It is January 2009. And something is happening. Everyone feels it, knows it and is experiencing it in some way. With each passing day someone comes up with a theory for these phenomena we are experiencing. Some of these explanations have the seed of truth, some may be true and many others are fanciful imagination (witch ultimately means they are true as well, but more on that later).

Is it the Mayan 2012 curse, a New World Order/Illuminati Conspiracy, The End of Times, the birth of a New Age or something else? What exactly is going on? And what do we do about IT? Whatever IT is, IT cannot be ignored or denied. Try as we might to live in our own little bubble of reality, we cannot escape the fact that the fabric of the universe seems to be unraveling before our very eyes.

We cannot reduce this to financial or environmental influences. Many are experiencing actual transformation in their physical bodies. In the form of pain, illness or a general dis-ease that is impossible to localize or explain though standard medical practice.

As a result of whatever IT is, people are flocking to spiritual teachings, digging old beliefs out of the dustbin of history, polishing them up and presenting them as new. Many others are using this collective experience as “proof” that their particular perspective has been correct all along. A minority are working to assist humanity though this transformation.

I have been silently observing this for my entire life. I was prepared since birth for this time and have been searching for the answers to guide others when the time was right.

And try as I might to deny or resist this purpose the universe continues to urge me forward so here I am. Joining the multitude of voices to call the masses to awaken. What I have to contribute is my own small part, and I offer this as a gift, a hope and a prayer that you may find some truth in what I have to share with you.

There are many pitfalls and dead ends that have been set for you on this journey to discover your true self. And unlike the false prophets and carnival barkers who would sell you your Enlightment for top dollar and answer all your questions, I will tell you the truth.

It may not be what you want to hear, and you may choose to disagree and discard what I say. All you have is your own perspective, but before you make any decisions I offer this caveat-

What is it that you see when you look at the world?

And how do you decide what is true?

If you are like most others you compare new information to the old models you have in your experience of what is true. Meaning that nothing new is ever allowed to enter your awareness. Your mind is a closed book and your life has been already written. You regurgitate the teachings, stories and ideas that you were given during the formation of your personality. Do you understand that?

If there is a possibility that what I say above is true that the obvious question arises-

Who decided what we were taught?
And why?

So you join the many that passed before you as you approach the road that diverges in the wood. You stand before Morpheus as he asks you to choose between the red or blue pill. For the first time in remembered history, all humanity is receiving what Joseph Cambell aptly named the “Call to Adventure”. The “Call” is the feeling that draws you to this moment; the “Adventure” is ancient and simple- Gnothi Seauton-Know Thyself.

And what will you decide?

Will you take the “Blue Pill” and accept the consensus reality as presented. Look at any ideas that conflict with your own as “lies” or “blasphemy”.

Or will you take the “Red Pill” and fall from the Eden of your ignorance? Ignorance is a form of bliss. Easier to not know, to live in denial and hope the monsters will stay in the closet where they belong. Better to not open the closet lest you find a monster staring you in the face.

Or is it?

It is your decision. No one can solve your problems nor release you from your responsibilities. No one has your answers. You are here so you can play your part on this stage we call earth. 

Take these words to guide you:

"We have not even to risk the adventure alone; for the heroes of all time have gone before us; the labyrinth is thoroughly known; we have only to follow the thread of the hero path. And where we had thought find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”-Joseph Cambell
