There have been many fear mongering statements lately,mainly about 2012,war,nuclear holocaust and the sun etc etc.I have come to the conclusion that in the backs of peoples minds mine included that we almost want something BIG to happen. We all know that we are all connected in several ways,mainly in mind and spirit.Do we have a collective human guilt from what humanity is doing to this beautiful world or are we insane? A paradigm shift is coming and I personally do not think we can get there with a mass suicidal / genocidal mindset.We screwed the planet up and we can't fix it by hoping for catastrophe.That would be way too easy.Lets not mess this opportunity for 'The Shift' up with negative thoughts.Everything starts with the mind and projects outward.Feeling that collective guilt has been having an impact on many and I do not think fear mongering helps at all.
sorry if thoughts a little fragmented made on the fly

I felt I needed to address the comment you made about those of us in the "rural areas taking up arms against the city slickers". I HAVE (not sure if I am one of which you speak but...) made the comment in the past about just this, but I'm afraid it may have been misconstrued. When I stated this I meant that we will protect ourselves and our homes. If EVERYONE heads for the hills it will become a very crowded and dangerous place as there are very limited resources. I for one will protect what I need to, but at the same time I DO understand the need to find food and shelter. My family and I will not fight against those in need, actually we are most likely to be sharing our "last loaf of bread" so to speak.edit on 26-4-2011 by avatar22 because: (no reason given)
