The eschaton alarm keeps buzzing in our ear and we keep punching the snooze button. Not to worry, things are moving along more quickly than we realize, and we seem to be more or less on track.
To any change there is resistance. To fundamental change there is simply denial. Denial is the only way to resist the inevitable. Those of us who do not mind anticipating big things are given a full measure of time to savor the drama.
We are coming close to the point where we can begin to coast. Our common objective will begin to supplant our individual struggles for mere survival, and this will happen without benefit of legislation.
Many of these changes have occurred subliminally, but they are now coming to the surface, especially for those who care to observe.
The saving of the world was accomplished two millennia ago, but only now can we begin to understand how that was managed.
The light at the end of the tunnel is seen in the form of an expanding consciousness of the deep connectivity of the world. Aspects of the world will continue to disintegrate, but the light we see will be the primary force by which we can minimize the suffering. Most of the suffering will be felt in the letting go of the darkness. The light seeping in through the cracks of our old reality can only seem confusing and threatening at first.
It has been said that the modern era spanned the time from the storming of the Bastille walls to the storming of the Berlin wall. Like for those confused prisoners of the Bastille, it is easier for us to see the threat than the promise in the sudden glare as we stumble through the debris of the old order.
The task of building a glass palace from the rocky debris of a prison is likely to be incomprehensible to those who were so recently incarcerated. That is our challenge and our most precious destiny.
Ninety percent of the reconstruction
will be done in our hearts and minds. That will be the most difficult
task. Once we have made up our hearts and minds, the actual work
will just be a recreation. The fields will still be planted and harvested
as through the eons, but the burdens will dissolve into the greater understanding
of how everything has always worked together. There will be nothing
glib about this understanding. It will utterly transport our densest
selves. It will utterly reshape reality.
