What Will 2012 Bring to YOU?

So many stories. What to believe? Is it just another 2K disaster fluke? Or is there something to the talk about an Apocalypse occurring in 2012?

According to present day Mayan shamans and elders...this is an extremely important year -- but _they_ never prophesied 'a destructive end of the world.'

With mass consciousness offering up such a diverse and powerful focus on 2012, one can be assured that many significant changes will occur. Granted, there are many people who have not the foggiest notion what the Mayans, the Mayan Calendar, and the year 2012 are all about... however, I am convinced that everyone is feeling some kind of change. ...even though some may not verbalize it -- or understand what is happening.

Doomsday prophets and prophecies have always existed. The Year 2012 has received more attention than any other 'prophetic date' in history. What I am 'sure' of is this: With all the focus upon this new year -- it WILL affect anybody who has even the slightest interest in all these prophecies. Whether one calls it 'the end' or 'a shift' ... it will produce significant changes in our lives. Most of us are already aware of this. I am not, however, one of those people who believe some kind of catastrophic disaster will occur that bring an end to the planet.

I do believe in the Apocalypse... but not as commonly mis-interpreted. The original meaning of this word means a thinning of -- or lifting of--the veil. It means things will be revealed or made known. Many people are 'seeing through' the dishonesty and manipulation of the so called 'sacred institutions' that people dare not question before. Already this is happening daily. Naturally this will cause upheaval and all kinds of upset because people will be angry when finding out how much we have been programmed, controlled, and lied to. But this is still all for the ultimate good.

Not only will these things be brought to will also include those things we have hidden deep within ourselves. We have to remember that whatever happens on 'the outside' of us is an observable expression or representation of what is a vibrational match within us. Yes, time IS going faster! The energy IS stronger!... which is causing beliefs to manifest very quickly. Nothing is healed as long as it is denied. One can't put a happy face band aid on a problem and pretend it doesn't exist. We, first of all, have to make peace with what IS. All of our "Problems" have their basis in our faulty, non-beneficial beliefs. We create our own reality if we believe we do or not.

Faulty, hurtful beliefs have to be faced, seen for what they are doing to us, then thanked for 'showing us'. Then NEW beliefs must be adopted in their place and given our attention and focus. All a belief is -- is a thought we keep thinking and we erroneously think is 'true' or 'fact.' We don't 'get rid of' faulty beliefs. Everything exists. What we resist, persists. What we DO is decide what we WANT to believe and then our focus and attention to it.

What does that have to do with 2012? Everything! The SHIFT that is occurring and is still occurring is about mankind's personal and mass consciousness expanding and evolving... in a big way. I realize that without an understanding of meta or quantum physics .. this may seem a bit off the wall.

The Shift...the 2012 prophecy as talked about by the Mayans has to do with shifts in consciousness which will result in manifesting the outward physical phenomena. NOT the other way around! --although it may seem that way to those who do not recognize the Law of Attraction....but that is the Illusion. That is what we have to get beyond.

As we progress through this year, with the energy as strong as it is -- it is becoming increasingly more important that we FOCUS ON WHAT WE WANT ...not... not... not upon what we do not want. This involves all facets of our everyday life. What we think, what we concentrate upon, what we give our energy to, what actions we take, and how we honor ourselves...AND...our fellow man and all things, great or small. The world we will experience will be that of our own creation. Be careful who or what you align yourself with. I am not meaning for anyone to think they must become a sort of spotless, flawless saint..! or I'd never make it! Nerd Just follow your heart. We all have GOOD hearts. I believe that! When Joseph Campbell said "Follow Your Bliss" ... he was talking about our own, individualized journeys. We must follow what makes us genuinely feel good, joyful, at peace, and yet excited about life!! I believe that the Year 2012 can be the year in which we really and truly discover and harness the God-Goddess-All That Is-Source-Power that lies within each and everyone of us. It can be a grand journey. If we truly WANT it...and ALLOW be.

Happy New Year to Everyone! Peace, Love, Joy, and Blessings to All!

My Favorite Teaching on "the true meaning of Christmas" from SETH....


