See Change As An Opportunity........ A Quotation from M.N. Hopkins



See change as an opportunity, rather than as a hardship to bear. You have all bought upon yourselves these natural and unnatural disasters. It is now time to take responsibility and act in a mature and self-reliant manner.

There are those who believe that science or technology will light the way of tomorrow. These are tools that are to be used to gather and store information. So, you can see where there is a great need in your world for the development of Man.

For in our haste to develop new technologies, new devices, new industries in which to develop and manufacture material goods, Man has forgotten to develop his own inner world, his own inner strength and wisdom.

Now, there are so many weak and delusional souls who propose to know the way, but are nothing more than a projection of their own ills out into the world. For Man must begin to develop his emotional balance and think in new ways. No longer a predator and hunter-gatherer of information that is used to produce income and further his own material development at the expense of all other creatures on our planet.


For the time has come for Man to begin to use his mind and imagination to solve his emotional and psychological problems, which are resulting in an outer landscape as scared and distorted as the inner landscape of Man. 

For few will hear the call-few are called and even fewer, accept a new way.

M.N. Hopkins
