A Meditator’s Answer to a Question about December 21, 2012
From what I have read, the December 21, 2012 date is based on a misinterpretation of Mayan astrology. It never did equate to our December 21 anyway.
From my own experience of this world, all things begin, have being and gradually change over time, disintegrate and are then reconstituted and become part of a potential new beginning. This applies to everything you can perceive. There are moments of awareness and there is what you can be aware of – from a single breath to planet earth and more.
In terms of December 21, 2012, on that day some things will end and others begin. Many things will be changing so slowly that it will seem as if they remain the same.
I think the idea of a catastrophe has been put out there to make people afraid. When people are afraid, it is easy to manipulate them and to gain power over them. Technology has made it possible to manipulate vast numbers of people almost instantly. That scenario is made possible because those people have become so busy that they have no time to clearly see what is going on. They are fearful, exhausted and unaware. ??The manipulators are often also manipulated and only marginally more informed than those they are influencing.
This whole cycle can be broken. It only takes a moment of clear awareness to start the awakening for individuals and the combined effect of individuals waking up is far greater than the sum of the parts. The effect of several people becoming aware is exponential.
This awareness, this waking up, is however deeper than thought alone. Simply coming to the logical conclusion of a thought pattern based on dodgy data is not enough. Also if your awareness is focused through conditioned views and desires, it’s like peering through a dingy rain-streaked window.
The only place to make a real difference is HERE and the only time is NOW. Start with sense/feeling your position and state of mind right now. You can learn to be more aware by opening up to your present moments with as little imposed judgement as you can.
There are time-honoured ways to help you do this. You can check out the options and find a way that works for you right now. The only note of caution I would suggest is that you do not allow yourself to become controlled by systems or let ego tell you that you are a better person by following them.
How does this relate to December 21, 2012? (A numerologist has been having fun with this one.) It appears that a few deluded beings have seen a way of making a profit out of countless other beings who have become less than aware over time. I have to admit some of the profiteers’ ruses have been spectacularly successful. I too have been drawn into the drama on occasions. I have cried tears at many a sad movie.
The digital universe is not much different from a vast movie screen and the ‘news’ we read and the broadcasted images we see are overwhelmingly ones of despair, fear and hopelessness. The images on the screen are manufactured and manipulated.
Conversely, when I look around me in real time, I see countless seeds of consciousness germinating in the sun of awareness.
You and your wife are good at making things happen. You have wonderful friends. You are at a time in your life when you have relative freedom.
Are you going to let other people’s negative interpretations of inaccurate data hold you back?
