Great change is needed in how governments function, in how people behave and respond. Great change is needed in many organizations and institutions to adaptto a changing set of circumstances in the world.For great waves of change are coming to the world, great environmental changes. You are facing aworld of diminishing resources; a world whose climate has been affected, generating violent andunpredictable weather; a world where economic and political instability are increasing, and there isa growing risk of conflict and war over the remaining resources. Surely, you cannot just hold on toyour preferred way of life, blind in the face of the Great Waves of change.Many people proclaim the need for change, but they want other people to change; they themselvesdo not want to really change. They want to hold on to their privileges and benefits and have moreand lash out at anyone or anything they think will threaten their entitlements and their possessions.There is a clamoring for change, but who will change, and what will change? People who arewealthy want to keep their wealth and have more. People who are not wealthy want wealth, andthey need many practical things. And then, of course, there are vast and ever-growing numbers of  people in the world who cannot even meet the daily requirements of life. They need reliable andsufficient sources of food. They need political stability. They need security. They need ethicalgovernance. The needs are immense and growing. But you must ask yourself: Who will have tochange here? And while you may point the finger at certain people or institutions, if you are reallyhonest in your questioning, you must come down to yourself.You must assess your real needs, the deeper needs within yourself, and contrast them with your  preferences and your desires. If a need is genuine, it stands apart from what you simply want. Thereare primary needs, of course—the need for food, water, shelter, safety and security. There is theneed for true companionship, a need to be engaged with other people in meaningful and productiveways. These are essential needs. They must be met or you cannot function in the world.Then, of course, there is the need for a greater kind of relationship based upon what you are reallyhere to accomplish. And that begins to move you into a higher level of needs—the need of the soul,
 
the need to find the deeper Knowledge that God has placed within you to guide you, to protect youand to lead you to a greater life within the world.There are psychological needs for creativity and productivity, for recognition from others and for honest and productive communication. To meet these needs within yourself,
 you
must change. Youhave basic fundamental needs, you have psychological needs, and then you have the needs of thesoul. To meet these needs, you cannot be what your past has shaped you to be so far. You may wantthe world to change around you, and you may agitate for this, and perhaps your requests aregenuine, but, fundamentally,
 you
must change, or you cannot meet the needs of the body, the needsof the mind and the needs of the soul.You cannot simply demand that the world gives you everything you think you want, for you do noteven really know what you need beyond the basic requirements of life. People say they wantrelationship and marriage, but they are not ready. People say they want to know their true purposein life, but they are not ready. People say they want meaningful work in the world, but they are notready. They have not prepared for this. They cannot have these things being the way they are now;they are not ready. They have not prepared themselves. They have not undergone the real changethat must occur.Many people want and demand change in the world. They see a genuine need for change, but theythemselves are unwilling to change. They are unwilling to re-evaluate their thinking, their behavior,their engagements, their beliefs and their attitudes. And so they agitate for change on the outside, but they themselves will not change. They are as entrenched in their position as the people theyclaim to oppose.So you have conflict in the world by opposing parties that are entrenched in their views. They areunwilling to change. People claim they want peace, and they are working for peace, but you see,they are unwilling to question or relinquish their position that in itself makes peace impossible toachieve.Even to adapt to the Great Waves of change that are coming to the world, you will really have tochange the way you think, what you expect of yourself and others, how you live. Real, fundamentalchange here is required, just to be able to meet the changing circumstances of your life.You may change leadership in your government, but that can only effect change to the degree towhich people are willing to change. Policies can change in governance of the nation, but if peopleare unwilling to change, unwilling to accommodate change, unwilling to go through the difficultyand the transition to a different set of circumstances, well, nothing really significant will happen.And when real progress is made, it is because there is a will to change, there is an ability to changeand people who are involved have to change.So there is a lot of talk about change, but not a lot of real change. To be really responsible here,
 you
must look at
 your 
life and
 your 
beliefs and
 your 
expectations and assumptions, to really see what isgoing to work in the real world, in the world you see today and in the change you see coming over the horizon because it is dishonest to demand change, to expect change, when you yourself are notwilling to change.
 
And to say, “Well, I will change if other people change,” that is dishonest. That is placing theresponsibility beyond yourself. That is dishonest. You have to change even if other people do notchange. That is your commitment.Real change is a change of heart—a change in the way you feel about things; a change in the wayyou see yourself and your life; a change not only in perception, but in what you choose to do as aresult. That is the real change. Otherwise, you are facing a situation where people want to keep whatthey have and have more. And whether their needs are authentic or not, that is their position. Andthey will elect leaders to the land who they think will give them what they want even if it leads thenation to ruin.And any leader who claims that they are a candidate of change really will have to ask people tochange the way they see themselves and have a change of heart. Because that is the level at whichreal change takes place. To merely change one's circumstances—to change where one works or lives, or even to changes one's relationships, does not effect a change of heart. You can be marriedrepeatedly and be the same person with the same expectations, the same issues, the same behaviors,the same judgments against others, the same attitudes against yourself. Here you are going throughgreat effort to change your circumstances, thinking it is going to change your experiencesignificantly, but there may be no change of heart here—a fundamental change in how you seeyourself and others and what you value.Without real change, people are entrenched in their position, they are a slave to their behaviors andtheir conditioning, and they try to get along with others who are entrenched in their positions andwho are enslaved to their beliefs and social conditioning. And that gives you the world you see—aworld of immense personal compromise, a world of immense tension, a world that is undergoingconstant stress and that is casting humanity on a path of self-destruction. Either you will destroyyourselves through escalating conflict, or you will simply use up the world's ability to support you because real change has not happened yet for enough people.Real change happens because a deeper Knowledge within you begins to exert its influence on your daily awareness. Here a deeper mind is connecting with your surface mind, the surface mind beingthe mind that you live with everyday. Somehow, a deeper conscience within you has brokenthrough the barriers and the avoidance to reach you at the surface. You are having deep feelings of regret, deeper thoughts that are shaping and changing your experience of yourself. This is not asocial conscience. This is the conscience that God has placed within you. It is part of a deeper mindwithin you—a mind called Knowledge, a mind that is related to your ability to have profound directexperiences, a mind that will alter the course of your life.When we say you are experiencing a change of heart, it means you are experiencing Knowledgewithin yourself, and you are being impacted by Knowledge within others. This kind of inner recognition is what really gives you the power and the awareness to change your course in life at areal level—not just at the level of appearances, but at a real level. It leads to a deeper evaluation of your thoughts, your beliefs, your attitudes, your behavior and your involvements with others. It isfundamental and it is natural. It is as if you are beginning to experience your real intelligence, your real self.This begins a process where you are no longer a stranger to yourself. You are no longer living at thesurface, according to what society and others expect, according to what you have been taught to
