Are the Christian End Times coming soon, with the Tribulation, the pouring out of the Vials of Wrath? Is the Norse Ragnarok coming soon, with an endless winter and a war like no one has seen before? Is there a great catastrophe Apkallu? Will the US economy collapse soon? Will the world end on December 21, 2012?
Will the Age of Aquarius start this year? Will there be world peace? One stable world government?
Every culture, every religion, every faith, foretells trouble coming at some point, or great peace and prosperity. Regardless of who you ask, no one thinks the world will stay the same. All prophecies are of change. Even politicians foretell change.
But when it comes down to it, all we can do is do our own work and help those we can. Whether we move toward a stable one world government or towards complete anarchy, it’s not what happens that matters but how we respond. Our responses bring learning and growth, and we move forward on our journey. If all things stayed the same, we would be stagnant and never grow, never change, never move forward.
Our world is very turmoilous, but we walk the border between this world and other worlds even more turmoilous than ours. In the liminal space, change is the only constant. If you don’t change, you die.
Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself. Experience your world today, in this moment, let change take a hold of you and move you forward. The journey is nothing more than placing one foot forward, then another. Live in the now. Respond to the now. Make a difference in the now. Don’t waste the now. Each moment is Da’ath, Knowing. Each moment, we stand in the Abyss and are changed by it. Unless we are asleep. Awaken, oh sleeper, leave your dreams of tomorrow, your memories of yesterday, and see the landscape before you, see the now, step forward, and change!
