Hello, and good day to all. First of all, I have no idea which forum this should be in. I have some thoughts on the upcoming year, the occupy
movement, and what it all means to me (and hopefully some others out there).
I would like to start by saying this: there is a war going on right now for your mind. Some people occupy their own (think for themselves), some
people are starting to "wake up" and occupy their own, and some people allow TPTB and the media occupy theirs. The inner occupation is what truly has
led us to where we are today. It affects every decision we make (good or bad). It is my personal opinion (formed through a life long observation of
how people act) that people who think for themselves and who prioritize the ideal of "common good" generally make better decisions than people that
think they way others want them to think. An example of this is if someone watches an infomercial for some domestic product, they are told by the
commercial different reasons why they "need" the product. So many people will blindly buy into this because the magic voice on the TV is telling them
they need it, and in a society where fear is the ultimate tool to sell, it's extremely effective. Often times this person won't step back and think
"Wait do I really need this? Why and why not?" These decisions are based off impulse and fear. And this fear is put inside our mind by others.
It's not our thought. It was implanted in our mind to force a reaction. I don't naturally wake up in the morning and decide I want a snuggie.
Outside forces tell me I need it. It's about time people take back their minds and own it. The physical occupation of corruptions has already begun.
It's about time we occupy our own minds. Our reality will be sure to follow.
So obviously being that this ATS, many (if not all of you) are aware of the constant debate that rages on about 2012 and the mayan prophecies. There
are many theories thrown around about what exactly they were trying to say (end of the world, nirubu, a new dimension, etc etc). I became interested
in this concept when I first read about these prophecies a few years back. Because I had no opinion formed on it, I read up on as many different
interpretations as I could. The one that really stuck out to me was the idea that 2012 marked an "awakening" for the human race, as opposed to the
end of the world. This awakening is a newly formed perspective on reality and what is that really matters. This would supposedly allow us to take
the next step in human evolution: the one where we all come together to form a greater good. This, for whatever reason, was predicted in a time when
different human cultures were basically isolated from each other. But they predicted that by now, we would be able to unite as one collective group,
and essentially become one. Now this may sound like a stretch, but this collective mind is something that our world has never seen. Now I will
provide some evidence that I have seen to prove this is happening right now:
-We are technologically advanced enough that we can now truly "connect" to anyone in the world. The internet has done wonders to allow people from
all over the world to communicate and brainstorm on different ideas, offering all different kinds of perspectives on whatever topic is at hand.
Cultures have been blended and people have a good idea of what else is out there. We are all connected.
-People have begun to "wake up" all over the world. This personal awakening has generally involved a shift in one's priorities from those forced upon
you by capitalism, money and the media to personal and moral priorities. For me, this spiritual shift has been the single most important change I
have ever made. I struggled with depression my whole life before I was awakened, but these feelings are completely gone now. And I know with 100%
certainty that they will never come back. There is a distinct control over my emotions and feelings that I never had before. It's hard to
articulate, but in general my outlook is much better than is was before and I feel like every aspect of my life is better because of it. I am also
much more open to new things, and new ideas. I consider all aspects before I make a decision (or at least I try to). Logic now reigns supreme for
- People are uniting all over the world. OWS has shown that the desire for a common good has begun to transcend racial, social, religious. political,
economic, sexual lines alike. This awakening discriminates no one, and benefits everyone. This is only going to grow.
- People have expressed a general feeling that "something big is going to happen." You can see it all over ATS. I have the same feeling. And I
think this is it. Whether it be some sort divine cycle, or coincidence or something else, the world is changing, fast. Somehow the Mayans knew this
would happen, and many of us are starting to discover it for ourselves. For me, this discovery more or less just happened. It occupied my mind. It
wasn't told to me. It wasn't forced on me. And it's still there. And it won't ever leave.
So I end by saying, occupy your own mind. This is the next step in human evolution, and the Mayans predicted it many years ago. You are the creator
of the reality you want. 2012 will be an amazing year. Thanks for reading.
