out, the universal consciousness is unsettled till the disturbances caused by psycho-social excesses by the human society is balanced out.

The simple principle of 'all are one, be alike to everyone', if followed, allows the core of one's being as well as the core of humanity to remain in equilibrium. When this sense of oneness is absent then a sense of alienation sets in, allowing disquiet and agitation to prevail. The wisdom of oneness can bring to an end to the suffering induced by the ignorance of the universal consciousness.

As long as the NATO considers Russia to be an adversary and vice versa, the current hostilities will persist. Large heartedness and feeling of oneness are more important than talk about defending democracy. Once mutual trust is built up, the spirit of democracy will prevail everywhere.

Not recognizing the role played by psychosocial causes in preserving or disturbing the equilibrium of universal consciousness, which is independent, unattached and has its own dynamics, can only lead to suffering and stagnation of human consciousness. Learning from the setbacks can help reach higher level of consciousness.
