December 21st, 2012 is here–will we have a future? According to ancient Mayan prophecies (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show), the world may end, and we agree that change is coming, but we don’t think it has to do with an apocalypse, we think it has to do with personal change, and if you to want 2013 a year of GOOD change–for YOURSELF–try meditation.
We all know our birthday, but hospice doctors know something we don’t: They know our death day. It turns out our genes do too–researchers believe they have found a gene that regulates the time of day a person is likely to die (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this provocative interview).
The media hype about the end of the world has almost completely buried the true meaning of December 21, 2012. The result of what this dark public energy is doing is that, after the day passes without the world blowing up (which was NEVER predicted), people will breathe a sigh of relief and go back to their old ways. And, to make matters worse, they will, at best, laugh at what is really on offer.
Here, Michele Wehale takes us past the darksider hype and into the deeper meaning of this special moment. It mattered not only to the ancient Maya, but also to many indigenous peoples. Why? What did they know that we have forgotten?
I’m writing this on the Wednesday before the December 21, 2012 event. It has been disgracefully debased by all of the fake end-of-the-world hysteria spread by hucksters and nincompoops, but the real message of the event is still well worth contemplating. For my own part, I am going to spend a quietly meditative day reflecting on the power and mystery of the spiritual journey. It’s not that I believe that a mysterious galactic alignment will somehow enhance my energy; I don’t. But I know from nearly half a century of regular mediation that higher energies are real and vividly conscious, and are more than willing to engage with us. While this is always true, the intensity and depth of the experience increases when groups work together.
