A Lot More People Think We Might Have Visitors

A lot more people think we might have visitors

Some public opinion polls ask the same question on a regular basis. The Right Direction / Wrong Track poll is an instance of this. Sometimes, polling organizations ask the same questions as they did on an earlier occasion, to measure how opinions has changed over time. For example, the Marist Poll asked the same question in 2005 and 2018. From time to time, pollsters have measured public opinion regarding extraterrestials. I am writing to share of a poll repeating a question regarding extraterrestrials.

A lot more people think we might have visitors

The poll is the Gallup Poll. The first time the poll was taken was in August of 2019. The second time the poll was taken was in July of 2021. The question asked was “Which comes closer to your view – some UFOs have been alien spacecraft visiting Earth from other planets or galaxies (or) all UFO sightings can be explained by human activity on Earth or natural phenomenon? The percentage of people expressing the possibility that UFOs have been alien spacecraft jumped from 33% to 41% in two years. The “human activity/natural phenomenon” group declined from 60% to 50%. If this is a representative sample of American adults, it means that millions of American changed their minds on this subject.

There were multiple subgroups that had significant increases over two years. College graduates, people with some college, men, and middle-aged adults (34 to 55) all showed significant increases. I consider the Gallup Poll to have downplayed the significance of these changes. The headline of their article read “Larger Minority in U.S. Says Some UFOs Are Alien Spacecraft.” It didn’t say how much larger (about 20 million Americans). And it didn’t give the time period over which this change took place (a mere 23 months). A lot more people think we might have visitors.

What inspired so many people to change their minds?

I consider the US government UFO/UAP report of June 2021 to have had a substantial impact on this change in public opinion. The UFO/UAP report confirmed a belief that there were many more UFO sightings taking place than what the government was reporting. The reports of unusual movement patterns were confirmed. The report debunked beliefs that these movement patterns were instrument malfunctions or pilot hallucinations. The confession of ignorance by the US government sparked a certain degree of wondering in the American public.

Are the visitors here for our benefit?

There have been two recent public opinion polls asking if UFO’s constitute a military threat. There have been many polls on the existence of intelligent life on other planets. A growing number of polls ask if intelligent life from other planets is present in our world. There is a question I would ask that no pollster has asked yet. The question is “If intelligent life from other planets is present in our world, are they here for the benefit of humanity?” What do you think?

The New Message from God teaches what is currently a minority viewpoint on the subject of extraterrestrials.

1) Intelligent extraterrestrial life exists
2) Extraterrestrials are intervening in human affairs today
3) This extraterrestrial intervention is a threat to human freedom

This extraterrestrial intervention relies upon secrecy and human acquiescence. Nobody is going to resist something that they think doesn’t exist. But a lot more people think we have visitors.

I Dream The Far-Off Watchers Of The Skies

I dream the far-off watchers of the skies
Path of Mercury transiting the Sun

The human discovery of exoplanets, planets orbiting a star other than our sun, is a relatively recent phenomenon. The first exoplanet to be discovered was in 1992. In 2002, an exoplanet was discovered by means of transit. A transit is a phenomenon when a celestial body passes directly between a larger body and an observer. Like Mercury passing in front of the Sun. It makes the Sun seem ever-so-slightly less bright. 3,372 exoplanets have been discovered in this way between 2002 and the present.

I dream the far-off watchers of the skies

Earth Transit Zone, projected on the celestial sphere

In 2021, two astronomers asked a question that stimulated my imagination. They asked, “What stars are in the right position to see the Earth transit the Sun?” These stars must be relatively close to the plane of the Earth’s orbit. They discovered 2,034 stars in what they called the Earth Transit Zone. 117 of them are within 100 light-years or less. 75 of them are close enough to receive radio waves from Earth.

“From the exoplanets’ point of view, we are the aliens”

Lisa Kaltenegger, associate professor of astronomy, Cornell University.

Lisa Kaltenegger and Jackie Faherty were not the first astronomers to contemplate the Earth Transit Zone. But they were the first to consider what stars might be moving into it, or out of it. My teachers never told me that the stars move relative to each other. But they’ve been doing it for a long, long time. The star known as Ross 128 used to be in the Earth Transit Zone, but left it 900 years ago. The star known as Teegarden’s Star will enter the Earth Transit Zone in 29 years.

