Question from Facebook: What you say is scary. There are those who say that pessimistic predictions invoke pessimistic thoughts in people. Is this how we shape our reality?
Answer: I am not trying to scare anyone. I am talking about what we should expect if we don’t actively participate in our evolutionary process that develops under the influence of the ego, and therefore, we have to do something.
We are leading ourselves to doom and destruction, from bad situations to even worse situations. Everyone can see what is happening in the world. I am not a prophet, I am simply pointing out the current situation because I have a remedy for the harmful actions that lead to harmful outcomes. Take this remedy from me and everyone will be better off.
But if we close our eyes and wait for what may come, we will reach a state in which the earth will no bear us anymore and society will annihilate itself.
Question: Wouldn’t people understand what is going on if you didn’t tell us what the future holds and what we should do? Must you tell people what is going to happen?
Answer: When I was a kid and went to school my parents told me: “You should be a good student, don’t be lazy. If you study well, you will be a great man, everyone will respect you, you will make money and will be able to provide for your family. But if you don’t, things will be bad.”
If we don’t speak, nothing will affect people. This is the reason that I have to explain the situation.
Please forgive that if what I say may be a burden and that perhaps I am not saying it in a very polite and pleasant manner, but believe me that I am speaking out of my love for you. I want things to be good for you.
