What in the world is really going on?
It’s as though the world is going crazy!
If you thought 2015 was challenging, wait until 2016 gets going.

Who could deny that the times are speeding up—rapidly? That what used to occur in a decade now takes place in a year. In 2016, what happens in a week’s time would have transpired over a month in 2015. What exactly is driving this time-compressing dynamic? What primal forces are being exerted that can produce such a time-twisting effect?
Many profoundly misunderstand the underlying realities and have come to believe that we now live in a:
There is a much better way to look at the End Times in order to truly comprehend the current state of world affairs. There are schools of cosmology and calendrics found within in the Eastern traditions which serve to inform in ways that complement the Western understanding.
Kali Yuga = Iron AgeOnly by viewing the unfolding final act of the Kali Yuga can anyone correctly apprehend the meaning and message that is issued forth by every worldwide event of great import. Because the Kali Yuga belongs to the most esoteric spiritual traditions of the East, it must be viewed through the lens of Eastern calendrics and cosmology.
Before that exercise is undertaken, there are two crucial questions which ought to be answered. Both of these questions are central to human existence, and yet they often remain unanswered. In this way the very context of human existence remains ill-defined and amorphous, without proper boundaries or necessary limits.
When the most basic context of the home of humanity is not deeply understood — by everyone — and recognized across the whole civilization, there naturally develops a state of doubt and insecurity. When the very foundation of one’s existence is in doubt, the consequent state of mind is such that it becomes a breeding ground for all sorts of other doubts and insecurities. Eventually a current of instability runs through the whole society only because the people lack the most basic knowledge and eternal wisdom regarding the most important matters.
This predicament is exactly what occurred for many centuries as the Roman Catholic Church kept the masses throughout Western civilization in the state of imposed ignorance. Even today, with so many new scientific paradigms in place, which have replaced the dogma and doctrines of religion, much true knowledge has been withheld from the people. In this fashion are they sustained in a similar condition of ignorance and misunderstanding, confusion and misconceptions.
The first question that much be answered for the sake of establishing a realistic frame of reference is: What time is it, cosmologically speaking, that is?
The total lifetime (or actual duration) of the material universe is approximately 34.5 billion years long. The current age of the Universe is approximately 13.75 billion years old. The age of Planet Earth is about 4.54 billion years old.
During the course of that four and a half billion years Earth has hosted somewhere between 5 and 7 different races of humanity. By the time that the present Universe dissolves and is absorbed back into the VOID, there will have been a total of 14 human races which will have inhabited the Earth plane of existence.
Weapons of war are fashioned with steel made of iron during the Iron Age. Whoever had the strongest weapons often won the wars, even in this new era of nuclear weaponry which are also housed in steel.
Each epochal period within which a new humanity takes birth evolved according the cycles of the Yugas. Every major epoch begins with a Golden Age, also known as Satya Yuga. The Golden Age is followed by the Silver Age or Treta Yuga. The Silver Age is in turn followed by the Bronze Age. The final and darkest of all the ages is the Kali Yuga or Iron Age.
So, for starters, is it critical to understand that our planetary civilization — right now — finds itself deep in throes of the Kali Yuga, also known as the Age of Conflict. For those who grew up in argument-prone families or are presently in quarrel-ridden relationships, the Kali Yuga is also known as the Age of Quarrel.
Because each of these major ages is preceded by a dawn and officially ended via a twilight period, it is important to be aware that 2016 puts us smack in the middle of the twilight period. Some Hindu historians and cosmologists have hypothesized that World War II marked the beginning of the end of the Kali Yuga. This is why many feel a sense that it is always darkest before the new dawn … because the dreaded Kali Yuga is very close to its final end.
This final stretch of the twilight period will possess many of the qualities and aspects for which the Kali Yuga is well known. Not only that, those distinguishing features will be increased in numbers and significantly intensified. The Iron Age (aka the Kali Yuga) is distinguished by its prevalent use of iron throughout the civilization, just as our modern society is, especially since the advent of the Industrial Revolution. The Kali Yuga is also understood by the sages and seers, saints and siddhas to be the darkest and densest of all four ages. This is why they descend in the manner just explained above. With each passing age humanity sinks deeper into materialism, and becomes less aware of its true spiritual nature (also known as the Fall).
What follows is a breakdown of the descending yugas together with their dawns and twilights beginning approximately 60,000 years ago. This particular graphic the book “While the Gods Play “ by Alain Daniélou tells you what time it is in a way that no other will ever reveal.
