In an earlier post, I had written that I suspected that 2010 would be the year of OMG TV. That is, almost every time you will switch on the TV to watch the news you would respond by saying OMG! Well the tragic events unfolding in Haiti certainly fit into that category. We have talked about the possibility that events both natural and social will unfold during this next year that have the potential to overwhelm us all. Our senses and sensibility will be rattled.
I have always been somewhat reluctant to share all that I have envisioned and sensed because there was always been a part of me that did not want to be correct about what I have had the privilege to see in advance. Now, however, it is more important to share my thoughts on why such premonitions have been a blessing really. The real theme of my blog is to be aware, be prepared, and be calm.
Now more than ever, that is the reality. In a world caught up in greed, runaway egos, and self-centered survivalists, we need to re-examine ourselves very closely. We need to return to the true nature of our being, which is community and unity, not dog eat dog. What we are witnessing and participating in is a major universal correction. Without the understanding that this a normal process throughout the universe, these events can overwhelm us. Indeed, those who do not understand or remain in denial when it is obvious, will be overwhelmed. Some refer to the transistion time as a time of insanity. I think we can all nod silently in agreement that we are in that time.
With understanding and foresight, we can prepare, endure, and emerge to begin a life, once again filled with purpose, meaning, and hope. It can not be any other way. If you are of a like mind, then now is the time to talk to your family and friends, share your experiences and thoughts about this subject. Help those closest to you get through these times. I think you will be surprised if you do such an exercise. You will discover wisdom in children and rigidity in those you thought were open minded and wise. The important thing is to discuss and prepare. Talk about how and where you gather if it becomes necessary. How will you provide for one other if survival becomes tantamount. It is not a time to OVER react.
I suspect as we get closer to the events that will define the end of the age and the beginning of the new, things that will be happening will not make much sense and panic and chaos can be the operative words. What I am trying to say is that does not have to be the case. Being prudent and prepared does not constitute over reaction. There is a certain peace of mind that comes with understanding and a certain confidence that emerges when you are prepared to survive anything. The new leaders will be leaders of their families, not governmental heads. We have all observed how dismally our “elected” leaders have responded both home and internationally. In essence, they are ineffective, grossly. Health care here at home and the recent Copenhagen Conference, internationally, are two of the most recent examples of this fact.
When I started this blog in April of last year, I really didn’t do it for any other reasons that to start a diary. I did not suspect anyone would really read or care what was in it. Honestly, I have been overwhelmed by the hundreds of readers who have not only read it, but felt compelled to respond. I thank you all and I will continue to write about whatever nature compels me to write about. I wish for all of you a safe and peaceful New Year.
