我再說一次，你們星球上所需要的是一種「大規模的意識提升轉變」(a massive shift in consciousness)。一種「覺知」上的改變。一種對一切生命的重新尊重，以及一種對「內在與外在一切的相互關連性」的深刻了解。
…我再說一次，你們世界的經濟、政治、社會與宗教體制都是「原始」的。我不會做任何事情來改變它，理由我已說過。在這些事情上，你們必須有自由選擇和自由意志才能體驗我對你們的至高目的——就是去認識你們自己為創造者(to experience My highest goeal for you—which is to know yourself as the Creator)。
不過，你做了一件很好的事。你向我請求忠告(You have come to Me for advice.)。
你們的「文明」已一再地轉向神，求問：「我們哪裡做錯了？」「我們如何可以做得更好？」但你們卻有系統地忽視我的忠告，而我不會因此停止對你們提供忠告。就像好的父母，只要你們問，我就永遠願意提供你們有幫助的觀察(offer a helpful observation)。也像好的父母，即使你們忽視我，我還是願意繼續愛你們。
因此，我正在把事情本是的真實面貌描述給你們聽(describing things as they really are)。而我正在告訴「你們如何可以做得更好」。我用一種讓你們會感到一些氣憤的方式在描述，因為我要引起你們注意。我知道我這目的已達到。
尼爾：要如何才能導致這你在本書中反覆說的「大規模的意識提升轉變」(massive consciousness shift)的發生呢？
你們是忍辱負重的先輩們，是先驅。(You are the forbearers, the harbingers.)
因為有你們。(Because of you.)
I observe that you have the collective arrogance to think they are the best. I see the largest number of you resisting any change or improvement which takes anything away from you—never mind who it might help.
I say again, what is needed on your planet is a massive shift in consciousness. A change in your awareness. A renewed respect for all of life, and a deepened understanding of the interrelatedness of everything.
Neale: Well, You're God. If You don't want things the way they are, why don't You change them?
And so I say again—your world's economic, political, social, and religious systems are primitive. I will do nothing to change that, for the reasons I've given. You must have free choice and free will in these matters in order for you to experience My highest goal for you—which is to know yourself as the Creator.
And so far, after all these thousands of years, this is how far you have evolved—this is what you have created. Does it not make you indignant?
Yet you have done one good thing. You have come to Me for advice.
Repeatedly your “civilization” has turned to God, asking: “Where did we go wrong?” “How can we do better?” The fact that you have systematically ignored My advice on every other occasion does not stop Me from offering it again. Like a good parent, I'm always willing to offer a helpful observation when asked. Also like a good parent, I'm willing to keep loving you if I'm ignored.
So I'm describing things as they really are. And I'm telling you how you can do better. I'm doing so in a way which causes you to feel some indignation because I want to get your attention. I see that I have done so.
Neale: What could cause the kind of massive consciousness shift of which You've spoken now repeatedly in this book?
There is a slow chipping away happening. We are gradually stripping the block of granite which is the human experience of its unwanted excess, as a sculptor chips away to create and reveal the true beauty of the final carving.
You and I, through our work on these books, and a great many others, messengers all. The writers, the artists, the television and movie producers. The musicians, the singers, the actors, the dancers, the teachers, the shamans, the gurus. The politicians, the leaders (yes, there are some very good ones, some very sincere ones), the doctors, the lawyers (yes, there are some very good ones, some very sincere ones!), the moms and dads and grandmas and grandpas in living rooms and kitchens and backyards all over America, and all around the world.
You are the forbearers, the harbingers.
And the consciousness of many people is shifting.
Because of you.
