This is a huge opportunity for participants, observers and world leaders. In our different ways we can choose whether to be judgmental, passive, narrow-minded, hysterical, aggressive, confrontational or interfering. Alternatively, we can feel and show compassion for everyone precipitating or caught up in the unrest, we can try to see the bigger picture and, very importantly, to recognise the karma that is being rebalanced in the different countries and from this, how far or not, to be involved.
If those choices are based on good intent and wisdom, the ascension process of humanity and the planet will be, comparatively, much more comfortable, even enjoyable. The alternative does not mean ascension will not occur, but it will come more through conflict than through harmony, initially at least.
