Thank you for your questions! These are things I’ve spent a lot of time wondering about myself! So, as for why we seem to take two steps forward and one step back, I think that’s just part of being human, we need mistakes to learn. I think It’d be weird if we marched forward in a perfectly straight line (as much as we may wish we did); we’re just not that kind of thing.
As for whether we will ever achieve harmony and peace with each other and the planet, this is a pretty difficult question. I do believe that it’s at least possible in principle, but whether it actually happens is another thing entirely. I used to spend a lot of time worrying about whether it would but I never found an answer, and thinking about it made me anxious. So I started thinking about what it means to live in ‘harmony’. After coming across Gaia theory, this became much clearer. For us to live in harmony, we need to each understand our part within Gaia and play it well; this is all anyone can do. So now I try not to focus too much on what will actually happen and instead focus on trying to make my actions (however small) count towards achieving harmony.
I hope this helps a little!
