But it is a mixed blessing.
On the one hand we have not been subjected to a whole panoply of predicted disasters, from pole reversals to supervolcanoes. However, on the other hand we didn't ascend to a higher level of consciousness, witness the start of a new Golden Age, experience the return of our benevolent space brothers, gain admittance to the Galactic Federation, or achieve global peace and prosperity.
In short, nothing much out of the ordinary, either good or bad, appeared to happen, which is what Baba, the Korean Zen Master, predicted when I met with him at his temple in 2008.
To those of us who were active around the issues of Y2K it is deja vu all over again. Luckily, for me at least, this time around I didn't buy into the doom-and-gloom scenario and I didn't go overboard on disaster prep.
There are those sources that are saying that some changes did occur on December 21. They contend that certain subtle energies from outer space impacted the earth and that in the future we will look back on this period as a turning point but there is no way of judging the validity of such sentiments so I will just take a wait-and-see attitude on that.
All of this business of the Mayan prophecy is now behind us but what I am left with is an unabated interest in the various related topics that are mentioned in the masthead above......... such things as remote viewing, First Contact, altered states, and after life communications.
These are definitely subjects that I would like to address in the future, but for the time being I need to take a break.
Therefore, I am going to put the blog on hiatus, turn my attention to a number of long-neglected projects, and return to the blog............ now newly renamed The Post-2012 Post........ at some later date.
In closing, I would just like to say, aren't we lucky that......
THE BARTENDER WAS RIGHT!
