A message from the Mothers:
The last two hundred years have been amongst the hardest for Man.
The “why” can be identified in two points:
1. People have become isolated from one another. The invention of machinery has caused the extreme isolation of individuals out of the community into enterprise employment and even after work hours into their homes with inventions like television. Machinery has meant that much more can be done by one person. The extra time now available is spent doing more work, on bigger farms or in bigger factories. This has lead to more debt and risk and has drawn people into an increasing isolation. The potential of machinery to free up time, provide us with more leisure, has become lost in the demand for production and profit.
2. Emotional opportunities have been lost. Before all the machinery, people were forced to muck in together at say harvest time and such intermingling created opportunities for pent up energies to be released, even if this meant strong words, the odd shove or fisty cuffs with the prouder men. These things apparently are much better in this format, because the wiser ones in the community could counsel the wounds and victories, to facilitate any learnings that served the group resulting from the odd tiff. The full range of emotions could be experienced in the group, during this harvest example. Much laughter and even tears of joy can flow as some banter happened, or someone clowned around, whilst the people were toiling away together etc. People isolated from their community loose many opportunities for joy and laughter, emotional evolution and healing, and social maturity also.
The Mothers from their perspective of being from behind the veil, are able to see all the ages. They point out that the last two hundred years have been amongst the hardest man has endured. The labouring has got easier, but life has got harder. No wonder people strive for community now days.
Blessings, Brad, Caroline and the Mothers.
