Bite the Big Burrito - Stability into the New Earth

At year end 2012, we find ourselves heading off the fiscal cliff, trying to make sense about senseless acts of violence perpetrated in recent days and weeks, both at home and abroad.  At the same time we are wondering about the portended changes that were to have occurred on December 21, 2012.

The violence that has occurred over this last month is beyond heartbreaking.  It is well past our ability to absorb the atrocity of it all.  It seems it has become more and more difficult to find a steady center of balance and stability in such unsettled times.  Our moral compasses and spiritual moorings have been profoundly challenged by all that we have witnessed this month.  IN ONE MONTH.  Insanity seems to reign supreme.  I don't discount that this seems true.  It knocks us off our rockers so to speak.

 By my way of viewing things, we have entered into the times we have been waiting for.  Exhilarating, exciting, supremely spiritually fulfilling and tremendously challenging times all wrapped up in a big red chile burrito waiting for us to have a bite. In these destabilizing times we look for some source of help to enable us to follow a steady course.   We can be wracked and wrecked or we can be reborn.  We can starve or we can be nourished.

Barbara Marx Hubbard has been calling this time a birth.  For anyone who has participated in a birthing process, you know it is not an easy process. Difficult  unless, of course, you were unconscious as the birth was occurring.  If so, you didn't  feel or witness the pain, you didn't see the blood, and you  missed the most incredible miracle of birth itself. 

Here are a few tips on how you can stabilize yourself into a smooth transition into new earth.

l.   Recognize the transition is not going to be smooth.  Accept that.
2.  The old game is over, a new game begins.  Therefore, your old ways are over, the new game of you begins.  What kind of new game do you want to play?
3. Bad things happen to good people.  Accept that.  It just is.
4. Do everything you can to deepen and mature your spiritual practices and your spiritual life.
5.  Watch your thoughts.  Stay out of negativity. Period.
6.  Now is the time to clean up your patterns of mistreating, misusing, abusing your body.
7.  Listen to great music, read great books, eat great food.
8.  FORGIVE everyone and everything, no matter what.
9.  Take time out for solitude and personal reflection.
10. Listen to your own inner wisdom.  Don't take anyone's word for anything.

Once we bit the poison apple and we have seen the affects of that choice.  Let's decide to bite the big burrito of this new earth opportunity.  You may find the chile too hot or not hot enough, but whatever your taste, it is certain to be an experience worth tasting.

The new age is not something coming, but something that is here.  The old game is over.  How can I prove that?  I can't.  You can't prove feelings.  You just have to feel them.

  2. Hi Melissa! Thank you for sharing on this and for validating that the transition may not be smooth but is incredible if we can remain conscious throughout. Thats not always easy for me but your tips will help!

  3. Not easy for any of us. That is why we must do this together. Support each other in the process.
