In a radically changing world, facing the prospects of diminishing resources and environmental destruction, the question must emerge: How can one ethically live? It is important here to realize the difference between your own morals and ideology and the way that you conduct yourself in the world. People often make serious compromises here or, in some cases, are unaware of the consequences of their actions upon the world.
Many people are concerned about the future. As times become more turbulent and discordant, more and more people will be feeling the anxiety about what may happen next. Their anxiety will increase in time, for in facing the Great Waves of change that are coming to the world, events will accelerate, economies will become more turbulent and unstable. There will be greater environmental problems, and people everywhere will have to face the reality of resource depletion in the world.
It is evident that you are entering into a time of great instability and uncertainty in the world, a time where the Great Waves of change are beginning to strike the world: resource depletion, environmental degradation, violent weather, growing economic and political instability and the risk of war and conflict over the world’s remaining resources.
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.
In considering the Great Waves of change that are coming to the world and humanity’s encounter with intelligent life in the universe-the two great events of this era of human evolution-it is necessary to understand what one must do to adapt to these changing circumstances.
People want to know what is coming for humanity. They want to be reassured. They want to know that their investments in the world are secure. They want to have their expectations confirmed. They seek not to know the truth, but to have their fears allayed, to quell the growing anxiety that they may be feeling about the future of humanity.
Many people today are feeling anxious about the future. They are feeling anxious about the course that humanity is taking and about the great difficulties that are emerging within and beyond nations. Perhaps their fears are associated with specific things or specific tendencies. But however they evaluate their feelings, their feelings are giving them a sign and a clue that the world is entering a more difficult and prolonged challenge and set of circumstances. Regardless of people’s beliefs and assumptions, their feelings, if they can be anticipated and really considered, will give them these signs.
If one is really honest with oneself, one must realize that the world is changing and that Great Waves of change are coming to the world. This is more of a feeling within oneself: a sense of apprehension, a sense of anxiety, a feeling that one must prepare for something, even if one does not know what it is specifically.
Great Waves of change are coming to the world, Great Waves of change that will change the landscape of the world for everyone, great change that is the result of humanity’s misuse and overuse of the world, great change that will bring about a complexity of effects that no one can discern fully in the moment.
