In the late 17th and 18th centuries, there was a European intellectual movement. This movement highlighted reason and individualism rather than tradition. This movement was known as The Age of Enlightenment. In this time, there was a shift of consciousness and philosophy around the era of scientific exploration. History tends to repeat itself. I think that we are in a New Age of Enlightenment. This new age is a shift into conscious awareness and individuals working together as one collective force.
This is the awareness of coexisting together on one planet that we all call home. As a community, we are shifting to learn how to work together to preserve the Earth. We are the smartest animals in the world and now is the time we use that power for good. We depend on this planet to survive. All of the pollution is a huge concern. Thankfully, there are many people that bring awareness to what needs to be done to prevent further pollution. Pick up the piece of trash you see on the ground and throw it away. Even better, recycle as much as possible. I find that my recycle bin is always full and I barely have actual trash to throw away. That just goes to show how much unnecessary plastic our society uses.
There is also an awareness of compassion for humanity. Although there is war and hatred prevalent, there is a shift for most countries to care for each other. Especially during a time of war, we tend to see people have empathy for one another. We are all enduring the destruction together and it is not caused from the people, it is caused from the government’s radical choices. The conscious awareness is shifting towards love. Good will always prevail evil. It all starts with the love of self. Then spreads to the love of others. Love will always dispel fear.
Technology has advanced so quickly. We are able to connect and communicate to people on the other side of the world with a click of a button. It is easier more than ever to send someone a heart through text and that little message can impact that person’s entire day! We are inventing alternative energies that will help preserve the Earth. Technology has to be a factor when we are looking for solutions to preserve our Earth. Many people donate money or their lives to creating reservations where Mother Earth can rebuild herself.
We can all play our part to sharpen the shift of conscious awareness. We can have empathy and compassion for others. We can recycle and reuse material goods. We can do our absolute best to support eco-friendly companies and spend that extra dollar to make a difference. The human race is only becoming more intelligent with larger brains scientifically. We are a part of this New Age of Enlightenment and it begins within each individual. You are the past, present, and future. You are the difference!
