On Not Saving the World (and 2012)

It’s not about saving the world. Duh. It’s about being in the world.

According to my psychic friend, the 2012 thing is like this: we are all being pulled like a magnet toward awakening and being more conscious/happy. IE letting go of negative energy states and being pulled into higher ones. It’s happening to us, all of us, the same.

Each planet is alive and ours is too, and we’re part of it, we’re part of its evolutionary matrix, if you will.

So the world is “saving” itself, it’s already happening.

Which is a relief for those of us with Savior complexes. (But, the world! What a mess! The sky is falling! What to do, what to do! I have a gift, shouldn’t I be using it to save the world? But, but, I feel such ambivalence and responsibility and aaaaack!)

If you feel like you came here for a reason, you did, but it’s more to experience this shift rather than create the shift. The shift is what it is. You can participate in it. In fact, you already are. You’re already being pulled or pushed to express your true nature, to enjoy your experience here, to have fun and be lighter. You’re gradually lightening up and waking up. It’s already happening. So you can embrace it and live it and relax. OK?

And your gift? We all have them. Just use it, and enjoy it. Using a gift is as much for you as for anyone else. You live your best life when you are using your gift. Other people benefit too. But they’d be OK even if you did something else. Really.

Note to self: Stop being codependent with the whole dang world.


  1. I LOVE how you say this! – I see how it reflects things I’ve said, but I might steal some of your phrasing.

  2. Hey, hi! I just added a link to you in the post. =)

    I love this…and all your new posts…and the new direction on the blog. Like Sarah said, you just have a way with words. I find great comfort in the idea that the world is already saving itself.

    I ran across this quote on pinterest the other day and it really stuck with me. Sort of in line with what you’re saying…

    “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” – Howard Thurman
