I have been afraid of bringing on the 2012 prophecies by our continual infatuation with the subject. I believe we create our world by our thoughts and subsequently the words we speak. I'm not really sure what the prophecies say will happen to us, but whatever it is, we shouldn't be waiting for it as if it real.
I have the same fears about global warming and the destruction of the planet by our own carelessness. Bill McKibben has done an incredible job warning us of what we have done and the consequences of it. But now we need to focus on what we can do and not on what has already been done.
Probably not many reading this will remember the Harmonic Convergence, but it was a time in late 1987 when the planets aligned in a particular configuration. At that exact time, groups all over the world gathered to imagine world peace. It was a very powerful gathering. Within just over a year's time the Berlin Wall, a very material demonstration of the split between East and West Germany, and on a more symbolic level, the split between Communism and Democracy, began to crumble and come apart as people literally tore pieces out of it. For 28 years, the Berlin Wall separated and intimidated the German people. But the strength of a collective visioning meditation proved to too much for the thick wall.
The power of thought in an individual is strong, but add many thoughts and the power multiples exponentially. My wish is that people's thoughts could focus on the positive, imagine our earth recovering from the harm humans have done, imagine the best of what's likely to happen late this year. I like to think that when the prophecy comes to fruition, it will mean a renewal in personal spirituality and kindness and joy throughout communities all over the world. If we all focus on good things, good things will happen. Happy thoughts, everyone..
