"We have it in our power to begin the world over again."
A Legacy of Love
Every generation cultivates a legacy that is tied to the times in which they existed. As FDR said, “There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations, much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.” The Millennial generation is next in line to have a rendezvous with destiny.
My belief is that the Millennial Generation’s legacy will be summed up with one simple yet powerful word: love. Truthfully, the soul purpose of every person on this planet is to love everyone and everything unconditionally. When enough of humanity chooses love and compassion over indifference and hate, the energy on the planet will shift, creating a New Earth built on the foundation of that love. Millennials are the generation destined to complete this shift, and we are well on our way to doing so as we aggressively push back against the disintegrating old system.
The old system is built on a foundation of greed, selfishness, suppression, oppression, and inequality. It’s purpose was to maintain the wealth and power of the very few, at the extreme expense of the many. It maintained its power by keeping humanity divided and living in a constant state of fear, denial and unconsciousness. It did this by elevating the ego and suppressing the spirit. Religion, race and gender are the the key areas where this system kept humanity divided. We have been programmed to believe that we are separate not only from each other, but from Source, and that our race, religion, gender, sexual orientation and ethnicity make us either inferior or superior to others. We have been lied to, deceived, cheated, drugged, manipulated, and even murdered en mass in order for this system to stay in control.
We are, in this very moment, witnessing the end of that system. It crumbles before our eyes, finally succumbing to weight of its own callousness and instability. This was inevitable. Now, as the old system continues to fall apart, chaos has ensued, and we see those who represent the ways of that system clinging desperately to whatever is still left of it. They are doubling down on the lies, manipulations, deceptions and spreading of misinformation. It has reached the point where we don’t know what to believe anymore.
This chaos and instability will continue for a while, and will likely worsen over the next few years. But by the end of the next decade (2020’s), most of humanity will have awakened, and we will be well on our way to solidifying the foundation of the New Earth. Millennials are the young generation leading the charge to change. The “powers that be” have spent the better part of the last decade or so trying to convince society that Millennials are nothing but lazy, entitled, selfish, stupid and socially-inept young adults who refuse to grow up and move out of their parents basements. Millennials have been accused of ruining everything from chain restaurants to the workplace, but what we’re really ruining is the system that has enslaved humanity. We have refused to conform to what the old systems wants from us, and that is why we are such a threat to it. That is why they criticize us. They want us to believe that we aren’t powerful, and that change is impossible. Unfortunately for them, it isn’t working.
The Millennial Generation — unbeknownst to most Millennials — is in the process of tearing down the mechanisms that have maintained the old system. Indeed, no generation has ever posed a bigger threat to that way of life than Millennials. Baby Boomers came close, but in the end the old system won that battle. However, Boomers weren’t done. They raised a generation that is as large, confident and disruptive as they were. and now their children and grandchildren are picking up where they left off. The last battle was lost, but the war wasn’t.
Millennials, if we choose to love unconditionally, to live compassionately, to respect and accept ourselves and others, then we will put the final nail in the coffin, and the war will be over at last. Light and love are the way of the future, because they are the only way we can have a future. The only path to peace is through love. We must understand that. You cannot manifest peace with hate, intolerance, judgement and fear. You cannot face problems and heal trauma if you are in denial of their existence. Love is the only way we will survive. Our legacy must be one of love, because only love can save us. Love is the ultimate freedom.
