You stand at the next decade – a decade of tumultuous change, a decade of evolution, evolutionary change, not just personal change, not just political change – evolutionary change.
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.
Your eyes and ears only perceive reality within a certain band of a greater spectrum. Your senses were created to navigate the physical world and all of its opportunities, hazards and uncertainty. Most people are engaged in the world purely on this basis, often oppressed by poverty or political oppression and the constraints of family expectations, and cultural trends and attitudes.
There are three stages in one’s overall development. There is dependence. There is independence. And there is interdependence. In the simplest way, this is demonstrated in a person’s life by the fact that they are very dependent when they are infants and young children, slowly growing out of dependence to a state of independence as an adolescent or young adult, when they begin to differentiate from their parents and family. Then there is interdependence, when they are married and have a family, or unite with other people in spiritual community and so forth.
You have two fundamental aspects to your nature. You have a personal mind, which is associated with your body, a mind that has been conditioned by your cultures, your society, your families and by nature itself. This mind is driven by the need for survival. It is driven by the need for security and for resources. It is fundamentally fearful because it is so very aware of the risks and the prospect of loss in the future. It is haunted by this prospect of loss, and it is governed by the need to offset these risks.
Everyone wants freedom – the freedom to survive, the freedom to be secure, the freedom to meet the basic needs of life: food, water, clothing and shelter. Everyone wants the freedom to pursue their goals and interests. Everyone wants the freedom to establish meaningful relationships with others.
Humanity is entering difficult times – times of greater uncertainty and upheaval; times where humanity is facing Great Waves of change that are converging on the world: resource depletion, environmental decline, changing climate and violent weather, increasing political and economic instability and the ever-increasing risk of war and conflict between groups and nations over the remaining resources. It is a time that will aggravate longstanding conflicts and resentments between peoples and nations. It will be a time of growing competition and growing uncertainty.
For centuries, people of all cultures and faiths have wondered about life in the universe, speculating and pondering on the possibilities there. What would advanced civilizations be like? What would they have achieved with their technology? How would they be able to travel within the vast distances between stars and solar systems? And have they themselves, as advanced races in the universe, overcome competition, conflict and war?
