This is a hard post to write because I have to separate myself from the hype, the glamor (yes glamor), the trendy 'in the know' thoughts and
theories about 2012, and, examine it for what it is.
A 'possibility' that will invoke change.
2012 is epic of it's own creation.
From a calendar that's debatably an 'ancient relic come to life predicting disaster and world change', to an antique appointment book dropped by a
long ago Mayan, the 2012 'Fact vs. Myth' is a combination whirlwind and cleansing fire roaring through the news, blogs, here on ATS and just about
everywhere else the information age reaches, into our imagination and beyond.
And by it's sheer movement and proportions - it will bring change.
For isn't calling it 'just a bunch of hype' defining 'it' in itself?
So, what will the hype do? Hopefully catapult us into action!
No one knows for sure what really will happen in 2012.
Everyone's got their own theories be it First Contact, a massive pole shift, the rise of ancient Gods or a Second Coming. WW3. Sun flares to roast
us all? Who knows!
But rest assured something WILL happen.
What my heart tells me is true? Whatever happens, whatever 'it' will be? If I don't go to work on ME now - I'll get left out. And I don't want
to be left out.
Point being? We can't use the short time we have (left) between now and 2012 unwisely.
We can't rely on sleeping out overnight on in a makeshift tent on the eve of this great event in hope to be one of the first in line to get
the winning ticket or prize for whatever 2012 is going to bring.
I suggest if you're one of those people waiting in line? It's time to get OUT of that 'line' and start doing! I propose we stop waiting for 2012
and bring 2012 to you.
How? By being honest with yourself. Ask yourself what needs changing in you, and do it.
It's as simple and as complex as the Nike add: 'Just Do It'.
As a little example.
Have you ever been a pound, stone, kilo or two overweight and had an upcoming 'get together' to prepare for?
It's 3 months in the future, you'll have time to do that 'slimming' for that wedding, that reunion, that special date?
A month and a half to go and you're still popping biscuits thinking, no rush, right?
Two weeks from the event something in the back of your mind starts itching and wondering if you'll be able to cut it.
A week before? You're looking into the newest thing in corsets, the overnight diet wonders, a tummy tuck and three days under a sunlamp, cause hey,
if you're overweight you still look cool if you've a tan right?
Not this time - This isn't the time for overnight diets and snake oil cures - but to do something now while you still can.
What is that action? I can't tell you. No one can. Only you can tell you.
Put yourself in 'you shoes.'
Close your eyes and picture yourself watching the clock, just moments before 2012.
Imagine yourself watching the countdown.
Then ask yourself - 'What didn't I do?'
What will you be berating yourself for? What will be your regrets? Those things you'll wish with all your heart and soul you'd done while you
still had time?
You've asked yourself and your heart knows the answer. The right answer. For you. And from the only person who's opinion really counts and who's
answers you can trust. Yours. Now's the time to trust you.
Ok, so where to go from there?
Well, researching someone else's ancient theories isn't going to help. Studying myths of the 'end times' wont either. Doing what all the 'New
Agers' tell you to do - will not matter a whit.
What will matter is not what you believe about 2012, but, what you do, with you, about it now.
Now. Not in the last minute, but starting this minute.
So, for a moment place yourself in the 2012 scenario of your choice, and ask yourself, 'What is it I wish I'd of done - before?'
Now - Go change it. Go be it. Go do what needs to be done. Because 2012 is not a time to go into wearing stones of regret.
Because No matter what - if you believe 2012 will bring change NOW - and do something about it NOW - 2012 will be a miracle! And you will NOT be
So, your 'Gift of a Second Chance' is here. What are you going to do about it?
Me? I'm going to start by getting in touch with everyone I know who I've done wrong, or, who I feel has done me wrong, and either way, ask for
forgiveness and give it. From there, I don't know what else, not yet, but I bet if I listen to my heart it wont take long for something else to come
What about you?
And for all of you who truly want to change - to grow - to be more - I hope and pray you find the courage and strength to do it.
