Well, another year gone and another opportunity to reflect on it.
First off, I want to say a deep and heartfelt “Thank you” to all of you who either started reading this blog when I first started it back in April 2012, to those who have only recently decided that they want to read my little scribblings and strange thoughts and to anyone else who drops by. That people are interested in anything I have to say surprises me in a good way, kind of like trying out a new recipe and discovering that the results were much tastier than expected :-).
When I first started it, I thought maybe of just posting up stuff about this energetic shift and how I see it being played out in the general culture. If others agreed, great but if no one else did, that was OK too. Since then it’s morphed into a bit of a spiritual diary, travelogue, and soapbox. I lost a few readers along the way and picked up others so it’s all good. We also unfortunately lost the amazing metaphysician, thinker and writer Stuart Wilde.
2013 to me is a year in which the shift really got underway.
Maybe there was no cataclysmic event with the end of the Mayan calendar back in December 21, 2012 but it would be very hard to dismiss the fact that more and more is certainly coming to the surface. Unprecedented demonstrations in Turkey and Brazil against corrupted governments, the secretive Bilderberg meetings having gone mainstream, the sentencing and imprisonment of Private Chelsea Manning, some yoga cult-like leaders like Bikram Choudhury being exposed for the damaged people they really, the exposure of the NSA’s inner workings and the extent of surveillance on the civilian population around the world thanks to Edward Snowden and Glenn Greenwald’s reportage, a full-scale war against Syria which never happened thanks to public outcry, the launch of The People’s Voice which David Icke and his crew managed to get off the ground from a well-spring of grass-roots support and a Pope who has finally signalled to the world that change is possible, and using himself as an example, it starts with your own actions, big and small.
History teaches us that ideas finally take root and revolution happens when you hit critical mass and you would be surprised to hear that critical mass is as low as 10%. Once you hit 10%, that’s it, game over, the snow-ball effect starts to take place and doesn’t stop after that. While I don’t think 2014 will be the year we hit the 10% mark, it will be a year when we get closer to that target. Here’s a hint as to how to get there:
I wish every last one of you a peaceful and serene 2014. I hope all of you get that much closer to your goals and dreams whatever they may be. The Buddhists teach us that the Universe is constantly in flux, that change is the name of the game, so with that in mind I hope you all hold on to your seats safely while you enjoy the crazy ride.
