Measuring the progress, trends and the growth of society

Question: Was the measurement of the global peace index (GPI) influenced by the ascended masters?


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Yes, it was inspired by us, not necessarily that we support everything that is done or the entire methodology, because this of course can be measured in many different ways but it is important to have some way of measuring which countries are more peaceful than others. What is the difference between more peaceful and less peaceful countries? What is it that creates division in a country and makes a country more likely to war with its neighbors?

It is clear that this and many other attempts to measure certain indexes and measure the progress is an important part of the world becoming more aware of what forces drive change and what forces work against change. You have a unique situation in the world today, because you have computer technology that can store amounts of data that could not have been stored earlier and you have the technology that can process large amounts of data. Therefore, you can do things with statistics that were unthinkable 30 or 40 years ago. It is very necessary to use this kind of capacity to look at many aspects of life, many aspects of the evolution of nations and institutions and history and see what are the trends that can be learned.

As we have said, if you look back and see the trends, see beyond the outer actual events, but see the underlying trends, then you can project those trends in the future and see that if nothing changes this is likely to be the result. I’m not saying this is always going to be accurate, but it is important in terms of making people become more aware of what is happening and which direction society is going. Naturally, there is always the possibility that these things can be manipulated, can be misinterpreted like you see in the climate debate. But nevertheless, it is still a necessary part of the growth of the collective consciousness.
