The Larger Significance of 'Y2K'

Is there a larger significance to Y2K? If there are computer interruptions, it is reasonable to expect that we may experience disruptions in our daily, physical circumstances. 

The extent of the possible disruptions is unknown. 'Self-reporting' from organizations, and the complexity of the interconnectedness of electronic systems, are two of the factors influencing the elusive nature of being able to predict what will happen. 

But even if Y2K poses no threat whatsoever, the current discussions about it can be viewed as a help, if we see this potential difficulty as a warning or 'red flag,' alerting us to concerns on another level.

Abd-ru-shin, author of In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message, offers the following insights from a lecture written over 60 years ago, titled, 'Symbolism in the Fate of Man'.

'If men were not so entirely absorbed in the necessities and many trivialities of every-day life, but would also pay some attention to and observe more closely both the great and small happenings around them, they would soon come to a new understanding. They would be astonished at themselves, and hardly believe it possible that up till now they could so thoughtlessly have overlooked something so obvious! 'And there is every reason why they should sorrowfully shake their heads at themselves! If they were only a little observant, a whole world of strictly-ordered, living happenings would suddenly reveal itself to them, enabling them clearly to recognize the stern guidance of a higher Hand - - the world of symbolism!' 

Have we been, and will we be, observant enough to recognize and understand these 'strictly ordered, living happenings'? 

We all know the saying, 'As you sow, so shall you reap.' These words express an eternal, unbending Law in Creation that whatever you send out -- be it thought, word, or deed -- will return to you in similar kind. 

This begs the question: What have we sent out into this world through the development and seemingly 'unchecked use' of computer technology, and what will be returned to us as the fulfillment of the great and simple Law of Reciprocal Action?

Each person must explore this question for himself or herself. 

For me, I think of how, in almost every aspect of our daily lives, we have unconditionally embraced technological advancement for the pursuit of earthly things, at the expense of fulfilling our primary purpose on earth: spiritual development. And did we consider how some uses of this advancement might be disharmonious with Nature and the underlying Laws of Creation?

Now that we are on the brink of a new millennium and potential massive change, how will we address our fate? 

It is my hope that we will address it by recognizing the Laws underlying that fate, and by firmly resolving to live by them.
