What is the answer? The person of Knowledge
Some people are wondering how many posts this series will contain. At this point, it looks like somewhere between fifteen and twenty. It seems like a good thing for people to see the actual revelation, even if it is in small portions.
What have we seen so far? Humanity faces wrenching adjustments due to its unsustainable pattern of resource consumption and environment abuse. These wrenching adjustments take the form of climate disruption and involuntary human migration. The leaders of the world have no desire or willingness to face this. The followers of the world have no desire or willingness to face this. This is the twenty-seventh paragraph.
“The man or woman of Knowledge sees this, of course. They are not in denial. They are not simply trying to project a preferred outcome. They are seeing what is transpiring, and they are altering their conclusions regularly as the situation changes, as the Great Waves approach. You may be certain that the Great Waves are coming, but you do not know how they will impact the world or when they will strike. The great uncertainty is how humanity will respond.”
What is the answer? The person of Knowledge. In an earlier paragraph, Knowledge was described as “the deeper intelligence that the Creator of all life has placed within each person to guide them, to protect them and to lead them to their greater accomplishments in life.” Someone is wondering “Why isn’t the man or woman of Knowledge trying to project a preferred outcome?” Because Knowledge is far greater and wiser than our preferences or anxieties. The man or woman of Knowledge does seek to contribute strength of character and strength of faculties of mind.
“The man or woman of Knowledge is watching—watching without coming to fixed conclusions, watching without condemning the world, watching without losing hope, watching without becoming jaded or cynical, watching without blaming leaders or individuals or nations, watching the changing landscapes of the world, looking for the signs that the world is giving to indicate how, where and when the Great Waves will strike.”
What is the answer? The person of Knowledge. One of the great practices of Steps to Knowledge is cultivating the ability of observing without judgment, observing without assumption, observing without the projection of blame. Just as Joseph of old told Pharaoh about the seven years of famine that would come to Egypt in the future, the man or woman of Knowledge will know a little more than most people about the difficulties to come, that less things can be broken and less lives can be lost.
“The man or woman of Knowledge has moved to higher ground, both circumstantially in their outer life and within themselves, basing their life upon Knowledge, the deeper intelligence—an intelligence that is not afraid of the world, that is not afraid of change, and that can face anything because it is intelligence given by God. It is wise. It is compassionate. It is objective.”
What is the answer? The person of Knowledge. The man or woman of Knowledge isn’t exactly a “doomsday prepper,” because he or she is thinking about the survival of others. On the other hand, the man or woman of Knowledge is preparing in practical ways for difficult times ahead.
“Here the man or woman of Knowledge is not insisting on solutions, but instead watching and encouraging positive behavior, positive awareness and positive actions. But they are not reliant on hope alone, for hope is too weak, too easily shattered, too easily diminished and deflated. Their power is the power of Knowledge—a power that does not diminish in the face of difficulty or uncertainty, a power that is not undermined by tragedy or crisis. They will see clearly and respond appropriately to the changing situations that they see immediately around them and in the world at large. For they are not afraid to look and see because Knowledge is their power.”
What is the answer? The person of Knowledge. Someone is reading this and wondering “Douglas, do you claim to be one of these persons of Knowledge of which this revelation speaks so highly?” My answer is “I claim to be a candidate for the position of ‘man of Knowledge.’ I claim to be hoping, planning, and working toward becoming a man of Knowledge.”
