Terms like "sustainability", "green buildings", polar thaw, bio-diesel, ozone hole, patriot act, and global warming have entered our vocabulary. We don't have to wait for 2012 to see the death of the past...evidence is quite clear already that the old world is sinking fast.
The question is less whether the world is ending, and more, what are we going to do when it does?
You won't find any gloom and doom scenarieos here. I do not evision 2012 as the righteous comeuppance for a species gone wild, nor as the historic prophecies carved in stone. I don't see it as utopia, either. Does anyone want to argue that?
Instead I see 2012 as a huge crossroads in history, a key choice in evolution, a rare window of opportunity that appears to have been forecast in ancient days. Will we emerge from the dark ages and to write a new ending to humanity's countless variations on short sightedness, self sabotage and greed? Will we quit pretending to be so much less than we are? Will we step up to fulfill our awesome potential as a species? Will we seize this unique moment and finally haul ourselves towards something infinitely more satisfying than replaying the same historical mistakes over and over and over. Aren't you tired yet? Come on, it's so very tiresome, especially for me, the Phoenix....I continue to arise from the ashes....to return to the ashes....to arise from the ashes.....it would be great to arise once again to something wonderous...a new Age of Awareness.
If you really think about it, every moment in life is a crossroads. All of us are on our spiritual journey, and there are different key peiods, crux points, destiny crossroads where our reality becomes more malleable and we tap into a larger stream of awareness through our development...constant evolution.
Today, right now, so many massive challenges face us today, global climate change, droughts, floods, and food shortages, the preservation of natural resources, the erosion of human rights, that we must face it, and awaken to the fact that this is our crossroads in evolution folks! Perhaps for the first time in history, it doesn't seem to be the provincial dilemma of one nation, but the complex quandary of the whole fucking world.
It's easy to see why futility sets in, because these dilemmas cross all borders folk....it's not a black problem, it's not a mexican problem it's not a Japanese problem or a Iranian problem....it's a human problem. We have no world council capable of putting aside it's differences to unite the disparate factions and come up with viable longstanding resolution.
I was asked by a reader, if I had the power to save humanity, would I.
I thought about this long and hard. Now I come from a large family. I have 3 brothers, and 2 sisters, all of which do not communicate with each other, or myself for reasons I will not go into. The point is that I can't even bring my fucking family together, what gives me hope for humanity coming together?
All that said, I know everything has it's purpose.
In the past year I have sensed a nascent spirit arising within me, a spark of a kind I haven't seen since the I left California 4 years ago. It's a yearning to challenge the status quo. To refashion basic existence. We need to wake up, and quit pretending to be so much less than we are. We need to go Dr. Phil...and get real.
It saddens me to see the youth of today not even bothering with this broken world I spend so much of my life railing against.
They're already in the future.
As world seems to darken, in fact, the revolutionary impulse only seems to gain traction. Once you start to wake up, you begin to see lies and distortions all around you. You see the lies of our "leaders" get so patently absurd. I can't believe some of the things that are said, and allowed, and we the American people, well not we...you the American people allow this...I mean you actually ask for it. You are now a caricature.
For civilization to transform, human nature itself has to change. Our hunger must be for miracle, not limitation transformation, not repression. We must challenge presumed distinction between "us" and "them", between the living and the dead, between all polarities striving to find each other after centuries of separation. We must see us as one.
In the Age of Aquarius our commonality leads us forward. The time is now for the sleeping masses of consciousness to awaken and turn the tide on centuries of karma and of the corrupt few lording over the many.
Therein lies the crossroad of my journey, because the overarching bias of my awakening was that something marvelous is contained in the core of every human being, whether they know it or not, that we each have massive soul force to turn the world around and that every moment offers us a gateway to a fuller inhabitance of our true nature, our lives and our planet.
If the Maya civilization is right, and humanity is transforming on an unprecedented scale, then my little post may inspire you to Arise from the Illusion and find some thing transformative and profound in you so that the cycle ends with you. And if enough of us do that, who knows, maybe the world will change.
We all face crossroads throughtout our journey. Some people recognize the signs and some do not.
If you've read this far, then you too are at your crossroads....what will you decide?
