How December 21, 2012 Marks the End

Regardless if we are conscious of it or not, we all are taking part in the momentous events that are taking place, including what transpires on December 21, 2012. *

Is the world going to end in some catastrophic event on December 21, 2012?  The world, as we know it, is ending but not necessarily in the way many people understand it.  Answers can not always be black or white.  The earth is undergoing dramatic changes as it experiences the end of a cycle of epic significance. At the same time, many forces are conspiring to destroy humanity.  Wisdom teachers would say that this is not a coincidence.  Interesting to note that the year 2012 marks 2000 years from the time that Jesus passed from boyhood to manhood and made a decision to serve and enlighten humanity.  It is definitely a time when we should be asking many questions, and not  be passive.

I do not believe the world will end on December 21, but I do believe that this time is of epic significance because it will determine a new direction for humanity.  We may experience an external event that will help us shift our consciousness or we may not be able to perceive an epic shift that could take place energetically.  What is certain is that we determine our probable future –for the better or worse—with what we collectively decide and hold in our minds and spirits.  This is a crucial time to wake up, to see the bigger picture and understand what is going on both levels—personally and collectively at a macro level.  Ultimately, the big picture is about choosing freedom or enslavement.  On a personal level, we can choose to be free of personal demons (e.g, fear, laziness, self-pity) and we can choose to help humanity be free (e.g, free of harmful policies that destroy health, safety, emotional well being, spiritual growth).

The direction of humanity is in the process of being solidified.  Our level of awareness and consciousness will determine where we go from here—a new time, an unknown path that is marked by the end of the Mayan calendar.

Some people will, consciously or unconsciously, discredit the truth about the importance of this time by saying that the world will end on 12/21, and then when the world does not end, the importance of what is really going on during this time will be discredited.  Truth is always being twisted in an effort to control us.  This is a time for all of us to keep asking questions, to become more awake because our level of consciousness will influence not only our future on a personal level but on a macro, earth level.

On the other side, there are people who are also focusing on the opportunities for “ascension” during this time.  To ascend, means to graduate—to learn and understand the current situation before we can graduate to the next level.  We need to understand and evolve on both levels—on a personal level and at a macro level.  If you have been doing your inner work, you’re ahead in the game.  You will experience greater personal freedom when you conquer or release personal demons (e.g., fears, selfishness) that keep you stuck, imprisoned.  You can evolve further by also understanding how forces are trying to control and harm humanity as a whole.  Take a step back and see the big picture and ask yourself if we are all gaining more freedom or less in our every day lives.  This is a crucial time where we need to choose freedom in our daily lives and in all aspects of our lives.  Even those who “ascend” will still need to continue to choose freedom.

Every level of awareness helps us to gain more freedom—freedom from darkness.  Just the act of being aware sheds light on darkness and diminishes its power.  This is true on every level—on a personal level and at a spiritual level.   Everything is interconnected.

We are all in this together.  Let us choose to create a new world, a better place that gives us the freedom to evolve as the powerful beings that we are.  Now more than ever, we need to live as warriors of the light and choose wisely, in the absolute best way we can.

*I want to give special thanks to my partner, Shane Sullivan, a truth seeker, a warrior of the light whose profound wisdom and insights inspired me to write this post about December 21, 2012.
