“There are four great tides which will affect you, even as they affect all life on this planet. In your case, however, since you are beginning to tread the path, the effects of these tides will be more apparent than in the case of an ordinary person. I mentioned the tides in one of my books, but I will just go over them again in order to refresh your memory.”