"Do not think that Christmas is too camp. In your civilization, when you allow it to, it speaks to the child in you. Accept the child and enjoy the myth, for behind the myth there is truth, and the truth is that you are reborn. And the truth is that the inner self does have the wonder of a child. Other stories have been wound about those truths, but the truths remain.The god Pan has as great a validity as Christ has. The names change; the stories change to fit your ideas and your civilization. Now, I prefer Pan piping his magic flutes over the countryside and drinking wine, to a Christ born to be crucified. But that is my idea; you pick your own. Behind all the myths is the reality. You are born with the wonder of a child again to remake the world in a new image. Christmas should represent the rebirth of the self. 'Seth Speaks' should be called 'You Speak.' So listen to yourselves. It is fashionable to think in terms of Buddha and Eastern religions. And it is not fashionable to think of the infant Christ, for example. So you are "in" if you think of Buddha, and "out" if you dare to let a tear show when they play a Christmas carol. The same thing is involved. You are still dealing with systems of beliefs and myths that have grown through the ages. And each of them has their degree of validity and their degree of distortion. Santa Claus -- Ho Ho -- is relatively harmless considering what your religions have done. If you are bad you get a hunk of coal, and if you are good you get a goody. But what about a god who says if you are good you will go to heaven and if you are bad you burn through all eternity? Place your indignation where it belongs! Holly

All of the gods in your myths die and are rewarded -- from the time of your ancient memory, and through the ages of the memory of your race.So it is simply said again and again, in terms that you understand, according to the time in which you think you live: That you are born again and again, and the trials of the gods are your own, and so are their triumphs and their joys. The symbols used are also colored by the times, and they are personified, so winter and the cold that sweeps across the earth are used to symbolize the death of the soul.Not a death, however, but transformation. If you understood your myths, you could use them effectively. When you think that they are reality, however, they can entrap you. You are the stories that the Soul tells. You are your own stories, and you create your ideas of God according to your interpretation of greater realities that you understand and do not understand. You are catching up with your own understanding, but as soon as you understand, there is more to learn because creativity is never still and never done and never finished. In other worlds there are other Christmas tales, each with their own story and rhyme. But none of them denies the intense and eternal NOW which is being forever created and in which you have your quite natural existence. And none of it denies the joyful vitality that is your own, neither the bewilderment in your eye, nor the pleasure in yours.All of this is meant to illuminate the joy and ease of your own being, and meant to generate within you, if you will forgive me, that old Ho Ho Ho -- the vitality and the laughter and the joy that is your being. If you understood thoroughly what I am trying to say to you, you would be laughing with me and enjoying your own grizzly beard and hair, and, as you looked around at each other, you would see yourselves as all ages, reborn time and time again and with your identity alive within you now. Holly

The truth is not something apart from you. You each are truth, speaking and living in physical form. Seth Speaks is within you and not in a book. You are the book. Then joyfully listen to what your feelings tell you. Your thoughts and your feelings are both natural and both yours. And your joy is within you, Christmas or non-Christmas, Santa Claus or no Santa Claus, December 25 or the 4th of July. Your atoms and molecules shout with the joy of their own being; listen to them.Feel within their fleshy substance your own spirituality. Look at the Christmas tree; your cells and molecules shine a million times more brightly. Your eyes glitter with far greater light. You are love in corporeal form. You do not have to look for it or wonder where to find it or give it in packages with bright ribbon. You are packages with bright ribbon. Christmas is now and was yesterday and will be tomorrow.It is in you, in Buddha, in Pan, in Christ, in Mohammed, in an ant and in a frog, and in your eyes and with you, each of you. Holly

You are each, then, Christmas. You shine and glitter whether or not you know it. You shout "Merry Christmas" even when you cry. You cannot deny your own vitality or being. Let the vitality and energy, therefore, ring out through your own knowledge. Let it awaken within you the knowledge of your being. Dance through your own molecules and scatter your own petals!"

Sports Fans!! -- Tebow Is Out Of The Closet!! Should he be?

