So this is it, 2012. This is the year when it will all end for us, or we will all get elevated to a higher level of consciousness. I’ve heard some interpret the Mayan calendar to say that this is when “He will come”. And of course, the Presidential election will save or end America as we know it.
So here’s to 2012 being the year of something I sorely lack in my own life – the Year of Certainty. It will once and for all become clear who and what is right in this world. God’s existence will be proven or disproven, especially if the year includes His arrival. Scientists will find the God particle and we will understand why the Universe is here. The election results, whichever way they go, will make America a great country again. Either the free market or socialism will give everyone prosperity, security, and a job. I will finally know what I want to do with my life.
But naturally, none of this will happen. Instead of coming to a swift, graceful end, our existence will continue to plod on. There will be nobody returning to us from the clouds, and nobody at our door. My heart will veer wildly from spirituality to cynicism, depending on how much pain it is in at a given moment. Those damned quarks and anti-quarks will keep doing their own thing. And I’ll keep working at an insurance company because I can’t come up with anything better to do.
Still, I wish everyone a happy doubtful and dithering 2012. To those of you who already have the miracle of Certainty and who know that you are always correct about everything, I envy you. For the rest of us, may the decorations on our tree be funky, our cups of chocolate mint tea steaming hot, our dogs and cats cuddly on our laps, and our blogs controversial. Happy Holidays!
