O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

The Battle of Fort Henry against the British
If we actually read and take in the words, not just recite or sing them by rote, this song captures our journey as Americans. We fought for our freedom. We fought for our rights. We fought to be united against tyranny. And we were proud of our accomplishments in the face of overwhelming odds.
As always, history repeats itself. Although the similar fight we’re in right now with our country in such inner turmoil isn’t a battle with rockets glaring red or bombs bursting in air against a tyrant. Physically, it isn’t. Metaphorically, it is. We’re fighting a battle to transform out of the fear of those who want to stay the same. We’re fighting tooth and nail to be free from the clinging, overbearing energy of the old Piscean Age self-righteous tyranny and step into the human awareness of the Aquarian Age. We’re fighting to evolve.
Human evolution in the Aquarian Age over the next 2,000 years is us finding who we are, not through the old ways of physical power-over (battle with another, victory over another, us vs. them), but through the power-within. Through true recognition and acceptance of self, we discover how we are all alike, recognize that we are all Human Beings and that we belong to each other and this planet together without separation by nationality, race, color, creed or gender.
At the end of the Aquarian Age, we will find ourselves in complete equality with everyone’s individual path and background and purpose. This doesn’t mean we won’t be different, but that each individual is honored for who they are and what they bring to the world. We will still have younger and older souls, we will still have diversity and different concepts of thought. But when diversity instills acceptance and appreciation rather than fear, we’ll know we’ve truly evolved.
It’s a long journey. And it’s not a fantasy. The shift in vibration is already moving us in that direction. I don’t think it will take 2,000 years for us to get the basic understanding of it all. We have already made so much progress in the last several decades leading into the Aquarian Age shift. And things are changing exponentially.
However, it’s easy to see the current stuckness of the Piscean Age hold-outs causing the end time of our country. But that’s really just a bunch of bumps in the road. They’re big, dangerous, threatening and life-altering bumps. But even in their intensity, they cannot stop the bigger picture of Aquarian Age evolution from transforming us.
My ancestry goes back to the American Revolution with a genuine hero in the family who fought the British. I’m proud of that background. I’m proud to have been born in America and to call myself an American even though I know we are no where near perfect and we still have so far to go. Especially now. But everyone on the planet has a far way to go. Especially now.
So here’s to celebrating our glorious country as we struggle to find our identity once again. I have complete faith that we will. I have complete faith that this necessary Great Negative Lesson that is on us now is doing its job in showing us how we want to be by clearly showing us how we don’t want to be.
We’ve done it before. We’ll do it this time. And our accomplishment this time will not be power-over anyone else but in strength to lead by example.
I offer this with love and gratitude and hope…
