The End of the Know-it-all

The times they are a changing.
Yes, you will be happy, and perhaps a bit anxious, to know that the time is coming.
It is the end.
The end.

Yes, no more do you have to look up to anyone, embracing some demeaning-to-self concept that you need someone to know better and more than you.
This is the end of an era
This is the end of the know-it-all.

Now, I'm not referencing a good teacher or mentor who can help guide a student towards his or her own answers. I'm talking about the know-it-all, those fancy folks who need to know more than you in order to use leverage to their advantage.

For so many eras - eons perhaps - we as a people have felt the need to look up to the "expert," the "leader" and the pious pundits who were glad to maintain such a lofty identity over the pubic. For so long, we have looked up "teary-eyed" as the public speaker, the President or the prophet spoke in great speech. For too long we have lowered our own esteme believing that someone else would hold and then grant us the answer, the pill or the edict we all needed.

But this is the mentality of the weakened and lazy mind. And it need not be. And it will not be.

Though we still wish to act like little boys and girls, hoping mommy and daddy will take care of us, we are finding this is not the way it is to be. Some white smocks are stained blood red. Some top government leaders mainly watch their own back as well as their friends' backs. Many fancy-dressed public speakers spout off their words followed by applause and a sales pitch. The promises of job security and homeland security reveal holes throughout.

And what is left after all the false idols fall and fail? What are you left with? You are left with you. You and your thoughts, your intuition, your discernment, divinely given ... directly to you.

The time is coming very soon, when you will see ... this is all you need, and this is all you have ever needed.
