I am able to feel a great sense of beauty as I look out into the blue and orange sunset and wonder what lies beyond the universe. I have a special star that I always notice in night skies. It twinkles at me incandescently and looks like a multi-coloured space ship, hurlting towards earth. I like it because it appears to sparkle every colour of the rainbow. Personally I am interested in chakra healing and colour plays a massive part in my sense of being in the world.
I know a little about the world I live in, only not as much as some and not as much as I would like to. I have a young family who are the most important thing to me and I spend a lot of time organising their lives for them.
I have been moved by the recent W ikileaks events and I would consider my self a supporter. I believe it has given a certain amount of power to the people. It has given me a thirst for knowledge about the world I live in and I have been driven to go out and seek the truth. Honesty has played such a massive role in my own personal journey and I am very sincere, a little too sincere at times. I have been fed up with the corruption in the world and have at times often felt powerless, helpless but desperate to change the world. I have spent the last 16 years waiting for this moment and I am fascinated by every move.
The world is in crisis, everywhere and it is hard to watch peoples lives destroyed in front of my eyes.
December 21st 2012 is imanent and some are looking to the skies for comfort. There are lots of different ideas of what may or maynot happen. Ideas that include a planetary collision, a shift in the polar extremes and a visitation from an alien life form. Myth plays such an important role in all cultures and I have enjoyed reading the stories that exist on world wide web.
But what role does myth actually play, amidst all the chaos of the world? In my head I am able to think past, present and future. I am rarely in the present, I spend some of my time in the past, reflecting on my life. Most of my thinking is done in the future. What colour lip gloss will I wear tomorrow? I must shave my legs when I have a shower. Sometimes, when I watch the news, my mind is sent spiraling out of control. I can find it so hard to process what is actually happening right in front of my eyes. There are no answers or I can find no solutions. So I look to the skies to save me. I am able to remove my mind from the atrocities of humanity and ground my self in a transcendental way of being. My mind does not need to exist on earth because I am connecting with something greater than this earth, the universe. And I am connecting with ‘it’ via Babylonian mythology.
I lied earlier, I challenged myself on my sincerity and forced myself have one of those rare moments when I am dishonest. I said I am rarely in the present. Not true. I have been trained to be present and it has, to my amazement, transformed my life. It has allowed me to connect with the transpersonal aspect of my self without the myth of the Babylonians. Perhaps those who seek the answers to the chaos of planet earth, in the skies, need to take a few deep breaths and have a few deep moments of being present.
Meanwhile the powerful of this world continue to argue over holy ground, over who gets the best jobs and the most prestigious education and whose house will remain standing the longest. And oil and drugs will continue to be controlled by military industrial complexes, via fusion centres. Ancient pathways will continue to be disputed. I will accept I am a slave to capitalism. But as usual I will wake tomorrow, put on my lip gloss, blow dry my hair, change my status to married on Facebook and pretend to my children the world is fine, fine, fine.
The Age of Enlightenment grounded humanity into a period of thinking. We’ve spent too much time thinking, that time has come to an end. Now it is time to ask, ‘how do you feel today and everyday ahead of your godforsaken life? Welcome to the new age, the age of receptivity and illumination.
