The Tipping Point-

2012: The Tipping Point

By Rahasya Poe

Albert Einstein once said, “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” A large part of learning from yesterday is to acknowledge the ideas and actions that we had wrong and stop repeating them. This allows us to be more present and live life fully today without regrets. If we can do this, then we will have hope for tomorrow.

2012 Some people go so far as to say that the human race was a mistake, given all the destruction we have been responsible for. I think it’s far more correct to say that we have been mistaken; we’ve ignored the uncomfortable facts in favor of fiction and fantasies that have allowed us to slumber throughout human history. John Adams once said, “Facts are a stubborn thing.” Fiction, lies, and superstition rely heavily on support systems and a constant array of more lies and deceit. As uncomfortable as this may be, as we wake up we are being hurled into a world full of mystery and adventure that has been hidden from us for millennia. Religions are starting to see the need for a deeper understanding of the world we live in, science is starting to explore the depths of consciousness and spirit, war is showing its ugly face across the globe and bringing tyrants to the forefront of media exposure, and there is a strong movement toward reversing the corporate agendas that brought us GMO foods, the side effects from pharmaceutical drugs, and government collaboration with the banking industry—for example, the creation of the Federal Reserve.

So why, all of a sudden, have things changed? Because we the people are starting to wake up, that’s why. The Occupy movement says we are the 99 percent; that’s true in finance, but in actual numbers the proportion of those in control to us is a lot closer to 1 million to 1. This is our strength—the strength to create a better world by not slumbering in our needless extravagances of the past and wake up to the fact that we live on a planet with finite resources and have a financial system entirely dependent on infinite resources to survive. We have more than 4,000 alternative-energy patents that have been bought up and locked away; this one thing (free energy) would remove almost all the power from corrupted organizations and governments, and 90 percent of the reason we go to war would vanish overnight.

History has shown that any rigid and deeply entrenched organization, nation, species, or race that refuses to respond to the advances in knowledge or desires and needs of the world eventually ceases to exist. You would be hard pressed to find a current map with the Roman Empire on it, or a culture that still prayed to Zeus or Poseidon, or any one of the 99.99 percent of the now-extinct species that once thrived on planet Earth. Every day 137 species go extinct. Change is guaranteed; our participation in that change is not.

So let’s make 2012 the year we all gave birth to a new era of humanity, one that our ancestors will look back at as the year that we said enough and we turned it all around. Thanks for your continued support, which helps us bring you the very best of what’s on the horizon of a New Earth.
