We humans are living on this Earth at a time of great change. It's been gaining momentum for some time and has many feeling deep fear about what is coming. All this talk about the end of the world, mostly due to the day the Mayan people ended a calendar many moons ago has raised the question globally. I've wondered myself about the meaning and while I don't know anything for sure, I also know no other human knows anything about this 'for sure'. Only Creator and all who stand behind us in the Spirit world are privy to the true answer, while we humans shape a perspective based on what we feel or what we've been shown.
The universe works in cycles, as do we. Seasons work in cycles, women's moontime works in cycles, we grow in cycles (infant, youth, adult, elder), there are astrological cycles, and cycles of life and death. All cycles mean change, and change oftentimes means fears surface as the old falls away to make way for the new. This is simply the end of a cycle on Earth from where I sit. It's been happening for awhile already like a momentum of heart opening energy gaining speed, with this date as a marker point perhaps for everything coming to a head and the people standing up for themselves and their beliefs.
Spirit has shown me for years now over and over again that my soul will leave my body here when I am 84 years old. That may sound crazy to some but it's my reality. I used to think it sucked actually because I have spent most of my life not particularly wanting to be here in this body on this earth. I'm not sure why I've been shown this, perhaps so that I sucked it up and kept putting one foot in front of other, or maybe because I needed to know I would live through this 'end of the world stuff'? What I can tell you is I finally feel excited to be here and live my life!
Many people from many cultures have some form of ancient knowledge about this time of change on Earth. I believe our souls chose to be here now, especially those who care about Mother Earth, the animals, and the next generations. Which is why I think we are being pushed out of our comfort zones to move past our fears, speak up and do what we agreed to come here to do. Basically to get our heads out of our asses, quit watching 'reality tv' and buying more 'stuff' while we turn a blind eye to what is really going on.
There is a Buddha saying that comes to mind that I feel really fits these times we are living through: "Three things cannot be long hidden, the sun, the moon, and the truth". Truth is what is surfacing now. All the dark within us and the world is coming to light. It's time. We have allowed ourselves to be lied to and controlled by our governments and the powers who run the world, for far too long but now the lies are surfacing and we are forced to no longer go along like robotic sheep while we standby and watch. We have come not to fight, but to take a stand for whatever we feel passionate about.
I mean we've got some crazy ass stuff going on here on this planet, it's become so unbalanced and out of control. There are many humans starving on Earth and no mouth should be hungry; we would be led to believe our drug industry is actually helping us when for the most part is making us more sick; we continue to allow the raping and poisoning of Mother Earth as government continues to pull the wool over the sheeps eyes so to speak; we kill animals for fun or from a place of fear without a second thought, as if they don't have a right to be here? (God made them just like he made us); humans are bought and sold daily in slavery rings; our food is being manipulated and poisoned so we get sick in order to fuel the pharmaceutical industry (to even call most of what we eat 'food' and most pharmaceuticals 'medicine' is beyond bizarre; we have organized war that costs about the same amount it would cost to feed the starving. I could go on but I won't. The point is, we have come to a breaking point in history and we get to be here for it!! How cool is that?
Sometimes I think about what those in the Spirit World see as they watch us. I'm pretty sure Creator/God/Source or whatever you believe in, doesn't see lines on the Earth saying this belongs to me and this belongs to you, and you can't cross this line unless you follow the 'rules'. I'm pretty sure they see souls and the spirit of our hearts in humans and not skin color or how or where we pray (if you pray). I'm pretty sure that Earth is the most toxic planet in the solar system and the only reason it is so, is because it is inhabited by humans who's egos have gotten a little out of control, ok, alot. And I'm pretty sure no one is coming to save us except us.
It's my belief (and I am well aware not everyone shares in my belief and that's a-o-k with me!) that the way forward is one of heart, and that we will see peace on this earth when each and every one of us makes a commitment to find peace inside ourselves. This is going to take work., by way of self awareness, practicing forgiveness (of self first), kindness, finding what brings us joy, acceptance of ourselves therefore others, and love, love, love. The more we become aware of our own egos and face the dark side of our humanness (which we ALL have) and embrace that part of us versus fueling that part of us, we slowly get there, layer by layer. If there are shake ups in your life, loss or forced change, it is there to push your soul to live up to your promise and when we begin to live our lives aligned with our souls, things start to feel better and get easier to handle.
I believe the way forward lies in looking back at the Ancestors and how they understood that everything on the Earth was connected. They understood how to live simply and that the Earth and Creator provided what was needed. They respected all living things and had a deep connection with the Spirit World through drumming, dancing, ceremony and prayer. Things got all messed up and now here we are.
There is a planetary alignment that will take place on December 21, 2012 (winter solstice) which marks the end of the Mayan calendar. This is a true turning point in the Earth's history and the beginning of a new world. How do we want this world to look? That is the question and it's up to us.
Peace, Love and Change
