During the past 45 years I have endeavoured to raise the Consciousness level in the country through strengthening and restoring places of worship and carrying out training for many thousands of young people, but the Consciousness level overall has continued to decline at an alarming rate, to the point where it is obvious that Mankind will destroy itself
I see this happening during the course of this century as has been prophesied, a small part will survive, for them the knowledge of how thing actually are will be important, this knowledge will help them build a sustainable and just World.
This knowledge we seek to gather and sow in the hope that some of those who survive would be familiar with this knowledge and lead in the building of a new World. In the meantime all we can hope for is that a Enlightened Leadership will arise in the World from the Universe that can unify Mankind and lead it to salvation.
