The path ahead: The Evolution of Wisdom

101:4.2 Mankind should understand that we who participate in the revelation of truth are very rigorously limited by the instructions of our superiors. We are not at liberty to anticipate the scientific discoveries of a thousand years. Revelators must act in accordance with the instructions which form a part of the revelation mandate. We see no way of overcoming this difficulty, either now or at any future time. We full well know that, while the historic facts and religious truths of this series of revelatory presentations will stand on the records of the ages to come, within a few short years many of our statements regarding the physical sciences will stand in need of revision in consequence of additional scientific developments and new discoveries. These new developments we even now foresee, but we are forbidden to include such humanly undiscovered facts in the revelatory records. Let it be made clear that revelations are not necessarily inspired. The cosmology of these revelations is not inspired. It is limited by our permission for the co-ordination and sorting of present-day knowledge. While divine or spiritual insight is a gift, human wisdom must evolve.

Times ahead
The morning comes, a day of promise.
A day to build a way that’s honest.
Decisions made most every day
Determine ways to make our way.

Honestly, the day unfolds.
Surprises come to every soul.
Confronting changes as we live
Gives a chance to be receptive.

Learning better ways of living
Can be a method that’s compelling.
To learn and then decide to be
Directs paths towards reality.

Living in the here and now
A skill that’s learned it’s not endowed.
We are forced to live within
Where parameters of time begin.

We find ourselves alive and in
A world of time where things have been.
Experienced by those who went before.
They left good records, so we’re informed.

We know from what they left on record
The lives of kings and lives of shepherds.
Records of how life’s been lived
Can help us all to coexist.

Thank You, Father, the way ahead
Requires that we all use our heads.
Your path is filled with hope and love.
It’s not easy, but we’ll evolve.
