2012, Are We Looking for a Savior



It seems humanity is always looking for a savior, someone to save them from themselves. This concept has gone on forever, from the beginning of time.

Every religion and culture has always looked to the heavens for someone of superior knowledge to lead the way to salvation. Many Christians look to Jesus and other religions and beliefs look to his counterpart as well, many look for some extraterrestrial being to land in a spaceship and whisk them away to a distant peaceful planet to live out the rest of the days of their existence.

At this particular period in time the Mayans are getting all of the press. Because the Mayan long calendar completes its cycle on December 21st, 2012, people again are looking for some miracle to occur.

The Mayas, as well as the Incas and Aztecs were looking for Quetzalcoatl, a white fair skinned  warrior to come and save them. Unfortunately for the Meso-Americans when  Cortez arrived, whom they had mistaken for Quetzalcoatl, he raped, massacred, robbed, and killed most of them.

In today’s world many people are looking for someone in government to “do it all” for them and create an environment where people will have to do very little and have the government provide all the trappings of a successful life without providing any effort.

People around the world and especially in America, “the shining city on the hill,” have forgotten where they came from. They have strayed from the teachings of the ancients. Just as the ancient Mayas and Australian Aborigines strayed and have lost their culture, so has the western world strayed from it’s roots.

There is an old saying that if one doesn’t believe in God, they believe in government, this is so true today, we see it everywhere.People keep putting their trust in elected officials who have the morals and ethics of an alley cat. The only value these officials have is the value of the  vote they can get because government has taken something  from one group that has worked very hard to earn it, and given it to another group who has done nothing but whine, thus making the receiver dependent
on the government and unable to survive without their assistance.

I have come to believe there is no savior, there are great teachers that lead the way, and when we listen to their words and advice, we will achieve salvation and a good happy life, but it is up to us to follow their wisdom. Didn’t Jesus say,”These things that I do, you can do also?” He also said,”The kingdom of God is within.”

We must learn, it is their wisdom and not them personally.This in no way lessens their importance or value, they were all great teachers, but no one can do it for you, you have to do it yourself.

Will there be a second coming? I believe the second coming is a personal thing, we each experience it individually, if a savior suddenly appeared, how would it change things, you would still have to get up and go to work tomorrow, and many would still doubt, the world’s population can’t even agree on whole the savior would be.

The second coming comes from within, God is within, we each carry a spark of God within us. Realizing we are a part of God and that we have direct access to his knowledge without outside assistance is paramount to our salvation and advancement as an enlightened being.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race, what happens after death, the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.

Available in both PAPERBACK and EBOOK formats.
