I wrote the following blog originally in January of 2009 and thought it was apt to reproduce it word for word today…don’t worry, the world is not about to end and the Mayan’s have been much misunderstood. So if you are waiting for Aliens on a mountain in France I would get some more food and booze in…
I read a lot of things in preparation of writing this mortgage blog, and search for inspiration with regards to the difficult times we are going through. This time I think I have found the explanation – predicted thousands of years ago by the Mayan’s.
Very briefly, the Mayan’s were famed for their mystical mathematics and their incredible understanding of the universe. They calculated that there was an important astrological cycle called the Cosmic Day. One galactic day of 25,625 years is divided into five cycles of 5,125 years.
Anyway, the point is that the Mayans prophesied that the last of these cycles will be completed on December 21st, 2012, and we are coming to the last period before we turn into that new Cosmic Day. This is not another crazy end of the world thing, simply “a time of transition from one World Age into another.”
“At present, we are in what is known as “The Time of No Time”. It is an evolutionary period, short but intense, inside the grand cycles where great changes take place to thrust us into a new age of evolution as individuals and as mankind.”
This time is easy to spot. Greedy employers working employees to the bone. Everyone is in a hurry and materialism is key. Time is short and should be spent working and scheming and furthering yourself up the greasy pole of excess no matter what the cost to friends, family and colleagues.
This time, and the eventual financial collapse, was predicted thousands of years ago. And the more I read the more sense it makes.
“As individuals we will have to make decisions that will affect us all.”
It is a great time to reflect on where you are and what you want. Look around you. Look at your colleagues and your bosses. Who do you want in the trenches fighting for you? Can you contribute more to help?
Are you forgetting about the really important things in life? Are the difficulties now the excuse needed to do what you really wanted to do?
In the future people will look back at this time and wonder why everyone was so crazy, why we let things we care about down for the pursuit of money rather than the pursuit of happiness.
The ideas of the ‘80’s are an anachronism. People are not prepared to put up with it any more.
I am not saying that good honest effort and hard work are not needed or is not a good thing. On the contrary. Just not to the detriment of yourself or your employees.
Do not take abuse. Do not stand by if others are bullied. Stand up and question ideas. A good idea questioned is still a good idea and can become a great one. A bad idea not questioned could be disastrous.
At this time, the most important aspect of any company is simply their staff. Communicate and keep them happy. Without them there is nothing.
Last words to the Mayan ideas, (which by the way the principles of which were shared by most of the indigenous peoples of the world who understand our land):-
“If we continue on this negative path of hate, an eye for an eye, destruction of nature, of fear and egoism, we will enter straight into the time of destruction and chaos, and we will disappear as the dominant race of this planet.
If we become conscious and realize that we all form part of a great organism, and that we should respect one another and be grateful to our planet, then we will move directly into positive growth, our Golden Age.
Our planet, the Sun and the Galaxy are awaiting our decision. It is up to us what will happen in this time of change. Whether we go through a time of suffering and destruction or we find ourselves united in one positive consciousness moving closer to our next stage.”
Worth a read, with some interesting points to take away, whatever you may believe.
So there you go, roll on 2013 and the beginning of a Golden Age. It is up to us.
