Our revels now are ended.
These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, And,
like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
William Shakespeare, "The Tempest", Act 4 scene 1
Ironic, isn't it?
God gave us the wings to fly in the spacious firmament of love and freedom. How pitiful would it be then, if we were to lob off our wings by our own hand, and suffer ourselves to crawl like vermin upon the earth?
~ Kahlil Gibran

I am 25 years old. When I was about 23 I prayed to god with tears in my eyes. After hearing about the "good side" of 2012, with an open mind and heart I said, "God please let 2012 be true, let the mayans be right, FORCIBLY make something happen to the very foundations of our souls that will change the world thereafter and let nobody be left behind".
There was much more I said. But that was the main thing I asked for.
Maybe it it will not happen in that manner, the most important thing is that the world changes for the better, regardless of how it happens.

I pray that AT THE VERY LEAST...EVERYONE...HAS A CHANCE..
Im sick of people asking for seconds when others in the world, by total chance of where they were born...dont even get firsts.
I pray that everyone has a chance to follow their dream and has the OPPORTUNITY to do so regardless of where they were born.
What a great world we would live in. What an infinitely more technological world we would live in if the brilliant minds in poverty would simply have a chance to express their brilliance and build on it rather than fighting starvation.
We like sports?
Im willing to bet my life...some of the greatest athletes in all of history starved to death just because of where they were born, something they cant control.
Dont feel sorry though, its the people in poverty that live the simple and fulfilling lives when we over think everything and force "dis ease" on ourselves.
They are the lucky ones, not us.
Can you imagine a world where 100% of the people had the opportunity and the means to do what they "wanted" (im reluctant to say "destined" to do and maybe they fulfill their destiny regardless of their physical environment..I hope this is the case).
We would have colonized space by now.
All the brilliant scientists we lost because of our lack of the ability to SHARE. We teach our kids to share, yet we dont even share ourselves.
Why cant their be a limit on how much you "need" to survive. After a certain amount, you share the wealth to people who need it instead of buying a 50 bedroom house when you only need a ONE freaking bed to sleep on.
I dream of a place where everyone can follow their own dream. Where you dont need an education or a big job or a huge house to be viewed successful. Where people dont look outward for verification that they are successful and realize its only what they think of themselves that matter.
I get many synchronicities when I read your posts Newageman...you are doing something right and undoubtedly are on the right track. I was thinking about all the synchronicities that have happend in the past while reading your posts and I check the time..
There is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much more things I would "like to" view our future as and with your word I WILL view that future I see as fact.
I will be posting many many more, this is the 1st of 1 million things I could write.

I like this Mayan's message, about the return of the men of wisdom, and the coming of a new day and a new dawn.
Let everything that is false and untrue and which holds as its aim, the control and domination of "the masses" be washed away, and let a new history be founded on the stone which was yet again rejected (or sacrificed) by the "builders", become the keystone (as the individual citizen) in the royal arch across which humanity may begin to pass into everlasting life and freedom. Amen.
