“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”
It is very hard to look at your own life with absolute objectivity but I have notice that my life has a funny way of repeating the same scenario over and over again until I learn my mistakes and then the cycle stops.
I don’t know if your experience is the same or if you have any friends like that but it looks to me that history it’s repeating itself with each individual and with each generation.
That in itself, might not be such a bad thing.
We need to learn some how in order to grow.
But here is my question:
We have made such huge technological advancements as species, to the point that we can destroy or save the whole planet.
Can we afford to repeat the same mistakes our past generations have made?
I use not to think much about the future of the planet – it was always more about me and my life – but since I have become a father some profound change has taking place – I believe at hormonal level – I have become very susceptible to the pledge of others distress. I got that what people call “a maternal instinct”
And I am not talking about people only, but animal, plant and the mineral world as well.
Could it be also my Buddhist meditation practice has become more profound, more attuned about the same time?
I do not know exactly but certainly I have changed.
The reason I ‘m bringing in my meditation is because during my practice I have been receiving this emotional warning of catastrophic change.
I know what you are thinking “here goes another one of those impending doom, end of the world prophecies” but it is not a prophecy, it is just a feeling.
My heart is restless and my soul is troubled, but not for my self.
I am an old fart, I really don’t care if I die or not – I have lost that fear a long time ago!
I have a restless need to search, to learn, to act and to change.
I wish my emotions were clearer in what I have to do, but never the less I have to keep on going wherever my journey takes me.
Am I on a brink of a profound change?
Does anybody else feels the way I feel - that a profound shift in human consciousness is about to happen - or am I just paranoid?
