Why the World Doesn't End

I heard Michael Meade this morning on Bioneers, it was so refreshingly inspiring!

quote: Why the World Doesn't End

Despite the increasing intensity of natural disasters and the growing threat of cultural catastrophes, the real issue is not the literal end of the world. In mythic terms, ends and beginnings are essentially connected and one keeps leading to the other as the eternal drama and ongoing mystery of life continues to unfold and the world keeps renewing itself. In the bible story the fires of apocalypse eventually lead to a time of renewal. As with most systems of timekeeping, the ancient Mayan calendar comes to an end and time turns over and it begins to count the days again.

The point is not to become nihilistic or cynical, not to be overly fearful or believe in one or another end-time scenario. The point is to recognize the archetypal ground of extremes, the surprising and unpredictable territory where things both end and begin again. To be alive at this time is to enter a "liminal" state, a betwixt and between condition that occurs when an era comes to an end, when many things are ending and everything seems about to fall apart. Yet, it is in the middle of the darkest times when things secretly begin again..

Many other truly wonderful stories are there as well. Thanks Michael!
