Reading Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age" by Gregg Braden.
It gives an overview of how time cycles and repeats itself throughout the history of our world Bringing together some incredible world prophecies from the Vedic traditions, to the Mayan Calendar to the Hopi Indians - Gregg Braden helps me realise that the current world situation is by far bigger and more profound that most of what is being discussed in the media today.
The threat of the dreaded hyped up swine flu, the environmental changes, the weather patterns, the global economic fear crisis - all can be tracked and in some way predicted by viewing the cycles and the patterns in the long term history of our planet.
Check his book out.. it will give you a sense of the profound nature of what we are currently going through - and are likely to experience in the very near future.. the buidup to December 21st, 2012 is already here. We are here because we chose to be here in this incredible time - let us not miss it for want of opening our eyes and seeing what is really important in our lives right now.
You might also like to check out the Global Coherence Project - a project aimed at creating a world experience of centering our energy in our heart - perhaps this can create the shift we need to bring us through this incredible time in our history to the other side of the drama - to begin a new time on our planet.
