Birth 2012 Global Celebration

When I woke up on Saturday, the morning of 12/22/12, I found myself to be alive, and everything around me to continued to exist. 12/12/12 came and gone, so was 12/21/21. Of course, I have not subscribed to these theories of the world coming to an end, but it amazes me how many really believed in it and had even stocked up food. 

This event, the “Birth 2012” was to shift the consciousness to a new freshness devoid of the end of world scenarios. It was a healing event for those who believed in Armageddon and needed a crutch to transform.

Dr. Petra Weldes and Monica Blossom called in to join in for an evening of embodied ritual, song, dance and prayer at the Center for Spiritual Living.   

There is something in me that wants to be a part of the whole universe, and to be a part of all its bits and pieces. So, I joined the group to be part of this part at the Center for spiritual living. The lights were dimmed, and a circle was created with candles in the midst. Started with Meditative Music, dancing to the rhythmic music in four directions, yogic meditation… and in that environment of open heartedness, all of us gathered back in a circle and shared each one’s poem, story, and the feelings… it was a transformative evening.

When we fall the barriers between us and others, and learn to respect the otherness of others, we feel home, we feel in tune with the island we form, and intimately become a participative part of the whole universe with humility.  It was indeed  a good feeling to feel home every moment of the day and in every place.

I pray that, each of us finds an opportunity to participate in events where we can shed this year, particularly those going through difficult times, but all of us to move on with life with a new consciousness.  We can form our own circle with one, two or three of our friends, quietly meditating and reflecting and sharing about life, if nothing else, we can do it ourselves in solitude and the quietness of our own place.

Ultimately, each of us is  responsible for our happiness and happiness is a choice without tying it to things, monies and others.

May we find peace within ourselves, we are merely a strand in this world wide web, but are important for the web to function effectively.

  1. Lovely prayer and covering issues that are so difficult for most of us - not tying our happiness to people, things and money. I am glad we are all here - it is an opportunity for us to do more and better. Blessings to you Mike and all. Blessings
