After the Gold Rush is a song about Graduation by Neil Young. In the song, Neil paints a picture of an end-times celebration where the "silver seed of nature" are flown off a dying planet to a "new home in the sun."


The song references a Connection Event experienced, presumably, by a soldier in the middle of a war. Presumably, the connection event was the inspiration for the revelations expressed in the song.

While quite beautiful, the song nevertheless contains Old Energy Archetypes of Judgment and exclusion. As noted in the BOLIFE, graduation is a celebratory event open to all.
