I hope the world as we know it DOES end on 12/21/12. I hope the world that has war, greed, hatred, injustice, bigotry and oppression DIES a speedy, complete death and when we greet the Light of the New Day, we greet a world where PEOPLE matter, not wealth, not oil, not politics, but PEOPLE, their dreams, their hard work matter.
I hope the world gives birth to itself, a world where NO ONE CARES if you love someone of the same sex, where NO ONE is forced to hide their beliefs in subjugation to Christian privilege, where people tell the truth, no matter who it offends, where people refuse to allow lies to go unchallenged; a world where to steal from others is to kill oneself.
I hope we witness a world where poison, in all it's forms, is banished, where influence cannot be bought, sold, traded or stolen. I hope a new world comes forth where people stop killing each other and themselves; where no more children are born to less than ideal circumstances; where no one goes to sleep hungry, where no one wakes up in fear, where no one is abandoned, where no one is forgotten, where EVERYONE takes responsibility for themselves, their decisions, their deeds, their words, and their very thoughts.
I hope the very foundations of all that is Balance are wrought anew and all that is corrupt, all that is harmful, and all that is known as 'just the way it is' will be created anew and become the world that could be - if WE choose it, if WE dream it, WE dream it into reality.
So dream a new world into being. Go on. DO it. Dream into reality a world where what is wrong simply cannot survive, dream a world where no one is capable of lying to another, where no one is capable of taking from others. Dream, not peace, but possibility.
Dream HOPE back into the world. And maybe, just maybe, WE can dream the insanity that is what the world is today into nothing more than a bad dream, discarded, nonviable, and forever passed away.
Dream a new world into being. Set it in your mind, accept that it will be and dream it into reality. If EVERY person woke up on 12/22/12 recommitted to all these ideals...if EVERY person did that...it's possible. That world is possible. It starts with me. It starts with YOU. DREAM!!!!
