“Many of the Great Waves that will profoundly affect our lives are still far out there like a great Tsunami slowly moving towards us across the ocean. Yet since it takes many decisions and actions and much time to prepare, preparation must start early and be sustained to be effective. We prepare not only for ourselves, but for others and for the whole world.”
“The preparation is about you. Yet the purpose of the preparation is about building relationship and service to others.”
“You are here because others worked to make it possible. Work to make it possible and others will find this.”
“When facing fear, uncertainty or self-doubt, remember you are being reconnected both in Heaven and here on Earth.”
Will_Society: As we conclude the “The New World” school session, we’d like to discuss a question to help us all solidify our learning during these two months, bringing it together into something we can take forward in our lives. Our question for discussion is:
“What did you learn during this School session on preparing for The New World that you did not know before and that you feel you must stay with and begin to apply to your life beginning now?”
Hardev_Australia: @ Will, Something I did not know before and will now attempt to fill the other parts of the Map.
MVS Society: Being receptive and following Knowledge is part of the map. Having a keen mind objectively discerning yourself and all the forces around you is another part of the map. Knowing what you feel and feeling what you know is another part of the map. There are more parts to this map. You need to know of them and be using them all to have the complete picture and make real progress. That is why there are many “Steps” in the preparation.(2:19AM)
This has corresponded to outside conditions and circumstances, which over the years and decades have altered to the extent that my body’s interaction and response to these environments has had to adapt. A previous sense of being clear & receptive has had to be shielded, physically and mentally. It is not so easy to walk around in a state of innocent awareness any more, as everything is becoming so contaminated.
The question is: How long will it take for you to come to desire it and to realize that without it, you cannot be successful, you cannot fulfill yourself, and you cannot make a real contribution to the world, which is your real intention for being here? Without it, you cannot fulfill the need of your soul. Without it, you cannot have peace and integrity within yourself. Without it, you cannot have a successful relationship with yourself, or with other people or even with the whole world.
This is striking. I have found when one is being worked on out of balance with the other the other is stalled, no matter how hard I work . When they both are being attended to, in balance, there is this flow, an ease (though not easy) the outer opens to reveal endless communion relating to the inner journey and the inner journey is reflected in the way the outer interacts with me… this balance, relationship, (union?) of the inner and the outer is such a profound Mystery to me!
While it is fine to oppose others for a good cause, in this circumstance, it changes your intentions. It changes your motivations because you are governed by fear—the fear of failure, the fear of not achieving what you want to achieve, the fear of thinking that if you are not successful, the opposing forces will be supreme. Fear gives rise to anger. Anger gives rise to hatred. Hatred gives rise to violence. And violence gives rise to further violence.
You will become like them because evil loves the attention. It thrives off of human engagement. It is empowered by those who follow it and by those who are opposed to it. For without human allegiance and human attention, evil has nowhere to attach itself. Those who are committed to it need allegiance and need engagement from others.

Everything has to be understood. Everything has to be controlled. Everything has to fit into definitions. They are slaves to their mind to their beliefs driven fundamentally by insecurity unable or unwilling to face the mystery and uncertainty of life.
Unwilling to take the risk unwilling to do anything daring, they live like a colony of gophers, they are just going to dig a hole and live there pop the head out once in awhile look around and go back in…… Nasi Novare Coram
