Introduction to the EBook Edition of Nations
This book was transmitted from the Ascended Master Hilarion through the mediumship of Maurice B. Cooke. The first edition in 1979 gave a pronouncement regarding the karmic lessons and potential destiny for each of 11 nations. A new edition came out in 1984 with pronouncements regarding 25 nations.
Hilarion refers to the current period of Earth history as the ‘Time of the Nations.’ One can recognize that, within recorded history, this is the longest period in which individual nations have been able to exist without being swallowed by some new empire. This has allowed specific group karma to emerge among the souls who incarnate in a particular nation.
To some, the information in this book may seem somewhat dated. For example, in 1979 and 1984 the world was still entrenched in the Cold War between the Eastern and Western blocks, and Hilarion’s comments may be seen as more relevant to that time frame.
Some of the more dire predictions have, as yet, failed to come true or have manifested in a lessened form. In the Epilogue to this book Hilarion explains how any future prediction is a probability in the present but can always be changed because we have free will. Hilarion explains how, in fact, the best prophet is the false prophet, he whose prophecy has failed to come true. This is because by giving their prophecy they have encouraged individuals to make the necessary changes such that that prophecy no longer needs to take place.
I have traveled, personally, to many of these nations described herein, carrying with me the information in this book in my consciousness, and it has been fascinating to discover the blatant and subtle ways in which Hilarion’s statements have borne out in my own experiences and observations.
In some nations I have sensed how the karmic predictions of Hilarion have lightened. In others they seemed to have darkened. In every nation, however, Hilarion’s insights have shown me kernels of understanding and resonance with the soul and lessons of that nation and the individuals incarnating within it.
For this and all of the insights presented in the Hilarion series of books channeled by Maurice. B. Cooke I am eternally grateful and pray that your own soul may find upliftment, insight and inspiration here as well.
