We are living in an exciting era of transition and transformation. For the first time in human history, a new world culture is emerging. Old geographical, cultural, national, religious and racial boundaries are slowly disappearing and the world is becoming a global village.

Three unique features define this young world culture are - the pervasive influence of science and technology, the desire for material well being and the emphasis on individuality. Old faiths, religions, belief systems and spiritual authorities are either being questioned or rejected. Young people are refusing to submit to old traditions, rules and rituals. As a result, many are sensing a void in their lives and are searching for new paths. There is an interest in self inquiry and an aspiration for self- knowledge that connects us to our daily lives.

Naturality is a response to this yearning of a young world culture. Naturality is to live according to our nature and walk our own path. Naturality doesn’t belong to any specific culture, religion or spiritual tradition. On the Naturality path, anything relevant to human life including religion, spirituality, science, business, politics, activism, sports and arts can become a door to understanding the fullness of life.

The foundation of Naturality is science because science is the language through which this new world culture communicates and the lens through which it sees. Science is the foundational myth and the epic story of this world culture. Science has the ability to connect us, regardless of race, religion, color, language or culture. It pervades all aspects of global life.

The goal of Naturality is not to create a revolution or another set of beliefs, cult, religion or system of philosophy. Naturality is born from the awareness that a revolution is already happening in the world and that Naturality simply articulates and expresses this revolution's essence and form. Naturality’s aim is to build a platform where many can connect, experience and express themselves irrespective of their backgrounds. 

Naturality points towards the source that compels us to live more naturally; this source is the natural self within all of us. Without consciously connecting to the natural self and living according to it, the current natural movement remains incomplete. And our actions may remain merely rituals rather than a clear, radical and integrated force for total transformation.
