Several weeks ago I attended a yoga workshop, led by Arthur Kimurray and hosted by Farmington Hills yoga teacher, Katherine Schaefer. Arthur shared his thoughts on what he called: Our Historical Moment". I call it: WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON OUT THERE? I found his thoughts interesting and wanted to share them with my readers. Some of you will find them true or true enough, and others, not. Some of you will find solace in them, as many (including myself) find the seemingly increased hate, violence, war, greed, deceit and corruption in our world frightening.
1. We are in the midst of an enormous cultural and spiritual awakening.
2. This is a messy and chaotic process as unconscious forces are being stirred up by the accelerating technological change.
3. Each of us has a role to play, a unique piece of the cosmic puzzle known in the depth of our soul.
4. Culture is terrified of the soul and the feminine qualities of wildness and surrender it requires to fully awaken.
5. He then asked: How will you participate in the healing?
