The End of the World as We Know it?
There’s been quite a lot of hoopla over the “end” of the Mayan calendar, and the other prophesies and the date of December 21, 2012, tomorrow, the Winter Solstice for us here in the northern hemisphere. I heard someone this morning say the planets will all be aligned, which happens every 524 gazillion years, (OK, I’m not sure how often, but it was huge), and the end of a yuga cycle, the beginning of a new one.
Is there really anything occurring that is extraordinary? Has the culture been shifting? Becoming more aware? In some ways, I think it has. People are more aware of diet, exercise, and the effect they have on their body…..to a point. They are open to other cultures, religions, activities, ways of thinking…to a point.
Yet, there is still a victim consciousness. What if we could all be responsible not only for the good, but also the bad and the ugly in our lives? What if determining whether something is good or bad is actually just an interesting point of view? What if we could be OK with changing our minds based on the energy of the situation and circumstance at the moment? What if we could say, OK, cool, what else is possible here? What if we did not worry about being wrong (or right), but rather, choosing to move forward with a different choice and seeing if that works better?
Should we be more aware of our thoughts? Yes! Are things going to manifest more quickly? Perhaps they already are! Do we have an impact on our lives, our environment, the earth? Undoubtedly, yes! What can we do to contribute to greater consciousness, to be a contribution to our lives, our families, our neighbors, and our world? Live in awareness, respond rather than react, and practice kindness to all, including ourselves.
Be in gratitude. What else is possible? What would you like to create your next year to be like? What would you like to contribute to the world, to your friends, to yourself? Step into it, be that which will change the world, by being you. Authentically, fully, with awareness and potency!
Great Blessings to all as we choose greater conscious living!
