If everyone that was living on Earth at this moment would turn their face up to the sky and look, they would see many things that would seem were never there before. They were always there but were just not noticed by many because the collective consciousness was not giving their attention to the sky.
Do not let social constructs keep you from doing what you feel a passion to do within yourself. Many societies are very youth oriented and as people age, they feel as if they are becoming valued less by others while in other societies, older people are respected, treated well and sought out for wisdom and guidance. Rise above the views of the society you live in which may be quite limited and faulty in its thinking. See the value in yourself and in others because every single human has incredible value to The One, to All that Is as they are all a part of All that Is.