I found this interesting because the astronomers considered the possibility that humanity is part of a greater community of intelligent life. This is something taught in great detail by the New Message from God.

I dream the far-off watchers of the skies. Suppose a star is in the Earth Transit Zone. If there is a planet orbiting that star, an astronomer on that planet could see the Earth. There’s nothing we could do about that. But we could stop sending probes into interstellar space. We could stop broadcasting everything about ourselves into space. We could be more discreet about our affairs.

What If I Cried Out To Come To This World?

What if I cried out to come to this world?
“If only I could be in this play, I would touch the hearts of the audience!”

The American humorist Dave Barry made this observation as one of the things he learned in 50 years of living.

There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11.

This may be true in Dave Barry’s world, but it is not true in mine. As a student of the New Message from God, a birthday is so much more than a biological event.

What if I cried out to come to this world?

What if I cried out to come to this world?
Step 65 of Steps to Knowledge, the book of spiritual practice of the New Message from God

A person’s birthday is the beginning of efforts toward purpose. Some traditions teach that people are correcting distortions from previous lives. But the New Message from God frames it as the beginning of progressively greater efforts towards a purpose.

Steps to Knowledge, Step 33. I have a mission in my life to fulfill.
Step 33 of Steps to Knowledge

Step 33 of Steps to Knowledge teaches “You have a mission in life to fulfill, a mission that was given you before you came here, a mission that you will review once you have left. It involves the reclamation of Knowledge and the proper engagement with others to bring about specific results in the world.” Therefore, a birthday is a day of contemplating that mission given me before I came here. I do not claim to have recalled that mission. I claim to be preparing to recall that mission.

I mentioned once that I participated in a number of theatrical productions in an earlier season in life. I have this picture in my mind’s eye. The work of preparation for bringing someone to this world could be a little bit like a theatrical audition. Usually a call is made for an audition in a place where actors gather. It is a director’s nightmare for the time of the audition to arrive and no actors show up. But usually some actors show up for various reasons. The actors read from the script, they sing and dance. The director is not only looking for competence, but an inner correspondence. A connection between the role and the actor.

Sometimes there is an abundance of actors, and callback auditions are held to decide between multiple worthy candidates. But at each stage in the process, an actor had to choose to show up. The actor who was cast in a particular role had to choose to show up, possibly multiple times.

What if I cried out to come to this world? To serve its evolution and destiny?

What if I cried out to come to this world? It’s as if they told me there was an opportunity for me to come to this world. To meet certain people and give certain gifts. And meeting these people and giving these gifts would satisfy the deepest longing within me. I can think of times when I have knocked on certain doors in life, figuratively speaking. As I knocked, something within me was crying out, “Oh, if only this door would open to me. If this door opens to me, I promise I will make the most of it.” One of my fellow New Message students expressed this by saying “I have to make an adamant declaration.” I don’t know if this is true or not, but it seems to put me in a position of wanting to be more attentive. That might be important.

Humanity Avoids Self-Destruction For Another Year

Humanity avoids self-destruction for another year
On the eve of the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Greenpeace volunteers fly Peace Doves, bearing messages of peace, “No More Hiroshima”, “Yes to Peace”, “No to Rokkasho” in Japanese and in English, beside the A-Bomb Dome Memorial in Hiroshima.

August 10 is an inadequately celebrated date in my world. It marks 76 years of humanity going without using a nuclear weapon in warfare.

Humanity avoids self-destruction for another year

Humanity avoids self-destruction for another year
Nagasaki today

By “nuclear weapon” I mean either a fission weapon or a fusion weapon. America used fission weapons against Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Nations of the world have only tested fusion weapons, also called thermonuclear weapons or hydrogen bombs. No nation has tested a fusion weapon since November 1, 1952 (No, I don’t believe North Korea). My people have refrained from using our most destructive weapon for almost 69 years. We have gone almost four years since the last nuclear test (September 3, 2017 by North Korea). I have written a number of posts about this happy day herehere and here.

In the song “1999,” the American musician Prince (1958-2016) wrote the lyric:

Mom? Why does everybody have a Bomb?

When I hear this song I think “Stop. Wait. Hold up, Prince.” Everybody doesn’t have a Bomb. There are 9 nations with nuclear weapons. There are over 100 nation without nuclear weapons.

