“It’s so interesting to watch the way in which the world works. Many years ago, in 1989, in a little suburb out of Frankford, Germany, I wrote the first book in Human Design. It was called The Human Design System. It was subtitled A Manual for No-fault Living. Somehow over the years that subtitle disappeared. But it was really at the heart and core of the value of understanding this knowledge. It is that in understanding this knowledge, it is not about fault and blame. This is not about the blame game.
When I look out at this phenomenon and see the way it’s commented on, see the way it enrages certain people and certain causes and how quick everyone is to jump in and to make accusations of this and that and the other thing. It’s astonishing to me. This is a choiceless life, it truly is. Anybody who has followed my Global Cycles teaching over the last 15 years will know that I have predicted the collapse of institutions. It’s not me predicting it; it’s just simply obvious in the way in which the global mechanisms work. That collapse is a natural thing. That is, we are coming to the edge of the impact of the Cross of Planning on our lives as a global cycle.
We’ve had hundreds of years of this. Hundreds of years of seeing the development of institutions; and the development of institutions to look after the needs of large expanded communities. Everything about the 40/37 is rooted in this inherent bargain with the community to provide the community for its infrastructure, its needs, support it, police it, all the things that are part of the Cross of Planning. Well, it’s collapsing. It’s not collapsing because of people. It’s not falling apart because people in positions of power today do not know how to use that power or in ineffective in it.
The system is breaking down not because there is something wrong with the system; its time is coming to an end. It just is.
So many of the beings that are involved deeply with institutions worldwide live in an illusion of its perfectibility because that’s what we’ve been dealing with for 400 years. We’ve been dealing with the process of trying to perfect the institutions. But we’re coming to a time where the institutions don’t matter. Where there is no global imprint that focuses humanity on this as an underlying structure. We’re headed into a cycle where, in fact, “everyone is for themselves” to one degree or another.
The pressure is on for the transformation of the consciousness. It all comes together. It’s not like it’s all dark and evil and it’s going to be bad. But, the thing that’s important for everyone to take in at this point in dealing with what will be the continuing collapse of institutions to be able to perfect their process; to truly be able to serve humanity is that you have to see that it’s not about turning your face towards a not-self collective, it’s about turning inward. This is all about this movement away from collective authority to personal authority.
What you’re seeing is the breakdown of collective authority to really be something that can truly be trusted. It can’t. And not because they are untrustworthy, not because they are lying or scheming or all these things-human beings do all of this stuff. It can’t be trusted because it is a dying theme. It’s like holding onto a sinking ship.
Human Design is about the potential of every individual; individual, not a mass. Human Design is not an institutional constructed movement. It’s one person at a time. It’s one person at a time not abandoning anything, but discovering within themselves their authority. If there is any great lesson out there, it is that what to do in time of threat is not to turn on your TV, your radio, or your computer to look for advice from somewhere out there. It’s to trust within yourself to know clearly within yourself that there is an authority within you that is going to guide you no matter what.
Everything about this knowledge is about stripping away the dependency on those who have no right to control you, condition you unless that is precisely what is correct for you and only you can decide. When you look out in this world and you look around and you see what’s going on and you see the dilemma that we have with all the various things that have been emerging over the last 20, 30 years, I want you to grasp something. There is no cure for these things. There is no supra-government great leader that’s suddenly going to step up to the plate and fix it all, because it’s not fixable. It’s just falling apart.
It means that each and every one of you have to look within yourself, and have to see therein lies what is correct for you; your authority, your capacity to be able to live correctly in this life regardless of the circumstances that are around you. Oh, how easy it is for the not-self to be a victim. The world is filled with victims. And they blame the institutions. Well, soon there will nothing left, in that sense, to blame.
These are unusual times; we get to live on the cusp of a great change in the way in which the world works. And any time in the history of humanity that you come to these cusp points, there are all kinds of disarray that arises all around it. It’s a change. There is a deep and profound mutative force that is at work on this planet. So let’s leave the blame game behind, and let’s enter into what is the only thing that will allow us to survive in the next cycle-the honoring of individual authority. Follow your strategy, honor your inner authority, operate correctly within yourself and you will live as you should in this life. That is the point.
There is no one you can depend on. There is no one you can rely on. And truly, there is no one you can trust but yourself. And when you’re correct and you’re operating correctly, that trust in yourself is your armor for this life. It will protect you; it will guide you because it’s precisely what you are here for. And we are the ones, our generation, who stand at the edge of this precipice. We are the ones that are here to demonstrate the correctness of the way, so that we can enter into this new age. That us, our children, that those beings that we have contact with, can enter into this new cycle properly equipped.”
