2012: Year of “The One Power” — Dragon Power

The global spiritual awakening of our species finally found its outlet and external expression in 2011 last year (The video below was featured in a related 2011 blog. Click the 2011 link to read it.).  This is what the end of the Mayan calendar long count signified.

This final development in the unfoldment of spiritual consciousness (or the evolution of human consciousness, depending on your perspective) has brought about, and continues to bring about, the collapse and disintegration of the now obsolete superstructures of our collective human experience.  I refer to the paradigms, beliefs, constructs, systems and relationships that arose from the human state of consciousness and were built on the awareness of a deeply entrenched and erroneous material sense of reality.  That state of consciousness has withered away.  The paradigm has changed — radically and abruptly — almost in the “twinkling of an eye” if you consider the rapid developments and changes of the past several years in the context of human civilization’s timeline or in terms of geologic time, even cosmic time.

I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.  Behold! I tell you a mystery.  We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.  For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.  For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.  (1 Corinthians 15:50-53, ESV; emphasis supplied.)

Thus, we have experienced not only successive and unusual earth changes in climate, weather, geology, etc., whether gradually or suddenly, but also upheavals, disruptions, shock waves, and/or growing discontent in other areas of the human experience such as the economy, politics, morality, religion, society, family, marriage, and so on.  Life is causing us to reexamine and reassess our values and belief systems, in the course of compelling us to evolve spiritually and to adopt a new methodology for living life — no longer a human method based on duality and the sense of separation from God (the truth and experience of Oneness), but a spiritual one based on the mystical Oneness underlying all things, all manifest forms, all creation, all that there is.  

Yes, it SEEMS as if the world that sustained mankind for ages and lifetimes is crumbling around us now, but what we are perceiving by our bodily senses is only how the change is impacting the old human way of life — the “old wine” and the “old wineskin” of scripture. We are experiencing the old human state of consciousness imploding on itself, which is the fate of all things illusory vis-a-vis spiritual truth.  What we do not yet experience and perceive with clarity at the moment are the new wine and the new wineskin of the emerging new consciousness with its corresponding new mindset.  

He also told them a parable: “No one tears a piece from a new garment and puts it on an old garment. If he does, he will tear the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old.  And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed.  But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.”  (Yeshua, The Gospel According to Luke 5:36-38, ESV; emphasis supplied.)

Even our mind, itself, is being renewed and transformed into the so-called Christ-Mind of truth or the Buddha-Mind of enlightenment, as it expands exponentially with the new awareness of spiritual beingness which the mind is adjusting to and reflecting in all dimensions of its becoming.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  (Philippians 2:5-8, KJV; emphasis supplied.)

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  (Romans 12:2, KJV; emphasis supplied.)

There are clear signs of the new consciousness that is emerging in our experience.  This spiritual unfoldment, which comes as a sudden explosion and infinite expansion of consciousness, is enabling our human species to experience multidimensionality and to behold a much broader vision than ever before of the universe (perhaps even a multiverse) as “home” to us.  By discovering other star systems like ours, in a very brief span of time we have gone beyond the concept of a “planetary home” to a “galactic neighborhood,” reaching farther and farther out into the frontier vastness of an expanding universe!

Through science, the new consciousness is bringing us to the very edge of the cosmos even as we try to fathom and comprehend its beginning, and we are being forced to accept another paradigm of reality far different from what we perceive with the bodily senses only — one that makes us begin to realize the illusory nature of the material world.

We are finally beginning to understand what the great spiritual pioneers and way-showers — the mystics — have been trying to teach us at every age for countless years.  The new state of consciousness is allowing us to finally discover our true Selfhood beyond the finite humanity in which our true spiritual nature was hidden, and to discover the new reality of a “new heaven and earth.”  From this subtle spiritual awakening, the energy of the new consciousness is purposely illuminating and transforming our humanity into what is referred to and personified in various spiritual cultures as the Messiah, the Prophet, the Christ, Krishna, the Buddha.

In the year 2012, we shall begin to experience the fulfillment and outer manifestation of the new spiritual consciousness.  But, as in the earlier phases of evolution wherein adaptation was the key, we must adapt to the spiritual transformation by flowing with (not resisting) its process, if we are to thrive and prosper beyond surviving.  Those who will fail to adapt will go the way of other life form expressions which failed to adapt to the demands of evolution — extinction.  

Let us then find ways and means to adapt to the next and final step in our “evolving” consciousness — to express and live the new spiritual consciousness we are embodying. Let us rediscover the ways of Oneness, of brotherhood and of community that had strongly characterized early Christianity’s first two hundred years, before the rise of the human intentions and the human institutions that corroded and eroded the purity of the Christ teachings.  It will come easily for those who will flow with the current of transformation, because of their openness and receptivity to the truth of spiritual being.

In the orient, 2012 is the Year of the Dragon, the water dragon specifically.  Unlike the west (Europe in particular) which often regards the dragon as evil, the east has always revered the dragon as a good omen and as the mythical embodiment of the unseen energies of divine or cosmic power.  It was adopted as the symbol for the Emperor of China.  As the video above suggests, 2012 is truly a year of power — Spirit power and spiritual empowerment (not human empowerment) — indeed the year of dragon power.

Here is an informative video on the Year of the Dragon.

About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of "contemporary mysticism" under the style of "Contemplative Pathways." His spiritual work is backed by a profound understanding of mystical teachings and the mystical life, that is rooted in fifty (50) years of personal study, practice and spiritual unfoldment (inner realization and spiritual experience).  In the course of his spiritual journey, he has received the gifts of mystical discernment and spiritual transmission. Marc has been conducting classes and meetings on contemporary mysticism and meditation at the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years, usually in a classroom, lecture, seminar, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting. He has facilitated study groups and workshops for centering/contemplative meditation practice meetings since the 1980s. Marc's teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in students through the process of spiritual transmission and mystical transformation.  He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles in their daily lives. His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure, authentic mysticism.  Marc's approach to the subject of contemporary mysticism is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, transreligious, definitively unitive, and unequivocally nondualistic. Within the context of the great shift in consciousness presently occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work focuses on individual and collective spiritual instruction and transformation. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for spiritual transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring, spiritual direction, and spiritual healing work. Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination. His brand of mysticism is the only true contemporary mysticism born of 21st century illumination and spirituality.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!

    At one time consciousness was viewed with skepticism by many scientists, but in recent years it has become a significant topic of research in psychology and neuroscience . The primary focus is on understanding what it means biologically and psychologically for information to be present in consciousness—that is, on determining the neural and psychological correlates of consciousness. The majority of experimental studies assess consciousness by asking human subjects for a verbal report of their experiences (e.g., “tell me if you notice anything when I do this”). Issues of interest include phenomena such as subliminal perception , blindsight , denial of impairment , and altered states of consciousness produced by psychoactive drugs or spiritual or meditative techniques.

    This post was remarkable. Beautifully executed. I especially love this part:

    “In the year 2012, we shall begin to experience the fulfillment and outer manifestation of the new spiritual consciousness. But, as in the earlier phases of evolution wherein adaptation was the key, we must adapt to the spiritual transformation by flowing with (not resisting) its process, if we are to thrive and prosper beyond surviving.”

    That definitely resonates with me as well. Thank you for sharing this gem with all of us. Peace and Love. And Happy New Year today. The Water Dragon has flowed in! Peace and Love! 🙂
