Our world is in cultural and environmental chaos. I do believe however we are living in great times! We are witnessing the beginning of the end of the New World Disorder.
The Age of Aquarius is upon us. With a little bit of luck, Nostradamus may finally be left to rest in peace. Yes, true, the world has gone somewhat mad. But there is also method in all this. The mess we have made is merely a part of our evolutionary process. The frog had to drink up almost half the pond it lives in, before it could leap across it and into the light.
No, we did not get here by accident. It’s all part of the Big Plan, the Blueprint. The philosopher, Gerald Heard, realized this fact many years ago when he speculated on the evolutionary growth of our cultural consciousness and the psychological make-up of modern man.
In Pre-historic times we were obviously, for the most part, primitive and content with our day-to-day existence. We were merely Pre-individuals. There was little awareness of ‘me, myself and I’ and everybody lived together in perfect harmony (most of the time, anyway!).
Of course, this state of affairs had to become really dreary and boring after some time had passed. The humdrum existence of Co-conscious Man must have been remarkably uninspiring, with everyone thinking long the same lines and no new ideas coming to the fore.
The need for adventure, exploration and novelty grew, which made the way clear for Heroic Man to emerge. We began to strive for more. To be bigger, better, stronger.
Thus, Ascetic Man emerged and created the great religions of the world, and in the process destroyed many of his fellow men to promote or protect what he came to believe. Additionally, as a bonus to this newfound sense of destiny, we inherited much guilt, shame and confusion.
But, Humanic Man came to the rescue with the arts and the sciences. The individual escaped the confines of the collective tribe. We pursued logic, rational analysis and subjugation of the subconscious. The collective unconscious was generally dismissed and the spirituality of mankind began to suffer. Meanwhile we moved on to destroying our environment and initiate the collapse of our natural resources.
You and I are now living in the post-individual age of Leptoid Man or what I like to call the age of Indigo Man.
The time has come to reclaim our transcendental values– even if we cannot prove them scientifically! We must realize the urgent need for all of us to leap into a much wider and far more superior level of consciousness. We have reached a new stage in our development and we are set to either become highly-evolved spiritually or face a global tragedy. This is our legacy and our only true destiny.
