You know, I believe many of us are in a great deal of pain. Not for the same reasons or stemming from the same causes, to be sure. But the connections among us means we affect each others' vibration. The soul-level groaning evident in our disparate frustrations, impatience with each other, judgment of those we hardly know, insistence that "they" are the problem, the inability and unwillingness to dialogue together on a solution speaks to a restlessness.
These observations may seem a negative outlook, but I see these symptoms as a sign of humanity's intuitive move toward redemption.
