Minimum Bottom line: Atms drained of cash, food shelves cleaned out of grocery stores and warehouse clubs weeks in advance of Chirstmas. A terrible Christmas, children scared, adults scared, no one gets much sleep in 2012, the entire year. Sleeping pills sell like hot cakes, doctors treating people for manic depression. Ammunition sales soar. People buy practical Christmas gifts. Everything will be anti recession. People spending their money. House sales soar..... everyone wants stability? Walmart stock soars? What ever preparations happen at hurricane time will happen everywhere worldwide. Peace will emerge while nothing happens, chaos if something does.

I have been thinking about this alot lately. First let me say that I do believe that something is happening, something is changing, something is different.
About a year and a half ago, I was driving in my car and suddenly had a profound thought come into my head. I suddenly KNEW without a doubt that everything is one and connected. Duality is an illusion. This experience started everything for me.
I then had an uncontrollable urge to learn the truth about everything. I bought books, I searched the net looking for the truth. I felt led to certain books. I felt led to this site. It seems that everytime I have a question about something, the answer is put right in my lap. It has been the best year and a half of my 51 years.
At the same time, I also wonder if I have gone off my rocker. I never use to think about the things I think about now. I also used to be stressed out all the time. I am much calmer now.
There are too many things happening at the same time now, like no other time in history. It just seems like everything is coming together. It seems planned and I don't mean planned by the PTB. I think it is planned by something MUCH bigger than that. TPTB are just players.
I try to keep my head in the real world to some degree. If nothing happens in the next 3 1/2 years, then I want to be able to laugh at myself and look at it as a very strange part of my life.

Think about it. Many people have fallen on hard times economically. Of course many would accept the fact of the world entering its final stage of existence, when the future looks so bleak for 90 percent of us.
