Well, it is difficult for me to conjecture about specifics, but, on the bigger scale, we know that the Earth has gone trough many cycles. We had our skies periodically bombarded due to the movement of celestial bodies, including the 3600 years cycle of a comet, if I remember correctly, that is now long overdue. There are other celestial cycles that seem to converge approximately in our contemporary day and age.
Then we have the weather cycles. The Earth has also gone through several ice ages followed by periods of "Summer".
Periodic pests and plagues, as well as the beginning and end of civilizations.
Thinking of life itself, it is the perfect reflexion of that. Isn't life a continuous succession of cycles?
I'm thinking that we may be at the end/beginning of another of such cycles. In fact, I think it may have already began and we're right in the middle of it, we just don't notice it because we are, again, in the middle of it. It's a bit like the alien invasion: they're already here, no need for a gigantic spaceship landing in the middle of NY with little green men telling us that they came to take over the world. Why, they took it over long ago!
So, if we are indeed in a transition between cycles, it may be something extremely gradual for the perception of a human being's lifetime, but only a blink of an eye from Earth's perspective. Then perhaps, and if such transition is happening, for little human this transition would only be perceivable 1000 years ahead from now, maybe even much further ahead.
Yet, that in no way opposes nor invalidates the visible acceleration of things such as natural and man made catastrophes. The signs of change are here, the total immensity of that change, however, that is what I'm not sure we'll fully perceive in our lifetimes.
Are you worried? Getting nervous? What is occupying your thoughts most of the time?
Depending on the context. Thinking of how things are spiraling down, I see blood, and more blood. What will happen to those people, those expendable nuisances in the eyes of the PTB, those made of the same flesh, same skin, same bones as me, but that are unfortunate enough to have been born in the middle of a boiling hot cauldron? What of them?.......
What occupies most of my time is Work, being truly present in myself so I can be a transducer of creative and truthful energies. I refuse to die in fear and disconnected of myself.
Something similar for me. My thoughts have been occupied with fighting to become who I want to be, the wish to build up the willpower to carry on and get myself out of my own way so that I can actually DO, and the realization that it isn't tomorrow, it isn't even tonight. The Work happens NOW.
It is...one HELL of a difficult fight.
Finally, even though people seem to carry on with their own lives oblivious to the signs, I see a few changes. LDC 97.3 London radio has been criticizing the government BIG time. Sometimes I even ask myself, will they stay in the air for much longer? The other day they were talking about psychopathy, unfortunately I only caught it at the very end.
Also, I went back home to Portugal for two weeks this August and hearing people talking I realized that it's commonly understood amongst them that the people in power are the enemy. It's as if you don't even need to mention that because "everyone knows" they are the enemy, period. Well, this is, of course, a generalization (some people don't know), but I think that it describes well the general sentiment that has been spreading.
As another example, the other day a famous Portuguese poet reffused a prestiged award because it would be personally awarded by one of our corrupt politicians. In her words: "by someone that is destroying our country".
In the end, yes, people go, or seem to go about their lives as usual, but maybe, just maybe, something is starting to boil inside, something that seems yet to be silent, but how much can one take before one explodes?...
