Apocalypse Coming

I’m not sure I understand all the hype surrounding the 2012 apocalypse.  I get the prophecies, astrological implications, historical references, etc.  Those are everywhere. I understand the convergence of world powers taking place, the alteration of laws to fit within a global system of order, and the willingness to use war against citizens to control the populace.  This has been happening for years.

What I don’t understand is the fear.  Everywhere I look, I see so much fear.  What is it we’re supposed to be afraid of?  Death?  We’re always on the verge of death, it’s the one thing life guarantees.  None of this is permanent.  Placing a date on the experience only brings the matter into a focal point of awareness.  If you’re fearful of death it’s this point you’re missing.  You aren’t really living, this is just survival.

Death is a part of life’s equation, without this parameter the equation cannot exist.  If you’re fearful of death then you’ve become fearful of life, unable to appreciate what it means to be alive.

The end comes, that’a what it does, it has been since the day it began.
Celebrate it while you’re here, worry not what the future brings.
