12-21-12 Relfect on your Dark, Seek your Light

According to the Mayan calendar the world is ending tomorrow… What are you going to do?!? How do you feel about it?? Do you even care?

To me, tomorrow marks the end of the world as we know it… lots of stuff changing, shifts happening, and people are opening up more into their truth and their happiness. A time to stop anger, end violence, and choose peace. This would be a great day to just tune back into YOU. What has happened this year. What changes have made you who you are. And to stop holding onto the past or leaving your feet stuck behind you. Choose what you like, what makes your heart sing, and journey forward into the new world with your own light and guidance.

Tomorrow is also the Winter Solistice… the longest and darkest day of the year. From here on the sun comes out, the light begins to shine more, and with it we step into the new universe and energies and carry our own light with pride and glory.

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”  [Albert Einstein]

“But often our idea of darkness is analogous to ignorance, suffering and malice. Perhaps this is true because when we don’t stop to go deep, to have a time for reconnection with our inner self and the great Mystery, then we lose our way and become out of balance. We are like ships who have lost their rudder. If we don’t have this important “down” time, then darkness can indeed become our enemy. It then becomes a reminder of what we are not willing to face. This turns to terror. But if we make friends with our own darkness, it has much to teach us. We learn about what happens when there is too much living on the surface of life; endless doing, going and consuming. We learn that this is the result of an unrealistic reaching for a false ‘light’, one that doesn’t acknowledge the shadow and it is born of fear. We certainly have had plenty of that kind of darkness in the world. And it is a very sinister dark indeed. Look where it has brought us. We do need light, the light of reason, of care and of courage. This light is what we raise ourselves to, like seeds that have taken root in the earth that seek the sun. But in doing so, we don’t leave the ground….The sun in its return takes a while; One day is just a very small interval of time towards the light. But it is towards the light. I honor the little slivers of light that are the heroic acts of those working tirelessly for a better world. And today’s heroes at this point are too many to name. These heroic acts, these collective slivers of light coming through us offer a possibility that we just may make it. But mind you, we will make it because enough of us have decided to face and embrace our individual and collective darkness and steadfastly, wholeheartedly move towards that light. To live more and more in a simple, but profound connection to each other and to our planet.” [http://www.transitionus.org]