It's all ridiculous. And I will admit that, momentarily, I allowed myself to get caught up in it. So, I am not 'pointing fingers' at anyone regardless of their opinion of Denver's new savior: Broncos Quarterback Tim Tebow. He has a number of nicknames, including The Messiah of Mile High, and with some of the more radical devotees of football, the term is no longer 'praying''s 'Tebow-ing'... Leaf 4 I don't happen to be a sports fan... and if one IS...hey, that's OK, too. Kept in perspective, it can be enjoyable. When it goes beyond that -- it's insanity. Tree 6 Sports fans from all over the world tend to forget 'it's just a game'...They seem to have a desperate craving to identify with 'their team'--as opposed to 'the team.' I think a jolly and profitable new business might be the creation of exorcists who can loose radical fans of their possession of--and over-identification with --their team. It's much more than 'getting a little over-excited about winning or losing' ... In Denver, police are called for more cases of spouse or child beatings more than any other time...if and when the "Broncos lose a game." That is why I call it insanity. Leaf 4 I wonder, sometimes, if Tebow were Muslim -- and whenever he would score a touchdown, he would drop to the ground, bowing (Te-bowing?? heh! Smile) to the East and shout, Praise Allah!! -- I wonder what the Mile High reaction would be? That would undoubtedly call for him to be excommunicated from the NFL... and he would become a terrorist suspect, I am quite sure. Tree 6 Some say they are proud of Tebow because he is not ashamed to 'declare his faith publicly and openly'... Is that what it is? Anybody remember the Biblical story of the Pharisee who made a public display of his prayers and generosity? Perhaps Mr. Tebow should wear on his face (he has various scriptures chapters and numbers written on the blackened part under the eyes) the Biblical verses of Matthew 6:5-6 where it is suggested to NOT make a public display... but to go into the closet to pray. That certainly gives a whole new meaning to 'in or out of the closet' Leaf 4 Christians themselves seem to be divided on this subject. I think what 'side' one chooses to align with might likely be dependant upon several aspects of one's belief systems. Is Tebow 'witnessing' for Jesus? Does anyone with two active brain cells actually believe that the Great Teacher Jesus gives a flying donut hole about SPORTS TEAMS!!! Good goddess Gertie...!! Herein, to me, lies the problem of making what one calls their God out to be a Super HUMAN kinda guy ...Jesus included. To me, this is like making the idea of God or Jesus into a 'good luck charm.' That is sad. Very sad. Tree 6 I can't help but wonder why Tebow had to choose to make a public display of his 'faith.' Wouldn't it be enough to inwardly 'thank' his God? (some suggest he should be thanking the Defense)... Surely God could 'hear' this, right? What drives him to 'go public' with his actions? Is it REALLY between him and God ... or is it more than that. To me, it's more like the Jehovah's Witnesses showing up at your door, driven by a need to 'witness.' Or like the men in the X-Files here, but the Mormon's who feel compelled to openly witness...or the Phelps family from the Westboro Baptist witness to what they honestly believe is the 'right thing to do.' I believe that Tebow knew that his actions would be both sensationalistic and controversial. Is this the 'Christian way?' Leaf 4I can't help but wonder what the reactions will be when and if the Broncos lose! Maybe it will simply be pawned off to 'God's mysterious ways.'... Or...let's say...the Broncos make it to the Super Bowl...AND win... Will this mean that God is sending a message to the world to follow Him and the ways of Tebow? I am quite certain some will see it that way. To each his own. To me, if any 'good' will have come out of all of this ... it might be that it simply gives us pause to think about how scary is our attachment to a 'winning or losing' sports team.

