In this year of 2012, we hear a lot of talk and discussion about cycles and eras in human history.  Sometimes there is talk of a dark age or a golden era.  Do you believe humanity has such eras?

It’s my contention that in every era, there have been people who find it to be golden for them and others, maybe the vast majority of others, still struggle to survive. Sometimes the personal and collective perception aligns, and we often refer to these times as a golden age.

We are now living through a time which many people experience as devastating, frightening, dangerous and fear-filled.  For others this is a glorious time of opportunity, a great time to be alive.  Sometimes, we feel both simultaneously.

When we take away external conditions, both personal and collective, we are left with the creator of enchantment — our own perception.

What can you do today to discover the enchanted oasis within you and outside of you to recognize or create your own golden era in life?

P.S. It’s my opinion we are in the early stages of a golden era for humanity.  Let’s make it one!
