You may not be in a position to materially or physically stop a disaster, but there is something powerful you can do. You can decide to be consciously your Higher Self. The result is regeneration and wisdom. To become wise, open your mind and heart and embrace the great mysteries. As you awaken to the truth behind life, you link your light with others who have become stepping-stones for consciousness on this planet.
We transform darkness with the power of intention, attention, and love. Social regeneration is accomplished in the mind. We move into action through right motivation and right use. To survive and evolve, we cannot remain in denial pretending that there is nothing that we can do. A Mind with a high ideal will accomplish the heart's desire. Demand truth and live in harmony. If we are to exist on a healthy planet and live together in peace, we must unite our energies. This is true empowerment.
