Does 2022 mark a Time of Transition on an epoch scale? This year seems not just to be shifting through first order change.
This year seems to have all the indicators of second order change.
Are we living through not just a change of season but the transformation into a different era?
While the traditional media report an unremitting litany of change negatives, tragedies, undoings and threats – around the world clusters of humans (from small to medium to large groups) are experimenting with how to human well (better, best …) (see the list and click on what they are doing here).
In scattered seedbeds we are incubating whole new phases of becoming. We seem to be moving from inward-focusing- individual-thriving-beings to outward-focusing – if not outreaching – and collectively emerging swarms of intelligence.
Could this indicate we are maturing from the species stage of competition that brought us to the state, where we finally can open to stages of cooperation and collaboration because the challenges we have created for Earth, biodiversity, climate change, and pandemic have created sufficient dissonance in our life systems that our very survival is at stake?
Dare we recognize that life can be good, optimistic, and even hopeful?
It seems that the people who belong to these enabling practices – even movements – are beginning to notice that we are no longer practicing on our own. Other groups that we can see across the street, across town, in the same bioregion – and even on the other side of the world, resonate with what we are learning, how we are living, and where we are aiming to go.
Is it possible this is not a temporary transition – but one that is gathering enough energy, information and matter to contribute to a quantum shift?
Is our beloved Spaceship Earth – Gaia – waking us up with seeming disasters of climate change, pandemics and war – so that we realize that for the survival of humans and all life, we MUST change?
Is the Sacred Season 2022, the shift-space/time-wave for body, mind, heart and soul to build into a tsunami of epochal change? Are we ready to start the recalibrating learning journey for the next 100 years?
