There May Be Trouble Ahead…

September 24th, 2012

Here is a guest post by Druid Luke Eastwood. Luke is the author of the excellent The Druid Primer.

This is the first blog I have ever written and how nice to be invited to write one as a guest! As we approach the end of the year I have become aware of an increased tension on many levels – the world economy, middle-eastern politics, the worst grain harvest in decades and not least of all – a metaphysical angst surrounding the much anticipated final days of 2012. Is it me, or is there a growing tension in the air that you can almost taste?
As spiritual tensions rise this seems to be mirrored materially on a macro level around the globe and also a micro level of personal interactions, certainly amongst many of the people I am aware of.  It’s so easy to take the lower road energetically when under stress, threat or provocation on whatever level, however it is when we are most sorely tested that we need to take the higher path and reach inside ourselves to find the wellspring of spiritual strength that enables us to do the right thing and retain our integrity.
As pressures increase it tends to bring out either the best or the worst in people and in this case one can only hope that we can all tap into what is best in our own selves and hopefully inspire the same in others. This is of course easier said than done, but for the sake of all that live on this planet I believe we should try to meet the challenges ahead with hope, compassion, insight and above all, without fear.

  1. The same thing happened in 2000 and happens whenever a bunch of people think the world is going to end. It is followed by intense disappointment when it doesn’t and the realisation that they are not important enough to be around when Jesus or Krishna or whatever nasty deity wants to pop by and murder bits of itself for not agreeing with it.

  2. This was the Dalai Lama’s status on facebook this morning.
    “Hardship, in forcing us to exercise greater patience and forbearance in daily life, actually makes us stronger and more robust. From the daily experience of hardship comes a greater capacity to accept difficulties without losing our sense of inner calm. Of course, I do not advocate seeking out hardship as a way of life, but merely wish to suggest that, if you relate to it constructively, it can bring greater inner strength and fortitude.”

  3. Well, this seems to be so true… the essence is to be in LOVE and not Fear.
    A friend told me recently when I was sharing about my personal very major changes right now…… ‘this is what it takes to wake up,’ If that is the case, and we have all been asking to wake up, we have to accept what we have asked for as the gift it is.
    When the Mayan Elder came to our village a few years back and was giving a talk, someone asked him how it prepare for 2012. He was quiet and looked in the eyes of everyone individually and then said…….’Love God’.
    I keep remembering that, and it gives me strength.

  4. I have been following a number of web sites over the last 3 years or so, some of which talk about 2012 being a turning point. But there are many, many sites that refer to the Rebirthing of the Earth, Ascension, or The Shift. These sites point to the many signs that something massive is coming on a planetary level, and in the realm of human affairs, the signs are everywhere, according to these sites. What they all seem to have in common is the notion that there will be world-wide sociopolitical and economic upheaval, and that those who aren’t ready spiritually for this will be subject to all sorts of emotional and behavioral reactions. These sites say that the answer to it all is love and compassion for each other. The changes, while difficult, are necessary for our spiritual development as a species, not to mention necessary for our survival as a species. This all seems to dovetail nicely with the blog posted here. And even if you don’t believe any of this, it is good to remember that we should “meet the challenges ahead with hope, compassion, insight and above all, without fear.” The universe is unfolding as it should, so why fear it?
