Collective Awakening needed to Save Humanity

"We are going to the direction of self destruction…that is why we need to wake up. We have to change the course of our civilization...

We are going to our own destruction, this is very clear..our destruction as a race, human race, our destruction…as…our environment. Its very clear…If we continue like this… we go to extinction...

 If you want to save the world, to change the world...you need a huge collective awakening...you cannot change society and the course of history unless you can produce a collective awakening…with that collective awakening...you know that you are going to the destruction of self..and this knowledge is strong enough to help you to stop and change the way of living... 

You are me and and I am you. You are in me and I am in you. That insight of interbeing is very important...The insight of interbeing will help save us…

Everyone of us should work together for that collective awakening..journalists, monks, schoolteachers, actvists....we have to produce that awakening…." Thich Naht Hanh

(Toward the end of these questions and answers with Thich Nhat Hahn at the Nottingham retreat in 2012).
