The Story of the World, at this Moment of Intense Change: aka Fearless Reckoning

COVID-19 is the Holy Mother getting our attention, and warning of more to come. It is important to understand the spiritual context in which this is taking place. Human beings have made a mess of their playpen, and it is time for a time out. The brakes on Western Civilization are being applied, and She never does anything half-assed – ever.

Humanity has been running too fast and ruining too much. We know it. Many – actually – have wished for big changes, and She is a master at that art.

The essential matter for the heart’s mind is to be able to understand the whole … the larger context, and find our individual role in this Dramatic Tragic-Comedy. To unfold this understanding could begin anywhere, for all is interconnected. However, since I am a white-privileged, Christian, son of Montana, American citizen, shaman, and professional heretic, I’ll stick to that place from which I see. All readers are urged to rewrite this story, from their individual locus of origin place, making that the “central-axis”.

In the Age of the Trumpster, America began even more to occupy center stage in world events. Up to that time, America was a relatively well organized oligarchy. There were the rich and powerful on the top, and the ordinary folk down on the ground – raising the children, and creating the wealth. Pretty much the model for all “Nation States” – petty and large, conglomerate, dictatorship, or some type of alleged democratic socialism – all are in their decline.

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, … “ William Butler Yeats

Many today see America as an evil empire, given that it spent more on arms than the next 20 failing Nation States combined. USA has the most military based around the world. The American “government” is the owner of two of the newest horrible wars, and producer of too many dangerous drugs and other poisons. China and Russia are in hot pursuit of their own future potential for dominance.

The main false religion of this Age is “scientific materialism” {all is matter, there is no spirit}. Sadly for atheists, and other folk who reject – with a lot of justification – most organized religion, … the logic of the situation, however, is that religion has nothing whatsoever to do with whether or not our existence is something created by Immortals.

Whatever the reader’s view is – obviously I have no doubt – through personal experience, … the Son and the Mother can be found, should we wish. Prodigal children and all that.

There is a social war going on between the multinational soulless corporations and the declining Nation States. The Nation States are losing that war, … for the moment.

The matter at hand is a kind of art, including enchantments and other true legends hidden in fantasy literature. She, … the Holy Mother, has the Whole World in His Hands. We can only go into the future in the right way, if we first recover what the ancients knew. Immortals are real, and such fluff as quantum physics nothing more than a materialist’s wet dream.

Knowledge of the world’s reality requires the union of Science, Art, and Religion. No union, no true and good.

The human being has been mistreating their Mother, the Planet Earth. She recently let ancient powers of Faerie through the Gate of the Atomic explosions, … we call them UFOs. She let the Fae loose among the food-supply-chain – the grains – to sing stories, … at least for those hearts who yearn to know Mystery.

America – the People of Peoples – is the adolescent child of the cultures of the world. The world’s ways of being- that our commerce and arts seem bent on destroying – is Americas own Mother and Father. Like all else, this is the legendary two-edged sword: a lot of promise-dreams wrapped up in too much power over the world.

In the law there is something called an “attractive nuisance”, such as a neighbor with a swimming pool. The kids want to climb the fence. America is a kind of attractive nuisance. Google. Facebook. A life style to die for, especially when where else you are in the world is rapidly decaying into constant violence, and poverty.

Is there any possibility to keep the titans of multinational corporations at bay? Are Nation States a hopeless cause, and the Third Millennium to be characterized by a bizarre combination of savage drug cartels, and corporate lawyers?

Rudolf Steiner, who while no more perfect than the rest of us, had a remarkable mind, and encouraged folks to not assume the world in which we live can find a perfect form. No utopia is on the horizon. Sanity perhaps, but order without chaos is not the nature of Nature, and there is no just cause to act as if any of our social gardens have missed becoming rooted in underworlds of dark decay. The Wild is Her, and has Its place.

Chaos births order. The Pandemic is a Planet-wide manifestation of the purposeful creation of chaos, in order to lay the groundwork for … new order to emerge. Order whose primary reality depends upon human beings managing their own affairs “appropriately”. Mom is watching. Want to avoid climate change? Won’t be done. Not on Her menu.

We have command now of the kitchen of the creation on multiple levels. As individuals, themselves inside social/political structures that are failing. I wrote this about the general shape of the future: https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2019/08/31/the-return-of-the-wild/

Americans are facing an election, and much is at stake. Some fear the Trumpster will use COVID-19 as an excuse to put off that election. Yes, the brakes are on – She’s seen to that – but we still have an arena of moral choices in which to operate.

There is in America, something precious. An action that began: “We the People”, which established for the first time that the citizen was the sovereign. This is a power that has to be exercised. Will the brakes make these choices better or worse?

At the very least, many will have a lot of time to wonder/ponder. Sure, fulfilling basic human needs can get difficult, but only if we forget each other. Alone, we are weak. In our tribe, or pack, we are fierce.

Tribes have stories. New culture can arise. Culture sees past the materialism, and the vanity of too many things. A life stripped down to essentials has been another wish of many. People know we live too fast, want to much, and seem to be losing ourselves in the process.

Okay, She sez, but there’s a price. Grow up! Make the American political system work the way it was meant to work: of the People, by the People, and for the People, … aka: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

We certainly have none of the above, so serious political changes are required.

This coming November, 2020, will show just how much grit the American voter is willing to manifest. Will that Pandemic help or hurt? Honestly, … that is up to us.

She has done what She can. The world is tending toward chaos. The two political parties in America are proving their uselessness. Multinational egregorial (soulless) corporations stalk the world like the Titans of ancient Greek wisdom. Google: “Titans. The Titans were the deities in Greek 0mythology that preceded the Olympians. They were the children of the primordial deities Uranus (heaven) and Gaea (earth). The Titans included Oceanus, Tethys, Hyperion, Theia, Coeus, Phoebe, Cronus, Rhea, Mnemosyne, Themis, Crius and Iapetus.”

If we accept the Mother, then we ought to accept the truth of “principalities and powers”. If we appreciate that primordial Chaos is the Mother, the creating of “order” requires additional invisible immortal entities to take up that task.

Human beings have a role, … Now. The more we are true to ourselves, the more we actually participate in this dance, getting to show our own “moves”. There are no standards. Just our choices. Stop trying to guess or determine the future. Instead, … be here now, and leave the future to the Mystery.
