What do we have to cheer about? The end is near! Not the end of the world itself, but the end of the world as we know it.
What does that mean? Is it 'Armageddon,' as described in the Bible? Hell fire and brimstone, devastation, the Apocalypse? No, far from it. Think about it. What is the truth about the world as it has always been? What is the truth about the 'Human condition' that has tolerated the persistence of hunger, war, disease, poverty and greed for the past twelve milennia? The truth is, if those things ended tomorrow no one would miss them, except for maybe those who have always profited enormously from them.
'Never!' You say, 'War, Hunger, Poverty, Disease, Greed, Avarice, Lust have always been with us and will always be!' Even Jesus may have waxed a bit cynical when he stated, "For you will always have the poor with you, but you have me but for a short while longer!" [John 12:8; Matthew 26:11] Well then, if that's true for what did he come here? (We'll get back to that question in a bit.) As for the rest of you naysayers, my guess is that you must count yourselves among the aforementioned 'profiteers.' Hey, I'm just saying! Be that as it may, the overwhelming evidence is that, if you are one of those unfortunate many, your days are truly numbered. That number could even be as little as 666! Surprisingly, we know this because of one immutable, incontrovertible, irrevocable, scientific Law of the Universe. "ALL THINGS SEEK TO ACHIEVE A STATE OF
We believe that that moment is rapidly approaching. It is literally, 'infinitely probable' within the immediately foreseeable future, if history is a remotely reliable indicator. And regardless of whom you may be or whoever may rewrite the book on past events, the facts are the facts.
FACT: The 'human saga' is estimated by anthropologists to be some 12,000 years old. By 'old' they mean according to dead men's bones and the carbon that dated them. By 'old' we mean that it's been the same old story for all of that time. Regardless of your particular affiliations, religious or otherwise, creationist or evolutionary, it has included all of those previously stated, extremely negative global influences from then until now.
FACT: Up until very recently (we're talking the last half century or so), we have been mostly incapable of handling any of them. But, that is no longer the case. Today, we can cure any disease, feed all of the people on the planet, live in Peace and Harmony, care for our environment, our parents, our children, provide opportunity for everyone to Prosper, handle virtually any adverse circumstance and come out the better for it. All of these things are absolutely true, right this very minute!
FACT: All we need is unconditional Love and the collective Will to choose the greatest version of the grandest vision that we can conceive of that includes that 'reality' in which to Live, as opposed to the one in which we currently exist. But above all, we must embody the Spirit to do what our Savior, Jesus Christ did. Namely, we must 'go about the world and do Good!'
If there is anything that is worthy of All of us giving our thanks this year, it is certainly that we can achieve that 'global equilibrium' for the first time ever. We can choose that on this very day. And, if in the next 12,000 years we find that Love, Peace, Prosperity, Generosity, Compassion and Kindness don't work, we can always go back to what we had yesterday, before we balanced, 'The Human Equation!'
