The Fourth Way Today

Taking responsibility

This teaching becomes manifest at times of crisis and transition in human history, and many feel that we are at such a point in time now. According to J. G. Bennett, we are at the end of a 2,500 year epoch, and probably at the midpoint of a great cycle. A new idea is entering mankind now, that we must take responsibility for our relation to nature and the biosphere. Externally we can see this in renewed concern for the health of the environment. climate change, interest in green energy, locally-grown food, and sustainability practices, but that is not enough. We each must also develop internal perceptions which allow us to act in synergy with the Higher Intelligences which guide the evolution of humankind and the earth.

You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.

Here are the things that must be considered:

Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know our garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel like they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off toward the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.

See who is there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves!
For the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time of the lonely wolf is over.
Gather yourselves!

Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we have been waiting for.
