Will War Ever End?

Maybe some of us thought that the Second World War was the war to end all wars, but that assumption has been proven wrong. Right now, we have wars in many places all over the planet: some small, some big and some we do not even call wars, but terrorist attacks. We also have sporadic killings, violent attacks, and bloodshed. Of course we are abhorred, tired and disgusted, and are asking ourselves: will it ever end?

War will end in 500 years

Yes, it will. It will end in 500 years. This prediction has been put forward by Martinus, the Danish visionary, who lived from 1890 till 1981. On what does Martinus base this prediction? On the fact that we are evolving away from being warlike, power-hungry and bloodthirsty towards becoming humane, empathetic and all loving. However, there are two prerequisites that we first have to accept.

We will learn compassion

The first is that we do not achieve the high goal of becoming humane, all loving and peaceful beings over only one lifetime. The process from warlike to all loving is one that takes many, many lifetimes, and we are all standing in the middle of a huge transformation of our psyches from primitive, power-hungry and bloodthirsty to advanced, humane and all loving beings. This transformation takes place in our mentality as a result of our own suffering. Each time we suffer, we will add to our own ´bank account´ of compassion, empathy and universal love, and we will learn compassion in the areas where we have once suffered ourselves. The experience of suffering, reaped through war and darkness, will be stored in our supraconsciousness, and we take this knowledge with us into our next incarnation.

Our evolutionary road

When we are reborn after a life of much suffering, we will have been ´cured´ of the desire to participate in the suffering of others, and in this way our humanity grows for each life we live. We have to understand that we all live an endless number of lives, and that we are all on an evolutionary road towards becoming real, compassionate, all-loving beings. This happens as we add more and more ability to manifest universal love for each life we live.

Some have walked longer on the evolutionary road than others

The second prerequisite is that not all of us are standing on the same level of evolution. This is obvious, as it is clear that some are more warlike and aggressive than others. Those who are the most compassionate and all loving have come a longer way in their evolution than those who have no compassion with others, and who can still find it in their hearts to participate in killings, murder and terrorist attacks. However, we are all on our way, and we will all reach the goal of becoming real, humane, peaceful and all loving human beings. Some have just walked on that road longer than others have.

We reap as we sow

According to Martinus, the last war will have been fought in 500 years, because by then, those who are warlike today will have evolved into peaceful, all-loving beings through the reaping of the sufferings they have exposed others to.
We reap as we sow, and nobody can understand his or her fate seen in a one-life perspective. Many, many lives are required for us to evolve from bloodthirsty, power-seeking, easily offended individuals to real, peace-loving human beings. But we are all on our way, and the future looks bright and beautiful once we see the bigger picture. In 500 years there WILL be world peace.

  1. Hi Else,
    It’s also one of the points I have partially addressed in my first book when talking about the evolution of individual and collective consciousness. Clearly its possible for a human being to achieve a state of harmonious and peaceful consciousness and avoid violence…..there are many examples of such individuals. BUT I struggle somewhat with this on the collective human race level. I believe as “human beings” we do have the potential, but as you mention, we are no where near achieving it collectively at this time in mankind’s history. I am going into more detail on this in my second book that I am starting to write. Mankind has, especially in our modern era, made great exponential progress in education and technology, but so little progress by comparison in terms of emotional intelligence. We really need to understand why the latter is so……maybe this is why Martinus says it takes another 500 years and more reincarnations. But even with 500 years more this gives the human race time for only a few more reincarnations. Would appreciate your thoughts on this.

    1. Hi Gurdev,
      Thank you for your comment. As I see it, progress is accelerating rapidly and as the new world impulse is flooding the planet, we will witness a shift in consciousness soon. It is already visible at a grass root level and one day it will reach critical mass and then the peace loving individuals will be the majority. We have a tendency to focus on the bad things, because the good things are not in the headlines. I don´t think Martinus would have said 500 years if he was not certain. As I see it, 500 years can be 7-8 incarnations or more, which should be enough to evolve out of being egoistic and belligerant. We will simply have to see, Gurdev. I actually write about this in my new book “The Downfall of Marriage – The great transformation within”. This book explains what drives our evolution, and I am looking for other authors to review it. Would you do it? Please? It is only around 130 pages and still unpublished.

    2. Hi Gurdev

      I say two words every day. “Big Picture”. Why? I think we get lost in ‘the detail’ too often and don’t allow ourselves to embrace a ‘big picture’ idea at all times. Whether you are religious or not, it is surely indisputable that we are all actually here, doing something. Or am I the only one and everything out there is my own personal illusion?! Ignore that.
      Nothing wrong with the need to understand and gain wisdom. That is essential. However, I believe everything is exactly as it should be. Just as Else reveals in her ‘Martinus worldview’ work. Globalisation is now attainable very, very quickly through internet technology. Humane messages are as Else replied ‘flooding the planet’. Big Picture. Everything is exactly as it is meant to be right now. I would go further and say there is no ‘now’. The canvas of life is already drawn and we are experiencing a certain part of that canvas.
      Wars and contrast have to be in order to dissipate our animal instincts. It takes ‘human time’ for that to happen but it will. The ‘Big Picture’ guarantees it.
