The global ego with its reliance on intelligence and logic has well and truly passed its use-by date. It is  giving rise to the global self esteem with its reliance on ethics and unconditional love. You will need to have a flexible belief system to navigate the speed and depth of this change as you’ve left it so late.

The song to accompany this little tale is The Times They Are a-Changin’ by Bob Dylan with the words ‘the loser now, will be later to win’ and ‘the order is rapidly fading, and the first one now, will later be last.’

Simple really!

I strongly suspect The Garden of Eden awaits those on the other side of the Transition Journey.

Good luck to everyone equally and Bon Voyage.
