"The world itself will tell you what is coming if you know how to read it and to discern its signs and its messages." 
"The man or woman of Knowledge is watching—watching without coming to fixed conclusions, watching without condemning the world, watching without losing hope, watching without becoming jaded or cynical, watching without blaming leaders or individuals or nations, watching the changing landscapes of the world, looking for the signs that the world is giving to indicate how, where and when the Great Waves will strike." 
"Once an individual can begin to sense that there is a greater presence and a greater intelligence within them and can begin to receive signs and guidance from this intelligence, they have begun the long process in regaining and developing the most fundamental freedom." 
- "You must become aware of situations around the world regarding the availability of food and water.
- You must become aware of changes in climate and its effect upon food production in the world and its effect upon the well-being of people in both urban and rural environments.
- You must be aware of political and economic instability and how it is manifesting in certain places.
- You must be aware of the outbreaks of pandemic illnesses.
- And you must be aware of conflicts that continue to exist and conflicts that may emerge in the future.
When you look at the world, look for these things. Just bear witness to them and see if there are any signs. Not everything you will look at is important. Not everything you look at will be a sign. 
Signs from the world
"The world is giving you signs about what is coming, giving you clues as to what to expect in your environment, in your nation, in your economy and in the more immediate circumstances of your life. Knowledge, the deeper intelligence within you, is also giving you signs, clues and warnings. But you cannot hear Knowledge if your mind is preoccupied, if you are busy all the time racing about with your busy schedule and all of your activities. You might feel certain things. You might have sensations of concern or anxiety. You might have a profound and lucid dream at night. But if you do not give these your attention—to consider them, to investigate them, to ask questions concerning them—then the whole value of your inner guidance is being lost upon you." 
"Before there is a great illness, there are signs. Before there is a great drought, there are signs. Before there is a failure in your activities, there are signs. Before a relationship fails, there are signs. Before any great mistake, there are signs. Yet who is paying attention? Who is looking? Who has the clarity of mind to see these signs and to interpret them in the moment for what they really are and for what they really reveal? If you are not reading the signs of the world, you are not behaving in an intelligent manner. You are not using your intelligence, the greater intelligence that God has given you—not your social conditioning, not your appeasement of other people’s expectations of you, not your constant striving to gain material success or to win approval from others, but the great intelligence that the Creator of all life has given you to see, to know and to act with commitment and certainty. The signs are there. Great Waves are coming to the world, converging upon humanity—environmental degradation, changing climate, the loss of resources, the depletion of the world, the decline of the world and the presence of an Intervention from beyond the world by races who are here to take advantage of a weak and divided humanity. There are so many signs." 
Reading the signs
"Signs are not given to you just for your edification, just for your entertainment, just to arouse alarm or concern. They are given to instruct you and in many cases to move you to certain kinds of action. But you must feel these messages. They cannot be distant little images or fleeting emotions or passing thoughts. You must engage with them more powerfully in order to receive the instruction that they contain." 
Sending the signal
"Heaven is waiting for you to reach out--honestly, deeply. You must send the sign to the Higher Powers that you are ready to have your true life restored, to begin to return to your fundamental relationship with your Source and with the Power of Heaven as it is working within people and through people and throughout the universe." 
Heeding the signs
"Yet who is watching the signs, the signs that Great Waves of change are now coming? Who is paying attention? And for those very few who are, who has the courage and the strength to recognize that this is a calling—a calling for service and contribution; a calling for them to reconsider their lives, their circumstances, their activities and their obligations?" 
People "miss life’s great opportunities. They miss life’s signs. They miss life’s warnings because they cannot look and see with clarity. It is a fundamental problem for each person." 
"Knowledge will provide all of the stimulation and all of the signs you need to make wise decisions and to choose wisely in your relationships. However, if you do not heed these signs and signals, if you do not listen, if you do not follow and if you are not able to respond, then Knowledge will not come and punish you. It will not criticize you. It will not banish you to hell. It will not condemn you, and it will not judge you. Knowledge will allow you to fail. Perhaps then you will come back to it again with greater sincerity, feeling a deeper need." 
"Changes in the world have progressed very far, and yet humanity has not responded. The situation has become critical, and yet people act as if nothing were happening beyond their own personal interests. And as long as they have a job and are free to carry on their pleasurable hobbies, what does it matter? When people think like this, they are headed for catastrophe. They do not see the early warning signs of what is coming. They do not feel the inclinations and the signals from Knowledge. They are unresponsive to themselves and to the world, and they think their discomfort is simply a psychological problem. They pace the floor at night or they cannot sleep well. They have anxiety and think, 'Oh, well, this is just my psychological problem.' And even to the extent that they can experience their response to this movement of the world, they misinterpret it." 
Indications of potential for relationship
"You know when you meet people, they tell you all about themselves right at the beginning. Many of you, after a long relationship ends unhappily, think back and say, 'Well, I saw the signs way back at the beginning. I felt restraint in myself at the beginning.' This is very important.This is why listening is so valuable." 
"The way that a person does things will likely continue, although hopefully it will be for a better purpose. Therefore, be attentive to signs of incompatibility at the outset, particularly in the areas of health, money and spiritual growth. These are very critical areas where your attention is needed."
