Student Question: Is it possible for a true leader to emerge within today's world? I feel like we have to come to a place like this?where we exclude the world out there?in order to cut through our own Maya and the Maya of others, and the society at large.

"We don't exclude the world. We invite the world, and we want to become a model of a functioning community that can act in ways that are true and authentic," explains Shunyamurti, the founder of the Sat Yoga Institute in Costa Rica. "All historians who have studied this subject recognize that civilizations have life spans. Theyre born, they have a Golden Age, they expand on the basis of the wisdom of the founding fathers and mothers, etc . . . and it becomes more and more corrupted as they gain more profit. The ego appropriates everything. Pretty soon they become like those they originally rebelled against, and their freedom now turns into a self-enslavement and an enslavement of others. They become so corrupt that they cannot survive, and they gradually die."

"Today were at the point of the death of a global civilization. And the system is too corrupted and sick to allow a leader, like the kind that you hypothetically mentioned, to survive. . . . And so we are at a time now in which the fall cannot be prevented . . .but now were at a point that?because it is global and planet-wide?and because it is not only political, but it is also ecological . . . it has to be resolved in a far more radical way than could be done in any ordinary, conventional mindset. And this requires a quantum leap in our understanding of the nature of reality as being very than our ego minds have presented it to us as. And that requires a transcendence of the ego and a downloading of Cosmic Intelligence. And nothing short of that is going to help." Recorded on the afternoon of Tuesday, December 1, 2009.
