A Los Angeles Childhood - 11-11-11, The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius
Thursday, 10 November 2011 15:56

It's coming soon: A chance to join in the changing. Holding on to the old paradigm for healing no longer works. Many people are showing we are ready for a change. Look at the Wall Street sit-ins. Dissatisfied with a system that doesn't work for the 99% of us.

The last time I remember this was when I was in my 30’s. It was HAIR. It was the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius, and our music, our Fashion, our Hair Styles began to show a change. Hippies. Flower Children, free love without realizing that there might be consequences. It was wild freedom no longer caged in the old guard, the way our mothers and fathers grew up. It represented a new freedom whether it was real or in our imagination, we picked it up and ran with it. Danced, picked flowers, celebrated at Woodstock.

Here it is coming around again. Now in different costumes, but the same agenda. We want our power back.

In Santa Fe, there is to be a grand celebration, a spiritual awakening. A friend of mine is having a Shabbat Dinner and a night of celebration. In a world where we sometimes feel there is nothing to hold on to, here is an opportunity to shift, to change consciousness. Do I know what that means? Not really. But I am willing to open my heart and mind to it. I could use a change. The old way that I learned as a child no longer seems to work. Is it because I am in my seventh decade? Maybe.

Will my world shift? Who knows? But ‘what the hay’ as my father would have said, it's worth a try.

So Friday I will leave myself open to experience the possible cosmic magic, without any of our old assists. Without drugs or alcohol. Just to leave myself open to the belief that life can be different in a good way, a positive way.

Will it be difficult to do? Don't know. Will we all succeed? Same answer.

Will you all join with me and be open to the possibility that a large group focusing on a positive change will make a difference? My final thought: What do I have to lose?
