We are entering a time on planet Earth of unprecedented and dramatic change. A new era of human consciousness is currently being ushered in at the now ending of a 26,000 year cycle, called the Great Year. This 26,000 year cycle has been characterized by the Precession of the Equinoxes, and also characterized by the movement of our solar system through the 12 signs of the Zodiac.
The period of transition imminently upon us represents a quantum leap in human consciousness that has been written about in many ancient and sacred texts, and glimpsed by seers throughout time.
The Vedas, some of the most ancient sacred texts, speak of the ongoing cycle of the four Yugas - from the Satya Yuga to the Kali Yuga or Dark Age – with the Kali Yuga being the final epoch now just ended. We follow on now into a new Satya Yuga, or Golden Age of Truth.
Similarly the Hopi, who are believed to be the original inhabitants of the North American continent, speak of ending of the Fourth World, followed now by a transition into the Fifth World.
The Mayan, long regarded as the most accurate and meticulous of time keepers have their calendar ending in December of 2012 - signifying the end of time as we presently know it.
Similarity as expressed within Mesoamerican cosmology, around the time at the end of 2012, is the return of Quetzalcoatl a “Sovereign Plumed Serpent” as the embodiment of an archetypical god form.
The Apocalypse, as mentioned in biblical text, is often talked about in fear based terms of cataclysm and disaster. However the Apocalypse really means “unveiling”, strongly indicating a view into widely expanded vistas and a dramatic shift in the human experience.
A key triggering event in the process of unveiling occurred in 1987, called the Harmonic Convergence. This event characterized an acceleration of change, and a thinning of the “veil” between parallel dimensions. Many ascended masters and beings of light increasingly started to flood the planet with their messages - speaking in terms of a return to Christ Consciousness and entering into 5th Dimensional Consciousness.
The last chapter of the 26.000 year Great Year, was the previous 2160 years called the Age of Pisces, now coming to an end, and all values and assumptions of this previous Age will expire. The Age of Pisces has been heavily characterized by strongly opposing forces - where man has often been at war with himself, and in a state of extreme separation. This dualistic playground - one that we have to realize that we dove in deep to come and experience - is soon to change as we move into to the Age of Aquarius.
There are various people in recent years who have glimpsed into the changes soon to come. Often these flashes of insight are expressed through various forms of inspiration, such as found in the words of a song by Seal, released in 1994.
There's no reason for you to lose your mind,
'Cause I've seen something,
That's gonna change our time.
There's no hurry,
It's gonna come for sure,
'Cause I know that someday,
We're gonna end our war…..
Though perhaps you have the feeling that this world seems to be stuck in a kind of hypnotic repeat pattern, where the same dramas continue to play out. There is an expression “Great Light casts a dark shadow”
. As much as little seems to be changing, or perhaps in some respects getting worse, under the surface a potent renaissance has been birthed - casting a great light - and where the light has temporarily darkened the existing shadows as it rises to its zenith.
Have you also not noticed that there is a growing current of change? And is it not that many of us are starting to see that there is something fundamentally flawed with the way our world works? Notice now old dysfunctional structures are now being brought out into the open for examination, such as financial systems and health care systems. It is being realized more and more that governments for a long time have not held the interests of the people at heart, and have played games of manipulation and control.
However, most importantly the transformation really starts from within – with a waking up and realizing that the world is only an outward projection of what we have decided it should be.
In 1999 a movie called The Matrix was released, becoming one of the most widely talked about movies of all time – and seemed to trigger something deep within the collective psyche. In the movie, the Matrix is a control system of illusory limitation imposed on the inhabitants of the world. The hero Neo and a band of brave hearts made it their quest to break down the Matrix, and to liberate the minds of people.
The movie has numerous layered messages, metaphors and symbolism. Liberation from the Matrix can also be seen as a metaphor of allowing a freeing of something we hold within ourselves, a waking from willful ignorance, a releasing of our shadow self, a releasing of the false ego and the discarding of all that no longer serves us. In committing to and working with this process, this will then bring on the realization that we can truly create any level of existence we desire.
Neo’s words of inspiration when speaking to the Matrix:
I know you are out there
I can feel you now
I can feel you are afraid
You’re afraid of us
You’re afraid of change
I don’t’ know the future
I did not come here to tell you how it is going to end
I came here to tell you how it is going to begin
I am going to hang up this phone and I am going to show these people
what you do not want them to see
I am going to show you them a world without you
A world without rules or control, or borders or boundaries
A world where anything is possible…..
My personal message is to embark on an inner journey to gain clarity, and a deeper understanding of what it is that you need to free yourself from. Apply the word radical to every state of your being:
Radical self awareness
Radical self love, Radical compassion
Radical introspection, Radical responsibility
Radical forgiveness, Radical self forgiveness
At the very core of all of us lies a Divine Being
One that speaks from the stillness
This is the true authentic self
The one that holds great wisdom
And the keys to alchemical transformation
Take the time to tune into this being
And to see yourself for what you truly you are
Against what is illusory and what is projected by the ego
