"People’s disabilities—their negative imagination and their unhealthy dispositions—will become greatly accentuated during times of stress and change. Times of stress and change bring out the best and the worst in people. Here people will do things that are very damaging to their well-being and to the well-being of others. People will take ridiculous positions in the face of great change. People will attempt to go backwards and to reclaim an earlier time, which now seems much more pleasing than it did before. People will try to relive earlier epics that are long past. People will deny their experience. They will deny the world’s emergence into the Greater Community. They will deny what they know. They will deny their truthful associations. They will blame others for their difficulties. All of this will happen and happen in very intense ways. Why? Because in the face of great change, people are helpless and this brings out their worst tendencies as well as their courage and their ability to be devoted."
