Out of all the phrases, or analogies, or metaphors that the New Message from God could have used to describe what humanity faces in the times ahead, it used the phrase “Great Waves of Change.” I have pondered on why this is so.
Where do waves come from? I have been told they come from winds (tsunamis being a notable exception). Where do winds come from? I have been told they come from differences in barometric pressure. Where do differences in barometric pressure come from? I have been told they come from mechanical sources (masses of air bumping into each other) and thermal sources (masses of air being cooled by other masses of air). I could go on, but I believe you get the idea that waves are the end point of a series of forces. Furthermore, some of the forces exerted their influence at a significant distance from where the wave broke upon the shore.
Big ongoing disruptions
And so it is with the great waves of change. Just as the waves are an ongoing phenomenon, the waves of change are an ongoing phenomenon. Just as the waves are the end points of series of forces, the waves of change are also the end points of a series of forces. The difference is that the waves of change are the end points of a series of forces of change set in motion by humanity’s choices.
Why do I use the word “disruptions” to describe the connotation of the rather neutral word “change?” Because the changes involved are mentioned in the second paragraph of the first chapter:
“For you are now living in a world of declining resources, a world whose climate has been seriously affected, a world whose ecological condition is deteriorating, a world where humanity will have to face the prospects of great shortages of food and water and the risks of disease and illness on a very large scale, even affecting the wealthy nations of the world.”
I say, and I say it again; right or wrong, true or false, they mean it. If you don’t like the phrase “Great Waves of Change,” you can use “big ongoing disruptions.” Either way, difficult times are ahead.
