How will I navigate difficult times?

What have we seen so far? Humanity faces wrenching adjustments due to affected climate and declining resources. Many people in many nations face great disruption of their world. Neither the leaders of the world nor the followers of the world are considering this. The best remedy we have is the man or woman of Knowledge, who observes and acts without attachment to a particular solution. This is the thirty-fourth paragraph.

“The world is changing. You must change with it. You must move with it. You must watch it. Like a ship captain at sea, you must watch the weather and the waves. You must look at the barometer. You must adjust your sails accordingly. You cannot sit back idly and believe that everything will work out fine, for that is only a hope that masks fear and uncertainty, and fear and uncertainty will sink the ship.”

How will I navigate difficult times? I don’t claim to be an expert on this, but declines in barometric pressure in a given location are commonly associated with increased winds. The change in barometric pressure wouldn’t give the direction of the increased winds. Therefore, the captain must be prepared to adjust the sails for a change in wind direction.

“That is why you must have a foundation in Knowledge. God has given you this to be your pilot, to be your guide and to be your compass. Without this, you only have dreams, hopes, wishes and fantasies to base your positive outlook, and none of them will survive the Great Waves of change. You will be disappointed. You will be frustrated. You will be anguished. You will be angry. You will be disappointed, you see, because you had no foundation.”

How will I navigate difficult times? An earlier paragraph described Knowledge as the deeper intelligence that the Creator of all life has placed within each person. On the other hand, it would seem that the captain (you) needs to make active use of his skill and experience. The previous post addressed the danger of building one’s life on the foundation of a preferred outcome.

“Technology will be important, but it will not save humanity. A political system may be preferred over another, but it will not save humanity. Nor will it be shared everywhere sufficiently to produce the cooperation and the assistance that will be required.”

How will I navigate difficult times? Why won’t technology save humanity? Hasn’t it been a two-edged sword? Hasn’t technology given us nuclear weapons and drone warfare? Every political system has succeeded somewhere at some time, and every political system has failed somewhere at some time. We need stronger and better people. We need men and women of Knowledge.

“You must look ahead, with clear eyes, being willing to see whatever is coming over the horizon—without condemning it, without denying it, without drawing immediate conclusions. Like the captain of the ship at sea, you are watching and responding to changing circumstances.”

How will I navigate difficult times? It is as if I need to keep one eye on the outer horizon, and one eye on the inner horizon, the deeper intelligence, Knowledge.
