As We Face the Future - 7

Human beings today are extraordinarily in a hurry. We are witnessing a prodigious acceleration of the rhythm of human and mental evolution; and our modern intellectuals in their fondness for extrapolating present trends into the future announce even more fantastic developments ahead -indeed very near. According to the calculations of some French scientists who founded the new "science," called la prospective, a climactic point is to be reached next century indeed, perhaps significantly, very near the date I have arrived at for the beginning of the Aquarian Age. There may be a kernel of truth in such predictions, but as I stated in earlier chapters, the last twelve years of this century may upset greatly such "scientific" predictions.
      The most important thing is not that one should build precise theories and rigorous systems, valuable as these may be to give us a sense of structural destiny and purpose in the midst of bewildering and seemingly chaotic events. It is to face the future with courage, faith and a quality of "vision" with a deep and unchallengeable intuition of individual destiny, inner stability and peace. We may be able to acquire these through subjective meditation and identification with superior, or "eonic" Minds; but this may be a difficult path for many individuals and it is for them that studies such as this, which attempt to help individuals (and mankind as a whole) to find their place and function in time and space, can be of great value if approached with an open mind unobstructed by past traditions and semantic blockages.
