Today is December 21, 2012. The infamous Mayan December 21, 2012.
More prophesies of the world’s end did not come true, and December 22, 2012 is waiting in the wings.
I’ve been telling people for years that this is not an “end”…but just the end of a cycle of over 5,000 years that will start itself anew. Others have said this is also the end of two different Hindu age cycles a grand cycle, and a shorter cycle (the Kali Yuga?). I’ve listened to many commentators on this subject and find it very interesting. The most interesting are the ones that say the earth is moving on its path as it always has and that indeed, new “ages” are here, but, well…they’re spiritual in nature. Or expose us to more light from the center of the galaxy. Some may feel a little different today. More tingly. Some may not. But we’re all still going to be here.
And we are.
What are your thoughts? What were your beliefs around this day? Did you take the day off work? Did you Google December 21, 2012 or Mayan Calendar this morning as you watched the news or read the paper, or got ready to face day one of the “new” Mayan countdown?
Forget what you “thought” would happen today. Instead, take 12/21/12 it as an opportunity for a new beginning. Heck, if you read this, take a moment to take a deep breath and say, “The world is still here, ‘same’ as it ever was. What can I do to take a new direction?”
Here at Nobody’s View we believe that we are all nobody, and that makes us somebody special. So, in that spirit, remember that you’re not the special Mayan priest. You’re not the oracle. You’re just a person who hit snooze once this morning, got out of bed, and are going into the office or getting the kids off to school here on December 21, 2012, the end of a Mayan cycle and the start of another.
Take the days as they come. Count the days to Christmas. Count down to the new year. Make a new dish to eat. Make it a date night. Leave your phone on silent. Watch a good foreign film. Practice Ho’oponopono like you really mean it. If that’s not for you, try yoga, tennis, or golf. Take up the guitar. Remember the good times and make a strong commitment to the future. Read a good book. Read a bad book. Read a book that you’ve heard is both (50 Shades of Grey?). If you love the ocean, hike in the mountains. If you’re a mountain person, take a dip. Read about the Mayans, or book a trip to Mexico and see the ruins for yourself.
The point is, the sun rose today. Some have said the earth is now cresting and more light and energy are bombarding us. Good stuff. Believe it? Great. Don’t believe it? Well, you can still make a new start. You can still shine a little light in your own world.
Folks, we’re all nobody. We’re all somebody. We’re what makes the world go ’round in our little corners of the vast universe.
This December 21, 2012, make the most of it. Oh, and here’s the secret. Do the same thing on December 22, 2012.
