SELF RELIANCE – Other Revelations: Humanity is entering a time of great difficulty, a time where you will face the Great Waves of change that are coming to the world: environmental decline, the depletion of resources, growing political and economic instability and the increasing risk of competition, conflict and war between nations over who will have access to the remaining resources of the world.
SIMPLICITY – Other Revelations: In facing a world of diminishing resources and ever-increasing political and economic instability, one of the things that becomes essential to provide stability and security for yourself and your family is to simplify your situation. Simplicity here becomes not merely a valued perspective, but an essential component for how you live. For in the future everything will become more expensive. This will force people to live in a more simple manner, to value their relationships with one another more than their possessions, and to focus on things that are fundamental to life and to the enjoyment of life.
TAKING THE STEPS TO KNOWLEDGE – Other Revelations: This course is for those who are beginning to study the Greater Community Way of Knowledge, specifically in the practices presented in the book Steps to Knowledge: The Book of Inner Knowing. I would like to speak about learning and living in the Way of Knowledge, as a fundamental spiritual focus and practice and application in life. To begin let us speak about what Knowledge is and why it is so important for you.
SPIRITUAL RETREAT – Other Revelations: It is important to take a spiritual retreat periodically and particularly at times when important decisions are in front of you. Spiritual retreat here is not simply an escape from your outer life or a reprieve from your outer duties and responsibilities. Instead spiritual retreat is a time to focus on the power and presence of Knowledge within yourself, the deeper intelligence that the Creator of all life has placed within you to guide you, to protect you, and to lead you to your greater accomplishments in life.
THE DETERMINATION – Other Revelations: You were born with a purpose and a mission in life—a service to perform given to you before you came, planted deep within you beneath the surface of your mind, planted deep beyond the reach of your worldly mind and intellect so that it could be preserved and not contaminated—only emerging when you are prepared and mature enough to recognize the true need for this, the true need to find your real direction in life.
HEALING RELATIONSHIPS – Other Revelations: Resolving relationships on a personal level is important, but there is another level of your life that you are perhaps only now beginning to consider and to experience, and that is the reality of your higher purpose in the world—that you came into the world for a greater purpose, which you have not yet discovered, that your life has another dimension that you are only beginning to consider and experience, that you are not just the product of your family and your culture. You actually are here on a mission. You have something important to do that is waiting to be discovered and expressed.
BUILDING THE FOUNDATION FOR A GREATER LIFE – Other Revelations: Facing a world of tremendous change and upheaval will require a greater Intelligence to guide you, a greater strength within you that is beyond you, but that you are a part of. It will require fortitude and compassion and patience. It will require that you relinquish what you think the world must have and your complaints against the world, no matter how deep set they may be.
THE WATCHTOWER – Other Revelations: It is very tragic that people are so unaware of what is happening around them, so preoccupied they are with their own thoughts, problems and concerns. It is a remarkable thing that the most intelligent creature should be functioning in such an unintelligent manner. For the animals in the field and the birds in the air are always watching their environment, always checking to see where things stand. Of course, they must do this to survive. But for humanity, so long sheltered in the wealthy nations from the vicissitudes of life and so reliant upon authority figures to define reality and to provide insulation, much of this natural ability and acuity has been lost.
THE GREAT TURNING POINT FOR HUMANITY – Other Revelations: At this great turning point, you stand at the threshold of great change in the world, greater than you yet realize, a greater change than has happened at any time in human history.
For you stand at the threshold of a universe full of intelligent life. An Intervention from this universe has begun. And you face a new world reality, for humanity has changed the world in so many ways, and now it is changing on its own, in ways that you cannot yet control or predict.
THE GIFT – Other Revelations: The New Message from God gives the individual tremendous power. It redirects your focus to the great endowment of Knowledge that the Creator of all life has placed within each person. If this Knowledge can be discovered, experienced, accepted and followed, then the individual will be able to establish a whole new foundation for living in the world. But this brings up the question of how much a person is responsible for their own experience, particularly before Knowledge can arise within them.
