Happy New Year! (?)

Well………it hasn’t been a boring year has it? Plenty of excitement and change, almost too much for us to really take in. Maybe the upcoming year will provide a peaceful respite, full of harmony and goodwill throughout the world. But I doubt it!

We have a loooong way to go before we can hope for any peace. The changes that the worldtrack that we are on currently will demand much of the world, and of us. And even that busy worldtrack will still not provide all of the changes needed to propel us onto a new one that has a more satisfactory, let alone desirable one. Iow, BIG changes are coming. Some of them quiet, some of them likely quite loud. Uusally, the pattern of the coming year is fairly obvious. It certainly has ben under Bush. Each year brought more brutality, more death, and more justification and rationalization as to why those were actually good things, not crimes against humanity.

We are undoubtedly entering a new era, and the possibilities and problems are lined up as far as the eye can see. And those are just the ones we CAN see. The only thing I can confidently predict is that this next year will be completely unpredictable. Well, I can predict one thing. Those invested in the status quo will try to defend it, and try to pretend that we are not in the middle of huge, worldtrack changing upheaval and a new paradigm. As usual, their comforting denial of reality will only exacerbate every problem as The Powers That Be do ONLY what they think will keep them in power, what is to their own advantage and the rest of the world be damned.

On the other side of the ledger will be growing unrest as folks who are not rich and who don’t have power are deeply and permanently changed by the changing times. Worldwide, the middle classes and lower classes will increasingly discover that noblesse oblige is a mostly dead concept. They will begin to learn That they can only count on each other, not their leaders and not the Ruling Class.

That change, and the sure to be ‘exciting’ and ‘interesting’ events that will occur over the next solar cycle, as the current paradigm erodes and a new one evolves, will shape a new worldtrack, a new consensus reality.

And as always, we will have individual control over only three things. Our individual attention, intention, and perhaps most important for these times, our own individual reactions and responses.

Something is coming, a new world is just starting to be born, with the return of the sun. No one can say what shape it will take, so I have only one piece of advice…..Hold onto your hats!

Thanks for this last year and all of your work in creating The Greatest Good for All Concerned. Have a happy and blessed new year, free of fear of the change to come, (why fear what you can’t control?) and ready to respond, always, in ways that will bring more love into the world and raise the vibration of this poor little planet!

    Bob Fertik’s the “question” to Barack Obama at change.gov has been moved from 8th to 1st place this morning, along with the huge increase in new petition signatures!

    “Will you appoint a Special Prosecutor – ideally Patrick Fitzgerald – to independently investigate the gravest crimes of the Bush Administration, including torture and warrantless wiretapping?”

    Let us all leave the “me” out of “I” in the new year and strive to listen to others rendition of their feelings with and eye towards understanding how important the understanding of others feelings actually are.

  5. …Happy New Year to all!


  7. it’s hard to say 2008 was a good year but, for me, it was. and george w. bush is on his way out. November 4, 2008. that really was the start of my new year!

    and have to say, living with an adorable dutchman in a foreign country, learning a new language, bike-freakin’-riding, adjusting to the tempo of four teenagers who like me BUT who don’t like me . . . has been an incredible and wonderful and tough experience. i am lucky. and maybe a little bit blessed.

    happy new year all . . .

  8. to all my Docudharman friends….

    It has got to get better, 2008 was a year where the weak were killed and eaten (a favorite Detroiter expression) and I am pleased as punch to flush it.

    Get your game faces on, 2009 will be an even tougher fight.

    From 9500 to 13001 in a day and a half. 😉
