All the horns are clanking and the alarms hooting here at the Karma Economics Desk ever since reading that Nobel Peace prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi has been released from her 15-year captivity in Burma (Myanmar).
The horns are a-clanking in celebration, of course, for the courageous Suu Kyi, who has paid an enormous personal price for being the voice of hope of her people under the yoke of a military regime. Aside from being held in captivity by the same junta that assassinated her father, the 65 year-old Suu Kyi has not seen her London-based children in 10 years (although it now seems they have been allowed to travel to Myanmar to see her), and was not allowed to assist to her British husband’s funeral in 1999. All this for having won the general elections in 1990, much to the junta’s consternation.
So, why are the alarms a-hooting, then? Because this isn’t just another piece of news; the release of the Dame, Aung San Suu Kyi, is an event of huge karmic import, especially in the current flow of internal energies pushing out, which has been the tonic of 2010 as covered by this desk here and here. When the documented news of her release reached the KE Desk, we could almost feel the rumble of the karmic earthquake coming forth from this tiny Asian country. But this time it wasn’t accompanied by the corrupt boquet of bad karma; quite on the contrary, it smelled as beautiful and inspiring as the Dame herself.
The timing and nature of this event has karmic symmetry written all over it. Karma is a system that seeks equilibrium, is tickled pink by symmetry and enjoys working with archetypes because it’s all about getting the lesson across. We have already noted that not all internal energies pushing out and emerging had to be dark or destructive, it just seems that way because they have been the most prevalent… until now.
As pointed out by clif high at Half Past Human, Aung San Suu Kyi has emerged to embody a new collective consciousness that is itself an emerging energy waiting to take form. Such a person at such a time can have an impact that reaches far beyond the borders of a single country. How is China going to feel about having an archetypical icon bloom in its backyard? As cuddly as with other Nobel Prize winners such as the Dalai Lama and Liu Xiaobo, or even better?
But some things are bigger even than the Party itself, even though they start so small as to appear insignificant. They will try to put this genie back in the bottle, and may even succeed, but the damage is already done. The Flow is with her, and soon she will be bigger than life.
