“We must learn to understand each other.”

TOGO We live in an era characterized by the revolution of transport and communications. Yet a certain anxiety comes when each nation looks out first for its own interest. We must learn to understand each other, more than ever before. People of different backgrounds tend to fear each other. But we should try to enrich each other.

Globalization can give us the concept of our complementarity with all world citizens, rather than of negative competition. God expresses Himself in each of us. We are His spiritual ideas and have always existed. Now, through global communication, we have the opportunity to discover more of God's ideas, and see them expressed everywhere.
