Perhaps the most startling assertion of my new book , however , is not about current human behaviors , but the behaviors of extraterrestrial beings-who I am convinced not only exist , but are actively working to help the people of Earth grow in their understanding .
My book includes a list of what I believe are sixteen crucial differences in behavior between what I describe as “ Highly Evolved Beings living in an awakened state ” and those human beings who are not .
I understand that such an assertion will meet with skepticism at best , and derision in some quarters for sure . Still , I think most people now accept that we are not alone in the cosmos , and most would be comforted to know that benevolent beings are seeking to help us move forward in our evolutionary process .
Yet if such beings are helping , one might ask , why is our planet now facing crisis after crisis , with terrorism destroying lives , economic dreams being shattered , and unpredictable political upheaval emerging everywhere ?
In my view , the fact that these conditions exist make this the perfect time for our advancement . They comprise the storm before the calm , their severity serving to shake humanity from its complacency , awakening us to what now urgently needs to be done if we are to keep the promise of our potential .
I was told all of this in my latest conversations with God , a communication with the Divine that I believe all people are having all the time . Most people are simply calling it something else . A moment of inspiration , perhaps . A sudden insight . A wonderful or brilliant idea . An intuitive sense . Some have even labeled such moments an epiphany .
People will call it whatever they have to call it to get away with sharing their experience without having to claim that God spoke to them , or that Divine revelations had anything to do with it .
Whatever words we use , we are talking here about the expansion of awareness that arises from the place of highest wisdom within all of us . It is the daring vision of Galileo , the incisive clarity of Socrates , the expansive understanding of Simone de Beauvoir , the intellectual bravery of Gertrude Stein , the pure genius of Madam Curie and Albert Einstein that resides within everyone , awaiting our access and our use .
Book 4 in the Conversations with God series contains an invitation to human beings to choose to be among those who commit to moving forward their own individual and personal evolution by embracing and demonstrating behaviors that serve to awaken the species to who and what human beings really are ( Individuations of Divinity ), and how that may be made manifest in daily experience .
