(0) Comments | Posted October 25, 2013 | 5:35 AM

It's coming around again, as such cycles always do. For a number of years I have been talking (amongst other people) about the new consciousness emerging -- or rather unfolding -- over these years.

To break the spell of our multilayered social conditioning requires that a whole new system of perception is brought into being.
