The pyramid is an example of what we are.  It is the shape of what we are. It is the lesson that must be seen and understood.  It is the wisdom of the ages passed down for us to hold.  So when did we forget this wisdom and why are there so many without it?

Take and examine the number of souls on this planet.  If you look at 50 years ago, you would see far fewer souls, as a matter of fact, only half.  If you look 200 years ago, you would again see far less souls, as only one quarter of those here now were sharing this Earth.  But if you chart the long history of human population since the end of the last ice age, the number of returning souls and the adding of new souls would have a very consistent and uneventful accumulation for the first 11,500 years of modern history (post ice-age) and we would see that the old souls returning would outnumber the entering new souls by a wide margin. This should have made it easy to live as the opportunity for wisdom was in abundance.

As the population grew ever so slowly, there were always many old souls within the population and for the longest time they outnumbered the entering new souls greatly. So this must have produced a time of great wisdom and learning.

Modern day does not reflect the days of old when the old souls outnumbered the new souls.  One would be surprised, and find difficult to digest the image of what the population explosion has done for the new soul to old soul ratios.  What was once in ancient (and somewhat recent times) a ratio largely in favor of the old soul, has flipped and now old souls are greatly and dangerously out numbered.

During the first 3,000 years since the end of the last ice age (10,000-7,000 BC) the same 5-10 million souls were long time returns and so for these many years, the number only doubled making the number of new souls in each generation few and far between.  This must have been a time of great learning and understanding as the old souls accrue wisdom and experience to share.

In the next 2,000 years (7,000-5,000 BC) the population doubled again to 20 million.  And again, each generation carries the slightest of burdens by the entering new souls and they should easily be able to maintain a stable environment for learning.

And then, the following 1,500 years (5,000-3,500 BC) saw the next doubling of our population to 40 million.  The numbers are still clearly in favor of the old souls as each generation would only see ½ million new souls.  This would mean 20 old souls were here for every new one being added.

It was not until another 1,500 years (3,500-2,000 BC) had gone by until the population doubled again to 80 million, but continuing a favorable ratio of old souls to the new being added.  And for thousands of years, the new souls were delicately and moderately peppered into the population.

So finally we reach the Greek philosophers at 500 BC and another doubling has occurred to 160 million and over a 1,500 year period again, a slighter number of souls are being added to a comparatively strong base of older souls.

Then at the time of Christ, in the first century AD, the population just 500 years later stood at 250 million.  Even still, the number of old souls remains strong relative to our current age.

Once again, 1,500 years later during the time of Martin Luther (1,500 AD), the population again doubled to 500 million. The adding of souls has been steady for nearly 12,000 years.  Less than 1 in 10 of the souls today is from before the time of Luther.  But during this time (in 1,500 AD), 1 in 10 souls were over 6,000 years old and 1 in 3 was a soul from the time of Pythagoras.

But then, only 300 years later, we saw yet again another doubling to 1 billion souls at the beginning of the 19th century.   This is about 1 ½ million souls per year in a population of more than 500 million.  You would think this a good situation but remember, in the past the old souls were indeed older souls and the brand new souls may be few in percentage, but they are amongst a fast growing population of newer souls as the older of the old souls become exponentially less in number and ratio.

Just more than 100 years later we see another doubling of the population to 2 billion souls around the crash of the stock market in 1929.  This is 10 million new souls per year amongst the younger souls barely older then they are.  The situation is becoming quite reversed at this time and the old souls are beginning to encounter a number problem.

It was only 50 years later when we saw the number of souls double again from 1925-1975 and adds 40 million new souls per year when half the number of souls have only been around for 100 years.  This is not a number problem it is a number catastrophe.  We are well on our way of doubling again in the 50 years up to the year 2025.

What was once as nice even ramp up of souls to add and cultivate has turned into a battle for the old soul to keep ancient wisdom alive during this age of technology and ignorance.  Today in 2016, only 1 in 10 souls have been here more than 500 years.  Only 1 in 5 souls has been around since before the American Revolution.  The table has turned on the old soul so much that only 1 in 28 souls has been around since the time of Christ.  Finally, of those from the first half of our 12,000 years since the end of the ice age (the first 20 million living the first 6,000 years) there is only 1 for every 350 souls on this Earth today.

I do not know who the new or who the old soul is, but I do know if one subscribes to the reincarnation theory, what should not be lost on them is the monumental task of keeping the wisdom of the ancients alive in our world.  It is truly a time when such knowledge can be lost to an explosive like growth of new souls without the wisdom and compassion yet to be learned.  It is the burden of the old soul to be here for the new.  It is the opportunity for both to have purpose and life, such is the universe.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood?

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty


My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It


Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.
