End of the World Tomorrow?

ClockI’ve been thinking about the end-of-the-world vs. the birth of a new-world subject. Apparently, we all have this week. How could we not? And how could I not? I asked to understand what’s happening and have been inundated with information from many sources, some of which I’ve shared here. Much of it could be summed up this way: With some percentage of us living from loving hearts and actions, the world and we will shift in that direction and perhaps all of us will be led into the new consciousness by those who chose the path of Higher Love. Some of it is advice for those who want to lead: Be still, go within; listen to God/Universe/Higher Self, and always, no matter what, practice kindness.

I haven’t kept any of the ‘wrath of God/Armageddon’ materials. I always run away from the wrathful, fearsome God. I’m not drawn there, and if the only God is the God of payback, I’m sixty and I guess I’ll find out soon enough. We are responsible for our thoughts and actions–I guess it comes down to HOW responsible are we?

We have been shook up some. Even if we haven’t lost loved ones, our jobs, homes or possessions due to insanity, the economy, or disastrous Mother Nature events, we’re not blind. We can see the pain on the faces of people we know or those in the news. I was wondering recently: Will Mother Nature shake so hard, almost all of us are gone? (And what does it mean to be ‘gone’ from earth?) Will we suffer through three days of darkness? Will our homes and businesses be ransacked, our stored food and water, stolen? I suppose all of these things could happen, but what if all those possibilities aren’t the point? What if each of us is supposed to be shook up enough that we awaken one day and say, “Oh, my God! I have totally misunderstood why I’m here, why we’re all here. I see! I see!”

I like to think that a group awakening is the truth—that things don’t have to escalate to the point of total destruction. I ask myself, ‘Why do I feel that way? I know there’s an afterlife, because I left my body once and was called back for my children. We’re all going to die sooner or later, so why do I care if everything is totally destroyed now?’ And the answer came: Because total destruction means we humans have failed miserably at understanding who we are and why we are born on earth. We are born to be Higher Love and to be loved, to share our lives with each other and to lend a hand to those who need it. We’ve become so attached to our own piles of gold, from mini-piles to maxi-piles, that we believe we can’t share—that there is simply not enough. There is enough. There is more than enough if we’re all in this together.

Try not to worry about the world ending on 12.21.12. The truth is, we humans come and we go and most of us will return to the great wheel of time to try again. Leaving our bodies is not the end. It’s simply a doorway to bodiless being, where we can review the lives we have just lived, to learn where we left ‘The Path’ and how we can do better next time around.

Look into the eyes of everyone you meet tomorrow and sense them. How are they doing? It’s not about us as individuals or families or protecting our stuff—it’s about all of us, in this world and life together. Perhaps all these troubles and fears are an invitation to a better way to live and maybe that’s the point.

    • Yes, we’re still here, Mike. I hope we humans can figure out how to be without the destruction and chaos we create from the way we live now. I pray we get to stay for our lifetimes and our children and their children’s lifetimes–but there is no way to know what adjustments are necessary or coming. I hope your holidays are happy, too. Take care. I’ll be over to see your poem.

  1. well said, Pam. I don’t think you can go wrong with love and kindness, as far as the bigger picture is concerned. But as far as human (and all species’) survival on planet Earth, we have to take it a step further. The problem is that we have simply overcharged mother Nature’s credit card, and life as we know it cannot continue at our current rate of consumption and carbon emissions. The tricky thing is that a lot of what caused the problem wasn’t necessarily caused by unlovingness. In fact, most of the comforts we enjoy in modern day life that are destroying the very ecosystem we depend on (cars, planes, AC, electric light, computers, etc) were created to make life easier for each other, which you could really consider an act of caring and love. So I would add “truth” and “awareness” to the list of things we have to embrace. We can no longer afford to be removed from the rippling effects of our lifestyles on the planet and all of its inhabitants, because even if it’s done from a place of caring and love (like buying a bunch of plastic toys for our kids for christmas), it is not an act of love in the bigger picture if it is done in ignorance of the wider effects it has and trashes the planet and the chance for others to live and love on it. It doesn’t mean we can no longer give gifts but we have to rethink our acts of love and kindness. For example, instead of the plastic toys, a trip to the woods with the kids to go sledding or play hide and go seek may not only show the same amount of caring, but ultimately make everyone happier campers. And that, to me, is taking love and kindness to a level of consciousness that is commensurate with the physical ecological realities of life on a warming planet.

    • Hi Sven,

      You are so right–the motivations of gift-giving may be good (or not, like keeping up with the stuff the kids next door have), but are they truly good if they destroy where we live? We can’t breathe out in space–not even on high mountains. We can’t live under water, either. We can’t live outdoors in some areas of the planet where it’s too cold or too hot. This limits where we can live, and we can’t live without food and water, so where would we go if what gives us life, Earth, is destroyed? Some people have built underground homes that are stocked with food, water and weapons, but just one good shaking by Mother Earth and they will be gone just like everyone else, should the worst happen, which to me is destruction of the beauty of life.

      It’s so easy not to notice or care about the systems and beauty of nature, but in losing contact, we have lost the knowing that we came from the Earth, we are made of the Earth, and we will die on the Earth and feed the planet when our bodies stop working. In losing contact, though, we don’t know we are her children, just like the birds, our pets, the trees, the sky, we are all here because Mother Earth holds this place in space for us. I was reading, Jamie Sams I think, that every cell of our Mother’s body was made joyous, loving, healthy and strong for us. The trees, the stones, the animals–all of life exists to help us–the destructive humans.

      I take comfort in knowing that if enough of us won’t stop and learn, stop and see what we are doing, within a couple hundred years, all that we’ve created will break down and change into something our Mother can use for growth. Who knows? When she is whole and healthy again maybe a more advanced civilization will ‘drop in’ and love her for who she is.

  2. Hi Pam….This is a beautiful insightful post…I have so missed your ramblings!! There has been so much darkness in the world over the last weeks and months. kim

    • There has been so much darkness that, at times, it truly is too much. It does make us wonder about why we come to Earth and what is important. The answers won’t come from the way we live now. Change must be, but will it? I don’t know. I guess one thing all of us humans will do is wait together. Thanks, Kim. Hope you’re not too cold way up there!

  3. Pam,
    I do believe that all the pain and suffering and loss is meant to be a wake up call for those folks who are still asleep, as your post suggests. And with each disaster, some few more souls choose a different road, the road to light. And I think those who leave their bodies as part of the crises have agreed to do so, at the level of spirit, so that the rest of us may learn what we came here to learn.

    Much wisdom in your post.
    Blessings,
    Alix

    • I know your wisdom on some level, Alix. I KNOW we choose our lives and any sacrifices we might make for the higher good. I don’t know if I will ever adjust, though, to men gunning down children. I even know it happens around the world all the time–to children and women. I believe it’s still acceptable for a married man in India to set his wife on fire if she isn’t agreeable. It is my prayer for the new year that ‘more of us learn what we came here to learn.’ Thank you for adding your wisdom to this post.
      Blessings your way, too,
      Pam
