Day 2

The Mayan Calendar Ended on the 28th October 2011

The world ended on the 28th October 2011.

Actually the world as we know it ended. The world will never be the same again. In the past month, Desmond Tutu said that the new regime is worse than Apartheid. And ANC NEC member Fikile Xasa called for an end to corruption.

World wide Photovoltaic production doubled. We are already at parity with City of Cape Town electricity under certain circumstances, ie the price of buying electricity is the same as producing it yourself!

Every Day is a Bonus Day.

We are now in Day 2. Love Day 2. Embrace it. Nurture it.

A Jewish "Niggun" or rhym: "Return to the land, return to the land, return to the land of your soul. Return to the land, return to the land, return to the land of your soul. Return to who you are, return to what you are, return to where you were born and reborn again." This is not about going back. It is about finding out who you are, why you are here, and getting onto the path that God has given you. A Buddhist Meditation (called Meta): "May I be filled with loving kindness. May I be well. May I be peaceful and at ease. My I be happy." Replace I with we. Replace I with "my family." Replace I with "our world." etc.

We are in Day 2. Do we need to call it week 1 or month 1 or year 1? I don't think so. Let's just call it Day 2. If you want to name it, perhaps call it StarDate 2.

Maybe I'm nuts. Maybe I'm eccentric. But Genesis 1, 28 informs all our actions on Day 2 and every day henceforth: We should "go forth and multiply, and replenish the earth." We cannot simply take and take, but must consider how we can put back. We are also told that the "sins of the fathers will be on the children to the forth generation" (Deuteronomy 5, 9). Four generations are about 100 years. This sentence means that we should consider 100 years time in all our decision making. The warnings are in our most ancient teachings. It's about time we heeded them.

With all my love and support for us all,
David

PS: It's a beautiful day.
