The WTM Sweden Centre is dedicated to providing a forum and community in Sweden for those people wanting to support and learn about the critically important work of the World Transformation Movement and its support of Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith’s breakthrough, all-important understanding of the human condition.
Founder of the WTM Sweden Centre, Olof Österman is an accountant/financial controller. He is currently completing a Master’s degree of science in business and economics from Umeå University.
The Human Condition
FOR MOST OF US our main personal concerns are how to be happy, feel good about ourselves and establish a sense of worth or self-esteem. Our wider concern is how to stop human suffering and conflict, and how to end all the devastation in our world.
For a long time we have been able to do little more than deal with these problems superficially, however, we have now reached a point where patch up repairs of ourselves and our earth are no longer sufficient. The truth is we are fast approaching a state of complete exhaustion, both of ourselves and our planet. We need a profound solution, THE profound solution, if there is one, and there is.
To find the profound solution we have to go back to the basic questions most of us have long since given up struggling with. From there we have to carefully unravel what has been causing human upset from its beginning. This will take us back through the mists of time to our earliest ancestors. It is a thought journey that will require a little patience as there are many paradoxes to grasp along the way.
The time has come — and it is now a matter of urgency — to switch our attention from the physical to the psychological and to grapple with the crux problem, that greatest of all paradoxes, the riddle of human nature.
In the following exceptional video, Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith explains his key 'instinct v's intellect' treatise that unlocks the paradox of the human condition; if the universally accepted ideals are to be cooperative, loving and selfless — they have been accepted by the great civilisations as the basis for their constitutions and laws and by the founders of all the great religions as the basis of their teachings — why are we competitive, aggressive and selfish? What is the reason for our divisive nature?
The breakthrough biological explanation presented is confronting — that cannot be avoided — but it is also liberating.
And that is the purpose of the World Transformation Movement — to help spread the word about this groundbreaking solution to the human condition. To show that this answer dignifies humans in the most remarkable way. It lifts the burden of guilt from humanity. It exonerates us and restores our love of ourselves, our kind and all creation. It allows us to heal the wounds we have inflicted on the planet, on one another and on ourselves. It provides us with the key to freedom from our upset state or condition. It brings us understanding of ourselves.
I highly recommend you read more about the human condition in the chapter in FREEDOM titled 'What exactly is the human condition?', and watch as many videos about the human condition as you can — there is a whole library of fascinating and free videos here.
August: Exciting meeting with founders and members of the other Global WTM Centres, where many topics, including the polarised state of politics, were discussed, and how this can come to an end and a new transformed world begins with the clarifying insight this world-saving understanding now allows us.
