In my mind, you don’t have to wait to make a change, you can do it right now. All you have to do is decide to live from a place where your soul is the foundation of how you direct your life, rather than how society dictates. After the apocalypse, I believe society will be based upon the soul, rather than ego. Right now, society rewards ego at the expense of your soul. Eventually, I believe that will no longer happen because it is an unproductive, painful, fruitless endeavor that leads to endless problems for everyone. Nobody actually feels good about it. People as a whole generally move away from it.
The apocalypse I see is not material, but spiritual, social, and psychological in nature. There may be a great deal of material upheaval, but not the kind of pummel-to-rubble annihilation that our “end of the world” stories depict.
As a spiritual person, all my life I’ve been deeply concerned about morality, justice, righteousness. Right and wrong, doing the right thing, being on the right side of a matter. I learned to stand up for what is right, no matter the cost, and I learned to follow the love in my own heart to guide me to Truth. I learned humility, discipline, honoring the wisdom and God in others. I have heard stories about the End Times all my life and I have ever since been seeking resolution for this matter in my own mind. I think, each in our own way, everyone is.