Each New Human Race Always Begins With A Golden AgeThe planet always receives each human race in a pure and pristine condition. This is always known as the Golden Age. However, there are also ages within ages which are the cause for much misunderstanding. In other words there can be mini golden ages within the Kali Yuga and there have been. Likewise, there can be mini dark ages within the other more enlightened ages such as the Silver Age.
What is most significant about the twilight period of the Kali Yuga is that humanity is experiencing many glimmers of the Golden Age that is to follow. Most know not the actual timing or the way that such “a new heaven and new earth” will be formed in the firmament, they just know that it’s coming. They don’t realize that the birth of such a Golden Age is not without its unavoidable birth pangs and subsequent period of formation and development.
All the religious traditions have their own scriptural narratives which describe these End Times in a language that was befitting those ancient times and cultures. Every one delineates a period of great “trials and tribulations”. The Christian Bible even speaks of the Great Tribulation. Such a time of troubles is the result of the collective destiny of the human family. Each nation and city, continent and hemisphere has its own destiny as well. Though the laws of karma are truly mysterious, there is no stopping it.
The End Times of the Apocalypse are merely the outworking of all the individual and collective karmas which must be processed (and experienced) before the final end of the Kali Yuga. Let’s face it, there is no other age like the current Age of Conflict for confronting so much unresolved karma. That testy and unresolved relationship can be with a spouse, a parent, a child, a sibling, a business partner, etc. When have times been so fraught with stuff that opportunities will arise by the moment to neutralize relationship karma, both good and bad, positive and negative, pleasant and harsh?
This is the real beauty of the Kali Yuga. Not only is each soul given the chance to get it right this time around, he or she can live vicariously through others and, in an arm’s distance way, learn greatly from the mistakes of others. Whether by TV or movie theater, desktop or laptop, everyone can watch the fruits of karma being borne by others all day long. The whole planet is now sufficiently hardwired so that information technology brings news of practically everything to your smartphone or computer instantly and 24/7.
The Kali Yuga is no walk in the park … ever.Now we answer the question in the title more directly. “What in the world is REALLY going on down here?”
Only by reading the various scriptures can a human being adequately apprehend the nature of these tumultuous, tempestuous and turbulent times. Even the weather reflects the constant conflict among nations and incessant war-mongering by the rich and powerful. In fact, there is no sphere of life which is immune to the continual quarreling that comes with the Kali Yuga.
With the Internet now operating at full tilt around the globe, there are more instances than ever for people to mix it up. Between Facebook and Twitter, the opportunities for disagreements and arguments truly abound. YouTube and Instagram also provide plenty of situations for folks to clash even if it’s about disagreeing about one’s favorite rock group or song from the ’70s.
What’s the point? There is no other age like the Kali Yuga where the karma of relationship(s) comes back to haunt … with a vengeance. It is the very nature of the Kali Yuga — Quarrel and Conflict — as we see on every square inch of Planet Earth today. Yes, this is the time when father is set against son, mother against daughter, brother against brother and sister against sister. It is also when friend not only fights foe, friends even fight among themselves. Neighbors spar with each other just as business partners feud and churches have their internal spats. Simply put, the whole world has been set ablaze with differences and divisions … about practically everything under the Sun.
As the global feuds get bigger and graduate to a larger stage they often translate to regional wars between nations (e.g. Middle East) and/or world wars between blocks of nations. Usually the people of those nations have no real argument with each other, they are just pit against each other by forces which control one or both of them. In this manner, the whole world is now dominated by so much war and conflict. False flag attacks and bombings, mass shootings and assassinations are deliberately utilized to provoke each other into a state of war or lower level conflict.
But why? Why does it always devolve in a downward spiral?The best way to understand why the yugas descend as a downward spiral into ever-intensifying chaos and disorder is as follows. The simplest explanation is that “in the beginning” there were only two; 2 people, that is, who had everything and did not have to share anything. They soon became three, and then four, and eight and so on. The obvious observation is that there were far fewer human beings inhabiting the planet during the previous ages. Just as significantly, the Earth back then was is in a pristine condition unsullied by centuries of use, abuse and misuse.
With this understanding it ought to be easy to see how the planet will always get progressively more polluted and used up. By the end of the Kali Yuga, how much of the Earth is left to support over 7 billion people. Especially when those people are all looking to satisfy both needs as well as many unnecessary desires. It only stands to reason that eventually those desires — like the ten-headed Ravana of Lord Rama fame — will find themselves insatiable and forever increasing. What then?
