In approximately one year on December 21, 2012 the world will be watching and waiting for an event that has gained the attention of people worldwide. Whether or not an actual cataclysmic event occurs is a topic open for debate. The recent Hollywood blockbuster “2012” has certainly helped to give exposure and fuel the idea that the end of the world is fast approaching. Not only has the idea of 2012 been given more media attention, I believe more and more people are morbidly anticipating the coming date with alarming enthusiasm. So will it be Niburu, massive solar flares, malevolent aliens, nuclear Armageddon, or some kind of viral outbreak? Ponder this, does it really matter?
When I first heard the idea of 2012 a few years ago I was not only intrigued but I found myself getting caught up in the idea of a coming world catastrophe. Whenever I had free time to surf the web I was reading anything I could find and watching any video about 2012. I was visiting forums and discussing my views on what might happen. I looked to any source I could find to try and find an expert opinion on what the future might hold. However, as time passed so did changes in my life and I found myself more aligned on family matters rather than focusing on the doom and gloom. It wasn’t until a few months ago that 2012 found its way back into my life once again.
This past summer “waiting for 2012” turned out to become a favorite phrase between a co-worker and myself. We would joke with each other and talk about how 2012 was right around the corner, so no matter what life threw at us it wouldn’t matter because the end was near. I wouldn’t say that I was in a depressed state; rather my life had become predictable and mundane. The routines of work and family life were starting to wear on my positive outlook on life. Even though I loved my family immensely I couldn’t help but to anticipate a coming change, any change that would put an end to the monotony. So after succumbing to the rationale that the lottery wasn’t going to save my life I found enthusiasm once again with the idea of 2012. Finding solace in the end of the world was for me strangely comforting. I don’t want to send the message that I was depressed and suicidal because I wasn’t. I just let the stresses of work, ever increasing global conflicts, and current events lead me to believe that maybe 2012 would be the best for us all. Looking back, what is alarming to me now is how many people subscribe to the idea that the world will soon end, and I have concluded that these same people not only believe but anticipate the coming doom.
Fortunately, for myself, I saw the path where I was headed and did an about face. I no longer wanted to be a part of the crowd that willfully wanted to see the world end. What really changed my attitude was when I immersed myself into researching the laws of attraction and the power of intention. What I discovered was that by focusing on the doom and gloom I was attracting to myself the same energy I was sending out. By believing and hoping for 2012 to come I was basically telling the universe that I didn’t value my life and that I had given up hope on my future. In the movie Shawshank Redemption, Morgan Freeman’s character Red says, “Get busy living, or get busy dying.” In essence, that’s what it really meant for me, and I wanted to get busy living. Once I changed my attitude and fixated on the positive I no longer wished for the 2012 apocalypse, but opened my heart and mind to other possibilities.
There is more than one possibility that could occur on 2012. However Hollywood and the media have only focused on the disaster scenarios. And how can you really blame them; the focus is put on what sells and let’s face it, death and gloom sell. The other scenario I am putting my faith in is 2012 and the new age of enlightenment. The great awakening as it has been referred will benefit all of mankind. I believe as humans we will finally start to awaken to who we truly are. We will start to unlock our true spiritual awareness and remember who we truly are. The universal consciousness will start to manifest within us and we will no longer be suppressed by the forces of greed and the hunger for power by the world’s elite. Yes, I can now say that I am consciously “Waiting for 2012.”
