We Have A Lot To Overcome Inside

We have a lot to overcome inside

This is the sixth 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.

UPDATE 06/09/2021: The next post in the series is here.

What have we seen so far? Earlier posts in this series mentioned great changes in climate. The previous post gave further detail of this. The seas will rise and the lands will dry. Not in some distant future, but in this century. The world will become drier, hotter, more difficult to navigate. There will be a large number of climate refugees, leaving areas no longer inhabitable.

We have a lot to overcome inside

The following is the 34th paragraph of this teaching. I will add my experience of each paragraph in brackets.

You do not prepare for this when it is about to occur, for that is too late. You do not respond when you are about to be overtaken, for that is too late. You do not build your house in the sand, on the side of a volcano, or next to a river, for then it is too late.

[They haven’t said exactly how to prepare for this yet. It takes a certain amount of preparation just to contemplate this possibility. Part of this is receiving the preparation that the New Message from God is providing.]

The signs of the world are coming to you every day if you will pay attention. You must not give up or give in to fear or denial or weakness. This is what will make you strong.

[The above image provides some of the signs, most notably temperature change. This is from the paper “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity – A Second Notice.” When I first contemplated these things, all I wanted to do was lie down and curl up into a fetal position. If you are reading these words and experiencing stress, I feel for you. But it is important to eliminate phrases like “We are so screwed” or “We’re doomed” from your conversation. What should you say instead? Perhaps “I will prepare for the difficulties ahead.”]

This is what will unite humanity—the thing that nobody expects, the thing that nobody wants, the thing that nobody believes is possible, the thing that seems inexplicable and new, unlike anything most people have ever experienced—a planetary emergency that does not stop.

[People of every ethnicity, every nationality and every religion will experience these difficulties. It will seem cruel to take any joy in the struggles of any group in one day. It could be your group the next day. There is another New Message teaching called The Global Emergency that elaborates on this.]

You may complain. You may be angry with God. You may blame some other nation, or your government, or your parents. But you were sent into the world to be here at this time. It has your name on it. It is what you are really here to do and to respond to.

[I have complained. I could be angry with God, but God is doing something, sending the New Message. I have blamed. I am working on educating myself regarding climate and resources. I am thinking of myself as a citizen of planet Earth. I am writing these blog posts.]

Though your role may be very specific, though your engagement may be very limited, it must be within this greater reality that We speak of here today.

[Some people are reading these words and thinking that some hero will emerge. But there are going to be a lot of relatively mundane things that will have to be done. And someone who can do those things cheerfully and effectively will be a big help.]

You have to think ahead. You have to overcome your fear and preference and ambivalence and your jaded views and your condemnation of others and your skepticism and your ridiculous ideas about life and yourself.

[ We have to become more noble. We have to stretch ourselves in space and time. Can we think seven generations ahead like the Iriquois tried to do? Overcoming fear, preference, etc is what I was thinking when I wrote, “We have a lot to overcome inside.”]

You have to serve people. You have to accept yourself. All the things that really matter you will have to do, not because it is the easy thing to do or the thing that makes you happy, but because it is the thing that is required.

[ We have a lot to overcome inside. You might have a fleeting happiness if your preferences are indulged. But if you did your small, but necessary part to help humanity rise to the challenge, you would have a deeper, more abiding happiness.]
