Archive for December, 2011

What a year!! As 2011 draws to a close, (two hours and fifteen minutes left to go for those of us living in GMT plus two),its been quite remarkable how one after another , dictators have been shown the door, some by stepping down and others , those who clung to power relentlessly, by being violently deposed. The thick skin, the certainty that they were right and everyone else wrong (‘my people love me,they love me all’),was met with a fury born of years of suffering and oppression.The human spirit will not be silenced forever.

Not only on a macro scale has this occurred, but I have noticed on a microlevel too. Look around your life. See how former ‘dictators’, ‘my way or the highway’ type of people, have been silenced, sidelined, hurt, extinguished. I believe its a global phenomenon and it is reflective of the dawning of a new consciousness, a new awareness.

This paves the way for a new world , starting in 2012. But the change needed to happen on an internal level first, before it could be reflected on an external level. This is the proof that our consciousness has evolved. Not allowing yourself to be dictated to. Not allowing others to determine what you can and cannot do.Desiring autonomy and self determination. Not allowing religion or state to limit you.Not dictating to or limiting the freedom of expression of others. Being personally responsible. Being the best version of yourself that you can be.And that means being fully self referring and always understanding the big picture.Having a win-win attitude.

Anywhere where you are not honouring YOU, you will suffer. Anywhere where you are not honouring others, YOU will suffer. The whole of life is to propel us to that understanding and if we don’t get it, life will show us.Because what we don’t realize is that when you limit or hurt someone else, you are limiting and hurting yourself. Our separateness is an illusion. That’s the understanding that we are headed towards and what a much better place the world will be when we ‘get it’, not as an intellectual concept, but as a knowing!

So here is to an amazing 2012, with lots of love, light and laughter… the luscious fruits of freedom, responsibility, authenticity and the right to choose.
