The list could go on.
You, my faithful readers, can probably name at least three different sources of enlightened information coming our way.
From my own studies I have been able to "choose a better thought", "be kind anyway", exercise "gratitude" and "generosity" more and more.
So, the judgmental nature of my socialization has diminished. Trained to "diagnose" I have even learned to not indulge in that form of professional power-tripping.
As one who writes this blog and for those who read it you will know that what I am experiencing more and more is the Field of Love. Fear and Anxiety are becoming mere signals to pay attention. We needn't harm ourselves and others by such indulgences as "addiction to adrenaline".
Far more fun to enjoy people as they are, even when they are offensive. Not to enjoy the offense but to understand that everyone has their story and compassionately attending to their story, to "see" them, lets them become less attached to their own destructive thoughts, beliefs and actions. Witnessing allows for easier change.
And now, 12/21/12 at 10:05am comes upon us.
So, why am I celebrating on the 22nd and not on the 21st.
First, I want to be at home and able to "receive" more freely.
Second, I wish to celebrate on the 22nd our having "stepped over the threshold" and; into The Age of Aquarius!
Well, what if? What if this all just a bunch of crap? Could be yet I experience, as a sociologist, therapist and person, that when individuals share in beliefs the beliefs tend to be actualized.
Heh, noticed lately how many people are sharing wonderfully happy, inspiring, organizing, sharing and caring via the internet?
It is happening, isn't it?
