Context: Llewelyn Vaughn-Lee’s article: Witnessing the End of an Era. He speaks of a light having gone out – the light that gives meaning to the last era – a collective light, connected with the evolution of humanity, which should normally transform into the light of the next era, but which instead has guttered and died through our cumulative greed and selfishness.
Llewelyn is correct in his sensing – he is an inspired teacher who is tuning into reality through his innate soul’s gifts, rather than following the prescribed teachings of the spiritual tradition that brought him to his spiritual maturity. This is the sign of an Aquarian teacher.
The light of which Llewelyn speaks is an energetic resonance attuned to humanity’s collective response to the kosmic impulse of the Piscean era, which has now ceased to beat, simply because the kosmos has moved on.
It is not that the light of humanity’s collective soul has been extinguished – rather, there has been a randomisation, or mass disturbance of the human field brought about by the extreme dissonance that has arisen from the fact that the collective conditioning of humanity – which is now more connected than ever around certain shared stories – is jarringly out of alignment with the recently evolved rhythms of the basic impulse emanating out from the kosmic core, inviting new thought forms, new patterns and structures that align with the dawning Aquarian Age.
The situation is far from hopeless, however. The light of humanity’s collective soul, as it has manifested through the aeons, could not survive the passage to the Aquarian Age, for a reason that has to do with the nature of humanity’s next evolutionary step – itself called into being by the dawning new age.
The rise of humanity is not merely a random evolutionary accident. Alone of all species on Earth, you have developed the consciousness to dissociate from your natural surroundings, to experience yourselves as differentiated, separate. As Llewelyn rightly says, it is this sense of separateness that has brought you to the brink of catastrophe. But this is not a false turning or an optional phase of your development. Rather, it is a crucial rite of passage that each and every human being must traverse who is alive at this time, whether during the passage of life, or at the transition through death.
What lies on the other side is an awakening into the realisation that humanity is not separate from Gaia. Your understanding has evolved sufficiently for you to see your living environment as a planet in the universe – it is no longer just a place, a location, a country or a content. You recognise the oneness of the human family – even if not all humans have yet learned to live by that truth. Now there are those among you who are awakening to the lived sensory experience that humanity is physically, emotionally, energetically and psychically part of the metabolism of Gaia, and you are learning, slowly, man by man, woman by woman, what that means.
And with every individual awakening, one more man, one more woman walks through the initiatory portal into integration with Gaia, and through Gaia with the kosmos.
And so, you see, the light of the kosmos is not diminished by the passing of the light of the era that has passed. The light of Gaia’s own awakening awareness will begin to blaze ever more brightly as she embraces more and more sparks of human consciousness, freely surrendered into her governance, awakened to their power to witness and be undone by the beauty and majesty of What Is. This is the Portal into Radiance.
