In Case the Mayans Were Right

It's the morning of December 21st and the world is still here.  I've also heard from friends living from the other side of the world that though it's already the end of the 21st for them, they've so far not yet been annihilated either.

If the world were to end today, as some speculate based on the Mayan calendar that ends on 12/21/2012, then as far as I'm concerned, there's really just one last thing to blog about.  That is, to deal with the question of 'What else is there to say?'

Now this is tricky because there is a chance, a huge one in fact, that the world will continue beyond this day.  If so, then I still need to be careful about what I say since words always have consequences and I don't want to have to deal with painful consequences just as we all exhale on the 22nd.

So here's my 'safe enough to say' list and things I feel I need to get off my chest:

1.  If someone told me that it could only get worse from this point on, where we live in a world where children's backpacks are now equipped with a bullet-proof shield, and where teachers are going to be allowed to carry ammunition inside the classrooms, then by all means, please end the world now.  Frankly I'm more disturbed by such news than news of possible deadly solar flares or some giant meteor crashing on our planet.

2.  The thought of the end of days brought me to one clear realization.  I am a coward and a big one.  (Actually, I've always known that but more so now than before).  It became apparent to me that part of me actually prefers annihilation over continued survival for the simple reason of having an easy way out.  I think it's an easy way out for me to not work on things I have always been afraid to work on, to deny things  that I feel I cannot do much about.  The thought of a long future ahead actually scares me but knowing how life has a not-so-entertaining sense of humor, I think I might be given a long life ahead.  I guess there's no better time than now to try to start being an optimist and stop taking life oh so seriously.  It's the only way I can see surviving and keeping my sanity.

3.  To all my dearest loved ones from all over the globe, my treasured family members and closest friends, how I wish we could all be together when it's truly time for the world to end.  But it just doesn't work that way, does it?  So for now, while there is time and if the alternate belief is correct that this year's December 21st is really all about a shift in people's consciousness more than anything else, let's put our lives to good use and keep working towards investing in good karma.  Hopefully, in our next lives, we shall all be each other's 'lovers' again, but this time, geographically closer.  Or maybe teleportation would be possible and common by then, who knows?  

Finally, to all who continue to support Catharsis, THANK YOU.  The time you give to read my thoughts and share your comments are priceless to me.  I will do my best to write more and write better should life on Earth continue.  I give you all a BIG WARM HUG!

I'd like to give an update to my previous post It's All Santa's Fault.  I am happy to report that the toy finally arrived from Germany two days ago!  Yippee!!
