“And I would like to say that according to the Mayan Calendar the 21st of December marks the end of the time and the beginning of no-time. It is the end of the Macha & the beginning of the Pacha. It is the end of selfishness & the beginning of brotherhood. It is the end of individualism & the beginning of collectivism… the 21st of December this year.
The scientists know very well that this marks the end of an anthropocentric life and the beginning of a biocentric life. It is the end of hatred and the beginning of love. The end of lies and the beginning of truth. It is the end of sadness and the beginning of joy. It is the end of division and the beginning of unity.”
― Evo Morales, President of Bolivia to the UN General Assembly, on Dec 21, 2012
First, I want to congratulate you on making it here… to the other side of the “end of the world!” All this talk of the end of the world and all I can think of is that REM song—“it’s the end of the world…and I feel fine….” But maybe the world did end—the world as we knew it. Just as the cells in our bodies are constantly in a state of evolution, dying and rebirthing to create a completely different cellular makeup every 7 years, so must the world change and everything about how we interact with that world.
Perhaps now is the time when unhealthy competition has died and we are awakened to heal the planet and heal ourselves from this last century of ego, individualism and straight-up drama! What part of you are you ready to “let die”? What part of you no longer can serve this new world? What part of you are you ready to let go of? Instead of fighting this end, this change, just let it go and in its place something new will birth.
Maybe 12/21/2012 marks the end of smoking for you. That part of you done and you are done with that part of you. Or perhaps 12/21/2012 marks the end of you choosing to not live your life to its fullest. Whether today marked the end of the world (your world) as we knew it or whether the end of December marks the end of another year, now is the time to let something go that no longer serves you and allow something new to take its place.
I challenge you this week to sit down and list out what in your life—your choices, your behaviors, your mental patterns—no longer serve you and no longer serve a world based on health, truth, biocentrism and love. Whether this is the dawning of a new world or it’s just time for you to care enough about yourself to change, it doesn’t matter. What a truly incredible world it could be if we all were willing to be more fully ourselves and to recognize our power, our beauty and our capacity for love.
The first step is to figure out, what no longer serves you and commit to relinquishing that. You must believe in yourself to care enough about yourself to commit to creating a new you. What is it going to take to make 2013 your most powerful, magnetic, energetic and healthiest year yet? Take the steps to do it. If there was ever momentum to create true change in you, it is this year when so many are looking to see a new world.
