2012 was no picnic for some people and as the year ends (thankfully not the Mayan prediction end), many of you are waving happily at a fresh start. Not only is 2013 upon us with our new resolutions, goals and dreams, but we also are entering the Age of Aquarius.
There is some disagreement as to the official start of the Age of Aquarius as some believe it began nine months ago on February 14, 2012. Others believe it will not begin until 2,150. However, there are many prominent facts pointing to December 22, 2012 as the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, which will carry on for the next 2,152 or more years.
The significance of the Age of Aquarius is more than the ‘60s-Hippy-Love-Generation’, and the Fifth Dimension’s anthem “Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In”, which was also the hit song in the musical Hair.
The lyrics have some profound ideals and speak of what is to occur per astronomers and astrologers around the world….
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind’s true liberation
The Age of Aquarius is about the human race moving from living in the conscious mind to being present and acting from the heart. It’s what yoga teaches; letting go of the ego or “me” consciousness to a higher evolved “we” state as a collective oneness. We will become more likened with the experiences life will bring us rather than the possessions of our worldly material things.
So what does this have to do with business? More and more of us are using our talents and efforts for the greater good. Not only for the world and people, but also for the betterment of our business. As we carry on through this time, we’ll see more team projects, more team efforts and a greater willingness to accept participation from many avenues and people versus working in our silos.
It is a breathe of fresh air and as the song says, “Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in.” There are no coincidences in our personal and business lives. With open arms we bring our team together and look forward to a great year and a great new age.
