OK, so I was off by a few days. (See post pt. 1 prior to this post) It took a bit more than a week to oust Mubarak. But even so, it was an amazing demonstration of the power of ONENESS. The demonstrators were peaceful, patient, focused, determined and surprisingly well organized even though there was no apparent leader. They were acting as one. It was something to behold.
The future remains very uncertain of course, and it may well turn out to be far from perfect. No doubt those who led the French Revolution were just as euphoric for the first few days after the guillotine stopped doing its grizzly work. But France immediately descended into chaos and turmoil which lasted almost a century until Napoleon — another dictator — took over. Egypt remains a military dictatorship and still represents the old ways so it’s hard to be optimistic about what might come next.
That said, I am still of a mind to see this as part of the global ‘breaking down’ process that will precede the ‘break-through’ into the new consciousness we expect to occur around 2012. Perhaps this is how it will happen. Not a single transformation where we make an immediate shift on a certain date, but a series of push/pull events such as we are witnessing now in Egypt and all through the Middle East. People coming together as one to break down all the old physical, mental and spiritual structures that no longer serve, while others resist the change and fight to stay attached to the old paradigm.
And we in America don’t have to look beyond our own shores to see the same thing happening here. We are already in a massive breakdown phase and things are likely to get much worse yet. The only difference is that most Americans, unlike the Egyptians, have yet to wake up to that fact. When we do, perhaps that’s when we shall come together in ONENESS in order to shift our consciousness and change our world.
