I may not be the smartest kid in the world, but I know when we are in trouble, and we are in deep trouble now. The adults just do not get it. They think they can solve all our problems the same way they caused them? They have gotten to be kidding!
The politicians think only politics will save us. The business people and economists believe that they hold the keys to a better future. Forget the religious leaders. Their answer is apocalypse: the end of everything and bliss for the faithful followers of the God that wins. The scientists are no better. They think the answers will be found in newborn sciences and technologies. Dream on! Science is only as good as the people who develop it and use it, just like religion, and politics, and everything else.
People are so scared that they are turning to con men and dictators to save them. Boy, do they have a rude awakening coming to them. Just ask the followers of Stalin and Mao. As Peter says, the sleepers are being herded toward the cliffs. The secret rulers of the planet want to eliminate billions of people from the world so that they and their followers can inherit the wealth and technology that they think they created over the past two centuries. What a con!
Peter may be right. We have to change this world one heart at a time. Or, maybe, Roscoe is right. We have to get rid of the people who have caused these problems. Only then will we be able to try something new. The problem is, we have all caused these problems, but some are more responsible than others.
I know violence will not work. The world is a tinder box ready to go up in flames. No –ism or ideology is up to the task, so Peter’s belief in unseen forces working through us maybe our only hope. It sounds irrational but if you’ve seen some of the things I’ve seen with Peter you might think otherwise.
There are so many good things happening and we want to be part of that quiet transformation that is happening in so many areas of human endeavor. That’s the idea behind everything we’re doing. The Tower is our think-tank. Angel Training is the way we will help people get in touch with the spiritual nature of reality and help them to work for the greater good of humanity. The Golden Rule project is the way we will put pressure on those in a position to help or hurt the positive work that is going on all around the planet. It will also help us when the monsters turn their fangs on us. If we have public support behind us, we will be a lot harder to silence.
So, even though I take a rational, logical view on things, I have concluded that we are being guided from a benevolent, unseen Source. Rejection of and resistance to this guidance then is the cause of all our troubles. Since everything has become so interdependent violence will not solve the problems and separating ourselves from the rest of humanity will not yield the desired results, quite to the contrary. Our only hope is aligning ourselves with this unseen force for good, and living our life in accordance with those teachings and principles. There is no other rational choice at this late date.
