Swami Predicts Heart Times Ahead
Every year at this time, I am asked to make predictions, and each time I politely refuse because I don't want to jeopardize my nonprophet status. But this year is different. With 2012 just one quantum leap year away, we humans might finally be ready for a quantum leap of our own. The message is coming in loud and clear. Time to shift or get off the pot.
In order to upshift our karma into surpassing gear, however, we must shift our awareness downward from the static of the head to the ecstatic of the heart. If we are to have an awakening instead of a wake, I predict heart times ahead.
Yes, everyone is equipped to attune to universal wisdom because everyone has been given a heart. And yet, the heart seems to be the last gift we open. The most underdeveloped resource on the planet is the treasure inside our own treasured chest! Given all the craziness in the world, maybe if we invested in expanding our hearts, we'd have less need to shrink our heads.
As the saying goes, money can't buy happiness, although it can buy anti-depressants. But if you are seeking more out of life than not being depressed, the key to happiness is to grow your own. Every one of us should be asking, "What good am I?" What good can I add to the greater goodness? Maybe if we had greater goodness, we'd need fewer goods. As human beings, our biggest asset is love, so now is the time to get up off our big fat assets, and practice supply-side spirituality. Because we aren't here to earn God's love, we are here to spend it. We are here to re-grow the Garden from the grassroots up, and have a heaven of a time doing it!
