End of the world perspectives

End of the world perspectives (Mayan apocalypse predictions) for Dec 21, 2012

You’ve probably seen a bunch of “end of the world” predictions all centered around the date of Dec 21, 2012.

As with everything, we get to choose the perspective we prefer. We get to choose what we want to believe – or not. And in so doing, we choose the reality we experience.

And the “Mayan apocalypse” date of Dec 21, 2012 was (is) no different. Now of course, I’m writing “after the event” – but the same principle applies regarding “choice”. Some people might see the recent warnings as “hoopla and hype”. Others may have seen them quite literally – meaning they were actually expecting a “literal end of the physical Earth” – in the form of some kind of cataclysmic event.

2012 was the year my world ended

Others (and I include myself here) saw the prediction as a “metaphor for change”. I know for myself 2012, was “the year that my world ended”.

How so?

2012 brought into focus how much I have changed; how differently I see myself and “my world” – today – compared to just 12 months ago. The realization sank in at the end of November, 2012.  The reality I was in was so dramatically different that I had to notice I had changed dramatically!  Previously my reality had been changing seemingly  “bit by bit”  – so I didn’t really “get it” that I too was changing. It was the dramatic turn of events that “alerted” me to the fact that “hey, you’ve really changed!. Just take a look at your current reality now…”

An evolutionary shift

This post is a postcard.  I just wanted to let you know about a very interesting site I’ve discovered that discusses the whole “end of the world as we have known it” idea. Some people call it an “evolutionary shift” – others call it a “natural progression” along the spiritual path – where we are becoming more and more aware of our “True Nature”.

Exploring multi-dimensionality

Suzanne Li – has some very interesting work. Take from the material what is relevant to you now.  At the heart of what she is saying is that “this is a time of great personal awakening of Our Spirit.  We are the creators of our own reality (realities) – and how we direct our mind (thoughts, emotions, focus) – determines the kinds of realities we find ourselves in.” Which is in perfect alignment with the premise of this blog.

Enjoy reading Suzanne Li’s works here.

Do you need to take a “chill pill”?

Do you need to take a “chill pill”?

All too often we get caught up in the hectic nature of our modern lives. We forget that life is a “process”. It’s a “never-ending story” .

BTW – have you seen that delightful movie of the same name? The Never Ending Story is the story of a young boy who escapes into a wondrous fantasy world through the pages of a mysterious book.

cover-TheNeverEndingStoryHow do you know if you are due for a “chill pill”?

Obvious clues include:

– Trying to control people around you. E.g. setting “rules” about what you consider is “appropriate behaviour” (put your clothes away, wash up your mess, put the toilet seat down, don’t turn on the water when I’m having a shower, don’t talk so loud, don’t – don’t – don’t  ….)  I’m sure you can add lots more examples.

– Trying to “manage” (aka control) events and circumstances around you.

What’s the net effect of such “commands” (disguised as “reasonable requests”)?

The relationship loses out.  How so?

Both parties feel constrained in some way. The one “asking” feels sufficiently compelled to voice their annoyance regarding the “undesirable” behaviour and the person getting the “order” – feels a lack of personal freedom.

Is this a good recipe for human interaction?

In my view – no!

Is this a typical type of interaction between people (couples, parents and children, work colleagues)?

Too often – yes.

Let’s look at this from a Law of Attraction (LOA) perspective

What are you “putting out”?

Disguise it as you may – essentially any attempt to get another person to change their behavior to make you feel better – is a criticism or complaint regarding their present “undesirable” (in your eyes) behaviour.

How does LOA “respond”?

It matches our vibration. It matches our dominant thoughts and feelings and brings “more of the same” kind of experience to us.

So in practical terms, how might that work?  Will it solve the immediate  “problem” of the noisy or messy kid or neighbour? Maybe “yes”.  They might agree to “co-operate” with you – to “please you” (to keep the peace).

But what you’re doing is actually amplifying your “discontent” – when you “voice it”. As you focus on the “problem” – what happens? Law of Attraction matches you up with other people and events that augment your “discontent”.

Often your “discontent” is grounded in a sense of “powerlessness” in the first place – that’s why you attempt to control.  It’s a “feeble” attempt at improving your situation (how you feel).

So what can you do?

Begin to notice yourself “telling others what to do” – to make you feel better. Pause and take a deep breath.  That’s your “chill pill”. Pause. Take a deep breath. Turn your attention to the solution.  And if that’s not easy – then change the subject completely – so that at least you ease your own annoyance – rather than augment it.

The best and easiest explanation on the subject of “control” comes from the teachings of Abraham (Esther Hicks).

Watch this clip where Abraham talks about “how to deal with people who treat you badly”.

How real is real?

Quantum physics continues to turn our ideas of “reality” upside down. The idea of a single “concrete reality” – a single world in which we all live – was shattered several decades ago and is now becoming more “mainstream”.

We are each creating our own “reality tunnel” (version of reality). How is this so?

Watch the short clip below for an explanation of how the world we inhabit is our own mental construct.  A holographic 3D illusion.
