Count me in as yet another member eerily surprised, yet strangely comforted by the fact that so many others feel a bit "off" recently. I just spoke
about a feeling that something is imminent with my family and they echoed the sentiment. We theorized it could be the weather, the season, the
holiday letdown, and the simple passing of tbe year. I also suggested it could be a case of 2012-itis, a general apprehension ingrained by all the
hype thst is so reminiscent of what happened in 2000.
But, taking me out of my comfort zone, is the fact that I have noticed so many "synchronicities." I literally forgot the word "coincidence" in my
struggle to describe what is happening, because it seems too prevalent to just be dismissed. Whether it is simply the social dynamics of human
behavior or something more ethereal, it is definitely a little unsettling.
At the root of it I have a powerful feeling that if we are to be successful moving forward we need to re-evalute tolerance; becoming less tolerant of
the arrogance and ignorance of not only others, but of ourselves, in order to spare enough to truly band together for the common good. In essence, it
feels like a reckoning none of us will survive unscathed, being forced to reconcile with who we really are if we are to survive.
Of course that could merely be the anthropomorphisising of an emotional drive to become better through New Year's resolutions comically counterposed
to the supposed end of the world, but what do I know?
