As we near the end of 2012 and the Mayan Calendar we may be wondering what is ending? Or could it be a beginning?
I am living in a new world – one that I did not know existed a while back. This world has always been here running parallel to or simultaneously with the world I inhabited but I was unaware of it. There are many portals to this world through which we can step and in first discovering it we find ourselves being drawn back and forth across the threshold over and over as we continue to make the choice to live in this new world. We get pulled from the real world back into the world of illusion as it is quite magnetic for many reasons.
Our collective past has us believing that this physical world we inhabit is real and concrete and that we have little affect on it. We believe that what is IS and if we don’t like it we must fight it or put up with it. We believe that because there are aspects to this concrete world that don’t fit our vision of an ideal world that it does not nor ever will exist for us. We believe that because there are people in this world that hold mal-intent, selfishness, greed and dishonesty that those forces will too often win out. And in holding onto these beliefs we hold this broken world in place. We hold ourselves in it.
We are not here to suffer and yet so many do. We believe such strange things about suffering such as it is our lot in life.
We deserve to be happy. We deserve to be fulfilled.
We deserve to have comforts in life.
We deserve companionship and enjoyment.
Regardless of our circumstances we deserve these things.
No matter what, no matter how low or bad things go we can raise ourselves up to this new world. The portals are within each of us to access. And each time we pass through one another is there through which we can step. And yes we will step back and forth each time as we raise ourselves and get drawn back down and raise ourselves again until we pass through the portal a final time to reside there a while before moving through the next and the next and the next. Once we have been there we can go there again and again until we finally call it home.
I visit my old worlds often because I have many people in my life that still live in them. But I do not stay there anymore. My world is a world similar to what John Lennon sang of in his beautiful song “Imagine”. Some day I hope you’ll join us….
