future, thoughts change

Flexible Future of Man and Earth

“The future is always polyvalent, changing every single second. Each of its scenarios is accessible to the gaze of the Great Teachers who stand at the helm of our planet, and They Themselves can affect the future, but only when appropriate.

“One thing we can say for sure: The Highest Powers will apply every effort to save Planet Earth, but whether the geographical map will be maintained as we know it today, such a question is entirely within the competence of humanity — after all, it is up to humanity to apply at least 50% of the effort required. And so it is far too early for humanity to relax, and if people do not learn how to control the element of Fire that is manifested within themselves in the first place, then it is all the more difficult to predict consequences for individual countries and continents. And only a pure and loving heart can take on the role of the main transmuter and assimilator of fiery energies —” ~Zinovia Dushkova

Changing Future

I think what Dushcova s saying is that there are always many possible futures. Therefore, predicting the future is difficult. At best, a seer can see the most likely future, but never a certain one. Which is a good thing because if they see disasters, we might be able to change things and prevent them.

If you think about it, very time you make a decision, big or small, you change your future. The change may be miniscule, but there is a change. And when you think of billions of people on Earth making big and small decisions every second, you can understand why seeing the future is a difficult task. The future is not set in stone. It’s more like swirling gasses being blown about by the winds of our thoughts and decisions.

Great Teachers

So how can anyone predict the future then? The answer is that it is possible to know that one possible future event is far more likely than another. For example, we can safely predict that the sun will rise tomorrow as that is far more likely than the alternatives. In many less obvious cases, it takes a special talent to recognize which outcome is most likely.

What Dushkova calls a great teacher, more often called a spiritual master may have that talent. Some of them know things about the future, but keep it to themselves. They do that because sharing the knowledge would be of no benefit to us. In other cases, they may see that a disaster coming if we don’t change our ways. In that case, it is their responsibility to warn people and get them to change. Prophets, of course, also give such warnings, although they may not be spiritual masters themselves.

Saving Planet Earth

Yes, the Highest Powers will be trying to save planet Earth, but only if we agree to it and help. It could happen today if so many people were not actually opposed to it. They may not oppose it consciously, but subconsciously, they don’t want change. But change is happening all the time. Even more change will happen in the future. We need to take hold of it and help make the changes that God wants.

While most of us agree that we need to save the planet, what that means can differ. To most, it means taking care of that natural environment of the planet. That is certainly a good start. We need to learn to work with Nature rather than treating her as an enemy to be conquered. But there is a different kind of saving the planet.

The Earth, the other planets, the entire material universe needs to change. Matter is the result of error, the Great Fall of the Bible. You could think of it allegorically as a cancer in the body of God. Obviously, that is not a good thing. So the cancer needs to be cured. The physical universe must be turned back into spirit. That process has already started. Scientists have noticed changes in the stars and the sun that they are keeping quiet about because they don’t understand what is happening. The spiritual light coming from those altered stars is flowing out and changing the planets, moons, and everything else. It is why we are starting to see a spiritual awakening of humanity. But there is still a long way to go. And many more of us need to become an active part of the process.

Gibran's future vision, soul food, light above

Gibran’s Future Vision is Becoming Reality

“From behind the wall of the Present I heard the hymns of humanity. I heard the sound of the Bells. … Bells moulded in the metal of emotion. …
“From behind the Future I saw multitudes worshiping on the bosom of Nature, their faces turned toward the East and awaiting the inundation of the morning light—the morning of Truth.
“I saw the city in ruins and nothing remained to tell man of the defeat f Ignorance and the triumph of Light.
“I saw the elders seated under the shade of cypress and willow trees, surrounded by youths listening to their tales of former times. …
“I saw friendship strengthened between man and all creatures, and clans of birds, and butterflies. …
“I saw no poverty; neither did I encounter excess. … I found no priest, for conscience had become the high priest. …
“From behind the wall of the present, upon the stage of the coming ages, I saw Beauty as a groom and Spirit as a bride.” ~Kahlil Gibran

Worshiping On the Bosom of Nature

Some might think that Gibran is advising us to worship Nature. He isn’t. Look at the words closely. When you pray in a church building, it doesn’t mean you are worshiping the building. Likewise, worshiping outside, in a natural environment, doesn’t mean it is Nature that you believe to be God.

It is actually an excellent metaphor that Gibran chose. He didn’t just say that the spiritually awakened multitudes of the future would worship in Nature, but upon the bosom of nature. What he is telling us is that they are standing on the hills and mountains, not in the valleys or caves, natural or man-made. He adds that they face the east awaiting the morning light, which he than labels the morning of truth. So he is seeing these future people facing the dawn and taking in light. But not just ordinary light from the physical sun. They are also taking in the spiritual light from the spiritual sun. Only that spiritual light is the light of truth seen on the morning of truth.

Defeat of Ignorance

Gibran’s Future shows a city in ruins and a defeat of ignorance. The city in ruins is symbolic. Cities may or may not be literally left in ruins. What is important is that the rampant materialism they represent will lie in ruins. Already we have people saying that capitalism and materialism are failed concepts. They bring great wealth and synthetic happiness to the few, but hardship to the many.

The realization that materialism is a failure will be part of the end of ignorance. But the most important part of the end of ignorance in Gibran’s Future vision is that awakening of the spirit and soul that reveals real truth and wisdom (Gnosis).

Prepare for the Future

 

“It is our business to prepare, so far as we may, a favorable atmosphere and environment for the children who will make the future; and this environment is not anything mysterious, it is simply ourselves. The men and women who are now coming to maturity, still supple to experience and capable of enthusiastic and disinterested choice—that is, of surrender in the noblest sense—will have great opportunities of influencing those who are younger than themselves. The torch is being offered to them; and it is of vital importance to the unborn future that they should grasp and hand it on, without worrying about whether your fingers are going to get burned. …

“I do not speak here of fantastic dreams about Utopias, or of the colored pictures of the apocalyptic imagination; but of a concrete genuine possibility, at which clear-sighted persons have hinted again and again.” ~Evelyn Underhill

If you say a person standing at an old railroad passenger station, suitcase beside him, waiting for a train when there hasn’t been one on this track for fifty years, you would rightfully question his sanity. Maybe, if he bought the old depot, rebuilt and modernized it, and convinced Amtrak to start going there, it would be fine, but not if he is just standing there at the old station hoping for change.
