So are we all in agreement that “Consciousness” is the new term for the concept of God, Source, The Creator, Ancient Aliens... The Infinite Mind at the Center of the Universe that Dreams the Life that is You!
What, too early? :D
Seriously... this planet has gone through a looooong phase of Kali Yuga, which is essentially a time of Godlessness... or Dark Ages (selfishness, greed, war). These cosmological / metaphysical concepts have been in ancient cultural documentation going back to the Indian Puranas / Vedas, even before Jesus Christ.
Basically, we've mostly been living in the Dark for as long as mankind remembers. Many of us aren't yet capable of accepting that there has been a shift in the paradigm... things are getting better... Consciousness is rising as we transition into Dwarpa Yuga, right on schedule!
That said, one doesn’t have to buy into ancient teachings... whatever floats yer boat... but you would be kinda ignorant to outright dismiss cosmic knowledge that has stood the entire recorded history of mankind. Just saying, not everything man has ever written before today is superstitious nonsense. There's a world of people out there who have been trying to come to terms with the existential changes happening in their lives. It's a thing.
See everyone got in a huff over the Mayan calendar and began to feel the "END OF THE WORLD!" might be possible... uncertainty of the time was palpable, people joked, but nobody was actually certain about anything. And of course, nothing happened... or did it?
What the materialist view of the world misread with all that ancient scripture, was that the calendar prophecy pointed to a METAPHYSICAL death of the world... a symbolism of sorts, much like the symbolism of Hermetic Alchemy, a very real practice of spiritual purification very similar to the EVERY YOGA & MEDITATION practice on the planet.. which has come to be a very palpable reality now. So maybe things did change?
Consciousness and Matrix Theory are hot topics these days. Alien disclosure has escalated and is now on people’s list of Presidential Candidate desires. TV shows like Ancient Aliens have evolved into full-blown TV channels like Gaia.com and the Enigma Channel. Not to mention, movies that tell the stories of human beings with super powers are now billion dollar blockbuster affairs, every 6 months for a decade now. What used to be "I Want to Believe" has morphed into "I Have to Believe" and finally into "I Do Believe"... why is that, I wonder?
I mean, Yoga and Meditation are absolutely everywhere now... vegetarianism is on the rise, even among those who would never... Climate Concern and Human Rights are highly protest-able these days... bad actors and shady dealers are being outed and exposed in every public arena... Ayahuasca, DMT and Spiritual Retreats are becoming household phrases... even SCIENCE is beginning to recognize something spiritual is happening in Quantum Physics / Entanglement, while Astronomers are desperate to understand why the BIG BANG is SPEEDING UP!!
It's almost as though people are waking up from their unconscious slumber of ignorance... recognizing the organic Conscious entity that IS their environment... taking the reigns of their own Higher Consciousness!
I'd say that's a very VISIBLE change.
Hell, even middle eastern governments are starting to recognize that excessive conflict isn’t the path anymore. Lebanese citizens are sick of their oppressive regime using state run media to lie to them, even their newscasters are walking off the job in shame and apology. As are many of the US newscasters like Shep Smith and his walkout followers that have also become disillusioned by the brainwash circus. The Hollwood elite are being outed for their lude hypocrisy, with some of the most negative citizens in the world being jailed for their actions. People are no longer tolerating embezzlement, casual racism, bigotry, excessive violence, eco-destruction, etc. Just look around, many of the most famous men in the world aren't White. The entire LGBTQ community are now common themes in entertainment media, treated with the respect they deserve as the human beings they are. Tech companies and Ecologically abusive corporations are being called on the mat for their anti-humanity approach to business. Most people know you ADOPT a pet these days, you don't BUY animals. The list goes on-and-on in every category of Life...
That's the new mindset: It's Cool to Care.
People care more now. That’s the change.
You can see it.
Consciousness has been rising on a global scale, manifesting with increased clarity and from the 60's through 2012... then shit got real, new generations were being born with this Consciousness built-in... and now in 2020 you can finally begin to really see it on the street!
More of the population are beginning to wake up. A larger portion of the world are starting to recognize the meaning of humanity and it’s role on Earth, the intrinsic nature of what Life actually is and how we're symbiotically living inside it.
There’s a new energy on the planet, and while you can’t materialistically see it... you CAN see it in action!
It’s no longer about Soda, folks.
It’s all about Consciousness.
I's the Real Thing, Baby!