American musician Bob Dylan wrote in the song “With God On Our Side” in 1963:

I’ve learned to hate the Russians
All through my whole life
If another war comes
It’s them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side

And yet, America and Russia have managed to negotiate a reduction in nuclear forces over the years. America and Russia have seemed to recognize the threat of their nuclear arsenals. If America and Russia can work things out, any two nations can work things out.

I take comfort that between 1945 and 1968, the danger of nuclear proliferation was recognized. Effective action was taken to reduce it. Some people say it wasn’t enough. But I shudder to think what the world would be like without the Non-Proliferation Treaty. I shudder to wonder if humanity would still exist without the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The story of this near-miss of self-destruction makes me shudder.

I take comfort that the human family recognized a threat to its survival, and rose to the occasion. Humanity avoids self-destruction for another year. Human civilization faces other threats these days. The New Message from God calls these threats “The Great Waves of Change.Declining resources, environmental degradation, affected climate, and extraterrestrial intervention. There aren’t individuals seeking nuclear weapons. But the behavior of ordinary people seem to be making these new threats worse. Will we notice the threats? Will we respond and prepare? I don’t know. But today, I celebrate humanity’s accomplishment with some okonomiyaki, beloved street food of Hiroshima.

Right Now Someone Is Working To Help The World

Right now someone is working to help the world
Danielle LaPorte, Canadian author

There is an accomplishment that the New Message from God wants from me. I must recognize that humanity is heading for a new world reality, an increasingly difficult world. A world of declining resources, affected climate, environmental degradation, and extraterrestrial intervention. And yet, with all these difficulties, I must also keep my faith in my human family. Even during its reckless, destructive adolescence.

Right now someone is working to help the world

What do I do when I have seemingly impossible sets of constraints to meet? I share a poem. And the poem I am sharing is The Manifesto of Encouragement by Canadian author Danielle LaPorte. It exists in both text and picture form.

The Manifesto Of Encouragement by Danielle LaPorte

Right now: There are Tibetan Buddhist monks in a temple in the Himalayas endlessly reciting mantras for the cessation of your suffering and for the flourishing of your happiness.

Someone you haven’t met yet is already dreaming of adoring you.

Someone is writing a book that you will read in the next two years that will change how you look at life.

Nuns in the Alps are in endless vigil, praying for the Holy Spirit to alight the hearts of all God’s children.

A farmer is looking at his organic crops and whispering “nourish them.”

Someone wants to kiss you, to hold you, to make tea for you.

Someone is willing to lend you money, wants to know what your favorite food is, and treat you to a movie.

Someone in your orbit has something immensely valuable to give you – for free.

Something is being invented this year that will change how your generation lives, communicates, heals and passes on.

The next great song is being rehearsed.

Thousands of people are doing yoga right now intentionally sending light out from their heart chakras and wrapping it around the earth.

Millions of children are assuming that everything is amazing and will always be that way.

Someone is in profound pain, and a few months from now, they’ll be thriving like never before. They just can’t see it from where they’re at.

Someone who is craving to be partnered, to be acknowledged, to ARRIVE, will get precisely what they want – and even more. And because that gift will be so fantastical in its reach and sweetness, it will quite magically alter the memory of angsty longing and render it all “So worth the wait.”

Someone has recently cracked open their joyous, genuine nature because they did the hard work of hauling years of oppression off of their psyche – this luminosity is floating in the ether and is accessible to everyone.

Someone, just this second, wished for world peace, in earnest.

Someone is fighting the fight so that you don’t have to.

Some civil servant is making sure that you get your mail, and your garbage is picked up, that the trains are running on time, and that you are generally safe.

Someone is dedicating their days to protecting your civil liberties and clean drinking water.

Someone is regaining their sanity.

Someone is coming back from the dead.

Someone is genuinely forgiving the seemingly unforgivable.

Someone is curing the incurable.

YOU. ME. SOME. ONE. NOW.

Right now someone is working to help the world. I send them skill and inspiration. They’re going to need it. We’re all going to need it.

You Are Not A Frail And Fragile People

You are not a frail and fragile people

This is the thirteenth post in a series of posts on the revelation “The Great Turning Point for Humanity.” This revelation is a small part of the New Message from God. The first post is here. The previous post is here.

What have we seen before? Humanity has responded to great challenges in the past. There is a great, untapped power within people. It is important for nations to focus on world security as well as national security.

