Those who went with the flow and conformed had to deal with a great conflict as well by subconsciously betraying their true self. No free ride for anyone. It was a test of character.

Now that we have had that experience it is time for us to move forward into the Aquarian age and explore how we as individuals can learn to cooperate. Over time systems of interaction based on power and coercion will falter or transform. And in contrast systems that are fair and benefit the collective good will become stronger due to attraction. I think there will be more naturalness this time around where we will find ways to be more of who we are while also having more tolerance of others. For the individual it will be a test of generosity. This is my hope anyhow.

Looking one more step ahead, better keep moving and get serious about it too because next in 2000 years or so comes the Capricorn era where I am guessing by that time there will be no more messing around. Think karma on steroids. We will be confronted with the truth. But not so bad really as it will be about expressing ourselves truly. Paradoxically that great limitation will likely lead to great freedom.

Agreed...just really a beautifully stated post. I quite like the level of your perspective here as it takes the high and long view.

Peace & blessings

Thanks. The long view is a kind of refuge for me to make sense of the world. I like the perspective you have shared numerous times about ownership of our actions, circumstances, etc. Though an interesting paradox it is because everything is also shared on many levels.
