I am curious to know how many OV members truly believe that the New Earth or the New Age will arrive by the end of 2012? And if you believe this, how has your belief changed your life? Has anyone decided that it's pointless to save money for retirement since we won't need money after the shift? Has anyone changed their educational or professional goals because you realize those particular skills will no longer be required? Has your belief changed any of your relationships with significant others who do not share your thoughts?
As for me, I am writing a book that I think would help some people to prepare for the shift, and I'm feeling a lot of pressure to keep it brief and get it finished before it's too late! I'm tempted to take out our IRA money to buy the trike my husband is pining for, but that seems too radical, especially since his main fear is that we won't have enough to live on when he retires. He has mixed feelings about my decision to write instead of working at a "real" job that would bring in a regular income. I say that I wasn't able to find such a job because it was not my soul's purpose to do that kind of work. He has said that people work to earn money even if it means doing something they hate. But he also believes in my writing and recently said that it MIGHT be part of his purpose to support my work. Since I've been feeding him my spiritual thought bit by bit over the 34 years we've been together, he is gradually growing to understand them better.
Is anyone else willing to share their decisions and/or experiences resulting from their knowledge of the coming shift?
