View Full Version : Preparing for 2012
07-19-2007, 08:11 AM
after working in the medical field for 18 years, i decided to return to school to pursue a degree in education. my primary desire is to work with children or young adults with disabilities. i currently have a year left of school and should be completing my degree in 2009. the problem i have is the persistent thought of ascension and 2012 that i think about and wonder at times if there is a point to pursuing a degree, changing careers, and pursuing a different direction in my life with the unexpected events that may or may not unfold. i continue to wonder if it will matter; however, i also feel that i should not stop following my heart in making any decisions regarding my life since the future is so uncertain and ascension may or may not happen in my lifetime, moreover, i may not be ready for ascension. i know there are various arguments but truth-be-told we do not know nor will we ever know until the moment arrives. how does 2012 and ascension affect your life and do you find that the choices you make are different now verses not knowing about 2012 and ascension? i truly believe that i was shown davidís work and this forum for a reason but at times i canít shake the feelings of uncertainty about the direction iím taking in my life and if it will matter. the problem of living in duality, i suppose, is i fluctuate between feeling good about my choices to uncertainty. there is also the mixed feelings of ascension and the feelings of whether i am ready or will ascend verses remaining in 3d. as a light worker, i guess it should not matter. anybody else having mixed feelings about all this?
this is an interesting query and has (and still is) been discussed in the 2012 "section". i have a "strange" take on this that i'd like to share...
if and when the ascension occurs, it will be for a reason. i do not particularly desire to leave this life - in fact, after accepting oneness and seeing the beauty that exists presently while "living in the now", it ain't so bad. :d
on the other hand, if the reason for ascension of positive souls is to serve the greater good, then i will gladly abandon or surrender all hopes and dreams of this 3d life so i can be of service to others as a 4d entity. i don't think this is necessarily my choice, although i do bear the responsibility that my choices and actions will affect whether i, as an individual, will ascend. in other words, i can definitely make it so i won't, but can't necessarily guarantee that i will.
which leads me back to the idea of surrender. if the "wisdom" that makes the "choices" during ascension feels i am worthy and would be effective at serving, then i will gladly "surrender". if not, then that's ok too. i can only do my best...

if you are 50% service to others you will ascend. i dont think staying will be much of an option due to the condition of the planet. so if there is an acension moment around 2012 im quite sure you will ascend.
next. if you have the guts to make such a huge life altering change such as changing jobs than by all means go for it. if it feels right and it makes you happy then its the right thing to do.
david himself has responded to this question on multiple occasions in this forum over the years and the ascension process is not supposed to stop you from living your current life to the fullest.
that being said, i also consuder switching jobs, but quite honestly dont have the gumption to do it. i still fear uncertainty and change to an extent and am not much of a risk taker.
plus i really dont know what job out there i would actually enjoy, that i could actually realistically obtain.

about 17 years ago lot of people in my life died over a period of about 2-3 years. since then i have often asked myself the question when making a decision in regard to a new direction "if i knew i was going to die next week would i do this?" when i use death as an ally it really sorts out my priorities and reminds me that the journey is just as important as the final goal.
we have recently been reminded in another thread that the purpose of an entity in [third] density is to:
* experience all things desired,
* to then analyze,
* accept, and
* understand these experiences,
* distilling the love and wisdom found within them
i should imagine this will be true right up to ascension and beyond

i think about and wonder at times if there is a point to pursuing a degree, changing careers, and pursuing a different direction in my life with the unexpected events that may or may not unfold. i continue to wonder if it will matter
i couldn't let this go by the wayside cynlor:
of course it all matters! every little thing you do in your life is experience for you that you have chosen for yourself. who knows how many children you will help by this small career change? well, you will never find out if you don't follow thru.
unexpected events that may or may not unfold
oh, how many times have we listened to our parents or grandparents tell us "if only i had...." (fill in the blank).
we must live our lives without that fear and pursue whatever we keep telling ourself to do, because if we don't, we will never have any barometer with which to judge, will we? you go cynlor! as bob riedel says, you rock! chris
...how does 2012 and ascension affect your life and do you find that the choices you make are different now verses not knowing about 2012 and ascension?...
thanks for sharing an interesting question.
from a metaphoric standpoint, the turningpoint seems upon a timescale that is difficult to relate to - in thousands of years, and so the observable effect of such a turningpoint may take hundreds or thousands of years to distinguish, not days or years or even decades. from my perspective, there's definitely the possiblity that the 2012 turningpoint could be a merciful one.
this doesn't mean the chance of disaster isn't there, every day seems some chance of disaster and that type of preparation can always be useful. so i carry a first aid kit in my car and have one in my house. for a while i had some extra water - maybe i should get some more to be on the safe side, (five gallons should be enough, don't you think?) maybe i should buy some sort of canned soup to go along with it, like a case of chicken noodle. then if some disaster never comes, then i have something to donate for the food drives at the end of the year - i can give it to charity instead of letting it spoil from sitting too long.

another thought, cynlor, is that our 3d experience in general, might be looked at as preparation for 4d. you may well find that the skills and talents that you acquire here may translate and extrapolate quite directly into your 4d work.
it might be possible that you will be able to pick up certain threads in your life, although in an augmented fashion, after the ascension. even those who must repeat another round of 3d might be in a position to be of special service to others, by virtue of their previous experience, so to speak.
skills and aptitudes we garner here may metamorphize in ways we can't imagine now, and put us in position for great and sacred responsibilities down the road.
i plan to continue to develop my career, my relationships, personal talents and so on, with a gut feeling that none of it will be in vain.
although i believe the harvest to be a sudden, discontinuous event, i don't think it necessarily follows that the talents that we have now, and the things we have strived for, are not applicable in any forseeable future existance. our lives, with all their pitfalls and peaks, are evolving inexorably towards being of greater and greater potential for service to others. and that's what it's all about!
in this time of accelerating potential for just about everything, i feel it's all the more important to carry on with our lives, and meet every opportunity for learning and sharing 'service to others' skills, while we still have the time to realize these things within our selves.
all the best, mark

i can remember the story of the followers of a charismatic evangelist in the mid 1800's. he had calculated the arrival date for jesus' second coming and all his followers sold their possessions, dressed in white robes and waited atop a hill at the appointed time. needless to say, jesus didn't come and those followers and a splinter group became the jehova's witnesses and the seventh-day adventists.
don't get too caught up in the dates of things. in truth, it doesn't matter how ascension manifests itself. what is important is to continue to walk according to the promptings of that part of spirit that would seek to be of service. in doing these things, you have in essence began to ascend already. let go of the need for outcomes or expectation of future events and learn to live in the necessity of this moment. in doing so, you allow for the miracle and the revelation of your part in its unfoldment. when you realize these things you will find that your already there.

thank you for the great responses and new thoughts to consider. although i was not considering abandoning my dreams, these are things that i consider and think about in my life. in sharing my truth, it helps knowing that others are facing the same challenges as i face. i resonate with law of one material more than any other spiritual work and ascension of humanity and the changing of our planet is definately a concept that weighs heavily in my daily life.....which is a good thing.
don't get too caught up in the dates of things. in truth, it doesn't matter how ascension manifests itself.
dihlon.....i agree, dates shouldn't matter, however, it's definately things i think about. since i am not much of a follower, i have no plans to sell all my belongings and head for the mountains quite yet.
thank you everyone
i think my new mantra for life will be:
keep on, keeping on
