Greater Community Realities

We have mentioned in many of our presentations the idea that the world is emerging into the Greater Community. What is the Greater Community? What does it really mean? And what are its implications for humanity? We shall speak a little on this now, though we will not give you all the information because there is so much, and so much of it would be meaningless and incomprehensible to you. Instead, we shall focus on the aspects that have bearing on your future and your fate and that have meaning and importance for your education and development now.

The Pillar of Health

There is a great deal of conversation in the world about how to regain, enhance and maintain health. But let us look at a more fundamental question before we deal with these questions. That question is, What is health? What constitutes genuine health within a person?

Pride

People have very mixed feelings about pride. On the one hand, they do not like the appearance of pride because it is arrogant and condescending. It makes others feel smaller or weaker or less capable. It has an insulting quality to it that you can immediately feel in others if they are exhibiting this characteristic.

Standing at the Precipice

Without a New Message from God, the world’s decline becomes predictable, devastating and tragic. Without a New Revelation from God to prepare humanity for the Great Waves of change that are coming, and for humanity’s encounter with other races in the universe, which it is now facing, the decline of humanity becomes predictable. If enough people cannot receive God’s New Revelation, this decline will continue. It is entirely preventable, but the hour is late.

The Great Transition

Humanity will have to unite in the future to sustain and to secure human civilization. There will have to be a greater unity and cooperation, or nations will fail, and other nations will fail, and societies will begin to break down.

The Deeper Current of Your Life

Beneath the surface of your life, there is a sacred place, a holy shrine, a place where people come to pray or give devotion, a place of deeper meaning, a place of mystery.

The First Commitment

You have a primary relationship with God, and you experience this relationship primarily through the deeper Intelligence that God has placed within you, a deeper Mind within you called Knowledge. This is your most primary relationship and responsibility. It is not a relationship with a set of beliefs or with an institution. It is not necessarily a relationship with an ideology or with one religion particularly. It is really, in its purest sense, your relationship with God.

Inspiration

Surely inspiration is something that must abide with you in meeting great challenges, in exerting yourself, in concentrating your mind and in resolving conflicts in your life. But inspiration will only occur momentarily here and there as a reminder, as something that reconnects you to something greater that represents a larger purpose in life beyond your personal concerns and interests. Inspiration can come from Knowledge. It can come from your Teachers. It can come from your companions. And it can come from very unexpected places. It is a spark that can affect you if your mind is open and receptive to it.

Learning from Others

To advance in The Way of Knowledge, to learn of the world and to find your contribution, you must be able to learn from others. So, let us now explore this together. Positioning yourself as a student offers you a great advantage and can in many ways protect you from your own destructive tendencies.

Real Change

It is becoming evident to ever increasing numbers of people that great change is needed if humanity is to meet the challenges of its time. Great change is needed in how governments function and in how people behave and respond. Great change is needed in many organizations and institutions to adapt to a changing set… Read More
