the mayans never prophesied an end date..
"perhaps every generation believes that it has reached a turning point of history, but our problems seem particularly intractable and our future
increasingly uncertain. many of our difficulties mask a deeper spiritual crisis.." -karen armstrong
history is always turning, it doesn't spontaneously change in an certain instant or on a specific date.. it's the cumulative interactions of
innumerable forces that drive the evolution of our world..
"when you come to think of it, almost all human behavior and activity is not, essentially, any different from animal behavior. the most advanced
technologies and craftsmanship bring us, at best, up to the super-chimpanzee level.. actually, the gap between, say, plato or nietzsche, and the
average human is greater than the gap between that chimpanzee and the average human..
the realm of the real spirit, the true artist, the saint, the philosopher, is rarely achieved.. why so few? why is world history and evolution not
stories of progress, rather this endless and futile addition of zeros?
no greater values have developed. hell, the greeks 3,000 years ago were just as advanced as we are. so what are these barriers that keep people from
reaching anywhere near their real potential. the answer to that can be found in another question, and that's this:
which is the most universal human characteristic: fear or laziness?" -louis mackey
instead of drawing assumptions based on incorrect information that has been distorted by time and endless reinterpretation, fearing "the end" like
it's just around the corner, and waiting our whole lives for "something" to happen, why don't we take hold of the now? why don't we try to
educate each other and help one another understand each other?
why do we spend so much time focused on what may or may not be out there, coming to get us, when we could be embracing what we are so incredibly lucky
to already have?
we need to push ourselves to truly make a positive difference in this world, for the short time we are here.. we need to stop focusing on every little
bad thing that may or may not come our way and instead actually listen to the universe when it speaks to us, which it has done all along and always
the world will not end in our lifetimes, not if we show it that we are grateful to be here and respect the life it has provided us.. we need to
reconnect ourselves to the universal intelligence, get back in synch with it, and realise that it loves us as its own children..
