No, "the feeling" has nothing to do with that, is not all about doom and gloom either. Of course on one level being the materialistic level anyone can see how things are taking shape on the physical world and the world is not in a good state or place right now. That much is obvious. But this feeling is more than just what is happening down here, on the physical level.
Like Mii just posted there, I'm experiencing this feeling as a consciousness/energy wave that is practically having this summing effect, i know exactly what she means by that. I can see it in others too. I for example haven't been dormant lately, but everything still switched up a gear in the last couple of weeks when I received the call into action so to speak- it's as if it's not about practising any more but really putting these awareness skills into action, or we're about too be very soon. If you are already energy sensitive and astral aware, then it is these levels which this is def being felt on first.
