The Most Precious Time In Modern History
This is the most precious time in modern history, as more and more people are not just believing what they are told. The internet has made this possible. The message to “Know thy self” has got through, and people are waking up. Of course, there is false ‘woking up’, exaggeration, distraction, and fear, but we are seeing through all this, in the same way as we see through ‘political correctness’. Humanity has been manipulated for generations, and there are so many films about War, Dystopia, Viruses, Zombies, Horror, Weapons, Science Fiction … fiction … fiction … Why? It is the age of strife.
This is said to be the Kali Yuga, the Iron Age, the “Age of Strife”. Maybe this is the beginning of the end, and we will start to return to a Golden Age, where everyone realises that they are not a name or a designation, but pure awareness.
Pure awareness is direct seeing, rather than seeing through others’ interpretation.
We can all recognise the Ship of Fools and Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing.
“The Ship of Fools” is an allegory in Plato’s Republic, about a ship with a dysfunctional crew. It alludes to the problems of governing that does not rely on wisdom. Today, it might be thought that this is particularly apt, there being so much ‘democracy’ but so little government that is good, efficient, accountable and lacking in corruption and self-interest.
“But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it. Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. By their fruit, you will recognise them.” – Matthew 7.15
It doesn’t matter what is said,
it’s the effect we should be looking at.
Repeat a thing often enough,
and even a hamster will believe it!
