Another day older, another day wiser! Pinch yourself because you have clearly made it beyond the wildly-branded doomsday (of December 21, 2012)! Over the past years, groups of people from around the globe were anticipating one or two catastrophic events to unfold: The collision of Earth with Planet Nibiru – the infamous “Planet X“; and the end of the world as interpreted by some translations of the ancient Mayan Calendar. Truth be told, there are many counterproductive new age movements that cater to those seeking some form of spiritual and/or emotional understanding or personal healing.
It is easy to dupe individuals into becoming cult followers through campaigns of fear and paranoia. It has been a common tactic used throughout the ages to control the masses by some “leaders”. Heaven’s Gate founder, Marshall Applewhite used such fear tactics to attract potential followers to his cult group. As you may be aware, self-prophesying can lead to lethal consequences – as was the case in 1997 when he and his band of soul seekers performed mass suicides. The same holds true during the time of Haley’s Comet (in 1910). People worked themselves up mostly because of the fear from an implied calamitous Earth strike.
In the book, The Copycat Effect, the author Loren Coleman writes, “When Halley’s Comet made its closest approach to the earth in 1910, several people killed themselves out of contagious fear and panic.” In hindsight, did the comet itself invoke mass suicides? No. In truth, self-fulfilling prophecy has created and continues to create the most dire circumstances, and sometimes even deadly outcomes.
Even author Mark Twain was snared in his own self-fulfilling prophecy. In 1909, Twain wrote: “It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.’ ” Twain died exactly one day after the comet’s appearance in 1910.
Tom Peters, prolific writer said, “Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders.” While you are thinking about this profound statement, I want you to question yourself on the belief systems that have molded you and those which you have established for yourself (in your life). If you are like most people, you choose to put yourself into one of two roles: A) Follower or B) Leader. There is no in-between. Either you lead, follow or get out of the way. Which role do you choose for your life path?
Since you are a spiritual being, your life force dictates the power that you have and that which you create for yourself. Remember, you have the freewill to choose and build your own destiny. Mother Teresa is noted as saying, “I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.” As much positive that Mother Teresa contributed to society, she, too had her moments of weakness. We all do. However, when you choose to use your good judgment and common sense, you find that bogeyman tactics will begin to fall to the wayside. Stop putting an emphasis on self-fulfilling prophecy and the paranoia of the world, and start putting more focus on all that you are capable of creating and contributing to your life, your environment and the community in which you live. By all means, create a productive self-fulfilling prophecy. Like, “I am going to succeed at fill in the blank,” or “I am going to be healthy, prosperous and happy.”
Will catastrophic events still happen? Count on it. Throughout the centuries, this old Earth and civilization has endured a barrage of happenings including great floods, famines, wars, hurricanes, hailstorms, tornados, mass killings, earthquakes, volcanoes, and yes, even comet strikes. It is the new millennium, and we are still here. Breathe. Tomorrow is another day. How you choose to live today, the belief systems in which you invest your energies, and the choices you make to create your own destiny are ultimately what will dictate your personal outcome in life.
