The Dawn of a New Era: December 21st

There are only a few days left before the big date.  Some people are wondering what to expect, others think that nothing will happen. They think that December 21st, 2012 will be just another “fluke” as the Y2K fiasco. However, most do not know that the Y2K phenomenon was averted because software engineers and computer technicians (I was one of them) were busy fixing and setting up the systems to prevent the catastrophe. Of course, they worked on the problem for a couple of years before the incident was supposed to happen. Coding and hardware were reconfigured. The fact is that by the time the year 2000 rolled over, we were ready!

Now, what makes the December 21st different is the fact that not only the Mayans marked this date as a critical one in Earth’s history but also the Aztecs, Egyptian, and other ancient civilizations. Moreover, most astronomers have admitted to the fact that there will be an unusual planetary alignment in our solar system on December 21st. Some geologists and other scientists say that such alignment occurs every 26,000 years and it brings about dramatic changes in climate and the Earth’s structure. Does this mean that we are about to face the end of the world? Well, yes and no.

We will face the end of the world as we know it so far but will be witnesses and participants of a wonderful rebirth of Earth. Earth is transmuting into a new state of being. It has been doing so for years – as a mother patiently undergoes the changes in her body for 9 to 10 months before giving birth. On December 21st, our mother Earth will give birth to itself in a new form. Think of it as a caterpillar turning into a wonderful butterfly. Thus, yes, it will be the end of the world as we know it but the beginning of a new one. It is up to us all to make of this new world a much better one than the one we are leaving behind.

Some people have predicted that part of this new Earth transformation is a shift in polarity, which will bring about between 30 hrs to three days of total darkness and lack of electricity. I do not like darkness and I am definitely not looking forward to this part of the rebirth. However, after that period of darkness, the sun will shine again and light will return to our lives. I believe that what it is most important to do during the time of darkness is try to be together with our loved ones and keep calm. Afterwards, when we emerge from the darkness (which I believe will also be caused by the planetary alignment since Jupiter or Venus will align perfectly with Earth, thus causing a total eclipse worldwide), our environment might be quite different and we might begin to perceive life from a different prism. It is then when we will have the opportunity to mend the wrongs that we have done to Earth and on Earth or, choose to follow the path of destruction that we have forged so far. It is like we are getting a second chance to be the best that we can be not just as individuals but as a community of beings.

Therefore, don’t worry so much about what will happen on December 21st but rather focus on what you will become after you emerge. What are we going to make out of our new world and environment? In fact, those of us who grew up before the Internet and personal computers might be better prepared to survive and lead our younger generations to a new beginning. We can help them learn the basics and survive for a while without the comforts and convenience of today’s technology. Of course, we will build up the technology once again but this time, we must be more careful about the way we use it and what we sacrifice for it.

Anyway, we will know soon enough, some earlier than others considering that in some parts of the world, December 21st is coming one day earlier than in the western hemisphere. For them, “D-day” is on Thursday!

Embrace this new opportunity to define yourself, life, and values anew. The world will only end if we choose to destroy it.

Be A Shepherd

This year is a special year not just because of the Mayan calendar but because there are many things going on in the world, many changes in several countries. Thus, most of us are curious about where all this might be leading. The mainstream media has dedicated to offer us mostly trivial news and shows. Therefore, many of us have turned to books, independent media, and the Internet for valuable information.

While browsing the Internet, YouTube, and some forums, I have realized that many people are searching for answers to fundamental questions about life, our existence, the future. There are many conspiracy theories, authors and speakers writing or producing videos about the changes that are happening, visitors from space, spiritual awareness, the economy, theology, science, and other topics. Some of them check out, others not so much. However, I have seen in many forums, including comments on YouTube and others, people who “fall in love” with the speaker and take everything that person says at face value.

I don’t want you to hang on my every word or anyone else’s. My articles or essays are my way to challenge you to use your own discernment and find the truth within you and on your own.

When we take everything or most of what someone else’s tells us at face value, we take the risk of giving away our power and rights to those who seek to manipulate and control us for their own benefits and hidden agenda. Thus, we should question everything. We should always seek corroboration of the facts presented through independent evidence and close scrutiny of independent sources of information. If necessary, we should do our own research. Find out different opinions or analysis by people who are experienced in the subject at hand and have no vested interest in the venue and material. We should read, read, read. Explore, expand our mind and learn to look at things from different angles. Have fun playing the “devil’s advocate” in forums and yourself. Through this practice, it will become easier for you to discern the wheat from the shaft. You will not be easily manipulated and controlled by others.

In today’s world, where there are many people trying to pull you in different directions and profit from your vulnerabilities and need to believe in something, it is paramount for you to exercise your power of discernment and listen to your instincts. In the end, there are only two beings that you can trust absolutely: God (or your concept of a supreme intelligence and creator) and yourself.

Consequently, question everything, do your own research to corroborate or dispute the facts presented, and listen to your intuition. The truth is within you. The answers have been within you all along. Don’t let anyone tell you what to think and what to believe. Own yourself.

Until next time . . .
