2012 New Year’s resolutions for the new paradigm

There is a shift occurring, a new paradigm emerging and new resolutions are warranted as we face the 2012 Mayan calendar and silence those Nostradamus predictions. It is a time we are being called into our greatness and our New Year’s resolutions should support it.

We’ve all heard the buzz, that on December 21, 2012 the world will end, or a major part of earth will be destroyed. These doomsday predictions are based upon the 5125 year Mayan calendar ending on the notorious date, 12/21/12. Others remind us that Nostradamus predicted cataclysmic events caused by a celestial body, like Planet X or Nibiru, passing too close to earth (even I touched upon this in my suspense thriller, A Matter of Degrees).

I say it’s time to shift our perspective on 2012.

I do believe that there is something to 12/21/12, and it is about the end, but not the end of the world. It is about the end of an era and the rebirth of humankind’s spirituality or spiritual evolution. I mentioned in my earlier post, the meaning of 11:11 is about new beginnings. Humanity is in a time of rebirthing, shifting, and transformation. We are evolving as a species on a physical and spiritual level.

We have a choice. We can sit back, watch, fight it, resist, and stay in the old paradigm. Or, we can say yes to what’s emerging and take off.

If we say yes, we will witness the rebirth of humankind, from being a three-dimensional being to one evolving and living the Christ Consciousness. The great wayshower, Jesus, told us that one day, humankind will do the things he did.  He taught us that the human race would evolve and be capable of doing even greater things (than he did). The period we are living in is about metamorphosis and this type of change will be accompanied by anxiety and confusion. It is the lack of clarity which can keep us from our soul’s purpose, which is to influence this great paradigm shift.

As I approach 2012, I have surrendered the old New Year’s resolutions I usually pledge. Gone are my promises to exercise more, eat right or lose weight. For 2012, I’ve developed New Year’s resolutions to support the 2012 paradigm shift and the reason I have chosen to be here.

In 2012, I promise to:

  • Perform random acts of kindness and smile more
  • Practice mindfulness and be in the moment
  • Meditate daily with a commitment to go deeper
  • Release my attachments to the world
  • Love more (including myself)
  • Continue the art of circulation, the flow of giving and receiving
  • Recognize the divinity in everyone I meet
  • Forgive everyone
  • Express gratitude for being
  • Daily affirmative prayer and treatments

Through adopting spiritual resolutions and contemplating the changes we need to make, we recreate the emerging self, much like the caterpillar emerging from the cocoon into the chrysalis.

Remain open to what’s happening within, and say yes. Turn inward and recognize the truth that we are not human beings, but spiritual beings, and God is within each of us and not some bearded white man in the sky keeping a score card.

With any change there is fear, resistance and unease. No matter what we experience in 2012, whether it is struggle, challenge, or even mayhem, these events will cause us to choose. By being spiritually centered we will have the clarity needed to determine whether we live as the human being we were born, or morph into our greatness, and fly.

For those searching for their purpose in life – this is why you have come here. Now is the time to raise the consciousness of the planet. It is your time.

Fly, baby, fly!

    I love this post. Your desire to love more is a noble goal. You reference Jesus and his works. Jesus showed his love many times especially through his transcendent act at the cross but there is another side to His story. It is as important to look at whom He loved if we are to use his example as a roadmap for our own lives. Though a holy man, Jesus didn't care for the religious elite, considering most of them to be hypocrites. He never attended dinner events or conferences with the important people of his day and he didn’t embrace the socially popular unless first embraced by them. In fact, they reviled Him because He was considered a troublemaker. He ran with a diverse crowd consisting of two-dollar whores, estranged wives, drunks, sinners, the sick, the infirmed, and the social reprobates. The dirty, smelly people we see standing on the street corner, sleeping in a cardboard box in an alley or under a train trestle. The very people that we drive by on a daily basis while pretending that we don’t see them. Alex, man was created to be social. Is there any wonder Adam needed an Eve? On a certain level, we have an innate desire to belong to one other. Being destitute isn’t a third as damaging to a human soul as being invisible. It’s very easy to love someone who is like us, who believes the same way we do, or is socially popular. Therefore, I propose that this year we do love more. We love the previously unloved, the unlovable, the great unwashed, the socially inept, the social reprobates, the others, the unfamiliar, the unpopular, and the people who just can’t seem to get it together. If we do, then one day we might find that we no longer need a resolution to do something that should come very naturally to all of us. Love your thoughts and writing. You make me think. – Wes

    Wes, Thank you for sharing such wonderful insights, and I absolutley agree. It's easy to love the loveable and much more challenging to love our enemies. I guess that means we have to make amends. So happy to see you here, Wes.:D