The world’s geopolitical chessboard is now dominated by those once rich but still powerful Western nations that have always acquired forcefully what was not theirs. Even right now — today, in fact — they continue to demand still more. Their unceasing war-mongering has triggered unprovoked wars of aggression around the globe and destabilized the whole planet as a result. Each war is primarily about stealing land and natural resources, as well as occupying strategic locations and trade routes. Of course, their ultimate goal is to exert absolute control over the world community of nations.
Global Population Explosion Marks the End of the Kali Yuga
Back to the population explosion which began with the development of energy supplies which became so plentiful that the Industrial Revolution catapulted civilization into a whole new realm.
Let’s look at the current state of affairs: The 7 billion residents and counting are now all going in different directions. Real community in the West has all but left the patriarchal reservation just as countless communities throughout the Western civilization have essentially disintegrated. Everyone now does their own thing, right or wrong, agreeable or offensive. The pervasive permissive society rules the day every day and virtually everywhere. The insufferable regime of political correctness and the ubiquitous thought police are a reflection of the permissive which will be accepted by everyone.The surest sign of the end of any age is the population explosion which inevitably occurs throughout its final days. This single development, along with all the other forms of inexorable, profound and fundamental societal deterioration, always lead to the same final sequence of events. With over seven billion people currently inhabiting the planet, there is only one outcome that can be expected, and it is only a matter of when that outcome will manifest.
(Source: Global Population Explosion Signifies the End of the Modern Era )
In such a climate, the perceived ‘rights’ of the individual have overwhelmed the greater good of society to the extent that the greater good has been relegated to a relatively low status. In this manner has the devolution of society occurred both incrementally and imperceptibly. The social fabric of America, for instance, is now so torn to shreds it is barely recognizable just as the U.S. Constitution has been relentlessly shredded.
What created the hospitable environment for the degradation of society to occur so quickly?
There is actually a confluence of powerful circumstances which have conspired to accelerate the current downward spiral. As a matter of fact, the Mayan Long Count Calendar (MLCC) quite presciently predicts the collapse of civilization as we know it. The various creation cycles (as illustrated by the MLCC) evolve in a way whereby each one moves substantially faster than the previous cycle. For example, we are now cruising through the Galactic Creation Cycle (GCC) on the way to the Universal Creation Cycle (UCC). The GCC roughly aligns with the Internet Age. It will be followed by the UCC which will unfold in a manner that will be too much and too fast for most to bear.
The present Age of Information effectively began in 1995 when the Internet really started to gain prominence throughout the USA and Europe. This single development would soon change the way we all live, work and play. It would also provide access to an enormous amount of information and data to every digitally connected person. More significantly, countless portals into vast libraries of mundane knowledge and spiritual wisdom have also been made available to the masses.
With these meteoric changes taking place on the planet while the Earth itself is undergoing a massive transformation, there is now the inherent potential for many things to jump off without warning. Unanticipated monumental events will now happen when least expected. The number and intensity of these unpredictable occurrences are occurring because the entire space-time continuum is undergoing a metamorphosis of sorts. In fact it is re-conforming itself to a new kind of consciousness that has been slowly emerging but is now quickening. Don’t you feel it?
Don’t you experience more and more of these cosmic birth pangs with each passing day? It’s as though the morphogenetic field of this plane of existence is experiencing a major reboot with a whole new operating system. As this process continues to intensify over the next few years, the Universal Creation Cycle will eventually kick in. At that point it will seem as if time and space are fast approaching a zero point moment. Some have even proposed that an event horizon type event will take place in order to rapidly catapult the resonant frequency of the Earth into a realm known as 4th or 5th Density. All of this occurs as the vibration of humanity is consistently being raised through an influx of powerful cosmic rays which have been saturating the entire Solar System.
The Kali Yuga has a way (just look around) — of insidiously lowering the vibration of the planet because of how complex and confusing, difficult and wearing life has become. Traditional society is literally dissolving via so many different vectors of moral depravity and cultural degeneracy. The fatally flawed paradigms which undergird the entire civilization are all collapsing under the weight of their collective defects and deficiencies.
As a result, faith in the System is quickly breaking down. Confidence is the structures and institutions is waning. Trust in those who administer those institutions — the establishment — is diminishing faster than they can process it or manage it. Those who have methodically manipulated humanity over millennia have been exposed for everyone to see. As such, belief in the System is now diminishing by the day. Group loyalty to the reigning political and social, financial and economic, scientific and academic institutions is dwindling rapidly as individual conviction declines.
