I don't think the world is coming to an end, it's just going through some birth pangs and then we'll be in a new dispensation.
It's going to be and already is going to be a difficult time for a lot of people because the commonly held beliefs are being shown to be insubstantial and this means people are losing their complacency, which is excellent because humility is the ideal quality to have to be flexible and to be able to move with fast changing events.
Children have it more naturally in some cases and if this loss of complacency results in more childlike people, I'm all for it!
Unfortunately, there will be those that will want to cling onto the old ways, no matter what but I'm afraid their going to find themselves in the centre of a farce!
Thanks for sharing all your experiences, you certainly have had a few!
