Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
My vision has always being to see a world, where one can move, eat, live and stay in any part of the country without any hindrances, restriction like passports and visas to regulate the movement of humanity. I want to see where everyone is one another’s keeper, where peace, love, kindness, humility, honest and friendship is every one motto and actions. The world where there is no supremacy over anything. I therefore, want to see a world of freedom, justice and equality. The world I am seeing now seems to be sick and we have to trained the minds o each and every one to think positively and to send these good and kind thoughts to the world.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The most pressing problem facing the wold today is lack of honesty and discipline leaders to lead individual nations. In view of this, the collective individual human race in all the nations in the world today have cultivate the habit of hate, greed, selfishness against each other affecting the human race. The most problem facing the world today is “MONEY” ruling over the supremacy of the Inner Man or the Ego, we could witness that all over the world people are killing each other for money and creating social vices, lies victimisation all because of money.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
The problems facing the world could be solved through, (a) education on spiritual leadership, where man could realised his true identity as a Spirit, (b) Service to humanity, leaders, should know that they are only channels to serve the masses and to free them from mental slavery and freedom from poverty and shelter.
