Please reconsider your current approach

What have we seen so far? Humanity faces wrenching adjustments, due to a disrupted climate, due to destructive use of a lush, abundant world. This destructive use came from ignoring the deeper intelligence within us. Our political and religious leaders are blind to these adjustments, as they only see the future as more of the past. A few individuals could see the coming danger, but they were rejected by humanity as crackpots. This is the twenty-third paragraph.

“You cannot stop the Great Waves of change. You can mitigate them and their impacts and you can prepare for them, but you cannot stop them now. If people cannot change, based upon their conscience and their vision of the world, then they will have to change in the face of demanding situations and crises. It is a poor way of learning, of course. It is a fool’s education, of course. But the education must happen because humanity must adapt to a world in change, to a declining world.”

Please reconsider your current approach. In earlier portions of this revelation, it is taught that there will be involuntary migration from certain areas of the world, due to changes in the world’s climate. People are going to have to think a little bit less about their particular worlds, and think a little bit more about the entire world. The New Message frequently uses the phrase “a world of declining resources” to describe the world of the future.

“The poorer peoples of the world, what can they do now to prepare? They have no social power, no social mobility. They cannot simply pack up and move to a wealthy nation. They are stuck. They are held in place. So the responsibility lies with the wealthy peoples and the wealthy nations to lead the way. But even in the wealthy nations, there are few who can see. People everywhere, rich or poor, are so often unwilling to reconsider their lives and to change their attitudes and approaches. It is a problem in human development.”

Please reconsider your current approach. Is humanity’s pattern of resource consumption and environmental use sustainable? I have asked this question to people in many walks of life, and the usual answer is “Uh, well, no.” But most people live as if humanity’s pattern of resource consumption and environmental use was sustainable. What will happen when the average person in China, and the average person in India, expects to live like the average person in America, or Europe? There is a vague uneasiness that something is amiss, but no idea as to how to address it.

“The world will become warmer. Lands will open up, but you will not be able to grow much food on them. And violent weather will be a problem everywhere—depleting nations’ resources, creating catastrophes one after another.”

Please reconsider your current approach. You may have to take care of someone who has had to move from the arid regions of the world. Who knows, you may have to move and someone may have to take care of you. How can you strengthen yourself in the face of these possibilities?

“Humanity will have to move to a different kind of equilibrium with life in the future, a different kind of stability in the world. The great question facing you is what will happen between now and then? If people are blind and do not see the Great Waves of change coming over the horizon; if people are unwilling to reconsider their lives, their obligations and their circumstances; if people are unwilling to overlook their cultural and national prejudices and grievances, then humanity is heading towards a great calamity, or series of calamities to be more precise.”

Please reconsider your current approach. I get that anyone who says “Well, we’re [insert your nationality here], and the way we do things is to [insert your nation’s strategy here]” is heading towards a great calamity. Adaptability will be a highly valuable trait in the difficult times ahead. The ability to take pages from the playbooks of other cultures and nations will be important in the days to come. The ethnic and religious enmities that people hold are going to be exposed as an unaffordable luxury.

Please reconsider your current approach. I realize this message has been a message of difficult times ahead. But I hope you will continue to follow this series, because beyond the message of difficulty, there is a remedy being offered. If you’re wondering “What am I supposed to do about all this?” the answer is in the next post.
