Age of Aquarius

universal human values The basic characteristic of the age of Aquarius is the fact that one should be the change one wants to see in the world. Today we can see an interesting paradox. On one hand the old institutions and isms that were so typical of the old age of Pisces show more and more malfunction and corruption. Yet the media still give the majority of publishing space to them, because we are all used to think that changes come from the top. On the other hand there are numerous bloggers and independent newsletters that write about saving the planet and the people on it, about re-introducing universal human values and compassion. They seem insignificant due to the small circle of readership in comparison to the traditional media. Yet they are many of them and the traditional media are losing readers. If we open our mind for new things, we can feel the wave of change that is definitely coming bottom-up this time.

If we want the teachers to be respected again, we should be the first ones to respect them and not insult and criticize them in front of the kids.

If we want the doctors to be able to work under normal conditions, we need to do everything we can to stay healthy.

If we want more order and tolerance in traffic, we should be the role models.

And so on and on. The list is endless.

Take care,
