As 2012 came to a close and the New Year dawned, so, too, for many people, came a new hope.
2012 – particularly, the 21st December - was touted, for decades previous, as a time of either cataclysm or catalyst to a new era of peace and cooperation, depending on who you listened to or which authors you read.
In truth, nothing of any great spiritual significance occurred on the 21st. There was no ‘cosmic moment’; no Galactic alignment; no balancing of the ‘divine feminine’… no rapture… no earthquakes… no collision with Planet X/Nibiru.
It was, to all intents and purposes, just another day.
Those who placed great significance on that day may tell you otherwise; particularly if they sold a lot of books and seminar seats in the run-up, imparting secrets of how people could attune themselves to receive the angel’s blessings, or whatever other spiritual gifts they were touting…
There are ‘spiritual teachers’ who remain at least outwardly convinced (and, I suspect, have fooled even themselves into believing) that there was a ‘cosmic moment’ and a new, spiritual energy has entered humanity.
One prominent angelologist insists that 31% of humanity have transcended to the fifth dimension, as well as 57% of animals – no doubt, including some particularly friendly wasps.
She also infers that the outbreaks of ‘flu and norovirus is directly related to the ‘purification process’ of this new energy. Of course, the truth is that these sicknesses appear every single winter.
Although it may have seemed as though these people were offering a chance of salvation to their loyal fans, what they were actually doing was exploiting their fears.
As many as one in ten people were afraid of the eventualities that the 21st December, 2012, could bring about. That fear didn’t just fall out of thin air and into their minds; it was, like most irrational terrors, taught… or bought.
Now, it’s 2013 and we should all resolve to reject further ‘prophecies’, however well-intentioned they may appear on the surface. We need to put an end to collective superstition and start living without fear.
That’s not to say that we can’t make transformational changes to improve the world, but we can begin or reaffirm that process today – right now – by adopting a more positive and cooperative mind-set. We don’t have to wait for some mystical set day in the future for conditions to become right.
It is right, now.
It is right, now.
Make 2013 your greatest year, then 2014 even better… and so on…
