Could the Whole World Be on Hospice?

We are at a very interesting time in human history at this time. Among the New Thought Movement, people call this the time of the Shift of the Ages. Many long-term time cycles – to the tune of 26,500+ years, are merging together and a great deal of love and light frequency is coming onto the planet.