Our Personal Beliefs About The Constitution ... It's important we recognize the correlation...
You might check that article out... I think you will find it interesting and thought provoking in the way it speaks about the idea of 'constitution worship'...
Many Americans consider the 200 yr old document to be sacred, flawless, and so pure that even a little smudge of ink besides one of the words has caused endless debates as to how it might 'alter a meaning that would directly effect each and every American.' You must admit that is strangely amusing...I believe some folks would far soon take issue with Biblical words and phrases than 'mess with the Constitution.'
Red Ornament We are the ONLY country in the entire world that has never changed its original Constitution...did you know that? There are many historians and philosophers who have contributed very thought-provoking ideas as to why we consider this document to be no less than 'sacred.' This is what I would like to share with you.
Many people have been mind controlled via fear-based religious teachings, making it easy for them to transfer this same loyal allegiance to our "sacred documents"... the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution... I suppose the Amendments must also, therefore, be 'Inspired' also! ... Although fundamentalism deserves to be at the top of the list, I'm willing to go out on a limb and say most religions have instilled a sense of 'unworthiness' in their followers, the idea of having to be saved, and always look towards those who 'know better' ... So with this mind set, it was easy for 'transference' to take place which made it fairly simple for those who 'control' us...namely the Powers That Be.
Because of this blind-faith attitude, the idea of Questioning Authority of ANY kind automatically puts one in the suspicious light: baaaad American! perhaps a Traitor Embarrassed ... even a potential 'terrorist.' Shocked Sorry, people, but I exaggerate not. Green Ornament
Is it any wonder then, that we have little 'open' support for our Occupy Protestors? "They're just trouble makers who don't know what they are talking about..." Yeah...sure... To refuse to participate with civil disobedience when necessary because it's against the law to 'sit on the sidewalk' or for passers-by to 'honk their horns' at them... is ridiculous.
To be a good citizen means one must be a 'law abiding' citizen who obeys without question, thus making him/her an 'upstanding member of the community.' Many like to think of America as a "Christian nation.' Although it seems to reflect very, very little of what the man Jesus taught. In America, the word "Christian" tends to be thought of as synonomous with the word "good" or "right." The fact that it is ALL 'highly varied human interpretation" is totally not recognized. This is indeed unfortunate. To some, even all of our "laws" are nothing less than sacred -- never to be questioned or defied.
Are you aware that America has MORE LAWS than all those of Europe put together? And yet who is the 'leader in crime' in the world? Yup. Us. So someplace, somewhere along the line, people are going to have to stop thinking of laws and documents as something that is as Infallible as the Pope or God sitting on his Throne... Here is where 'fear' gets a real grip on far too many people. Green Ornament
Someplace, somewhere along the line we are going to have to overcome that fear and examine and scrutinize our own attitudes and ideas. This will entail knowing what we truly WANT ... not just fighting and bucking against what we do NOT want. We will attract what we focus upon. Nerd You can't fool Mother Nature OR the Law of Attraction!
Someone asked me once: "If you could give the whole world one message...what would it be." I stole the answer from a speech I heard someone give! I said "I would say Question Authority...and then think about things when there is no one else around to agree or disagree with you and ask 'how does this REALLY make me feel?" Not meaning my ego-ridden ideas of Right or Wrong... but how aligned am I to the spirit within.
I know I am guilty of it, too -- but we ALL have to get past other people's ideas of what is right or wrong... and really start to think for ourselves. We must learn to LET GO of the idea of 'sanctity' of any one country, one constitution, or one set of human-made Laws and Rules... and to trust that someplace within us is a far greater inward knowing which means overcoming a lot of programmed fear of DARING to question any and all 'authority.' Too many have no idea where this 'authority' even originated. Red Ornament
I DO honestly believe things are 'getting better' --and I also believe it will entail some big upheavals of sorts....perhaps necessary in order so that people will become willing to Let Go of what is not working. It all begins with believing in -- and thinking for -- ourselves...displaying a willingness to Let Go of those stubbornly held ideas that are not working!!.... We need to believe in the goodness which exists in every single person...regardless of how well it is 'covered up.' And some seem to do that quite well!! Rolling Eyes However, that can be the beginning of Awakening and coming into Awareness. That is Enlightenment. I always end each article with "Namaste' " It's more than just a 'nice greeting' ... It means: "the Soul in me acknowledges the Soul in you"... We best be careful what we want and what we wish for ... wishes and wants (beliefs) have a way of coming true. It is best, perhaps, if we remember that for our sake... what we want needs to be based on what is for the highest good ...of all concerned.
Namaste' Prayer
