A Facebook friend, Eric Steven Rankin (author of "The Aquarians") wrote:
On the winter solstice a couple of days ago (when the northern hemisphere of Earth began to experience ever more light with each passing day), comet Lovejoy appeared on the horizon and was called the "most incredible sight I've ever seen" by a crew member aboard the International Space Station. This is the comet that was supposed to have been burned up by it's close pass by the sun, but instead survived to create a visual wonder at Christmas/Solstice time. And it's name is Love-Joy? What are the odds of that? Maybe we're getting a message!

What if we are getting a message! I got excited about this idea. What if Comet LoveJoy was foretelling a new age, like the star the Magi followed to find The Christ. This time though, there is not one Christ, but many.
What if we are now living in the period of time that people of the future call the "The Shift," the "Time of Transformation" or the "Age of Enlightenment"? You can't deny that the consciousness of humanity is changing rapidly. I see it changing for the good.
If we believe it, we have a great responsibility. Each one of us is participating in creating our future in our own way and it is up to us to expand our boundaries and do our best for the good of all. This means to be conscious of being conscious. To honor and respect all the many aspects of Life: the earth and all it is made of, the plants that grow upon it, the insects, the birds and the many forms of Life that pollinate it, and all animals - including ourselves - that feed upon it.
It means to truly pay attention to our relationships with each other, whether we are interacting with our friends and families, strangers in the market place, or walking by a homeless person on the street. It means realizing at a deep soul level we are all One.
Brian Tracy writes "The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good."
We're all spiritual adventurers, exploring the greater good - following a messenger called "Love-Joy" and creating a world that works for everyone! Let's make it a Great One!
SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT
As I awaken to a new day, a new year, I do so with gratitude for all that I was, all I am, and all I will be. Though it seems like I am always changing, the Truth of me is unchangeable, as the Truth of me is God.
I declare this year to be a year of amazing experiences - a deepening in consciousness, and expansion of mind. I declare this is a year in which even ordinary, everyday experiences are felt with a spiritual awareness. I declare this year to be one of health, wealth, and creativity. I declare this year to be one of Love and Joy.
I celebrate the newness of 2012. I am happy to be here to experience another year. With a heart filled with gratitude, I release these words into the Law of Mind, knowing they are so, and so it is.
