2012 is almost here, the year of enlightenment for all... i've got 4 hours, and 28 minutes, here or there, now and then, say or not, count on me for another year, to help awakening all

i'm listening to this, my new years alone. this song reminds me of the monks, priests and wonderful nuns of the sangha. despite the christian lyrics, my buddhist teachers dress my wounds.

hope you like it as i do.

Wishing you all the best for 2012 (or 2555 if you are in Thailand, lol).

Apparently the world is going to blow up this year or it's going to be a start of some golden age, according to the followers of the modern interpretation of the Mayan Calender. All I can conclude that I can't live my life by auspicious dates, but try to live in the moment, be adaptable and mindful of the ups and downs of life, and try not to take things too personally.

Wishing all beings at ease

Curiously enough Dharma Dave I have friends who are advocates of the whole golden age/imminent destruction point of view of new age philopsophies - for me it seems that the whole cycle will carry on as it always has done - the poor will stay poor and the rich will get richer at the hands of the poor, Samsara will cycle on as it always done and imminent apocalyptic events will make very little difference in the scheme of things, that and the fact that there was a serious climatological event at the end of the last Mayan long count I saw on a discovery documentary that makes peple think theres going to be some big change at the end of the next cycle. Anyway I'm musing whimsical so I'll let you get on with your discussion.

I've made a 2012 new year stick staff, it's about 2 feet long, carved out of aspen branch, and has 12 carved additions to it for each month of the year, and I wood burn (with a pyrography tool) each number for what day it is, when the day arrives I put either a silver or gold thumb tack by the number day it is, and when it gets past 12-21-2012 I'm throwin' it in the lake out back, so it can float til it sinks, in 2013 or something, it might just sink quick because of all the tack weight

I just went in back and ahhhh, smells sooo gooood back there, am dehydrating apple slices.

Back to New Year Stick talk! Oh, it has a short limb on it that acts as a hook holder, so I can balance it on any flat edge, and it sways in a point motion, sooo gracefully.
