We´ve all heard several theories, ideas and events that directly relate to the year 2012. Some of them affirm the end of the world is near, others mention the Mayan culture, some say it´s an energetic movement and others simply take it as another year. So, what’s the real issue about 2012?
As a yoga lover, I asked Jivan Vinod, (Yoga teacher, Osho Meditation Leader, Osho Therapist and my guru) to explain me, in his point of view, about this precise moment, in which many of us maintain ourself in uncertainty. I found his thoughts of wisdom as a statement I had to share, as here it is:
“There is no doubt that something is about to end, you can feel it in the air and see it day by day with all the chaos that´s continuously happening; everything is breaking apart, burning, collapsing and falling.
If the world is breaking into pieces, it´s because it doesn’t work anymore the way it used to do, if it´s destroying itself, it´s because things need to change in order to give place to new ways, if it´s destroying itself, don’t try to put it together again or fix it, just let it finish falling apart to start soon with a new beginning.
It´s time to start over, to redefine our direction and what we really want, it´s time to understand that the old way of doing things is no longer working and that we have to create a new space that permits us to grow and, of course, to be whom we’ve always been, and whom we have come to be in this world.
It´s not about starting from zero, as life has made us wise and shown us many things, it´s about making the most of that wisdom in order to try again, create your goals and follow your highest thoughts and wishes. It´s time to create a new reality that´s giving you the opportunity to start over.
This changes will not come by itself, it´s not only about practicing a positive mind, this transformation requires materialization in each of your actions, thoughts and feelings. It´s very easy to repeat yourself you want to live in peace when you explode with anger with the finest action against your ego; it´s easy to hide behind depression and not face reality; it´s easy to live in a constant mental stress and not meditate; it´s very easy to want everything to change for good without trying to make an effort to notice this difference. Change comes from inside and it needs to be congruent with your thoughts and actions.
Without a doubt, this is the time to jump, we have the privilege to live this precise moment, which is full of energy, to help us start this new era we´ve all been waiting for, a new season in which humanity transforms “me” into “us”. ”
“We are the ones we have been waiting for” affirmed the Hopi people. As so it is.
So, just as Jivan affirmed, “If the world is to end, let it find us dancing; loving each others, meditating and, of course, fulfilled, awakened, and full with inner peace”.
