I would like to contribute to this enlightening forum with a New Message for our unprecedented times of great change.
In The Great Waves of Change, Marshall Vian Summers explains the steps you can take to navigate our increasingly turbulent and uncertain times. In the face of such uncertainty, Summers presents a revolutionary new way of knowing—a unique process that can be applied by people everywhere. By understanding the Great Waves and by connecting to a deeper authority within, you can find the strength, courage and inner certainty to adapt and to become a contributor, not a victim, to a rapidly changing world.
A free ebook copy of this book is available at the greatwavesofchange dot org website.
"For you cannot maintain the way you live now. Those rich nations, those wealthy people, those people who have become accustomed to affluence, feeling it is not only a right but an entitlement from God and from life—they must be prepared to change the way they live, to live far more simply, to live far more equitably, for the sharing of the remaining resources will require this.
"The rich will have to take care of the poor, and the poor will have to take care of one another, or failure faces everyone, rich and poor. There will be no winners if human civilization should fail. There will be no supreme nations. There will be no supreme tribe or group or religious body if civilization fails.
"This is the world that you have come to serve. This is the world you have created. These are the circumstances facing you now. You must face them. You must take responsibility that you have played a small part in creating them. You must accept this responsibility without shame, but the responsibility is there nonetheless. For in the face of the Great Waves of change, there is nowhere to run and hide. You cannot simply pack your bags and move to the country or go find someplace to hide while the storm passes over, for this storm will last a long time, and there is nowhere to hide.
"Only Knowledge within you, the deeper intelligence that God has placed within you, will know how to deal with these circumstances and with the immense change that is coming for humanity. Only this deeper Knowledge, this sacred Knowledge, will know how to navigate the difficult times ahead, will know how to sail the troubled waters, for troubled waters there will be.
"Knowledge within you is ready to respond. It is not afraid of the Great Waves. In fact, it has been prepared for them all along, for this is your destiny. You did not come into the world simply to be a consumer, simply to occupy space, simply to further degrade the world and to use up its resources. That is not what has brought you here, and in your heart you know this to be true. But what you know to be true and what you think are not yet the same. And you must then align yourself with Knowledge and learn The Way of Knowledge and take the Steps to Knowledge so that it becomes your guide and counsel.

May the blessings of the Divine Presence be with us all.