In light of these profound and fundamental fractures and fluxes throughout the planetary civilization, the worst of Kali Yuga has broken out into the open for all to see. Not only is the underbelly being exposed as never before, the workings of the World Shadow Government (WSG) are being laid bare for close examination … by every person who cares to via the Internet. In so doing every individual has become a potential lightworker who may choose to, or not to, anchor the sublime and rarefied light that is now suffusing the Earth realm.
Which brings us to exactly: “Where We Are”… in the universeJust where is Planet Earth, our Solar System and the Milky Way Galaxy? Exactly where is our blue orb located within the material Universe?
The graphic above shows the Milky Way Galaxy right in the middle of this map of the Universe. Of course, it was placed there because that is the frame of reference provided by the strategically located observatories and high-powered telescopes which assisted in the mapping process. Regardless of why the Milky Way was situated dead center, this just happens to be an accurate depiction of Earth’s location relative to the Universe. Our galaxy is situated very much toward the center of our Universe, which is ‘forever’ expanding outward into the Great Void. Eventually that outward expansion will hit the proverbial wall and then the Universe will begin to contract the same way it expanded. The time that it takes for the entire cosmic breath — both in-breathe and out-breath — to transpire is approximately 34.5 billion years. Both the expansion and contraction phases are equal in duration at about 17.25 billion years.
The Universe will eventually be reabsorbed into the Void whereupon it will exist as pure, unchanging Consciousness for the same amount of time as it became manifest. In this way the cosmic “blink of Brahma” — Brahma being the Creator — takes place with unwavering cosmic regularity. Whenever Brahma opens his eyes the world appears; when he closes them, it disappears. All the while numerous races of humanity are born and deceased. Each successive grouping of humanity begins where the previous one left off. Sometimes there is a greater degree of involution into matter taking place, other times it is an evolution out of materialism that occurs.
Just as the human being is made in the image and likeness of the Supreme Being, so, too, is the entire Cosmos. The Cosmic Being has actually taken the form of the Universe so that each part represents the various parts of his body of Supreme Consciousness. Because Supreme Consciousness is the ultimate source of the stuff of Creation, the whole Universe owes its manifestation to that ONE, which is also known as the Supreme Self or THAT. Known as TAT in Sanskrit, this portrayal of Supreme Consciousness is not only the very ground of being, but all that manifests from THAT as well.
The following diagram of the “One Universe” represents an Eastern perspective of this concept. Since the elaboration of the illustration is far beyond the scope of this essay, the primary reason for its inclusion is to show where Earth is located relative to the seven major planes of existence (or lokas) above and seven major planes that are below. Also known as Bhūrloka, the Earth is located right in the middle of the Universe.
The Universe can best be described as the Body of the Supreme Being. When He is placed within his Creation, He might appear as “The Vitruvian Man” of Leonardo Da Vince fame circumscribed by the Cosmic Egg. The representational image below closely portrays the way in which the Supreme Being is conformed within His creation. Hence, the Milky Way Galaxy would be located on His belly button. The moon above His head is analogous to Sahasrara which is also known as the crown chakra that causes the halo of the Christian saints and Hindu siddhas, Hebrew mystics and Sufi masters.

What does any of this discussion have to do with why the world is going crazy?
Because, if the people of the world don’t even know what time it is, or where they are, then what else could be expected.
If folks everywhere don’t even know where they are located in God’s Creation, that severe deficit of knowledge can be pretty unsettling just as not knowing what time it really is can be.
However, the much more important questions that are really driving a whole bunch of people crazy push many into drugs and alcohol, tobacco and caffeine, gambling and the Internet to find the answers. For many seekers the following two questions have been answered by philosophers and theologians, priest and rabbis, ministers and mentors who simply did not have the correct answers. It’s important to point out that the most significant of inquiries about life are rarely asked by the vast majority of human beings. That, right there, poses a HUGE problem for the rest of humanity.
How many ever genuinely ask themselves: “Why am I here?” Not just pose the question for a cursory intellectual answer; rather, perpetually posit it as a lifelong pursuit of deep self-inquiry.
Then there is the much more profound and meaningful question: “Who am I?”
Herein lies the root of the problem to today’s pervasive End-time Madness. Very few folks have ever asked these questions in earnest and consequently they are moved about like tug boats on the turbulent open sea.
