We are entering into a period of time (the early years of the 21st century) where we are surrounded by an ever increasing number of problems that have no solutions. It seems to me that it is useful to understand that we are dealing with predicaments and not problems. Problems have solutions given the right leadership, resources, application, etc. Predicaments are different in that all too often they do not have simple solutions and must be lived through. They require fortitude and the courage to endure. One learns to ‘suffer consciously’ the burning issues of the day and age into which one is born as well as one’s own personal burden- so that one does not increase the gathering storm.
Predicaments are unique. Therefore, there is no map or set of answers waiting to be introduced. Something within our souls, spirits, and character must be located and be strengthened in order for authentic growth and passage down this corridor of time to occur. We are now being forced to wake up and grow up.
Nature is imposing suffering, tragedy, obstruction, difficulty in order to force us to find a new and higher order of thought. That new emerging worldview (N.E.W) is singing to us. It comes to us from the past, the present, and the future. It is calling to us. Can we hear it ?? Can we align with it ?? What then do we do, we ask ?? It is enough to ask that question to set processes into motion that need be discovered with intelligence and right intention.
