The Human And The Divine
Withhold judgment and criticism. The human way is to judge in haste the action of others, but the divine way is to remain quiet and loving. You are divine as well as human and are here on earth, to learn to manifest divinity.

Chapter 9 – Islands of the Future
As you reorient toward the new way of being in the world, you will be drawn to centers where the vibrational atmosphere is more conducive to a healthy state of function. These centers will represent the focal points around which the organs of Planetary Being will form. They will be, in a sense, islands of the future in a sea of the past. Within their vibrational field, the New Age will blossom and spread organically to cover the Earth. These will be the first beachheads secured by the approaching forces, the points of entry through which the healing energies of transformation will be channeled. All of these centers will work together to prepare the human species for its collective awakening.
Some of these centers will have a specific orientation and emphasis. Others will be more eclectic and universal. But all of those that are truly of the new will be united in the spirit of incoming Life. In each of these centers, whatever the indigenous form happens to be, the presence of conscious Life will provide an environment in which sincere individuals seeking to undergo the psychological process and participate in the work of the Lord, can make whatever adjustments need to be made, becoming firmly grounded in the ways of the Spirit.
Many such places exist at this time. Many more will arise during the remaining decades of this transitional period. By the time the next generation reaches maturity, there will be a widespread network of these islands. It will be commonplace by this time for individuals to pass the whole of their existence within a framework of these communities. The coming age is not to be an extension of the individual attitude. During the process of transition, many will find that it helps to be around others who have made or are making the necessary vibrational adjustments. An environment of understanding enfoldment can greatly accelerate the process.

Living Up To Joshua’s Standard
I’m asked, “Coach Wooden, have you abided by your father’s advice, followed his example, and been true to what he taught?” I can only say that I’ve tried hard to conduct myself in a way that would make him proud. Which means, “No, but I’ve tried.” These words explain it: I’m not what I ought to be; Not what I want to be; Not what I am going to be; But I’m thankful I am not what I used to be. And that’s the truth. Whatever progress I made along the way is due in large part to Dad and his teachings. His was the standard of character I sought to emulate and the standard I aspired to as a teacher and leader.

The American Presidency
Woodrow Wilson and the League of Nations
On June 28th in 1914, a political assassination in Sarajevo set off a chain of events that led to the outbreak of the most costly war ever fought to that date. As more and more young men were sent down into the trenches, influential voices in the United States and Britain began calling for the establishment of a permanent international body to maintain peace in the postwar world. President Woodrow Wilson became a vocal advocate of this concept, and in 1918 he included a sketch of the international body in his 14-point proposal to end the war.
On January 10, 1920, the League of Nations formally comes into being when the Covenant of the League of Nations, ratified by 42 nations in 1919, takes effect.
In 1946, the League of Nations was officially dissolved with the establishment of the United Nations. The United Nations was modeled after the former but with increased international support and extensive machinery to help the new body avoid repeating the League’s failures.
Today the attempt at establishing harmony in the international community continues . . .
