The Great Awakening
The Mythology of Our Times
The Great Awakening has been used to describe a number of religious revivals in American Christian History that occurred throughout the early 18th century to the late 20th century.
Today, there is a collective sense of a transition to a New Earth. The United Nations has proposed their Great Reset. QAnon has their version called Our Great Awakening. It seems like all of this is a reaction to a general sentiment that many people are feeling right now:
Storytelling through broadcast media has created a fabric of reality that is tearing in this time of transition. The Matrix (1999) introduced the concept of the Red Pill and the Blue Pill. Both pills are incomplete. Our new mythology is becoming more narrowcasted, more decentralized, and more fragmented. Multidimensional rabbitholes can be found everywhere.
Artist Parinya Champ created the Great Awakening Map that is a fascinating map of these rabbitholes. Humanity is having a psychedelic experience and reality is fraying at the edges. Imagination and consciousness are untapped potential that create a consensus reality, manifested through actions governed by belief.
There is an interesting connection between the psychedelic/yogi communities and Trump supporters. I have close friends in both camps, which is strangely becoming one camp. Both “sides” are rebelling against the “mainstream media” and Blue Church narratives and have decided that maybe Trump isn’t the Antichrist. If this is upsetting, it seems like an opportunity to explore those emotions. I recommend spending some time in Psychedelic Renaissance, Tao Te Ching, and Terence McKenna/DMT corner. Hanging out in Entheogen Shaman Dolphins and Whales Pleiadian Soul Family land is pretty cool too.
It seems to be a truism that everything is an illusion. Each of us has the capability to choose how we respond to our own waking dreams and how we contribute to the collective dream. But, waking up is exhausting, remember to get some good sleep too, because sleep deprivation can cause psychosis.
