Awakening is a term used more and more these days to indicate that many people in society are beginning to view the world differently, and, we like to think, live from a higher state of consciousness. I used it recently in my article observing the various sides of the flat earth movement, you can read the article here: The Great Awakening - Flat Earth.
Information that previously we may never have even been aware of, or perhaps not have considered relevant to us suddenly has an attraction. I’ve seen many people who previously never had any interest in meditation, or yoga, or anything that may broaden their mind to alternative ways of living or perceiving the world, in recent years they've began to explore various alternative medicines, healing therapies and begin to read the alternative media, switching off the television. They start to feel the struggle in the world, or more accurately to notice the struggle within themselves, to let go of their old persona, to evolve beyond career and relationships.

This is a subject that I find very interesting lately, and not for the reasons you think, but because I think it shows signs of having enormous potential for waking people up, it is the present Flat Earth movement.

I will not discuss any of the flat earth theories here, that is not the purpose of this article, the point is to observe how people react when presented with new information. I'll leave a few introductory links at the bottom for anyone who is curious.

I could start this post with ‘The people are taking back power in Greece!’, but that’s a bit presumptive, so how about:
Are people taking back power in Greece with the rise of Syriza? Is Spain next to address corruption and look out for ‘the poor’ with one year old political party Podemos? Why are the Irish marching against water charges, with Sinn Fein (political wing of terrorist organisation the IRA) just about the most popular party?
The common element in each of these cases is they all hold extreme socialist policies. So when the people get angry and feel dis-empowered, they veer Left. So is this the revolution that has been in the air? Will these politicians remove the stranglehold of power and massive wealth from the 1%, to use the language of the day?
Marching is not enough, protesting is not enough. Waving a flag and demanding someone else make the important decisions does not make you a revolutionary.
