December, the final month of the year; it arrives full of activities, warm-hearted wishes, and for some just the wish that it will all end so they may start a new year, with new perspectives!
Throughout the world people have been reading and thinking about the end of the world. Numerous predictions have been made, and along with the climate change and destruction from storms, people start to think hard about those predictions.
I read that in Russia the government itself is trying to calm down people and more than one pastor or priest is trying to do the same at their churches.
While some are increasing their awareness about their spirituality, others are taking advantage of the situation and are banking on fears to sell survival kits or to guide people to “safe places“. In fact Mexico readies to attract 52million tourists, both domestic and international to the south eastern portion of the country.
On the internet one can find alerts such as: 37 things you should start hoarding NOW. And I think where would you put them and how?
The more I think about it I reflect on how many times during a year I hear about the things that one must do or not do in order to live happily ever after. The problem is that keeping up with all this is so time consuming that there is no time to live.
I would need to spend most of my life earning money to cover the expenses to be safe and secure. That would not give me enough time to be with loved ones, enjoy their company, or have time to enjoy what God is offering me now.
I don’t know if the end is near. I don’t know if the thirty five year old woman who died locally knew that her end was near, or if maybe the eighty five year man who also passed away was certain that his day had arrived.
So, I don’t think I am ready to live under the rule of fear. Life is so full of uncertainties and surprises, some pleasant ones too, that I rather think of the wonderful things that are ahead. I may be highly influenced by the fact that pretty soon I am going to be a grandmother and the excitement and wonder of that fact fills all my thoughts and feelings.
I feel very blessed to have reasons to be alive and celebrate the life of others.
So forgive me if I don’t join the long and nervous faces that are expecting the new cosmic year on December 21, 2012. I salute all the women who are pregnant, all the students who want to succeed, and all the artists who celebrate life!
