We are now riding a tide of change, and the quaking of the Materialistic World gives us indications of where that change could be heading. Western culture has built within its collective consciousness a false perspective of life. Our economic materialistic traditions have manifested an outward look upon life, where everything external to us has a value which can be weighed or balanced. With enough time, it was only natural that such an outlook would eventually cause time, pain, suffering and even human life to be perceived in terms of a value which can be weighed or balanced.
This system has proven to be not only ineffective, but completely destructive upon the human spirit and soul. This system, driven by complete greed and the desire for domination has been pushed beyond the threshold of what the population is capable of enduring and supporting. Most people can see this now as the house of cards is collapsing – the flaws are there for all to see. And though the collapse will take a few more years to unfold, whilst there will no doubt be many people in denial of what is occurring, it is now a readily apparent fact; the global power system is breaking apart.
The question then, is not one of panic or fear – but rather a question of opportunity; where do we go from here?
There are a number of scenarios. As the world starts dropping the US Dollar, a new currency will need to take its place – maybe a temporary return to the gold standard. But a new currency is not enough – an entirely new system will need to be built. Will it be one that is centrally controlled, via a European Union, and a North American Union?
Or will we see a different future? An economic collapse will bring with it unimagined problems, and in this there is an opportunity to learn a great lesson; the outward external gaze of western thinking has brought us to this place. This realization will spread across the entire planet, and slowly the trouble and suffering will cause humanity’s gaze to once again turn inwards – and with it we will have all the knowledge we have gained from the past century. If we, as a race chose this path then we will indeed have the potential to build an amazing future.
