HAPPY HOLIDAYS everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying a
Saturnalia filled with fun, friends and family. My son is making us a
traditional turkey dinner (a more recent tradition given that the wild turkey is indigenous to North America), my daughter and my friend will be joining us., my youngest and her hubby and other special friends will be here in our hearts. The commercialism has fallen by the wayside with us this year…no gifts, no tree, just good people sharing time together.
Whatever you choose as your greeting there is something about this time of year that has always made people want to celebrate. Winter solstice (December 21st) is the shortest day of the year and in farming
cultures this marked the beginning of winter. I don’t know if they were
celebrating 3 months off plowing and threshing or the days beginning to get longer leading into spring. Then there are all the ancient cultures who
celebrate around the lunar calendar, and in the southern hemisphere they are probably celebrating a coming harvest LOL.
Maybe at the core of it all we just like to collectively acknowledge the passing of one year into the next. 2012 is very special, not because the world didn’t implode, but because 2012 marks the beginning of a new time in human (cultural) evolution. The old paradigms do not work anymore and we are building a new world order founded on equality, freedom, love and brotherhood… things the old regime only gave lip service to. This new order is not a restructuring of politics or economic power… although that will necessarily change over time because of the shift in our priorities (and very nature as people). I have said before we won’t have a better world until we become better people. Once we become better people we will necessarily have a better world. As more and more of us are living this flesh RULED by spirit… the energy shifts are making easier for more and more people to crossover, until there will one day be more compassion than greed and more love than fear. Then we will enter the time of the 8th fire… a time of “Peace on earth & goodwill toward men".
