Been congitatin' lately about the pandemic fear and infinite suppositions happening around 2012. Suppose it is a greater, more wonderful point in time than any of us imagine?
In the spirit of yesterday's post, suppose 2012 is actually better than we presently imagine with our world view based in the miserable reality we've been living for about 30 (or 2500) years? I'm not saying that it won't be difficult for some people in some places, but why are we going Hollywood in our expectations of a Big Deal? Often the most important things happen right under the eyes of the living who do not comprehend what's happening. And there are things happening, whether the news reports it or not.
I mean, how many REALLY got who the Christ was when He walked? How many actually know and honor Divine Mother in Her global aspects, including Beings like Ammachi who actually embody miraculous Divine Power, Love, Wisdom, and Intelligence? This is the 21st century, which if we are to extrapolate hypotheses, is in fact the century of "Divine Mother."
If there is truly a global awakening going on, then it must transcend local boundaries, assumptions, and belief systems. What we seek to experience is not within the current popular philosophies, since if it were, we wouldn't be living the insanity we view thanks to global media that exploits lurid imagery for profit. And violence is lurid, and it sells, big time. What we collectively seek is beyond the old imagery, old symbols, old interpretations, old way of viewing reality.
We're still in the larger collective unconscious "field" of paranoid violence and manufactured separateness (thanks to economic models), but there is also the widespread experience that we are somehow detached from getting absorbed into the imagery that seeks to sell us whatever. This dissociation from the pandemic imagery is a means to find the front edge of our evolution in viewing this entire phenomenal reality from a different angle of vision, free from fear, vanity, desire, and the need to act or react to the strong sensations that pervade this plane of existence.
We're in the heart of a great transition, where there are thieves and liars on the loose, millions of people chattering what they think they know in order to make a buck. Because fear and glamor always sell the goods, there are more beings selling fear and glamor than other things less glamorous and arousing.
This is helping all truth seeking Souls learn Divine discrimination, the discernment that knows the Real from the unreal, Light from darkness, Immortality from that which is transitory. This is the time to sharpen our discrimination, and notice the details of the forms that allow us to function in a healthy manner amidst the generic chaos.
Back to the topic. If 2012 does actually mark a shift in existence, it will happen on any number of levels simultaneously which can be perceived in any number of ways. There is no point in history where things happen on a specific day and time except viewed locally. The larger shifts, whether in a quarter millennium, half millennium, millennium, or turning of a great Age, occur over a number of years. It takes about 72 years to shift one degree of a Great Age, so go figure.
We are the mid-wives and mid-husbands of an era we can barely imagine, but which will be upon us within 4000 days. That's less than 100,000 hours. All of humanity will regard time, space, matter, energy, light, life, and everything else from a completely different understanding than anything we've known up to now, including our parents, grandparents, and ancestors dating back 300 generations. But all of evolution is incremental, except for those unusual leaps in the process. Perhaps 2012 is one of those moments. Perhaps it's just part of a larger process.
Take a moment to imagine the vastness of the evolutionary process. Then contemplate that in Nature, it takes a long time for a plant to sprout from seed, develop stalks and leaves, then to put forth a flower. From that moment, the flower becomes a fruit and/or a "perfect form," in either case creating a seed that furthers the Archetypal pattern of that life form. That's the process by which all life on this planet evolves, at least in the plant, animal, and human realms. And humanity is about to flower in a BIG way.
From observing how Nature works, it seems as if we do what we must while assimilating what we must while enduring what we must we come to our ultimate manifestation. Perhaps if we emulate Nature and do what we must while learning what we must while practicing the so-called "Spiritual virtues" we will develop according to our best potential, and enter the New Era in perfect attunement with who we are, doing what we are to do, Being our Being in the New Era. It's all an experiment in Truth, so why not try?
Remember, time and space distinctions will matter little in our new way of viewing energy, light, time, space, and matter as the years, decades, and centuries move on. Time is the field within which we perceive movement through space and experience. The doors of perception have been blown open. It's our job to break on through to the other side and welcome the Guest.
