This is it! The year it all changes. Maybe? Yes. Of course!
Self fulfilling prophesies of both endings of old ways and beginnings of new ways. Possibly predicted using curious knowledge of mathematical patterns, or possibly just coincidental, and/or possibly the placebo effect. One way or another it appears to be 2012 will be a grand tipping point in the life of the planet and all it’s Earthlings.
We will naturally find more of what we seek (because that’s the way the brain works), and what I seek is more and more people sharing their deepest truths of what they most want and what they are most enthusiastic about offering, more creative types helping people share these most valuable stories, more people choosing to focus on finding more sustainable, local, and enjoyable ways to get the things they need to be their best, and more people being more free.
And by free, I mean free in the sense of giving of themselves freely – expressing all their body’s overabundance of matter and energy in a plethora of creative and meaningful and rewarding ways that represents the highest qualities of the self, physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. By free, I mean unencumbered by rigid rules, laws, social standards that quantify life into limited and linear boxes. By free, I mean, open ended exchanges of resources that are more in the vein of respiration, with molecules of oxygen, nitrogen, and others from all over the universe briefly flowing into the body, the body taking only what it needs to flourish, and then exhaling out all the extra carbon dioxide and such into the rest of the universe, to be shared by anyone who happens to come along next who finds it useful…
In essence, I am looking to see a world of humans waking up to how to be an awesome part of the vast and wonderful system of nature that is our little blue-green planet on the Western spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy.
Here’s to Freedom!
There is new evidence in the study of human consciousness that suggests that the highest level of consciousness – that of the awareness of one’s own thoughts in relation to the external world – is the product of a network of regional hubs in the brain all talking to one another.
It might be useful to think of this consciousness process as being similar to the process of triangulation when searching for the source of a signal. One takes several different receivers, from very different areas, with each one showing the general direction of the signal (but not the distance it is from the receiver), and combines all the data to pinpoint a very precise location of the signal. In the human brain, we have several different kinds of “receivers” that collect certain kinds of information from the world (both inside the body and out). In higher conscious awareness, it’s very likely that each of these regions sends it’s most useful data up into the “cloud” where it gets combined together for a single, tip of the iceberg, sensory impression of “What’s up?”
Of course as with any attempt to pinpoint anything more complex than an actual pinpoint, there will always be more information that lies beneath the surface. The rest of the iceberg might not be consciously visible, but it’s there, and it’s really, really big. And that’s why what we’re conscious of is nothing compared to what we know on a deeper, unconscious, level. Conscious certainly does allow us many wonderful opportunities to play around with ideas, but it’s always important to be conscious of the fact that consciousness is limited, and that trusting “instinct” the body’s less conscious awareness and communication system, is often at least as valuable, especially in the case of navigating through a very complex environment where there might be many enormous obstacles that only the unconscious mind is aware of…
