I agree with Brad and Lorna's perspectives; when I first started out on the spiritual path I didn't understand this. Over time I did a lot of work on myself and found a clearer connection through to the other side which brought with it the ability to tap into such understandings, such as what is being discussed here.
On a regular basis now I see people in search of hope, in search of being saved, yet there is only one way — that is through going inside ourselves and exploring what makes up our consciousness.
I was so focused on many topics to share via transients that based on change coming which would either bring that hope people expected, or change things so that life would be easier, yet now I'm finding myself much more interested in working on self again, but more so from the perspective of teaching others that that is what they need to do. This makes it hard for me to keep up with running the site, as what was important to me is no longer where I want to invest my time and energy.
The term, "The Event", has never resonated with me and I only use it so that others may relate to the primary terms I use, such as the shift in consciousness and new earth. There have already been a series of events (there will be more), and those events are simply energetic based waves that originate from multiple sources, which go towards changing the frequency of the space we exist in, and this results in changes in consciousness and DNA. It sparks people to wake, it pushes those already awake to gain more clarity around what is going on and how they can continue to expand their consciousness.
I recently mentioned elsewhere on RT that there are layers of truth between here and our source, and those layers have beings that govern over them, whether individuals or collective consciousnesses, but which also include thought form based realities. People can get caught up in such layers, and that may be a religion, a common belief (such as "the event"), a heaven that they thought was the ultimate destination, the new earth (there is so much more beyond this new earth), and a lot more.
Other peoples beliefs should never be our beliefs. We should always form our own and eventually move beyond the limitations of the concept of "belief" so that we are no longer constricted by a concrete barrier that we have built, as the belief we hold could easily change through time and the ongoing expansion of our consciousness. Being in the moment plays a very important role here, as we then accept what comes to us rather than having expectations around what we believe. If we believe something is going to happen, that can actually manifest that situation even when that something may not be the actual construct and reality behind what the belief is based upon.
When we head off on our next expedition, after our time here as a human, everything will shift for us and our understandings will completely change again, that is unless we are struck in certain beliefs as those beliefs can exist on the other side which ends up pulling us into so that we live out a period of time in such constructs of the mind.

book helps to make this point that we can return to our true source if we choose to, however, from my perspective there is a lot more going on, so our return may be temporary.
