The Mayans were an ancient, wise civilization that lived in what is now Central America. They were advanced in many areas, including astronomy and mathematics, which allowed them to calculate an amazingly accurate calendar. The Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012, so many have prophesized this date as the end of the world. As we near the end of the Mayan calendar, we are deluged with books and movies about this important event. Is it Armageddon, or just another day? Will we be getting out the holiday decorations or meeting our maker?
A “judgment day” is coming, but it’s not what we were led to expect. We are the judges, and must make a decision about what is happening around us. It is the time of reckoning and truth, and is occurring right at this very moment. We must judge where humanity is, decide what we are capable of becoming, and choose the role each of us is to play in its continuing evolution.
Even though most of us are not aware of it, we are continually making energetic choices in our lives. Pioneering research by modern physicists has shown that we are connected to a vast, universal energy field, so what happens to each of us affects all of humanity. I see this energy field as the physical manifestation of our spirituality – it also connects us to our higher power. Every time we stay courageous in the midst of adversity, each moment we are kind to a stranger, and with each act of forgiveness, we are making a positive energetic choice. Our powerful, positive frequencies influence all beings in an uplifting way.
The opposite is also true. Negativity also travels through our universal energy field, and increases the likelihood that humanity will follow a more difficult path. Negativity does not mean the anger, fear or pain that you are willing to work through. It is the unwillingness to resolve issues, the need to hold onto judgment and the feeling of “woe is me.”
You may be surprised to hear this, but those who can’t pull themselves up from hatred and other maladies of the soul are still dearly loved. As Christ’s parable of the prodigal son teaches, we will all be welcomed home with a party to match all parties – no matter our choices here on earth. Divine energy is a compassionate energy. Heaven and Hell are right here, right now, and are of our own making. It is we who decide our realm of existence.
In making our choices, we must trust that we will be guided during our difficult times. Our energy field also connects us to wisdom, which can reveal itself in the most unusual and mysterious ways. Wisdom is within us and around us. It shows up in the form of intuition, animals, coincidence and earth’s beauty. It also manifests as gamma rays, photon bursts and magnetic resonance. Wisdom is spirituality and science. It is our instinctive right, and if followed, allows us to become our own spiritual teachers. Our personal wisdom can be our best teacher during this influential time.
So regarding December 12, 2012, enjoy the passionate discourse, suspenseful movies and televised computer generated catastrophes. But after the popcorn is eaten and the lights come up, remember that our actions today determine what greets us on the 22nd of December 2012.
