We tend to create labels, and with labels come roles. Roles lead to expectations and expectations lead to judgment. What would happen, if for one moment, we forgot to judge the experience?
Looking at today's date I see 01/01/2011 and I can't help but think, "oh boy, one year closer..." And by that I mean one year closer to 2012, a controversial date that has been very relevant for many religions, ancient cultures, and philosophers throughout time. There are so many theories out there, and they can be group into three main categories: 1) Those who believe 2012 is just a date and nothing will happen 2) Those who believe 2012 will be the end of human existence 3) Those who believe 2012 will be some sort of spiritual enlightenment or a period of judgement.
From my own perspective, I have always drifted toward the "spiritual enlightenment" theory - however - I do not claim that this is how it will play out. During these times, I feel that it is important to stay open-minded about all the possibilities that exist because we truly do not know what we do not know. Doing what feels good is most important. If the world is coming to an end, then it comes to an end - why worry about it? If the world elevates to a new level of awareness, then it will - why worry about it? If you believe that by raising awareness and "being the change you want to see in the world" can change the outcome, then do that if that is what feels good to you!
The reason I brought up this subject is because I saw an interesting video on facebook this morning where the presenter's argument supported the one-government/human control/doomsday theory of 2012 and refuted the "spiritual enlightenment" theory. I am always open to different perspectives, so was more than willing to hear what the presenter's arguments were. After watching the video, I posted a comment...here's what I said:
"Interesting viewpoint, thank you for sharing. I'm always open to hearing another perspective...and if I wasn't, I would merely be another sheep in the herd.
The ideas and theories presented seem to be well thought out, however, I feel that as humans our perspective is so small, so minuscule, that making logical claims is useless. The more I understand the mind and how it works, the more I realize how robot-like and animalistic we are. There are those that have transcended these states of mind, but the majority haven't - and because of this, our perception of this reality is limited and completely based on the belief systems that were instilled within us. Bottom line is, we know what we know, we know what we don't know, but WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WE DON'T KNOW.
I have done my fair share of research regarding human control and one-world government theories. These are all very interesting and definitely a possibility. How could it not? If we don't know what we don't know, then all possibilities still exist. The main question I have for the speaker is this: what is your purpose? Why present it like this? His ideas blatantly state that we are doomed and that there is no way out of it. How does this information help me?
I have gravitated toward spirituality because it has helped me on so many levels...staying healthy, releasing limiting beliefs, helping others, feeling good...I've seen so much benefit from it - and you know - even if everything I know does not match up with any scientific evidence - I won't care because what I do works and what I do gives me a desire to live and explore the infinite possibilities of this world.
I find it interesting how the speaker uses Bible quotes to support his argument. The Bible, a book whose information could easily have been CHANNELED in the first place! Not to mention, a book which could have easily been edited and manipulated to fit the belief system that existed at the time.There's just so many variables! And that's why I find life so interesting!"
With infinite possibilities, we just don't know what we don't know! The video is posted below if you're interested in watching for yourself!
Enjoy 2011! :)
