What If They Are Right? - Looking Up Newsletter

July 16th, 2012
Looking Up Newsletter

Hello everyone,

I know that I just ran this article somewhere around New Year's Day, but the sentiment has swept over me again, so I am re-sharing it with you.

Again, I am reminding myself to contemplate on how lucky we are to live in modern times with indoor plumbing, store-bought shoes, and over-the-counter medicines. I am remembering again, how blessed we are to have blue skies, indoor bubble baths, and fluffy pillows.

Again, I remind myself, to cease the day, to live as if this is your last year on earth even if you have no logical reason to think that it is.

take care,
Skye Thomas

Quote of the Week:

Astrology is a language. If you understand this language, the sky speaks to you. - Dane Rudhyar

At the moment, I am looking into astrology, which seems indispensable for a proper understanding of mythology. There are strange and wondrous things in these lands of darkness. Please, don't worry about my wanderings in these infinitudes. I shall return laden with rich booty for our knowledge of the human psyche. - Carl Jung

Physicist Albert Einstein said: "Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it."

Feature Article of the Week:

What If They Are Right?

It is difficult to NOT stumble across End Times predictions and prophesies telling us that 2012 is the end of the world, as we know it. When I look into the astrological aspects, the ugliest time for us to deal with already passed back in 2009 and 2010... and it created the economic, political, cultural, religious, and societal upheavals we have been going through over the last couple of years. There is nothing bigger or uglier coming in 2012 if you look at it from an astrologer's perspective. Did the mess that peaked in 2010 create the negativity that would cause us to experience an End Times in 2012? Now that we are on the downhill side of things and we are slowly recovering, would we now do something to cause our own demise? After so many of the evil dictators and warlords are dead or at least dethroned can they cause it to happen? And what of Nibiru, that giant mystery planet that is supposed to come swooping in and create all kinds of problems for our entire solar system as he makes his long awaited swivel around our sun? Shouldn't we be able to see him by now? Is it true that Google, NASA, and the others are deliberately blocking information so that we cannot find Nibiru on the sky maps? What of the aliens that will either save us or enslave us depending on who you ask? Why would they pick 2012's winter solstice as their special date to arrive? If you spend much time at all reviewing the various 2012 doomsday plots and storylines, you come away with a lot more questions than answers. But for argument's sake, what if they are right? What if, in some way, somehow, for some odd reason... this really is our last year on this planet... with these beautiful blue skies, lush greenery, sparkling water, and irritable but endearing inhabitants? What if this really is our last year together, then what?

Would it really do any good to collect supplies and brush up on our survivalist training? If meteors, earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, and such are going to blow the sky into a mess of ash and debris so thick that most of us will die... is it worth trying to live through that? If the nuclear facilities inevitably spill their toxins, do we want to still be here with the poisoned water and air? Without medicines, eyeglasses, comfortable shoes, bug repellant, and toothpaste, are we really going to feel lucky to have survived the initial calamities? Where are all of the seeds to plant new crops? Haven't they all been hidden away while we were busy watching television? Who still knows how to make medicines from the plants and herbs? I have heard it said that most women in America under 30-years-old don't even know how to cook. Maybe we would be better off dying in the first horrific wave rather than to have to trudge along creating a Second Coming of the Caveman.

And won't we feel stupid if we spend the next year gathering supplies, hoarding medicines, and preparing our hideouts for the inevitable end that seems to never come? How many doomsday predictions have we seen come and go, and yet nothing really happens? Calendars end, they cycle around, one ends and the next one begins, isn't that the nature of calendars? What if December 22nd 2012 comes and it looks just like any other day? I know a man who spent years using up all of the dandruff shampoo, multivitamins, and paper towels that he and his wife stockpiled before the big Y2K disaster that did not manifest.

And then there is this question of the aliens. If there are evil satanic aliens waiting to turn us into slaves or that are coming to annihilate us, then we probably don't stand much of a chance against them anyway given their technological advantages. So again, what are we going to do to prepare, re-watch Will Smith in "Independence Day"? Maybe we could play some video games and pretend that we are capable of battling them? I am not a very good slave. I have no intentions of being made to do hard manual labor. That's not really my thing. If evil aliens come to enslave us, I will intentionally anger one of them, so that they will kill me right away. And if there are benevolent aliens watching over us that will rescue us, then we do not really need to prepare ourselves, right? After all, they probably have plenty of shampoo and clean socks ready and waiting.

So, what is left for me to do? For any of us to do? You may or may not want to stock up on some supplies. You may or may not want to study up on some survivalist training. Me, I will go to the beach and embrace the colors of the sunset. I will breathe deeply of that coastal breeze. I will ride roller coasters. I will dance at Disneyland. I will embarrass my children with glee as I refuse to conform to their generation's standards of good parental conduct. I will love this planet and do my best to forgive its inhabitants for their selfish and destructive ways. I will relish in every season and holiday as if it really is the last time that I will see the first flowers of spring, the last time I will watch fourth of July fireworks, my final summer, and the last time I will spend Thanksgiving with my loved ones at a table with store-bought food. I will go to the grocery store, the pharmacy, the gas station, and every other errand that I run with a prayer of gratitude in my heart that I am not foraging for edible roots, firewood, and something to use for toilet paper. I will be happy to buy yet another pair of shoes for my ever growing son and will be glad that he is not barefoot because I do not know how to make homemade shoes from tree bark and vines. And I might just spend a little more time gazing through his new telescope looking out at the heavens and wondering... are we alone and are there other planets as lovely as this one and will we ever get to see them during my lifetime?

I will live 2012 as if it is my last year on this beautiful planet even though I have not seen anything so far that proves to me that it is indeed the end of the world as we know it.
