December 21st 2012 has already passed in Samoa. Contrary to Hollywood and Internet Crazies, the turning of 21st December doesn’t take place in the Western world first
So it is already 21.12.12. and yep, I am still breathing and there is no major asteroid or planet colliding with ours as I type this… so we can all go and buy Christmas presents and write our New Years resolutions.
On a serious note though, the whole Apocalypse thing has got me thinking.
First it was the whole year 2000 ‘Millennium bug’ and now the whole 2012 Mayan Apocalypse. They have both been used as excuses to get everyone on this ‘end is nigh’ dark ‘end of days’ vibe. Is it because we watch so many dramatic movies that we believe the hype and get high off the drama?
Essentially the Mayans were very spiritual people and from what I have read, more evidence point towards December 21st (Winter solstice) being the mark of a change into a new era, a chance for humanity to progress to a higher level of consciousness. This sounds way more interesting and positive! If I’m going to go with any idea, it’s this one.
They talk about light bearers, people who can channel this powerful positive energy and accelerate the shift in consciousness. So, instead of freaking out every time there is a natural disaster and looking for evidence for the end of the world and some kind of disastrous event that will wipe us all off the face of the Earth. Let us consider what we can do while we are here to make the world a better place.
After all, if we are only going to kill one another, pollute our planet and live our lives selfishly, greedily working boring stressful jobs that we hate, then why be here in the first place? The world might not have ended today, but we will die one day, so we should make life worth living!
Let’s use this December 21st to really take control of lives and live fearlessly! Do what you love. Love one another. Give to others. Create. Travel. Learn. Live!