You are not a frail and fragile people

The following is the 79th paragraph of this teaching. I will add my experience of each paragraph in brackets. These are the final paragraphs of this revelation.

So what We are speaking of here today is known to you. It is in your cultures. It is in your history. It is in your blood.

[ I believe they are referring specifically to the previous paragraph. But the entire teaching is giving the details of the great difficulties humanity will face.]

You are not a frail and fragile people, but you have become weak in your luxury and self-indulgence; you have become distracted and confused seeking personal wishes and ambitions.

[ “You” in this case means “humanity.” What if you were asked what you did with your life? Would you like to be able to say “I helped secure human survival and freedom?”]

The great times are upon you, and you must respond. This is a gift of unparalleled value, if you can respond. It will do everything for you that you could not do for yourself. It will do everything for the world that must be done, if enough people can respond.

[ Now they switch to you as an individual. You may not think you are much in the greater scheme of things. But if you can respond to this, it would be a great contribution to the world. If enough people can respond, humanity can succeed, securing its survival and freedom.]

Heaven waits and watches to see who can respond. There is no condemnation here. There is only encouragement. But there is great sobriety over what is occurring, great need and great urgency.

[ What if not enough people respond? This was said in an earlier paragraph: “If humanity cannot respond sufficiently, if enough people cannot respond, then the human family will fall prey to domination by other forces, who are already planting the seeds of dissension amongst you and even within you, within certain people.” I confess that when I heard the words “great sobriety,” I thought to myself “Even the angels are nervous about our prospects.”]

Great change is upon you. It is time to prepare. The preparation is here, it is given, through the Grace of God and through all of God’s Angels and advocates and true servants in the world.

[ You are not a frail and fragile people. But we face great difficulties. You have great, untapped power within you. You can express it if you take the preparation, the Steps to Knowledge. ]

Do We Think Our Visitors Are A Military Threat?

Do we think our visitors are a military threat?
The image from video provided by the Department of Defense labelled Gimbal, from 2015, an unexplained object is seen at center as it is tracked as it soars high along the clouds, traveling against the wind. “There’s a whole fleet of them,” one naval aviator tells another, though only one indistinct object is shown. “It’s rotating.” The U.S. government has been taking a hard look at unidentified flying objects, under orders from Congress, and a report summarizing what officials know is expected to come out in June 2021. (Department of Defense via AP)

Two new recent public opinion polls have been conducted regarding UFOs/UAP. Ipsos conducted the first poll in May of 2021 of 1,000 Canadians. The Pew Research Center conducted the second poll in June of 2021 of 10,000 Americans.

Do we think our visitors are a military threat?

The Ipsos poll asked “Do you believe intelligent life exists somewhere else in the universe?” 65% of the respondents said “Yes.” The Pew Research Center poll asked “Just your best guess, do you think intelligent life exists on other planets?” 65% of the respondents said “Yes.” I consider this consistent with the Gallup Poll survey of June 2019 and the Marist Poll survey of February 2018.

These two surveys are the first surveys I know of where people have been asked if UFOs constitute a military threat. An Ipsos press release for the poll reports:

“Though a majority of Canadians may believe in UFOs, the prevailing attitude toward them is surprisingly laid-back. Fewer than two in ten (17%) say the Canadian government should have a dedicated task force and battle plan in place for a potential alien invasion. Half (51%) say no, and one in three (32%) are unsure. Even among UFO believers, only one in four (25%) think Canada should have a task force and battle plan in place.”

I find the opinions of Canadians and Americans to be remarkably consistent regarding whether UFOs are a military threat. I believe that the small minority consider the seemingly advanced capabilities of UFOs. US Senator Marco Rubio has spoken on this from a national security standpoint

“The minute people hear about it they think, ‘These are little green space aliens.’ I don’t even start from that premise. That’s the wrong way to analyze it in my mind,” Rubio told Fox News Radio.

“The facts are that there are things flying over our military installations. They don’t belong to us. They seem to evidence some technological advancement that we don’t have and have never seen,” he continued. 

The New Message from God teaches what is currently a minority viewpoint on the subject of extraterrestrials.

