As 2012 approaches with all the predictions of “the end of the world” what is actually happening is a literal war between two radically different approaches to how human beings organize themselves. We are seeing this played out all around the world right now and in the political battles between the far right and the far left in America.
The hallmark of civilization from the very beginning has always been the pooling of resources to free up time and the natural creativity of members of society. To allow for the care of the young, the sick and the handicaped and the old. Not to do so is the basest level of human existence and the opposite of civilization. The clear message of the far right in America is this: we can no longer afford to take care of the young, the old, the sick and the handicap. That message is one of “rugged individualism” taken to the level of “dog eat dog” and is the natural endgame of corporate thinking capitalism gone wild.
As the progression of the ages switches from Pisces to Aquarius so the basic premise of overall gestalt is changing. The age of Pisces was the age of the Abrahamic religions, most notably Christianity and the advent of Christianity destroyed the Roman empire with the loss of respect of diversity and plunged the Western World into the Dark Ages.
This is a spiritual war. The Abrahamic faiths teach of a father god who sits in judgment of all we do, rigs the game to favour his “chosen” who can do any damn thing they want as long as they eventually repent. It teaches that the world exists only for the exploitation by those chosen people, that those who disagree have no actual rights and if you fail to prosper that is a reflection of the flaws within yourself and you are getting what you deserve.
Goddess consciousness is the exact opposite. It is embodied with the concept that all of us are in this together, that we are to take care of each other and in the supreme irony, we are the keepers of our brothers and keepers. The teachings of Jesus were consistent with Goddess consciousness, the practice of christianity are not. Goddess consciousness is being connected to the earth, the universe and the idea that we are the Divine ourselves, all of us and all around us and that we can aspire to reflect that in our lives and how we interact with the world. It is the basic understanding of ecology, the value of diversity in the world including all the other animals we share our planet with. It is a world view of responsibility rather than a twisted social Darwinism.
America is choosing right now which philosophy will dominate the next phase of it’s history. Which way do you wish to go? Chose wisely.
