It is my belief that we are lucky people; all of us that are alive for the past 30 years and will be around for the next 10, independently of which generation we are.
-We experienced the change of a Century.
Not too many people live in a time frame that allow them to see the changes, fears and hopes that brings the change in digits from one hundred years to the next.
-We experienced the change of a Millennium!
Again, how many people can say they lived the change between a thousand years and the next? How many people can say they experienced the uneasiness generated by the change (positive and negative) and with it have the opportunity to see what it is felt in a moment like that in history? It has happened only once before in the modern calendar!
-We saw the Haley Comet which only visits us every 75-76 years.
Maybe some people could see it twice in their lifetime, but for that they could miss the previous one.
-We had the opportunity to experience one of the biggest technological “jumps” in human history (so far)
In just about 30 years we went from the AM radio set with two knobs to the touch screen in such small devices we can have today; 3D TV systems, the microwave oven, the fridge, air conditioning and of course, the communication possibilities that exist today that didn’t exist just a few years ago, etc
-We are at the edge of discovering our truth about spiritualism.
From the blind beliefs for thousands of years to the reason backed up actual concepts that promote a deeper understanding and joy, together with the more open minds about different possibilities, others than religious doctrines, and the generally accepted open study and comparison of different religions and concepts from anywhere around the world.
-We are closer than ever to understand the human mind.
So far the body could be understood almost completely, yet the mind remains a mystery in many aspects, but slowly its secrets are being deciphered and with it, many possibilities open up for us, not only in the medical field, but also in the self improvement area. There’s so much more we can do now when more is understood and discovered everyday.
-We “could” create the necessary changes for a definite contact with races from other planets (Yes, I do believe in Aliens, I am one, remember?)
A tough one considering the mentality change required among so many people, yet the possibility exist now thanks to the technology that would allows us to finish with the problems of poverty and injustice around the world and the communication systems that can allows us to finally connect as a one race. I know, all we need to do now is convince each other and that’s where we get stuck, but at least we do have the opportunity which, as a race, we didn’t have before in history, and if we do the homework we will meet the requirements for the contact.
-There are so many more things to consider but just a short view to some of them can give us a good idea of the great times we live in, so for the above reasons, I do believe we are very lucky people!
