Times are Changing

As it is often the case, times are changing. We know they change all the time, but often we are not aware of the changes. Now, we are much more aware. The signals seem to be everywhere and they have different meaning according to how we perceive them.

Astrologically Neptune is changing from Aquarius to Pisces, something that happens every 14 years (there is something about the number 7 in cycles. With this change, our dreams and mythologies are influenced and transformed. Whether they are social, economical, religious, or any other kind. Our world seems to be on the brink of a new order. The old seems not to be working, not being capable of holding “things together” and we perceive the limits of political ideology, economical performance, social unrest, a need for something new to come and give new order to our world.

To some the change is geopolitical and it is powers like China, India, Brazil, or similar emerging countries who will be leading the way in a new world. To others change will be determine by the use of energy, for oil is getting scarcer and scarcer. The environment and the ecological Hiroshima we witness is also a key factor propelling the need for change.

But if change is only a slight reform of our present systems, does change really happen or are we facing “more of the same”? A simple variation of the old that should be gone.
More than seeking change and locating it in growing economies, (China, India,...) or in a reform of the financial and work systems, or even in a new ecological relationship with our planet, change should be looked about in a shift in humanity consciousness.

As a dreamer I believe change is brought about when things (whatever “things” may mean), are different, they move (usually forward even if it is two steps forward and one backward or to a side). Change is not that random, it may appear as such only because our point of view is not comprehensive enough. In order for change to be real it has to bring about evolution and evolution has a goal that “guides” change.
Only a growth of human consciousness and awareness will allow us to “see” and participate in the evolution of our world. The new balance of power should not be sought at a particular geographical region, or based upon a specific economical system, or a new ecology. Rather it will come from those that are conscious and aware of change, its meaning, and goals. Regardless of geography, age, gender, or any other label. The change to group consciousness, to inclusion instead of exclusion, to cooperation instead of confrontation or competition. Things will improve when we understand that we are one and all. There is where true change and evolution will come from. It has happen all along human history, but we are just getting better at it! That is the mark of true progress.
So, lets be optimistic, lets share a positive view (not naïve), and try to see a bigger picture. Let's get rid of what is holding us back. Soul searching and contact with our deeper selves is a key factor for action. We need to do our best to be part of the meaningful change that is coming, for it is needed. Has been so since the beginning of humanity.

P.S. “Other times could be better than ours, but these are out times”
F. Nietzsche.
