It is hard to deny that we are experiencing the effects of the most confusing time in history…and yes…I venture to even say the most challenging time in history. Everyday we are presented with stories of political, social, economic, and even nature’s unrest. Simultaneously we are also witnessing the most amazing advances in our capacity to create technology and express compassion for one another when disaster strikes. The contrast surfacing in our human experience is shocking to say the least, it leaves us wondering how good and evil can co-exist so intimately in our shared time-space reality. Have we completely lost our grip or could this chaos be the result of a more perfect plan for our species?
Let’s imagine for a moment that what we believe to be chaos is just the effects of some thrill ride at an amusement park. The kind of ride that starts off slow but continuously moves faster and faster and is now travelling at unprecedented speeds. Naturally, our bodies are having a tough time acclimating. The upset in our equilibrium makes everything feel fuzzy and distorted. We might even feel as though the ground is dropping out from under us. Take this picture and apply it to our current state of affairs. Is what we are currently experiencing as a civilization truly chaos or is it the quickening of our human evolution?
Despite our minds being trained to think of time as linear, with a concrete beginning and end, there are many examples that point to the possibility that time is more circular in nature. We have all heard of the saying “history repeats itself” and indeed I believe this to be partially true. Imagine that this loop of peace, struggle, growth…peace, struggle, growth…that we humans appear to trapped in, is not a loop but rather a spiral or more accurately, a funnel. Each go-around on this funnel of time represents a shorter revolution. Each go-around brings its familiar lessons of peace, struggle, and growth to each of us in faster and faster succession. Each go-around is another yet opportunity to bring more knowledge and understanding to the challenges we face as a society but because we are moving increasingly faster the pressure is reaching epic levels of intensity.
Now if time represents the funnel, imagine that humanity represents the object traveling down through the funnel, like a coin collected in one of those coin drop donation funnels. Each coin has a “heads” and “tails” side, right? Let’s say, for this example, those sides represent our human capacity for love and hate.
As this coin picks up speed in the funnel it also rotates between heads and tails. What used to appear a longer, more drawn out expression of these human tendencies, as seen throughout history with eras of progress and strife, are now displaying themselves nanoseconds apart. We were once that coin at the wide opening of that funnel, making a lazy orbit, but we are now nearing the narrow spout where everything is a whirl of motion. In this tight space we are forced to acknowledge and accept both faces of our humanity. We can no longer deny the existence of the duality that exists within each one of us. It is mirrored in our daily lives by what we see in the news. We feel it so intensely.
Scared? Heck yeah, of course we are! We know on some instinctual level that we are nearing the end of that funnel of time. The bottom really is falling out of this ride and we are left only to trust that we are moving to a better place yet to explore. We are being re-birthed and the time we are currently in represents the pains of labor.
So go ahead, pick heads or tails! What side do you want that coin to land on? It is essential right now to choose wisely, learn at last in this eleventh hour to forgive and accept an one another. Let the choice for love be the basis for this new reality we are spinning towards.
