View from your vantage point
Does nothing appear to be the same? Does much seem different? The weather can’t be predicted leaving us to become comfortable with the uncomfortable. That is just the beginning of a changing world. Changes can be observed in our schools, workplace, doctors’ offices and more. Our thinking is also changing. It is happening on a global level.
Not everyone wakes up and observes the changing world. Not everyone understands that the world is shedding its old skin so a new one can be born. Some people will not go back to old ways and are searching for, discovering, and demanding new possibilities/solutions.
People are waking up in places that might surprise you. For example, a small take-out food place that might be considered a hole in the wall, suddenly stops using plastic plates favoring more environmentally friendly ones that biodegradable.
We are face crises that are physical, emotional, and spiritual. Myths are crumbling around us. Some include:
- Human dominance of over other humans, nature and animals are just a way of life.
- Problems will go away on their own.
- Consumption feeds the soul.
- Some humans are more valuable than others.
- Security comes in the from of monetary currency.
- Freedom is guaranteed.
Is costly and continues to confront humans. We are not the boss.
Growing demand for a $15 an hour minimum wage continues, knowing that this is hardly a living wage.

Distrust, disgust and skepticism grow. Expect to hear about corruption among prominent politicians. People start taking back their power by running for political office, demanding that politicians start working for them, not wealthy corporations. The old male guard is changing. More women are elected to political office at the local, state and national level and are leading the way for change. It will not be a pretty year
Protests are here to stay. Protesters come from all walks of life. Momentum and camaraderie are built here. The number of participants grow.
Two simple words-not good. The question may be “How Soon?” How soon will the economy crash? The economy is barely treading water. Many will have less. Many will learn to live with less. Some good comes out of the ashes of the “horrible.” For some it is a springboard for new ideas and creations. Sometimes people are most creative when their backs are pinned to the wall.
Give yourself the time and energy to invest in your creative talents. During these difficult times, these endeavors can be sources of comfort and personal expression. In fact, your creative talents are calling you to give birth. Connect with that part of YOU!! It contributes to great energy and to the peace on earth that so wants to be born and take over.
