IS THE WORLD GOING CRAZY?
Late 1970'sThe more we look at what is going on in the world today, the more we can say with increasing certainty that something big, something different and something unprecedented is happening. There is a part of us deep inside that "knows" of such things and it seems to be whispering that humanity's supreme moment is upon us.
Can there be any doubt that the winds of change are blowing and that the pace is intensifying and accelerating right before our very eyes?
Perhaps you find yourself asking "What is going on in the world, what's wrong with it, has it lost its way, why does it feel so strange?" Don't feel alone. Many are wondering the same things. And there is good reason for it.
I believe there are few people today who would argue with the observation that we continue to live on a planet that is driven primarily by fear. Looking back into our distant past, we can see that it has been that way for thousands of years. There is no doubt that aggression has been a way of life with our ancestors for a long time. It goes hand in hand with trying to survive in the material world and its influence lingers on in our cellular memories to this very day.
Untold wars, greed, the suppression of the poor and weak, deception by our political and religious leaders, hatred, racial biases, materialistic self-gratification and over-indulgences, the destruction of our planet to feed our greed, the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few, the social injustice all over the planet because of it.
Even western religions, with their twisted concepts of the devil, hell and a God that punishes us have resulted in dogmas and a way of life that that are rooted in fear. All of it is about control. It's coming to an end and the forces of darkness know it.
I believe that aeons ago spirits of the human soul family came to this planet acting on God's behalf to blend Spirit with matter, thus making planet Earth a truly scared place in our universe. Somehow, many of us lost our God-centeredness, succumbed to the influences of the material world and we have been under its spell ever since.
At some point, off-planet forces of darkness encouraged a way of life that would be grounded in excessive ego and fear. The influence of the dark forces continues through today. But, we have not been left alone through those times. And we are finally awakening from our material slumber. We are beginning to remember who we really are and why we came here.
Today, the majority of people believe there is life elsewhere among the stars. This kind of thinking is slowly but surely changing the way we view ourselves as a cosmic family and how we might fit into a universe teeming with intelligent life beyond our own. At the same time, we are being swayed by cosmic cycles, which remind us that there are seasons and ages within the cosmos that bring constant change.
We now find ourselves shifting from the Age of Pisces, which has lasted some 2,160 years, to that of Aquarius, whose birth is taking place as you read these words. In other words, we are in an astrological twilight zone where one age is overlapping with another, where one age is dying and another is being born, where the old and the new will exist side by side for a short period of time.
For a while, it will feel as though we are being pulled in different directions and that our world is strange and confusing. However, with time, the influence of Aquarius will be felt more and more and it will have a profound impact on our future destiny.
During the past 50 years, an incredible wave of spiritual wisdom in the form of channeled information, Native American teachings, Far Eastern ancient insights, UFO sightings, crop circles and other mind- expanding happenings has washed over this planet.
In addition, there has been a spectacular explosion of the information age has combined to awaken the consciousness of humanity and raise its collective awareness in ways never thought possible.
We are leaving an age of fear and giving birth to an age of love and peace. Because of it, there is a sweeping change taking place on this planet today that is affecting everyone, as the final moments of Pisces fade into the past. We are witnessing an incredible event in which all that is based upon fear is crumbling before our very eyes and its demise will bring all of our insecurities to the surface.
At the same time, all that is based upon love will flourish and this new energy will replace any ego-based motives or intentions that we might have. This shift is inevitable and irreversible. There will be those that try to resist its influence. However, no one will be spared from the sweeping changes that go with it.
As with any birth, the Age of Aquarius will come with some pain before the joy and ecstasy sets in. Chaos and confusion will exist in the twilight zone of this Pisces-to-Aquarius, fear-to-love shift. It will last for a while, it will continue to intensify, and it will seem as if the world has truly gone mad.
Today there are two forces crashing head to head with one another at this point in time; the spiritual forces of Love and Light and the material forces of darkness and control. At stake is human destiny. All of it is sandwiched between an age of fear that is dying and a New Age of Love that is birthing.
This is the root cause of all the madness that swirls around us more and more each day, making it appear as if the world is going crazy. I assure you it is not. There is divine perfection in it all. The forces of Love and Light will prevail and Aquarius will indeed be a time of peace and harmony.
What should you do in the interim, while all the madness intensifies over the next 10 years or so? As you awaken spiritually, you will discover that there is a sacred place inside each of us called a "God-Spot." It's a space where you will find your inner peace and your inner strength. It's a place where you feel secure and comforted by the love of your Source, knowing that all is well and that nothing is bigger and stronger than your Oneness with Spirit.
Each of us has our own ways of finding that spot and grounding ourselves within its magical influence. Meditation, music, walks along a stream, being with like-minded souls, avoiding negative influences and energy, yoga, healthy foods, reading your spiritual books, communing with your guides, listening for messages from the spirit world that are constantly sent to us, the love and support of a spiritual mate, and so on are just some of the things you can do to stay in your Spirit-Spot.
Perhaps you will discover, as I have, that when I drift from that sacred place, things don't feel right, nothing seems to work and the world seems as if it is going crazy. When I stay in my spot, all feels well.
"Most humans are living lives of quiet and not-so-quiet desperation. They are frightened and confused. That which they have come to rely on is crumbling. Their world is changing so rapidly that it is becoming impossible for them to pinpoint areas of security."
