Many people have been using the past week or so to review their recent past (2011), to think about where they are right now and to make plans and preparations for the future. 2012 promises to be a year of change and excitement!
There are some people who believe that the winter solstice on December 21, 2012, will mark the end of the world based on the “ending” of the Mayan calendar. The Mayans, however, were more farsighted than many in our time.
The Mayans understood that to move forward with new thoughts and plans we have to release the past. According to one belief, a 25,630 year “life cycle” of our planet is ending this year and another will initiate. If this is true then it behooves us to do everything possible to prepare for that change.
2012 can be a year of release for us all. A time to let go of the past, including thoughts of anger, fear and regret. This can be the year we commit to living authentically as the unique life force that we each are individually. All of us have a gift to give to others, a gift that is our ultimate purpose. Giving this gift allows us to bless the planet and has the added benefit of providing the peace of mind that so many seek.
Scripture says that “time and unforeseen circumstances befall us all.” Since change is the only constant in the Universe it stands to reason that living in the moment, with reflection of the past and an eye on the future, insures that we get the most out of each and every day.
