Nostradamus & 2012
This is an interesting documentary about 2012: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVBes-j0lDI
I would like to comment on several points that the documentary does not cover, which I feel are very important points:
1. The image from Nostradamus shown on the far left, which is a drawing before his last drawing (see below) shows a necklace with an image of a full moon in the locket. Though this was not discussed during the video, Nostradamus predicted a coming of a world teacher, which the bible also predicted as the return of the Christ. Nostradamus identified this teacher with eight signs. According to John Hogue, the author of Nostradamus, who compared several teachers of the 20th century, only Osho fulfilled all the 8 signs. It is also interesting that Osho’s birth name is Rajneesh, which means the lord of the full moon, and, he initiated people into sannyas by giving them a mala with 108 beads and a locket with his photo.
2. The book of life being empty in the last drawing of Nostradamus clearly signifies the end of time as we know it and a beginning of a new era – the beginning of a new man and new woman with no past history. The new will have no church and no dogma to follow and no religious institutions. The new era will give each individual the responsibility for creating their own life and living in harmony with nature and all its creatures. The new man and woman will contribute their gifts and creativity to benefit all life on earth and not just their own needs and desires. 2012 is going to be the death of the old species of homo sapiens and the birth of the new species of homo spiritus!
3. The wheel in Nostradamus’ last painting is missing the spokes. The empty circle as in this Zen drawing represents consciousness. It is the emptiness within the universe and the emptiness within our being – as one. The Zen drawing on the far left shows the Milky Way – our spiral galaxy. When the Sun aligns with the Milky Way there will be an opportunity for mass transformation into enlightened consciousness. Those who have been preparing their body and psyche will be ready to experience it!
Osho says that Zen is the ultimate religion. I agree 1,000%! Zen has no gurus and no saviors – there is no one to follow but the Truth that resides within the empty core of your own being – this emptiness is the same emptiness that the Universe is made of. It is all there is!
Watch the video and contemplate over where you’d like to be when the sun gives you an opportunity to make a choice between the two roads that the Hopi drawings and predictions indicate. You have the power to make this choice!
Exercise: Look at Everything with Self-Awareness
Practice looking at everything while at the same time remaining aware of yourself as the observer. We can call this technique observation with self-awareness. Observation with self-awareness is another way to describe what I refer to as witnessing awareness. Observation with self-awareness is the key to breaking through the veils of illusion and disidentifying from the mind. Usually, you don’t have much difficulty observing what is outside of you and occasionally may observe what is inside, but you rarely observe yourself as the one who is observing. Observation with self-awareness helps you see what’s inside and outside of you at the same time and remain a witness to both.
Observation with self-awareness is like a torch that illuminates the unconscious darkness both inside and outside and transforms it into conscious light. To see the world with self-awareness means to stand apart from whatever you are observing instead of being identified with it. Observation with self-awareness helps you feel safe enough to venture into the darkness of the unconscious (personal, collective, and cosmic) and disidentify from it.
If you observe everything in the outside world and at the same time remain aware of yourself as the observer, you can never be lost in any situation. You will know that you are simply a detached observer of what is happening. With self-aware observation, you simply look at everything that comes to pass without judging, blaming, or identifying with anything. The self-aware observer has no bias towards what is “good” or “bad,” “right” or “wrong” – she simply observes all judgments as passing aspects of thought. Cultivating the ability to observe with self-awareness takes time and effort, but if you persevere in looking at everything with self-awareness, your consciousness of the world and yourself will gradually increase.
