I have recently been introduced to a new word and existential concept – Kairos – which is an ancient Greek word meaning “the right or opportune moment”. Borrowing a description from author E.C. White, “in rhetoric Kairos is a passing instant when an opening appears which must be driven through with force if success is to be achieved.”
Kairos offers me a word to use to describe what I supremely believe to be true – the cosmos and all of humanity are in a moment in time when significant positive change can happen quickly – it is our right and opportune moment. Maybe this kairos is related to the 25,000 year celestial alignment anticipated by the Mayans that happened on December 21, 2012. Maybe it is related to Earth’s rapidly changing climate. What is clear to me is the undeniable need for change for all aspects of life on Earth, both on a macro level and on a micro level. Therefore, everything I am doing and will do is related to generating the necessary force to be successful and take maximum advantage of this very opportune moment. COME JOIN THE FORCE!
