Many people are waking up to what all spiritual traditions teach – that we are more than our bodies and minds. Though many people have differing opinions about what will and won't happen in 2012—the end-date of the Mayan long-form calendar according to some scholars—I believe it will mark a time of significant spiritual change.
But rather than the apocalypse or radical shift that some are predicting, I believe that by 2012 hard times, inner longings, and changing spiritual dynamics will compel us to grow and seek life's deeper meanings. We'll dig deeper into our roots and shine our divine light brighter. To thrive in this time of change we can use the same simple yet potent ways to stay grounded and uplifted that seekers have been using for centuries. Here are tips for living and evolving as a spiritual being in the turbulent times leading up to 2012 and beyond.
