The End of Days

It is the last day of 2012. We are still around although the news is not good. School shootings. Al Qaeda. Dismal economy. Fiscal cliff. Hurricanes. Earthquakes. Cancer and disease. If we continue to look at conventional wisdom, it is a doom and gloom scenario. I've heard a great many religiously oriented people talking about these being the "end times".
The thing is, I'm not buying it! Yes. Many things in our world appear negative. There are even events taking place that could allow people to believe we are at the end of days. After all, ancient prophesy talks about such things. Still, I firmly believe what happens is our collective choice. I also happen to believe we have turned a critical corner in the search for truth.

So much of our world--our society--has been based on lies. These lies have been carefully constructed and arranged in order to make us believe the world has to function in certain ways. These ways are designed to benefit just a few instead of all--not the way I believe it was meant to be. These lies have been so prevalent in the past we just spout them off like second nature even though, when you look more closely at them, these same beliefs don't have a leg to stand on.

I believe more and more people are waking up to the lies every day. It is this waking up process that leads us all toward a more positive future. The hardest part of solving any problem is recognizing you have a problem in the first place. Once people are awake to the lies, they can work to change them.

The end of days is a series of words designed to make people fear that the way of life we have come to depend on will end. Honestly, the thought of life as we know it coming to an end is not a bad thing in my book. The lies, the tragedy, the heartbreak our world has become needs to end! Many of our lives will end if we allow all this to continue without intervention!

The "end" is not a bad thing! Something always has to end before we can have a new beginning. When we focus on the end, we have no future. Maybe it's time to focus on the beginning--a time we can rebirth ourselves and our world into a new, brighter creation!
