The end of the world, second coming, Revelations, Mayan prophecy, occupy Wall Street, natural disasters, Kali yuga, Nostradamus, Padmasabava, The degenerate age, and a yarn along.
Today I have been thinking a little about all the heavy speculation, concern and fear out there. Especially since, in the last weeks concerned friends have been flooding facebook with warnings, messages and possibility’s of the cosmic kind by the minute.
Another catalyst for my thinking, was a friend who sells veggie seedlings at the market, mentioning how this year, there has been a remarkable increase in people looking to grow there own food. I have also noticed the funky weather, and many other possible indicators of change afoot.
I live in an area where quite preparations for possible dramatic change, have been taking place since the 60s. And so, I have started to wonder if, I have been a bit laid back about it all! If the warning signals are valid! And if maybe I should quietly panic and prepare too.
I have often put the hype down to the human ego, which I believe can have a tendency, to feel so important, as to expect that after thousands of years of relative stability, the end of the world, age or stage would happen in their own life time.
My Precious Dzogchen teacher has mentioned a little on this topic, and it was something along the lines of -worry when its time to worry, and he didn’t seem worried at all.
But I’m a mother and my body constantly pumps to a rhythm of survive, thrive, prepare, be aware and besides, its all a bit exciting.
So I’m joining Ginny, over at Small things in the yarn along (my first one) and I apologise if my ramblings are a bit heavy, but in regards to what I was going on about up there, I thought I would pull out this hippy classic which is wonderful, hopeful, and helpful. - Survival into the 21 Century, a planetary healers manual. And as for knitting well this is the sweetest dress from Debbie Bliss’s essential Knits for kids book, In unconformingly hand spun wool, in both thick and thin.
