December 21, 2012 is it the End of Time?

It’s the End of the World…and I Feel Fine

December 21, 2012 is it the End of Time?“It’s the end of the world as we know it… it’s the end of the world as we know it… it’s the end of the world as we know it. And I feel fine.”

I don’t think REM was thinking about December 21, 2012 when they wrote that song… but last New Year’s Eve I had a conversation with my sister-in-law Mona that might be weighing on some people… worrying some people… at least in the back of our mind… as the calendar is almost about to tick off the tenth month of 2012. Thinking about the END TIMES is heavy. No doubt. It isn’t the type of conversation that I usually have, but as we sat there in her living room in our New Year’s Eve party clothes… about to go out for a night on the town… we started talking about predictions, intuition, coincidence vs. things happening for a reason.

Am I worried about a Mayan prediction? Mona “feels” like something is going to happen? Good/Bad/ Different… no doubt change is going to happen in some form – it always does. She “feels” things though… like me, she is looking for and aware of signs. It’s just that some signs are not always easy to interpret. She told me a story about how she was in New York City the weekend before 9-11 and knew that something terrible was going to happen… to the point that no one could console her… to the point that she was physically ill. Of course she didn’t know what it was. Would she have even believed it if she knew… or would she have talked herself out of believing? Would she have rationalized her fears away? I’m pretty sure that no one else would have believed her if she was standing and shouting out on the street corner to beware. People would have passed her right by… thought she was crazy at best. Kind of like we do those preachers that prophecy the End Times. We don’t want to hear about that… but guess what? Even if the DoomsDay predictors are wrong, we are all mortal. The END is coming… at least as we know it. How do you feel about that? I don’t want it to happen. I have babies I want to see grow and grand babies I want to hold one day… but as far as my soul? I feel fine.
