bettina Dance, Movement, Meditation, Life in Transition

Much has been written and said about this special date: 21-12-2012. It is regarded as the end-date of a 5125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Both the Hopis and Mayans recognize that we are approaching the end of a World Age. It is a time of transition from one World Age into another. It is said that the world we are ending is the one that is dominated by materialism and ego consciousness, therefore it may be that the world to follow will be founded on different values that honor the spirit of the interdependence of all of life. Right now is the time for deep reflection, attunement with a greater heart-space and for envisioning the life we want to create together. Remember to pause, to sit quietly in the darkness, to listen deeply…

Sweet Darkness
When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.
When your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you.
Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize its own.
There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.
The dark will be your womb
tonight.
The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.
You must learn one thing:
the world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.
Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn
anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.
