Discussion Board: All Matters Spiritual and Spiritualist
Date: 16 March 2017
We have to accept reality as it is. We have to accept that many people in 2016 and 2017, in the US and in Europe, want to backpedal. They want to return to the 1950-60s because it is familiar and because they feel fear at the unknown: The world is changing fast and they do not have the attitude and the skills required to look at change in the face and deal with it.
Being afraid of ghosts, spirits or para normal activities (real or imagined) is part of the pattern of going backwards. Remember that only a few centuries ago men were still burning "witches" in Massachusetts USA.
So, the fear that brings resistance to change - including socially and politically - is the same fear that brings alarm when a ouija board is taken out of the closet.
My take on the present times: We accept reality but we keep working at improving it. Each of us can work at our individual level in explaining spirituality - and if we are lucky to have their ear, spiritualism - to the people we know either in person among our friends and families, or online where there is often a "multiplying factor".
