Do not look at the future, thinking and worrying about what you might lose. Recognize that the future has the power to uplift you, to give you back to yourself, to restore to you your true purpose for coming here and your true capabilities. But you must gain access to Knowledge, for only Knowledge knows who you are, why you are here and how you will be able to navigate the difficult times ahead.
If you can prepare in advance, you will be in a position to help others. If you wait, the change you will have to make will be desperate, expensive and hazardous. If you put it off or question it or doubt it or think it is not important, you will put yourself in ever-increasing jeopardy, and your chances of success will diminish as a result.
This is not an idle matter. This is not mere speculation. The New Message is telling you what is coming. It is warning you. It is preparing you. But it is still up to you to respond, to be responsible—to be able to respond and to learn how to follow, step by step, the things that you must do, with courage and determination.
