Ayesha_Society: Here are Marshall’s quotes from last Saturday’s chat:
“Regarding great and inevitable events, you never want to be the one who later laments “I didn’t see it coming,” when what is coming is see-able.
Self Knowledge must be accompanied by Knowledge of your immediate environment and the larger forces of change that have the power to change that environment. Knowledge within you works in response and coordination to both the Higher Powers and the changing environment. To see the pathway, you must know the risks.
When the great Tsunami approached the coasts of Indonesia, the animals headed for higher ground while the people stood and wondered why the tide was withdrawing so extremely. So what is real intelligence?
In broad terms, the NMG is telling you what you are preparing for if you take the time the read the many GW teachings that the NMG provides. The landscape is constantly changing, but life is moving in a discernible direction. Patiently learn to discern that direction with…
Ayesha_Society: … [without?] relying upon simple explanations, answers and assumptions. Do the work and you will receive the reward. This will take time and attention on your part.
The New Message is here to build strength in you in all ways, not just one or two ways. You must be able to adapt in order to be of real service in a radically changing world. This comes down to seeing, knowing and taking action with patience and determination. You prepare for this each day for the pivotal times ahead when these things will be essential and called for.
In the early stages of recognizing and facing the GWC, there can be a strong sense of panic and running around not knowing what to do or to focus on. But eventually, you settle down into a long and determined preparation on both the inside and the outside. The NMG is here to prepare you for what is coming.
The preparation for the GWC will require many things of you, much of which you cannot yet see. Yet as you learn more about the inner landscape of your…
Ayesha_Society: … mind and the outer environment around you, these things will come to you as small wisdoms, important warnings and corrections to make. There are many layers of learning here and only the patient and determined approach will give you these things. This is about taking a real journey. Groping for answers is not taking the journey. Taking the journey is the answer.
If you cannot see a future in something, then it likely has no future for you.
Watch for the signs from the world, but wait to make conclusions. In this way, over time, you will be able to see the big picture. Real wisdom does not come all at once, but in stages.”
Will_Society: Also last week, Marshall shared this impactful passage with us from Building Your Ark:
“Your ark is small. You cannot stockpile food for the rest of your life. You cannot stockpile anything for the rest of your life, so that is not the emphasis. You will need a certain amount of resources available to you so you do not fall prey to the shocks that the Great Waves of change will bring. You cannot provide safety and security for yourself forever, so the real ark building is more internal than it is external. Yes you should have three months worth of food. And you should have three months worth of financial resources at the minimum. Yes your health must be checked and it must be strong. Yes you must be with people who can assist you in building your ark and in building their ark as well. Yes you must leave divisive relationships that have no future and no promise. Yes you must re-evaluate your life, your involvements, your possessions—everything. This is building the ark. This is…
Ayesha_Society: Welcome and thank you for being here to share this important time together. Today marks week 5 as we continue to explore the core revelation of the first month “The great waves and your life”, part of the March-April school session on The New World. Let’s begin with our first question for today.
Has the Great Waves Teaching affected the way you see normal human activities in day-to-day life?

What can I do to protect this earth from collapse within and intervention from beyond .What is it that I must do.
It is a fundamental problem in human relationships. Difficulty with your family members, parents or other very influential people in your upbringing create a kind of dam within yourself that you can carry with you throughout your life, … limiting your awareness, influencing your current relationships, holding back your affection and trust for other people, harming you as if you were strapped and held in place to some event in the distant past.
People carry this restraint into their parenting of their own children— keeping them distant from their children, disabling them from empathizing with their children. And they often end up acting like their own parents, reflecting their experience of parenting in their own childhood, carrying this forward now inappropriately with their own children, often subjecting their children to anger and harshness and emotional…
How will you maintain your focus on the great promise for humanity?
How will you avoid losing faith in yourself, in other people, in nations, in governments, and in God, as your world undergoes cataclysmic change?
Your life then is destined to immense disappointment, confusion and disillusionment if your faith is in things that are seen and heard and touched.”
This is not a time for false self assurances this is not the time for ambivalence or complacency. This is a time to be aware and observant. Take all the energy you spend in condemning others in criticizing governments in repudiating leaders and…
Will_Society: As conversation on the first question continues, let’s also begin to look at our second study question this week:
How do you feel that the Great Waves of change are connected to humanity’s emergence into the Greater Community?
It is difficult to know if this is true since their activity is so well-hidden and not out in the open. It seems that there is an acceleration both of the degradation of the life support systems of this planet in addition to the acceleration towards global conflict of the world’s most powerful nations. This has been mentioned in the NM writings.
I feel that part of the main issues difficulties and obstacles related to the Great Waves of Change will be and already are the pervasive forces we are experiencing in the mental environment. These forces will make it very hard for us to prepare for the Great Waves and to follow Knowledge. Yet it is Knowledge itself which will be the only alternative, our only true Source for freedom and strength to become an independent and sovereign race within the Greater Community of intelligent life in the universe.
With preparation, there is no shock. There is only confirmation.” from The Shock of the Future
This is called seeing. Most people do not see because they do not look with this emphasis. Impatient, they want conclusions. They want solutions. They want answers. They want to understand it right now. They want the picture to be evident right now—evident and comprehensible. They do not patiently wait and watch for the signs to tell them, allowing the picture to become clear, without their interference. This is called seeing.” GWC: The Freedom to Move…

And even more fundamentally, it points to a change of heart in people around the world. If they value what civilization provides, which are wealth, security, stability and opportunity—things which primitive peoples rarely ever experienced—then they will have to join together to build this for the future. It will not be a one-world government. That is silly. But it will be a world of cooperation because the alternative is too terrible to consider.” Rebellion, Revolution and War
It represents your relationship with your Creator and with all in the physical universe who serve the Creator in many, many capacities. It demonstrates an essential and translatable spirituality that you can learn, that you can utilize and that you can give to others. It represents a gift, not only from your Creator, but from the Wise Ones in the Greater Community who seek to restore and to preserve Knowledge as a living force in physical existence. Their achievements and their contribution are reflected in a Greater Community Theology and in a Greater Community Way of Knowledge. Their methods of learning and their achievements in this regard are demonstrated in Steps to Knowledge in its adaptation into human life.

To understand the condition of your parents, for example—the environment in which they lived, the economic pressures they were under, their own limitations, and if you have the opportunity to discover, what their own childhood was like. Under what conditions did they grow up? What was the world that they had to experience? You may feel wounded from your relationship with them, but you must see their own condition objectively. This makes…
fact of life that you will encounter disappointment, it must then be seen as an
advantage, not always something you can appreciate at the outset, but an
advantage nonetheless. There is very great effort by many people to avoid
disappointment at all costs, but we want to encourage you not to avoid
disappointment. Bring it on! Let it happen! There are lessons you must learn in
life, and disappointment will illustrate many of them. We do not encourage
people to repeat their mistakes, of course, but certain lessons are waiting for
you. Taking advantage of them means that they can unburden you so that you may
walk lightly through this world. The burden of avoiding disappointment is a far

providorship as well. As you provide more for others, you must call upon your
own strength. You cannot be obsessed with your needs, wants and difficulties
because you have placed yourself in a situation that requires you to rise to a
greater occasion and ability.
Will_Society: The Intervention’s influence upon the world may be like climate change itself, in that one weather event may not be identifiable as the result of climate change, but overall the trends point clearly to global heating.
Overall, the world we see is being influenced by the Intervention. But trying to know that any one indecent or phenomenon is coming from the Intervention feels like very dangerous thinking.
