As we begin to approach the idea and physical event of December 12, 2012, I find a need to address the increasing anxieties, terrors, ecstatic blisses and stories of the alleged arrival of the next messiah that are exponentially growing out of this much-anticipated event.

All orientations to The Event, whether of fear and doom and gloom or silly notions proposed by New Agers that we are all going to transform into a new level of abundance and kindergarten levels of “happy happy joy joy” nonsense, are born out of an externally-oriented locus of control.  Some are “prepping” for the impending disaster and hiding out in underground bunkers.  Others are holding sharing circles meditating on and believing that our planet is going to morph into a purple star.  All attempts to put forth theories of what will happen are simply left-brained attempts to control the future, which none of us can do.  That is up to the Great Divine herself, whether embodied in her larger self as the ever-changing cosmos, or here in her smaller earthly manifestation within the creative, transformative wombs of all women.

Our work is to enter into the unknown.

The Unknown, that which cannot be named but which we know as true, lies at the heart of the study of the Tao.  It is our acceptance of the Unknown, the Inexplicable Wonder, that divides the children from the adults,  the kindergartners from the truly aware,  the boys and girls from the men and women of life.  In every case, the latter are the spiritual warriors/sages of our times and it would behoove us all to discern and look to the latter for guidance as we proceed forward in our adventures of the mysteries of life.

This is what I wish we all could do for our children and ourselves. It is called:  Remember Your Song http://www.earth-heal.com/index.php/news/news-for-an-earth-in-tranition/64-the-joy-of-being/494-song.html

I posted this on my other website:  sistertongue.wordpress.com and decided to re-post it here because it captures so much of what the Tao is all about.  There is, indeed, a song that sings within everyone of us.  Or a dance, which is what the Tai Chi, Chi Gung, Ba Gua are.  Whether song or dance, preferably a combination of the two, they are about rhythm and cadence and patterning – the yin, right-brain wisdoms of the human brain that have been so over-ridden by the fearful, yang qualities of the linear, concrete and hierarchical machinations of the left-brain.

Without the holy, sacred union of the two, humanity will never achieve it’s Higher Mind.