1) Intelligent extraterrestrial life exists
2) Extraterrestrials are intervening in human affairs today
3) This extraterrestrial intervention is a threat to human freedom

It’s almost as if a pacification program is underway. The 50% of Canadians and Americans who are persuaded that UFO’s do not constitute a military threat might be evidence of this program. Do we think our visitors are a military threat? It would seem that we don’t. But it doesn’t follow that they are here for the benefit of humanity.

Humanity Has Risen To Great Occasions Before

Humanity has risen to great occasions before

This is the twelfth post in a series of posts on the revelation “The Great Turning Point for Humanity.” This revelation is a small part of the New Message from God. The first post is here. The previous post is here.

What have we seen so far? There is a great power within people that is largely untapped. This decade is a pivotal time in human history. A divided humanity faces an extraterrestrial intervention.

Humanity has risen to great occasions before

The following is the 73rd paragraph of this teaching. I will add my experience of each paragraph in brackets.

Whether you believe in God or not, whether you are religious or not, it is all the same. It is a call to action. No religion will save you if you cannot respond to what We speak of here today.

[No country will succeed if their neighbor fails. No religion will succeed if its neighbor fails. No religious observance will change the climate or restore the environment. We must accept responsibility.]

The blessing is with you, but you do not know you are blessed. You are troubled, but you do not know what really troubles you. You are confused because you do not know where you stand and where you are and what is coming over the horizon.

Dead mussels at the waterline in British Columbia, Canada

[I think of the heat dome in Canada, the flooding in Germany, and the recent flooding in China. I remember reading The Great Waves of Change and thinking “This is something that will happen over the next century or so.” But I seem to be mistaken. We seem to be in the middle of the Great Waves of Change. ]

You must be patient. You must be persevering. It is not something you are just going to fix up in a weekend or in a year. It is going to take the rest of your life to do this. But what else would you do with your life in a new world reality?

[I must determine that I will be one of life’s contributors and not one of life’s casualties. It is important that I trust my deepest inclinations. I have to find and follow what I know, what I find self-evident that needs all the love I can give. ]

There will be few luxuries in this new world reality, but there will be great need and great meaning and great purpose and great contribution. That is what will make humanity a powerful and free race in the universe, where freedom is rare.

[Part of the preparation for the future is cultivating the ability to enjoy simple pleasures. Another part might be to make a contribution one day, and make another contribution the next day. You might not believe it, but everyone is here to make a contribution to human survival and freedom. The free races in the universe leave other races alone.]

We give you this and the invitation to explore what We mean and what We are saying. Do not be timid. Do not think you already know the truth, for what you know means nothing in the face of God’s Revelation. Your ideas, your beliefs, your convictions, your strong opinions have nothing to stand upon, but there is a deeper Intelligence within you that will respond to what We say, if you are free enough within yourself to allow this to happen.

[This is the latest revelation of the New Message from God, received on December 31, 2019. There is a possibility that this is the exclamation point of the New Message from God. So much has been said over the past 38 years. What is your experience of this?]

It is a turning point. It is not easy. It is not comfortable. It is not reassuring at the beginning, but humanity has risen to great occasions countless times before in times of great need, great travail, great conflict.

[ I think of great famines, great epidemics, as instances where humanity has risen to great occasions before. I empathize with people who consider the possibility of this, and feel discomfort. We need to become a different kind of people.]

How Much Is Really Necessary?

How much is really necessary?
Melor Sturua (1928-2021), Russian journalist and author

My maternal grandfather used the phrase “walking in high cotton” to describe being in the presence of distinguished individuals. I am thankful to have made the acquaintance of Melor Georgievich Sturua a few years before he left this world in June of 2021. It was just one of those things. An obituary can be found in Izvestia, for which he wrote for many years. Many Russian readers “discovered America” by way of his writing.

How much is really necessary?

There is a particular conversation with him I wish to share. I’m not exactly sure how this came up, but I asked him

“America has 330 million people. India has 1,366 million people. China has 1,398 million people. What will happen if the people of India and China consume as much resources per capita as the people of America?”

He answered without a blink, and without missing a beat.

“It will be the end of humanity.”

How much is really necessary?

I believe this is true. The New Message from God teaches that humanity faces a world of declining resources. The image that is often used is a growing number of people drinking from a slowly shrinking well.

