End of the World or its Bright Beginning?

Well, here we are folks, the moment we’ve all been waiting for and wondering about: Winter Solstice 2012.

We now stand at the threshold, the turning point between light and dark, old and new, as it is every year at this time. Here lies a grand gateway to the future, if we choose to make it so.

This ancient Pagan holiday of holding vigil through the darkest night and celebrating the returning light is largely overshadowed by the more popular Christmas and Hannukah celebrations. This point in the year wheel has always been an opportunity to let go of the old, to enter into the empty space of “between” and find hope in a new beginning.

This year is a little different. Whether you believe the prophecies that say the world will end, or that spaceships will emerge from alignment with the galactic center, or sinners will be lifted up in divine rapture, or new agers will suddenly be transported into another dimension, what is unarguable is that there are more people around the globe focusing energies at this one moment, than ever before on this pivotal holiday.

If our beliefs create reality, then what you believe at this time is crucial to what emerges. 

Here’s how I see it:

We are reaching the point where evolution becomes conscious. Rather than being passive recipients, we have the tools to be conscious co-creators of our future. In fact, our future demands it.

Here’s where the initiation begins. The perfect storm of catastrophe’s gathering on the horizon will meet humanity at its most intelligent, connected, technologically empowered, and creative stage of development we’ve ever been in. These crises will initiate a new organizing principle, which I call a change in operating systems, from the love of power to the power of love. We don’t lose our power to move to the heart chakra, we stand in it, our feet reaching all the way down to the sacred earth, our spirits reaching for the stars. We are the axis mundi, the vertical channel that connects them

2012 isn’t the end or the beginning, but entry into that liminal place between. It is the point where the values that have been on the fringe–such as meditation, yoga, alternative communities, organic food, peace movements, gay rights, etc.–now move just over the line to become more mainstream. It is where the effects of human civilization on things like climate instability become irreversible, and we head down the tunnel of monumental global change.
