Is This the End of Your World?

December 20, 2012

New Beginning
Written by Paula O’Sullivan

My son said to me the other evening, ‘Mom is the world really going to end on the 21st December? I know you know something about this, won’t you please tell me. I feel you are like a prophet or something’. And I replied, ‘Well if you’re power hungry and egotistical, son, then your world will begin to end, in fact it already has begun!’ We both laughed.

No I’m not a prophet, some of us are just here on Earth to show a different perspective, way showers if you like, pattern interrupters, that’s what we are. You hear so much about the world ending, media hype and mockery, disaster movies etc., so much that some people haven’t a clue what is happening, and others are almost frightened to death at what might happen. So I just thought I’d share what I feel about all this from my different perspective.

Now I’m not going to explain about planetary alignments, energy shifts etc., there is plenty of information out there for anyone interested in this. Do I believe in it all, yes I do, I can feel it myself, as a spiritual person.

What I need to share with you is this basic information that will help you through these trying times. Let me ask you a few questions. Have you had a good year so far? Has your life been full of struggles, relationship conflicts etc. etc.? If yes read on, you need to know this.

From my perspective, 2012 has been all about releasing the old, unwanted and unnecessary in our lives. The 21st December 2012 represents a new beginning of consciousness. The New World. The New Heaven and New Earth, which I believe this text from the Bible also refers to. “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea” (Revelation 21:1).[1] I believe that the sea represents what separates us. I don’t believe that it means the sea will actually disappear. Let me explain further for those of you who don’t understand yet.

The old world is what we have now. We generally don’t love ourselves, so we don’t really know how to love other either. We judge and criticise and condemn ourselves and others. We are separated from each other in our minds; we see each other’s differences, skin colour, wealth, poverty, education, possessions etc. We see that we are different to them. We are focused mostly in our ego minds. We see it as us and them. Even though we are all human, we all live and breathe, smile and cry, have feelings and emotions, we do not see the connection with each other. We have become selfish and self-absorbed.

Religions have compounded the separations between nations, as beliefs differ; we feel we are right, and that they are wrong, that we are saved because we believe something that another doesn’t , enough so that people die because of their different beliefs. Living in our Ego minds, we look for offences and differences so we can defend our tightly held beliefs. The Religions have programmed their believers to think of their God and Saviour as an external entity, a something outside of themselves, something that you are not worthy of to have within yourself. Thus, forever leaving you forever helpless and powerless. There are many religious symbols around the world of the unripe pine cone which represents the pineal gland, or third eye. It’s the seat of the soul for spiritual awakening. The fact that the pine cones are unripe says it all!

Some are waiting for the return of their Saviour. But what if I suggest to you that we are made in Gods / Spirits / Creators) image, that the Kingdom of God (or Good) is already within you? What if you knew that part of that Higher Power / Spirit / Creator, whatever you believe, was already inside you and everyone else too? How different would you view your world then? Would we be killing each other then? Would we be allowing people to starve to death? Would we allow the tortures, the abuses, the dishonesty? Would we harm another in our thoughts, words or deeds? Would we? No, I feel we wouldn’t, because we would see that we are all one. We would see that we are all connected, the same, under the same stars, moon and sun. We would begin to work together, not against each other.

We would then be beginning to live from our hearts. 2012 from my perspective is the era of Christ Consciousness. Your Saviour hasn’t to yet arrive; it was already here all along, inside of each of you, where you never thought to look. Just waiting for you to wake up and realize the Love, the Good, the God, the Spirit, the Higher Power that is already within each of us. We are here to save ourselves and each other together.

We all have Free Will. We all have a Choice. You can choose to stay in the Old World way of Mind based decisions, or you can now see that we have an opportunity to move to Heart based decisions and A new World, a new beginning.

So you’ve been having a rough year have you? Most of us have. It’s been a battle between head and heart really. Head (Ego mind) wanted everything to go their way. It was full of expectations of how things must be. When that didn’t happen, you felt powerless didn’t you? Reality is usually different from our expectations. Maybe you tied up your feelings of worth in your possessions, or relationships, and felt like a failure if they didn’t work out? Ego mind had fun this year! Maybe the conflicts began because you needed to be right every time? Being right, makes others wrong you know, it gets the defences up. Guaranteed to brew an argument! Perhaps you didn’t communicate honestly, more lies, more deceiving… drives the wedge between relationships. So are you tired of the same old, same old scenarios yet?

This is what 2012 and especially the 21st December is all about as far as I’m concerned. It’s a choice between living and continuing your life and your relationships through your Ego mind, or between living through your Heart. You already know how the old game goes, so I won’t go into that. Here is how the new game gets played if you’d like to join me we could find a New Heaven and a New Earth and discover that the sea that separates us, no longer exists, because we are all one and connected in Love.

*Let go of expectations of how things should be, and start accepting things as the really are. Then you can decide if you would like to make some positive changes.

*When making decisions, ask yourself, ‘Is this for the Highest Good of All?’

*Decide to be Kind, instead of being right.

*Become more accepting, observing, not judging. Develop qualities that make you feel good and will help others to feel good too.

* Learn to love and accept yourself. Be kind to yourself. We mush nourish ourselves from the well first before we can nourish others. This takes time, bit by bit.

*Build up a sense of self-worth, so that you no longer tie up your happiness in other people or things. So that if those things are gone you have developed a sense of self and you will not crumble or dissolve when they are gone. You will then find that happiness is also within you. I developed an attitude of Gratitude. Now everything is enough, I no longer have those cravings for more, more, more. I no longer see what is lacking. I am satisfied, I am content, I am at peace. The Ego mind is never satisfied, you must be aware of this. Living from your heart will bring you peace.

* Stop trying to control everyone and everything. We can only control our own behaviour.

*Communicate honestly with people, speak your truth, openly and honestly and move away from fear to love… your heart will guide you, use your head to reason out consequences of your actions and to sum it up really simply, I basically treat others as I would like to be treated, even if they don’t treat me that way, I show them how. We reap what we sow, so what seeds are you sowing? Look in your garden, what is growing there? Is it a barren plot? Or a weed strewn heap? Or a garden full of blossoms that bring you joy?
Old World, New World? Your choice, your thoughts, your words, your actions have already begun to create it. The old ways are moving away.

So is your world ending or just beginning?
