Sometimes, I get intuitions on things. Sometimes, I don’t wholly agree with the intuitions that I get. But I listen to them anyway. I give them a fighting chance to get through my discernment.
And so one of the powerful sort of intuitions I had last week involved what the “New Age”—the new Aeon—is, and what it isn’t. And I really didn’t “like” it. But it sort of made sense anyway, even from a non-esoteric point of view.
Basically, I get the impression that some people think the next “Age” is going to be something akin to Burning Man, or this return to like a matriarchal “golden age” where we finally learn to be as “one” with nature and we sort all the recycling correctly.
The next age, or Aeon, is all about EXPANSION. It is about pushing outward, and pushing inward—past all previous boundaries.
Think of this new age as like that of an extremely precocious, hyper-intelligent child. And it just wants to push outward from the cradle, from the playpen, from the play area, out of the house, out of the neighborhood, out of the state, out of the country, etc.
Now: is this Child (and some refer to him as Horus, but that’s an added bit of whimsy we don’t need to necessarily figure into this discussion) going to want to stay on Earth, and worship the Earth, and want to do just “Earth things?”
No. This is an age and an energy that wants to lift right off the planet.
And see, here is where I had my problem with it. Because I, personally, would like to do nothing else but live in nature in some shack in some cozy hamlet and pretty much never leave the town. That’s me. I’d love this nature-based “Golden Age.”
But that’s not this new age we’re entering. Hence: conflict between me and this.
I have problems getting on a fucking airplane. I’m [originally] writing this from a hotel on the 42nd floor and I know I’d feel a hell of a lot better writing this from the 3rd floor. Because I’d be closer to Terra Firma. I’d be closer to Earth, the teat, Mother Earth.
But that is not the energy of this era that is coming.
And it is an impulse that, if not completely dismissive of Earth-based environmental topics, certainly seems somewhat “at odds” with them.
Even a person who seemed to be the absolute icon of the hippie movement, Timothy Leary, recognized this. He wrote:
ATTENTION: DNA has recalled the 1966 Hippy Model to repair structural defects, including a tendency to disregard navigational intelligence at high altitudes and failures in transmission from mechanical-muscular to neuro-electric intelligence.
The first Aeon, of the goddess Isis, was about that attachment and symbiosis with the Earth.
The second Aeon, that of Osiris, was about the “conquest” of the Earth; but still, an attachment to it.
The third Aeon—Horus, “the child”—is about moving beyond Earth completely.
And I don’t know quite how comfortable I feel about that, but I think that’s what it’s going to be.
But I could very well be wrong. Hell, we don’t even have a “solid” on that Big Bang thing yet.
