What you think, you are. You are what you create. And you create by envisioning what you think, thereby turning it all into reality.
There is such a strong belief that the world will end around 2012. However, I believe that there is still time to change that prediction for mankind. However, it will take a little work and man has gotten too lazy to try. It would require unconnecting from all his electrical toys and devices. Turn off the tv and get rid of the newspaper. This will help get rid of fear by not being exposed it to. Dump your negative friends. Go back to a simpler time with the family where evening dinners were shared together and homework, reading, gardening,etc, filled the rest of the day. Turn your thoughts inward and find out who you really are. Seek out whoever you God is and find a closer place to him/her. I am not saying to turn "religious", just more "centered and aware". You'll be amazed what happens when you give this a try for just one month.

Alot of people see the headlines and assume the whole world is falling apart. A quick read through some history books however will show that things today are drastically improved from what has happened in the past.
There are also as many good things going on in the world as there are negative ones. It just comes down to what you want to focus your energy on.

Many people believe in metaphysical manifestation, that our thoughts can change physical reality. The attitude of people as a collective seems to be mostly negative and bleak, with little faith or trust in our governments and leaders to do the right things, or even hope that we as a species can overcome the epidemic of greed and corruption. We've wreaked havok on the environment, and we literally # where we eat (and drink!) now. There are many more examples...
Do you believe that we are metaphysically manifesting the end of the world (or at the least, a new dark age) with our collective thoughts?

I think this is a real danger within the alternative community. There is so much reporting of the dark acts, which is understandable because much of the truth which is not being reported by the MSM is dark, but people need to know about it.
