The "New Age"-it's a phrase we use, but what does it mean? Does it mean that we are entering the Aquarian Age? Does it mean that a new Messiah is coming to correct all that is wrong and make Earth into a Garden? Probably not—but the idea of a major change is there, combined with awareness that earth can be a Garden; that war, crime, poverty, disease, etc., are not necessarily "evils."
Optimists, dreamers, scientists . . . nearly all of us believe in a "better tomorrow," and that somehow we can do things now that will make for a better future life for ourselves and for coming generations.
In one sense, we all know there's nothing new under the Heavens, and in another sense that every day makes a new world. The difference is in out consciousness. And this is what the New Age is all about: it's a major change in consciousness found within each of us as we learn to bring forth and manifest powers that Humanity has always potentially had.
Evolution moves in "leaps." Individuals struggle to develop talents and powers, and their efforts build a "power bank" in the Collective Unconsciousness, the soul of Humanity that suddenly makes these same talents and powers easier access for the majority.
You still have to learn the "rules" for developing and applying these powers, but it is more like a "re-learning" than a new learning, because with the New Age it is as if the basis for these had become genetic.
