Why are you optimistic about the future of humanity in this time of uncertainty and fear?
Dr. George Catlin: God exists. Spirit will triumph in the end. And we’re actually just coming into a great stretch in human history.
Ninety-five percent of the "fear and uncertainty" is about the U.S. economy and our place in a changing world. Fortunately both will probably (continue to) take a tumble in the near future, and that will have the ultimate effect of helping us redirect our attention back to where it belongs. Right now we’re fixated on the wrong things: primarily wealth and power. It would have been nice if, when we had them in such abundance, we had used them for the common good of all people. Unfortunately, we chose to use them to try to accumulate even more wealth and power for ourselves. That was a big mistake, but maybe a necessary one. Now we will see if we can redirect our energies toward right human relations as we become less powerful and less wealthy. It will be very good for us and the world if we do…and I am confident we will.
What holistic practice is a part of your life to help you maintain health and wellness and to connect with your spiritual Self?
GC: Meditation. I believe there is no greater key – the peace and well-being that lies always within.
What single message do you want to share with us from your heart?
GC: God exists. Spirit will triumph in the end. And we’re about to witness the greatest flowering of the human spirit the world has ever seen. It’s actually already begun.
Today a whole group of fully enlightened individuals – people just like us who have gone before us on the path – are gradually approaching humanity. They will call forth what is best in us, and that is very good indeed. Operating from the highest within ourselves we can and we will solve every problem on the planet. Fifty years from now famine, pollution and war will be relics of the past. I know this is true though years of personal experience. As I just said, it has already begun. The signs are everywhere. In my talk, I’ll show you where to look…and if you’re reading the interviews with Benjamin Creme, you already know a good deal about it.
