2012. This is an auspicious year. For as long as recorded history has been speaking of it….2012 is the year we turn around. The whole planet in a Universe of planets.
What does that mean?
Without delving into the historical literature about prophecy, or the Bible about its revelations or the Mayan Calendar which ends in November of this year, we can all feel that something is different in our world. We feel it in our body, in our souls restlessness, in the headlines of the newspaper, in the climate, the medical revelations, in animal behavior, in the crumbling of some of our most sacred institutions and the disclosure that the governments here to protect us are doing just the opposite. Disillusionment has set into the groundwater of who we imagined we were as a species, as an individual on this planet, and we are all asking questions that are revolutionary.
And doesn’t’ revolution simply mean a re-evolution or a turning around? We are poised on re-evolution and this is the year that we will see a leap forward in human kinds evolution of soul, heart and body. This re-evolution is in fact what it will take to keep humans living on this planet and living here in harmony, not in conflict, pain and suffering.
We can just be on for the ride of our lives and hang on by our fingernails, hoping to survive the earthquakes of change that are mounting or we can move into the flow of this unprecedented change. We can resolve to bring forward in our lives all the awareness we can muster, all the faith that we can contain, all the courage we have an unlimited supply of, all the surrender and willingness it will take and we can do the changing necessary by our own hand. Then this will be the most exhilarating ride of our lifetime.
And now we face a NEW year and we traditionally take inventory of our lives and make what we call Re-solutions. Hmmm. I am thinking that I will not make my new year’s resolutions but will intend to make my next year a year of re-evolution.
Resolve is what has been behind all those resolutions of the past, those RE-Solutions that we apply to the New Year when we have not yet achieved what we resolved to do the year before. I have so many times, re-upped my commitment to loose weight, eat better, love more and save money. I have reinstated my exercise regime and most of the time do a good job by the time the end of the year rolls around but always fall short of my ideal in some way. So, then I have the GRACE of the new year to reestablish my commitment. 2012 needs something different than this level of commitment.
What if, just what if, we used this auspicious year to move to a new level of awareness and self-commitment? What if we took the Lakota Death Teaching and applied it to 2012? What if you asked yourself today, “If this year is the last year I have on Earth with those I love, how will I spend this year? What will I do differently? What is of true value in this world and what am I willing to do about it?”
When we drop the illusion that time is stretching out forever in front of us and adopt the awareness that time is an illusion, then we would all behave differently, every time the sun comes up and the sun sets, wouldn’t we?
AND there is one timeless truth. There is one vibrational frequency that is never altered and is limitless, miraculous and transformative. Love. Love is the only elemental, energetic, cross-cultural, cross, specie wealth there is that does not die, change or destroy. Can we say this about anything else? Is oil, gold, silver, diamonds or land eternal? Have we harnessed this energy called LOVE as a planet or a person?
This year needs to be different for all of us! Time does not stretch out in front of us endlessly. Our resolve needs to be filled with the concept of evolving our most authentic self into a full expression of what it is to be living on this planet now, with the people we live with, with the circumstances we have created. Nothing short of a willingness to fully evolve our un-evolved selves will do for this year of 2012.
What will that take? It will take everything you are willing to give up and let go of in order to make space for everything you are. This cannot be a year of simple solutions to clean the garage or learn to recycle. These are all daily commitments that are important, but not what 2012 is entirely calling you to do.
This is a year to ask yourself;
“What am I not doing in my life that I need to do today?
What am I not saying that I need to say now?
Who and what do I love that I do not fully love, including my precious self?
What does the world need from me?
What gifts and talents do I have to offer that I am squandering?
What makes me deliriously happy that I need to do right away?
What is my soul’s purpose on this planet?”
These are the only questions worth asking as we move into our re-evolution, our re-solutions worth and these are the perfect questions to enter a year that proves to rearrange our vibrational frequency, throw open the door to hearts that have been closed, take down the negative influences that keep our blue planet crippled with fear and this is the year that we will each, in our own way, realize on a cellular level that we are not alone in this world. This is the year that Love moves to the front of our lives in ways that we have yet to imagine.
So, my resolve for personal evolution this year is this:
To speak truthfully and honestly in every moment with every person I have the privilege of knowing,
To do the things I have been afraid to do,
To love with abandon and be fearless,
To create the things in my life that truly makes me happy.
This photo of an amazing new crop circle is the Phoenix. A message? Yes. From whom? It does not matter. We simply must see and pay attention to how exquisite the beauty of this work of art is, that it is here for a reason and that in any moment I can take the image and ask myself “who is the Phoenix to me?”
That is what 2012 is about. Rising up in the fullness of who we are from the ashes of the past and from the ashes of our own fear. This is a new year of rebirth. May our resolutions and resolve reflect our courage to birth a self that has just been waiting to see the light of day. If not this year, When?
Happy New Year,
Happy new you.
Happy beginning of a new era.
For just a little more beauty! Be inspired!
