Ideas are darn near miraculous.
One time I heard or read that the trends, developments, historical figures, etc are a sort of Rorschach test for the mood of the nation – the example that was given was electing Roosevelt with his polio disability was a reflection of the nation’s subconscious feeling of helplessness, weakness, vulnerability…something on that order. I wish I could remember where I came across that idea so I could cite it properly.
I don’t know if it is true or not…but I often wonder if there isn’t something to it. Look at the technical explosion, computers, social media, wireless technology…all of it together. At the same time this is going on, there is buzz in the etheric / psychic / new age circles about social evolution…our spiritual growth as humans, a planet-wide awakening, and so forth.
We are, for the first time in history, able to reach out and network with like minds, throw a net of light and compassion around the globe in a matter of hours…All the support for red cross after Japan is a perfect example, and if the news is correct…the fledgling democracies in Egypt and so forth too.
As above, so below. Very old wisdom, evidenced with technology.
A friend of mine, Joy, tweeted a very good question a few days ago…reminding us that the cosmos is broadcasting, CNN is on TV….which are we listening to? I’ve thought about it for a while…my answer is BOTH.
If we could learn what we need to learn by just being spiritual and cosmic alone, why would our soul choose come to this beautiful, messy, funky, wonderful planet to begin with?
If we live physical-realm only, the same thing applies…we miss out on the loving, learning, laugher and wonder of the human-on-earth experience.
Without both, validation would be impossible, and learning to trust spirit, intuition, love, magic and all the other wonderful parts of life would be out of reach.
Have you ever had the experience of getting an intuitive impression, sending a question to the ethers, having a doubt about your life path…then something happens that is nothing that science can prove, but is a powerful synchronicity…a little conincidental something that lets you have it right between the eyes with what you most needed to know? A reminder of a loved one while you are channel surfing, or a song that said it is ok to feel what you feel…a client who comes just when you are ready to give up and go back to the soul-sucking darkness of your old career…things like that. If we didn’t connect with spirit, the experiences would be empty. If we didn’t live grounded in the real world, we’d miss the validations.
So am I listening to the echoing whisper of spirit, or am I listening to CNN?
