Lately there has been a lot of talk about the upcoming winter solstice that will happen on the 21.12.12, & also about tomorrows date: 12.12.12 - & there are many different theories and beliefs about it. According to the Mayan Calender, the "Mayan Age" ends on the 21.12.12, & some people have talked about this day as "the end of the world"- others call it "the end of an era" & "the beginning of something new"- & that is how it is seen from a Yogic Point of view, with the difference that we believe that the new age called Aquarian Age started last year on the 11.11.11.
Regardless of the date; there IS a shift and transformation from The Piscean age to the Aquarian age going on, and it affects everyone.
The Piscean age was the time of technology, fast pace, and ruled by the ego (what’s in it for me) The Aquarian age that we have now entered; is the time of truth and awareness (we are spiritual beings having a human experience), a time to heal and help not only ourselves, but our brothers and sisters and the planet earth. The time has come to wake up, to go inside and find the truth, to let go of our attachments in this material world.
Our lives are changing and we both want and need to change” to survive”. Yogi Bhajan (the man who brought Kundalini Yoga to the West from India) said that there will not be enough spiritual teachers in the Aquarian age – since there will be a great search for “spirituality” with humans looking for guidance. A time of confusion, worries and challenges for many is expected, and the technology of Kundalini Yoga is a helping hand on our journey through life and our search for the truth. It is a tool that can help us become more conscious, more aware of thoughts and feelings so we can control them, instead of them controlling us. It can give us the strength needed to go inside and find the beauty and divine within; our purpose in life, so we can act and speak from the heart to become more kind, more compassionate – to become one.
Whether you are a fan of Yoga or not - take some time tomorrow to celebrate the simple, yet transformative understanding that we are all interconnected in the living system called Planet Earth, by either joining an event locally or globally, or create you own - or simply just take a few minutes & think about what YOU can do to make this world a better place ♥ ♥
