This is a dream I had quite a few
years back. Warning ... of a rather disturbing nature, not one easy
to forget. I had had many encouraging, enlightening dreams before this. This
one occurred at a time when I was asking for guidance as to how I
could make best use of my life. It came to me unexpected, and
I am attempting to swim in a crowded, public, swimming pool with little
room to move. On the surrounding deck, persons wildly chase one another,
yelling and screaming. Some fight, and some even run across
the surface of the pool from one side to the other without getting wet. The
heat, the noise, the pushing and shoving become intolerable. I stand up
in the pool, and as loud as I can, bellow "Stop! Either swim
or get out!" I am surprised as it suddenly becomes quiet, and all but a
few exit the park, making it possible for those of us who really want to
swim to do so.
A man walks through the water up to me and looks
straight into my eyes, and states my full name, conveying that he knows me
well. He turns, and I follow him out of the pool. We appear at his huge
rural estate. We tour his large ranch-style brick house, the many
barns, storage and equipment sheds, and the huge acreage. "I
will show you what is going to happen soon,” he states, “sooner than
anyone now thinks possible." He begins describing a large variety
of extreme events which I watch as if I were there among among those undergoing the calamities...
except for the support I receive from his explanations and presence.
This alone provides understanding and assurance required for me not to panic along with them.
states that these events will continue to increase in frequency and
intensity, world-over as I experience ever more destructive and disruptive
conditions, culminating in total chaos, devastation and anarchy. He
explains that by the time this culminating period begins, all social
structures and the sources of supply everyone has come to depend upon,
will no longer exist. This period of total chaos will last for
three-and-one-half-years. The extreme conditions (some
never before seen on earth), the lack of any social order, and the
scarcity of materials, now makes any further preparation impossible. He
straightforwardly states, "Everyone will go insane."
He says there is now only one still-open question. At the end of this three-and-one-half
year period, will any life still remain on the planet?
With certainty he states the answer to this question is totally dependent on whether or
not those of us that understand what is occurring and the possible outcome,
choose to do what they know to do, and can do, to see that as much life
as possible survives this culminating period. If enough do not do enough,
to provide shelter and conditions for life in the midst of all this
travail, there will
be no remaining life left on Earth at the end of this three-and-one-half year
question, he said, is not whether or not these events are going to happen... or
how they can be prevented from occurring. They are all the direct
consequences of human choices and actions, already set in motion. No one
can realistically expect that the complex cause-and-effect chains of
events created by all humans together, not to play out. Just as they now are already
falling out, unavoidable, so will
they continue; increasing in rate and intensity, everywhere on
He explains how all humans, together, have by our choices and actions,
gradually taken upon ourselves the responsibility and fate of all life
on the planet, not only human life. We have made, and continue to make,
what we see occurring around us. In the very same way it is now up to us, in
very human, down-to-earth ways to determine whether or not all life will
become extinct on the planet.
answer to whether life remains at the end of this culminating period,
and with sufficient means to re-establish and sustain and grow again afterward,
he repeatedly emphasizes, is determined by strictly human,
down-to-earth choices. "Will those who know what is occurring, and
the seriousness of the results, chose to do what they know to do, and
can do, to see that life survives? If they do not, the outcome is certain: extinction of all life on the
The answer to this open question, he explained, cannot possibly be known
ahead of time, resting on free, voluntary, strictly human
volition. If adequate conditions for safety and survival for life is in
place and available, the answer will be “Yes”. If not,
He specifies several
attitudes and discernments required to sufficiently prepare for these
otherwise devastating conditions. Without these principles, the correct decisions, the motivation, and
spirit will not be sufficient
to begin and complete the conditions necessary to live through and beyond this period:
is important that these
dire events not be perceived as punishment from God or supernatural beings.
It is not for us to presently judge whether or not another
living being or organism is worthy, or not worthy, of living. If this is attempted,
not enough life will be saved. Rather help save all that can be saved,
not just what we deem worthy of survival.
All humans have participated in creating these events.
The goal is not to just save oneself or one's immediate family, but all
life forms, as many and as much as can be saved, all interdependent for
survival. Assigning blame and guilt can only hamper and dampen the
initiative and good-will required. Without it, failure.
~ The end-result is not only not knowable, it is not Fated,
Predetermined, or Predestined.
To think otherwise destroys motivation. It is we alone who are
determining the results by our efforts. Each individual must recognize
that it is his or her responsibility as to what to do or not do
that creates the future.
~ No super
being or beings and forces will intervene, prevent, or influence
the consequences of our choices.
Consider what occurs now. The process remains the same. Who, or what, is
now causing, preventing, increasing or decreasing suffering and death? Human
beings. By our choices and actions. Assuming
or hoping other persons, or beings, will step in and save life on earth
certainly change the final outcome. What is required for survival will
not happen unless we ourselves do it.
He explains why he has not
spoken about what needs to be done, or how to do it.
This too, he states, is an issue of human choice and volition, according
to each individual's powers of discernment and talent, not according to
someone else or from outside one’s own being. Just thinking about it,
is not enough, but choosing what to do, and doing it according to ones
choice, knowledge, experience and ability.
He takes me
to a room where a small group of persons stand together, talking, then
turns and leaves. By this time I am thoroughly shaken, feeling
at total loss as to what I could possibly say or contribute. They all
turn to me, and I timidly state, “I am Gerald Alan Brittell”. There
are snickers, and someone says, “Oh no you're not, you are ____
_______”, a man at the time whom I have somewhat adopted as a guru.
When I hear the laughter, I understand
I myself have yet few ideas, and goals of my own ... I am not
yet ‘my own man’, as the saying goes.
I had this
dream/vision 40 + years ago. I have tried my best not to add nor leave
out anything I remember in this telling.
Fortunate for my own sanity, a short time after awakening I had
little recall of the details of the many dire events which I saw
occurring in the dream. I do however remember more clearly what it was that

that vivid and convincing. It has
given me a more receptive eye for what is required for survival, and a
continuing search for possible alternative ways we humans might be able to survive without
dependence on our present very vulnerable sources of supply and
I want to hear and see what others are hearing, seeing and doing,
concerning these times. Please feel free to contact me if you are so
inclined with any question or comments.
