Question: Can Saint Germain comment on the topic of communities? How will they look? Will we still have big cities, or will people live in smaller communities?
Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Estonia in 2018.
This is of course a very vast topic. In the age of community, as the Aquarian Age has been called, there will be many different types of communities that you can barely even imagine today. In terms of the question of big cities, there will be certain bigger cities and they will in many cases be dedicated to, for example, education or even a specific type of education. Some cities will be dedicated to spiritual education and others will be more worldly types of education. There will be some business centers but as we move deeper into the Golden Age, new forms of transportation technology will make it much easier for people to get around. This means that there will be a tendency for people to spread out – move away from the big cities with all of the problems they give and move into smaller communities that are much more on a human scale. You then will see communal, community-owned housing, where groups of people will come together for a specific purpose because they have a common interest. For example, you can see today that people who have a certain spiritual teaching they are following will move together and it will be easier for them to commute to their workplaces. There will also be a dispersion of businesses where instead of having the huge factories that you see today there will be much smaller units. In other words, there will be a tendency to go away from centralization which creates bigger and bigger units that lose any kind of human scale. People will move into smaller units more on the human scale so people can feel more at home, more connected. They will know each other better and many positive effects will come of people living in more close-knit groups instead of in the huge, very impersonal environments that big cities have become.
