Humanity seems to have lost part of its knowledge. When we look at ancient civilizations, we can see something more advanced than anything we have today. This advanced thing is their knowledge and wisdom of spiritual truths, life, and a more harmonious lifestyle.
We have progressed in technology, science, we have connected the whole world, but for some reason, we have lost this basic knowledge and the wisdom of life. We created the paradise we thought we wanted, but we slowly realize that we have moved away from the paradise that we really had.
We complicate matters, by finding solutions we have doubled the problems we are trying to solve. It seems that we are living smarter but not wiser. It’s because we have forgotten something.
1. Humans are part of nature:
For the past two hundred years, we have become detached from nature. We have exploited, ravaged, consumed, and tried to control nature to appease our greed driven by self-absorbed madness. We have tried to move away from the natural circle of life.
2. We are connected to the cosmos and every form of life:
Certain tribes that still follow ancestral ways preserved this connection with respect and reverence. We, on the other hand, have forgotten how all consciousness is interconnected and weaved into a delicate and beautiful dance.
3. Everyone has an individual and collective purpose:
We have forgotten our purpose. We are caught in the mass trance of fabricated consensual reality. We have lost sight of our authenticity, that inner spark that drives us towards our happiness and our self-realization.
We have forgotten that we are here to paint a bigger picture.

4. Every single thing is love:
It is perhaps the deepest mystery of all that only certain seers remember. This truth is hidden somewhere deep inside us. We knew it at one point but we lost sight of it. We have forgotten that everything is ultimately loved.
5. Forgiveness is more about helping ourselves:
By being led to believe that we are separated and disconnected from others, we have forgotten what it means to forgive. In its deepest sense, forgiveness is the act of forgiving the part of ourselves that we know to be within others, the unity that we are all.
6. We were born to be free:
Remember one thing every day, you were born free. We were brought up in a reality where freedom is just a concept.
We were tied to the shackles of fear, misconceptions, false ideologies, material rewards. We have forgotten that we are free agents of change.
7. We forgot our lessons from history:
If there is anything that history has taught us, it is how quickly we forget our lessons.
We cannot be blamed individually for the mistakes made by humanity in the past, but we are responsible as individuals to learn from past mistakes and to grow as a collective.
8. Humans forgot to trust, believe, and wonder:
We have lost our enchantment with the world. We forgot to marvel at the miracle of life. Our skepticism and our cynical vision of the world made us lose trust in ourselves and in the magic of the Universe. We forgot how to believe.
9. The real power comes from within us:
Living in fear made us forget how powerful we are. We have forgotten the massive power of our will and our intention to change our reality.
We’ve been sleepwalking and following ready-made signs like vending automatons. Our true power is always within us.
10. We forgot to be simple:
Human life has become more complex and complicated. We forgot to be simple and we underestimated the importance of simplicity. Life is really simple.
Simplicity means rejecting all inessential things so that we have room to live from our hearts.
