This passage is from David G. Myer's The American Paradox: Spiritual Hunger in an Age of Plenty:< [p.293-293]
So we face that fork in the road. We have, as Solzhenitsyn said in concluding his commencement address at Harvard,The Canadian group, Walk Off The Earth, has a new song on their R.E.V.O. (reach every victory outright) entitle These Times. In the chorus, they sing"reached a major watershed in history, equal in importance to the turn from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. It will demand from us a spiritual blaze; we shall have to rise to a new height of vision, to a new level of life, where our physical nature will not be cursed, as in the Middle Ages, but even more importantly, our spiritual being will not be trampled upon, as in the Modern Era."This ascension is similar to climbing to the next anthropological stage. No one on earth has any other way left -- but upward. Those who take this upward road -- those who live remembering the future -- will fulfill the ancient prophecy of Isaiah:"You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in."
...'Cause these times // Never seen days like these
That's true. These are special days. Supercharged with spiritus sanctus. We are now entering the Integral Age, the Age of Fulfillment, the Promised Day. The world is shrinking and we can no longer cling to bygone beliefs and knock-kneed notions such as nation.
Not everyone is ready or awake. Or else, they're saying "I just don't want it enough, I guess."
As if any kind of favorable future will just happen by itself and land plop! in our laps!
