Much have been talked about the end of the world ...
During my almost 47 years of living on this planet, it has been talked about a number of times .. sometimes perpetrated by religious fanatics who is too eager to punish what they called sinners!
Now comes a new one ... 2012!
December 21, 2012!
There are sites that proclaimed that the Mayan and the Chinese I-Ching has predicted it ... even to the degree that a film is made in its name, hopefully to enjoy release before the blessed date!
There are counter arguments in http://www.greatdreams.com/2012.htm which said it is untrue.
Just for the next 5 minutes, indulge in a scenario that it is true.
WHAT WILL YOU DO?
Will you live the next 3 years plus in absolute enjoyment?
This is a Bucket 1 incident (please refer to my earlier blog entry on Of Death. Of Life...).. canNOT be changed.
Will you see life differently?
Will you love more and hate less?
Will you smile more and frown less?
To a small degree, July 1, 1997 for Hong Kong has similar feeling.
Although it is not the end of the world - maybe it was to some - it has a taste of terminal to it.
So on December 20, 2012 - what will your thoughts be?
Huddle your love ones in front of the TV?
Surrender your fate and faith to God?
Feel regretful about things you did not do?
Feel regretful of things that you have done?
What if there is a December 23, 2012 ... will this moment make us a better race and making the blue planet a more gracious society of love, care and life?
And regret that it needs such a reminder to wake us up again.
