Do not complain about the world. Do not be overly critical of other people, for in the face of the Great Waves of change, many people will increase their foolishness and their self-deception. They will act even more foolishly. But you must bring your attention to bear on what is before you to see, to know and to do. If others are sinking, you must rise. If others are failing, you must succeed.
This then will be your gift to others. You will give others this strength as you gain it yourself. This begins to fulfill a greater purpose and a greater destiny that you have for being in the world. For there is your specific contribution, which remains to be discovered, and then there is the power and the presence of Knowledge. Receive this power, express this power and encourage this power in others.
If you can do this, you will see that the Great Waves of change, though extremely hazardous and consequential, in fact represent a great calling. It is a great calling for Knowledge to emerge and a great calling for people to respond and to become strong and united.
