7pm The Axial Age  with Basil Groves - Are we moving towards an Axial Age ?"" 

The last Axial Age (800-200 BCE) was characterized by accelerating technological innovation, political instability, intensified warfare (as an outcome of general intercultural interaction intensification), and the emergence of new spiritual conceptualizations in 4 largely separated civilizations: Greece, Israel, India and China, including the rise of the “national” state and the spiritual traditions that continue to dominate Greek philosophy, monotheism, Hinduism and Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism. . 

Where are we today? - Martin Armstrong’s exploration of Cycles and how the  PI CYCLE fits into future outcomes -  is amplified by his massive computer data base and ability to manage equally vast portfolios - investment and otherwise. 

What are the implications of AxialAge2, as a globalising shaping phenomenon, particularly for the worldview, belief systems, financial cycles and forms of government now emerging.

“Search for the Inner Self- Barry Bowden"
It has been said the Higher Self has no cogniscience of the senses. 
How then do we come into contact with the silent speaker!
There has to be a rearrangement to our mode of living. 
We need to learn how to think and feel for our self. 

This brings the power of stillness - the gateway to the eternal

So wrote H. P. Blavatsky about the metaphorical road that leads to enlightenment
