I don’t know whether you’ve noticed it or not, but we live in a new age. For 6,000 years man lived pretty much as his forefathers did. They rode horses for 6,000 years. They lived in the dark for 6,000 years. They died of terrible plagues, leprosy and other diseases. They lived an average of 30 to 50 years, depending what period they lived in and their living conditions.
Then in 1844 something happened and we started climbing out of the pit of just subsisting and started on the the path to living longer, healthier, better, lighter, faster, with so many more conveniences than out ancestors had! Today we have, electricity, light at the switch of a button, Anaesthetics, computers, cars, buses, trains, airplanes, iron ships, paved roads, submarines, hovercraft, spaceships, telephones, radio, television, internet, vacuum cleaners, ovens, microwaves, televisions, radios, cd players, washing machines, plumbing and the list goes on and on and on! We have so much as compared to our ancestors that we have completely forgotten how they lived their lives and take our loves for granted. But we truly live in an age of miracles as compared to their lives. Because this is the new, a miraculous Age.
So what does this mean overall? It means we are in an age of the unification of mankind from families, tribes, nations into one big family – “the earth is but one country, mankind it’s citizens!”
That is why we were given this new age!
If a man of 200 years ago was bought forward to today, he would be astounded at what we have! Far more so than if we were projected forward 200 years into the future, because that future would be built on what we are doing today, whilst today is not built on what we were doing 200 years ago! Because it is a NEW age.
There has to be a source of all these miraculous things we live with. And there is. Because all good things come from God, through to man. As I like to say, “In the beginning God wanted light and He said “Let there Be light” and created the Sun. In this new age God wanted electric light and He said:”let there Be electric light” and he created Edison!”
All the messengers of the past have predicted this new age. The Budha predicted a date that, when translated into western years, falls in the year 1844. So did the Jews, Krishna and so forth. Muhammed predicted the year 1260. Guess what? The Islamic year of 1260 just happens to be the same year as the Christian year 1844! So that year, 1844, was the year of change, the year of the rebirth of the world! In 1842 the United States patent office recommended that it be shut down as”everything worth inventing, has already been invented!” Lol! Little did they know that in just two years, the number of inventions would start expanding at an exponential rate! The year 1844 is really the year 1 of the new age!
So what are the main changes in this new age. The main one is that we have left the physical age and gone into a two part metaphysical age. The first metaphysical part was the industrial revolution. The second part was the spiritual revolution that manifested in the 1960s. Since then Love and Justice have started growing at an enlarged rate too.
Soon man will no longer be able to ignore the growth rate of the world and will have to come to the conclusion that “we live in a New Age”. With that will come the questions, “what is this new age for?’ and ‘where did it come from?” These are questions not being asked much yet. But over the next 20 years events are going to happen that will bring man to his senses and force these questions to his lips. And when he finds the answers (they are not very hidden, if you want to look) mankind’s consciousness will expand and he will change from the old destructive ways to newer, more peaceful and prosperous ways.
Last year we had the Mayan Calendar “end of the world” scare. All these end of world predictions are not predictions of the physical end of the world, but of the metaphysical transformation of the world into a higher state than the physical state of the past 6,000 years. There is a book called “The 100th Monkey” that points out how a few doing a new habit, and teaching it to others, can change the consciousness of the whole species. The growth pattern goes 1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, 80%! That is why we are encouraged to “Think global, but act local“Local here means “Within yourself“. This is because we are the atoms of the solar system we call “the world”. Note how the atom and the solar system have the same construction of planets around a sun. So it is in real life. We are the cells of the body of the world. If the cells are not healthy, how can the world ever be healthy? It can’t. Simply making the skin look healthy doesn’t make the liver, the heart and the lungs healthy! However making the cells of the body healthy must eventually make the whole body healthy, with a radiant, healthy skin too! That is what all the changing in the world is leading to!
So I encourage you to Find Your Beingness! For therin lays the solution to all the world’s problems! The future of the world literally lays within you, it is in your hands!
Love yourself first, then others, wholly and unconditionally. This is the simple formula for the new age. Only by doing this can we change ourselves and (by extension) the world at large.
good luck in your journey!