Now we’re getting very close to the deeper issue. You see, when so few people even have the curiosity about themselves and their own lives, how will they ever pursue the truths in the outer mundane world? Why will they ever seek the truths of the Universe or real facts of life on Earth, if they don’t even care to know themselves, where they are from, and where they might be going.
When there is no spiritual curiosity, all of one’s pursuits in the material world are made in vain. When a person only works for themselves and not for the greater glory of God or Brahman or Allah or Yahweh or whoever their Supreme Being is, their work is inferior and tainted with ego. The art world is a perfect example where this is so. Just look at all the modern art that is produced which completely lacks inspiration, divine or otherwise. Listen to all the songs on the radio and feel all the low vibrations and hear all the cacophonous sounds. Watching so many movies that come out of Hollywood one will viscerally experience the utter depravity and sheer degeneracy of the society they reflect.
None of that so-called artful creativity passes for real art. Real art is a reflection of the Divine in His/Her Creation. True artwork of any kind ought to magnify the greatest qualities of humanity and most beautiful parts of Creation. That’s not to say a truly inspired artist cannot find inspiration in a junkyard because that can, and does, happen. It is always the sacred feeling and sublime intention that infuses any type of art. When the Almighty is present in the work, it is inspired artwork.
Now we’re getting somewhere.
You see, when there are 7 billion plus people running around who have not a clue about who they are, why they are here, or what to do while they are here, things will only go from bad to worse.
Now this is actually the way that the Kali Yuga has been set up, so there’s no need to worry. The slowly turning screw of the Kali Yuga is made to tighten — inexorably — so that at critical points as many people as possible will eventually wake up. In other words the utter craziness and sheer madness of life on Earth can either drive people to drink or drive them to know God. That is kind of where the beatniks and hippies got started on their spiritual journeys during the 1950s, 1960s and 70s. The post World War II beatniks, for instance, completely rejected the emerging Consumer Society and went full-bore countercultural and nonconforming, just as their junior hippies went totally anti-establishment and iconoclastic.
Fast forward to 2016 and now we see a considerable increase in the societal chaos and political mayhem. The Generation X, Y and Z folks are getting their taste of this BIG time as are the younger millennials. It’s their turn to feel the heat as the Western nations struggle with the twin plights of economic depressions and mass migration. Whether the exodus is spurred by a refugee crisis or violent drug cartels, the influx of illegal aliens has increased joblessness. Many countries have been pushed to serious levels of unemployment, a predicament which is certain to get much worse before it gets better. The governments and corporations are both responding in their reflexive and often inappropriate ways thereby making matters much worse. The upsurge of outright government repression and covert corporate tyranny will inevitably push We the People to a point of revolution.
In the meantime, while those of us who have been there done that are patiently waiting, this whole worldwide drama just keeps getting crazier by the day.
EGOs — LOTs of the Craziest EGOs Now Running The AsylumBut why is the world seemingly getting crazier than ever, especially during 2015?
What else should be expected when the craziest among are really running the asylum. By the way all of those crazymakers are completely immersed in their out-of-control EGOs!
It really does all come down to ego … egoism … egotism … egocentricity … egotistical orientation, etc.
With this type of abiding orientation toward the world and life, there is rarely any pursuit of truth among many in Western societies. Subsequently, many become literally addicted to deception. When so many are addicted to deception, they can be mind-controlled and brainwashed into accepting a highly substandard and decadent way of life. Through the instigation of fear the same people can be stampeded into wars and conflicts, battles and skirmishes. And so they are … just about any place paid mercenaries are needed to impose democracy at the barrel of a gun.
When a large group of egocentric people are concentrated in one country say like the USA, what that one group does or doesn’t do, can have far-reaching effects. Especially when the leaders of the powerful countries are so taken over by the lower impulses and urges of the ego will things get completely out of hand like they did in ’15.
Moreover, because the American people have not taken sufficient responsibility for the state of their nation, and are in deep denial about the true condition of the world which they have contributed to, they have become a serious part of the problem instead of the solution. They quite precariously allow their government to use their tax dollars to wage unprovoked wars in their name. Then they vote for the same murderers and thieves year after year always expecting something to change.
Talk about “Addicted to Deception”!
How can things not be crazy when so many people are totally addicted to deception? This is a crucial question. Every reader ought to pose this question to themselves while in deep mediation. They should also deeply contemplate the ramifications associated with their own state, particularly the degree to which they, too, might be thoroughly addicted to deception.