How much is really necessary? Jefim Vogel, a Ph.D student at the University of Leeds, and four other researchers have made an effort to answer that question. Their paper in the journal “Global Environmental Change” is titled “Socio-economic conditions for satisfying human needs at low energy use: An international analysis of social provisioning.” There are efforts in this paper to look at various countries to determine a level of resource consumption that will both mitigate climate change and avoid social revolution.

Some research in this area has already been undertaken. One particular result is the amount of global energy consumption per capita consistent with limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees C. This figure is 27 Gigajoules per person, or 7500 kilowatt-hours. How does this compare with what we are currently using? It’s a lot less.

How much is really necessary? What is the level of certainty on that red line? I don’t know if these results are true or not. But the researchers report that no nation on earth meets the needs of its citizens, and stays under the 27 Gj per capita energy budget. The world as a whole consumes almost three times that figure. All I know is that if the above figure is true, everyone faces difficult choices in the years to come.

What Is The Power Of Knowledge?

This is the eleventh post in a series of posts on the revelation “The Great Turning Point for Humanity.” This revelation is a small part of the New Message from God. The first post is here. The previous post is here.

What have we seen so far? Every nation must seek the security of the world, not just its own security. A united humanity is necessary to resist the extraterrestrial intervention. Humanity must unite to successfully respond to declining resources and changing climate.

What is the power of Knowledge?

The following is the 67th paragraph of this teaching. I will add my experience of each paragraph in brackets.

At the beginning, you will be afraid. We understand. It is natural; it is normal. We are not expecting you to be all knowing and all powerful, but We are asking you to become responsible. You will have to move beyond your fear, and you will, if you proceed.

What is the power of Knowledge?
Step 152 of Steps to Knowledge, the book of spiritual practice of the New Message from God

[ I can imagine that people will be greatly afraid as the Great Waves of Change keep arriving on our shores. There are 12 different steps scattered throughout the 365 steps of Steps to Knowledge that address the subject of fear.]

God has sent a preparation to engage with the power of Knowledge within yourself, presented in such a way that it can be translated throughout the world in the simplest possible terms, but with the greatest depth you can imagine—a preparation sent from God. That has never happened in the world before.

What is the power of Knowledge?

[Steps to Knowledge is that preparation. It has been translated into 18 different languages, and is in progress in 10 additional languages. The readability level of Steps to Knowledge is roughly that of a high school freshman. This has made it relatively easy to translate into the languages of the world.]

Preparations have been created and invented, but something direct from God? God would not respond unless the world and humanity were in great danger.

Step 170 of Steps to Knowledge, the book of spiritual practice of the New Message from God.

[ I do not claim to have even scratched the surface of what Steps to Knowledge offers to people. I hope and believe that my efforts will make it easier for future students to demonstrate the power of Knowledge.]

Nothing else will make you strong. Nothing else will make you whole. Nothing else will make you competent. Nothing else will engage you in meaningful relationships. Nothing else will unite you with others and heal the wounds of Separation between peoples and nations and cultures and religions, but to face these things We speak of here today and to receive a Revelation that is the next great step in God’s preparation for this world, given at a time of the most profound need and difficulty.

Step 234 of Steps to Knowledge, the book of spiritual practice of the New Message from God

[ What is the power of Knowledge? Knowledge will not make you rich, famous or glamorous. It might make you essential, less complex and deeper. Knowledge could inspire you to do something important for the welfare of your world.]

The Messenger will go forth and speak of these things, as he has done before. He will speak to your heart, but he will also speak to your strength. He will reassure you that there is no condemnation in God, no Hell and damnation in God, for that is a human creation.

The Messenger, Marshall Vian Summers, is in plain sight in the world

[ The Messenger is in the world. The Messenger entered the world in the usual way in 1949. The Messenger is the man Marshall Vian Summers. It took a long time before he declared as the Messenger by his Message. Some people will look at world events and believe God is judging the world. But God is only the witness. ]

But you are living in a hellish state, and God’s Plan is to rescue you from this by giving you important things to do in the world—things that are needed, not simply things that would make you feel good in the moment; things that are required; things that will make a real difference.

[ What is the power of Knowledge? The power to look at the world with eyes unclouded by longing, unclouded by terror. It is the ability to respond to inner inspiration instead of social conditioning. A capacity of responding to a situation unhindered by persuasion or discouragement. To do things that will make a real difference. Oh, how I long for this power! I long to be a worthy vessel of Knowledge. ]
