On this day of 11/11/11 at 11:11am, I’d like to ask: Do you prefer to live your life in power or fear?
I choose power whenever possible and have been ecstatic by the ideas that were being shared by some people after a Hip Hop Tantra Yoga class. The good news is that the world is actually going to get better and we are all empowered to help control that upswing.
Another piece of good news I gathered from that class, news that felt true to my innermost core is that the Mayan calendar has already ended, so there’s no need to fear the notorious date of December 21, 2012. The school of thought is that we’ve already moved from the Piscean Age to the Age of Aquarius and any shifts will be happening internally and not necessarily with the external environment.
What this means is that we can start now to focus on our own individual spiritual evolution, and by doing so, help improve the world around us more quickly. There will be some discomfort for our world to transform to where it needs to be, but I don’t think it’s necessary to focus on the pain of the transformation. Instead, let’s be prepared for a bumpy ride and look forward to our beautiful destination when the plane has landed.
A blog called The Mayan Calendar Portal has some very balanced, practical advice on navigating our spiritual evolution during this time of dramatic change:
If you are wearing pink glasses that result with a perception of “Everything is nice, beautiful and good”, take them off. If you are wearing dark glasses that result with a perception of “Many bad things are coming and it will be the end of the world”, take that off as well. Put on the glasses that help you see the truth and don’t look outside but look within. Instead of making a comet or a cosmic event an object of fear or relying on an outside event for something good, look inside and put your insights in the center of your life. As Jung says “Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” … One needs to stay strong spiritually. I encourage you to live far from prejudice, heart centered and not excluding any kind of worshipping but still questioning the dogmas.
