As Nietzsche said: "Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you."
Although, I think it is a process of understanding these dynamics, and often the things that looked so big in the past were really not as big now looking back, but also remembering, we are seeing things through new eyes of perception, but at the time that is where we were in our personal development (as the planets shift so do we).
I do have some spiritual beliefs on the matter, yet never fixed always learning. We can all speculate but in the end, this touches each one of us to our core; a spiritual divide amongst the country, our homes, our work and our friends.
The bible predicted the end times, people would look for peace and look for it in the old ancient ways. Jesus said, he will not be there, Luke 22:10: He replied, "As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters." Many believe the man Jesus is referring to, carrying a jar of water is the water bearer, The Age of Aquarius, enters 2050 approx. (we are on the cusp of this NEW 2000-year cycle, what a time to be alive).
We can't bring life back to the old ghost towns or pour new wine in old skins (Matt 9:17: "And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the old skins would burst from the pressure, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine is stored in new wineskins so that both are preserved").
Jesus gave us the answer to follow the man carrying a jar of water into the house he enters. What is the spirit of the Age of Aquarius? That is where I believe the answers for peace within will be found.
The patterns are there, and at least for me, my years of looking away, and not facing the abyss is what hurt me the most. So yes, for today, I will stare into the abyss, I am no longer afraid of the darkness, I have already been there and survived, I've gone to the bottom of the ocean with so many, I've heard the earth crying.
It is such a personal, yet predictable journey for so many of us. I think we are exploring it from a new level of freedom which is why the divide hurts all of us. But might be necessary and predicted over 2000 years ago. People need to speak, people need to feel, and people need to believe they have a voice. The floodgates have opened and is a necessary part of the plan. It is not so much about what we are saying, but that we are saying something. Aquarius represents like-minded tribes. We are like children fumbling about with this new energy, we have not learned to use it yet for the good of humanity. We are still healing from the last 2000 years. This won't happen overnight, but it is happening. Every voice, every generation, and every true intention is important in this conversation. We are having a volcano effect now because so much has been repressed for so long. (Pluto in Capricorn is helping us out, Pluto=Volcano, Capricorn=government).
I pray, there will be a day I don't need to look at the darkness. Hopefully, a day, where I won't be so naive to allow it to come so freely into my home and heart. I take responsibility for my part in this, my part in wanting to be validated, in looking for salvation on the outside, I already have all the wisdom and knowledge I need inside of my heart as promised, now to unlock the treasures and trust my intuition which I will no longer quench by trying to obey old conditionings that no longer work, man-made conditions that have nothing to do with the spirit of Jesus or the Age of Pisces, maybe they were a necessary evil for those times. Everything has a shadow side, even the best intentions. Sad to have to realize, at this point that the loving, free, giving, side of me, must be cautious, be alert, and must not turn my back. But I guess, all is fair in love and war. In the end, we will be okay, we will survive as we have done, as we always do...just remember where the answers reside. :))
