I’ve been in the spiritual enlightenment game for 25 years now…..a middling amount compared to my parent’s ‘Boomer’ hippy generation of TMers, who have been meditating and seeking far longer.
I liked to think that the Summer of Love 1967 was a great year. I was born in the August of that year. Yet astrologically those of us born around then have had to deal with the Uranus-Pluto conjunction in Virgo….a difficult energy combo to have at birth I’ve been told and from experience agree with.
Ironic whilst the hippies enjoyed their thing with LSD and spliffs whether in fields or student dens us kids and new borns were destined for far more different and maybe difficult experiences such as 1990’s job losses, new wars, no pension plans due to banking crashes and more environmental crises.
Even the free fun stuff was off the menu. Unlike our over sexed hippy forebears we suffered the consequences with AIDs and HIV. The late 80s and early 90’s tv ads on AIDs made sure we were all wearing condoms during sex, giving us a message that having sex was life threatening.
We the X Generation were supposed to ‘save’ the world with our rebelliousness and cynicism, inventiveness, Virgonian practicality and ability to see through the fallacy of never ending economic growth; at the expense of the environment, and improve people’s rights to have a community life and more leisure time rather than working crazy shift work patterns that destroy family life for greedy 1%ers (more like 0.01% ers) aka the corporatocracy globalists.
Ironically many, though not all, of my generation gladly stepped onto the consumerist brainwashing bandwagon. My generation bought into the housing boom with alacrity and greed thus encouraging house prices to go higher and higher. In doing so they have made it difficult for their kids to find decent affordable housing that is not the size of a rabbit hutch.
Yet I cannot realistically compare my folk’s generation to mine each has their pros and cons. Nor slag off my own generation. Each came in with perfect timing. Such is the knowledge gained from spiritual insight and studying astrology. Maybe I am just having a venting day.
As for comparing people’s timing of liberation. I can get fed up and depressed when I play the game of comparison as younger folk go free aka liberated spiritually having done what appears like less leg work. But then there are lifetimes and karma to consider and maybe they earned their peace who knows. Else I’m just a stubborn cus.
Yes I’ll keep my nose down and carry with me what I’ve already realized…..it’s been a hard road but it has been worth it and I’ll carry on and seek the heart rather than the head and avoid mainstream news 🙂
Each of us are liberated eventually at the right time from the Matrix of consensus reality.
‘Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known’
‘The Hobbit’ JRR Tolkein
