You are participating, willingly or not, in a sweeping change that is much bigger than you are. Everyone who was born within a few years of you is undergoing similar changes now, and although the details may differ from one person to another, the process remains the same. Outmoded beliefs, behaviors and systems are being swept clean now, making this a powerful time of loss and cleansing that prepares you for a once-in-a-lifetime transformation.
Although this can be an uncomfortable process, it's important to realize that the more you cling to your outmoded beliefs or behaviors, the harder it will be for you to make the necessary changes. This is a permanent transformation: Things will never be the same as they've been until now. And you may not even be the one to initiate the changes; circumstances outside your control, such as floods, earthquakes, political changes or other events, may occur on a grand scale and force change in your life as well as in the world at large. Your most effective course of action is to accept the changes, to do the best you can with what you have and, as difficult as it is, to look forward instead of backward.
