From The Guide:
"Now comes a third major phase on this path.
The transition from self-centered isolation to the state of union with all is the most essential step on the evolutionary path of an individual spirit entity."
The non-optional part is that you must make a choice, now. In other words, this is not a time where remaining in neutral is possible. The status quo must go. The optional part is what choice you make.
As has been written and talked about for a few thousand years, by soothsayers and metaphysically connected individuals, we collectively put in place a decision that in this age, at this time, and specifically centered around the calendar year, 2012, we would shift from 3D consciousness to 4D (You can read some FPL posts on 4D HERE).
The choices basically come down to this:
1. You may hunker down, hold on, and dig into 3D ideas and beliefs - like dualism and limitation - which means that your life will be what is referred to in the Book of Revelations as the "Tribulation." In other words, you will continue on in a struggling, battling, crisis-ridden way of life, in which obstacles, barriers and adversaries continue to plague your daily existence.
2. You may simply leave the planet, making your statement that you don't want to make the shift to 4D yet, but you don't want to suffer either. As FPL readers may recall, I posted the statistic a few weeks ago that more people died last year in the U.S. than in any year since we've been keeping the statistic. Revelations calls this the "Rapture." Yep. It's definitely one popular route right now, especially with younger souls.
3. You may do the self-work necessary to open your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual channels, embrace change and the unknown and move forward into 4D where you create your reality consciously in accordance with your highest excitement. This is the "Thousand Year Golden Age" described in Revelations.
I mean, this might seem like a no-brainer to you, but that most likely means you're on your way to doing whatever it takes to get on the 4D train. A good number of people right now, I can assure you, are going with options 1 or 2.
So, back to the election of 2012 - what does it mean? What are we collectively choosing?
Well, by re-electing one of the more mentally and emotionally balanced presidents we've had in decades in Barack Obama, it appears that we have decided to proceed forward without the most intense levels of a tribulation. In spite of those trying to paint him otherwise, Barack Obama is not an extreme figure politically, but rather a calm and confident "dog-whisperer"-type leader. He may not be particularly enlightened spiritually, not an "old soul," but rather, he is a "mature soul," and as such he can be a balance between the retrogressive and progressive forces in our country and in the world.
Regarding the Rapture, I sense that it will continue in force, if not through war and geopolitical conflict, then perhaps through what we think of as natural disasters and illness, etc. But rest assured, if leaving the planet is not your inner choice, you will be here and you will be fine... or not!
So, here we go, folks. There's now 6 weeks left to 2012, time to make your choice and get on the 4D train... or not. This particular moment "in time" represents the opening of a significant window in our continuum, a moment when there is a great deal of energy available to make the transition. But the 2012 train is heading out of the station, and it will not be as "easy" to catch The Wave soon. Can you eventually catch another train? Absolutely. Ultimately, every being must evolve and continue to raise their vibrational frequencies on their way to fully conscious oneness. Everyone "makes it," in other words. But how and when is always up to us. Again, as I've said before, there will eventually be another train of acceleration to get on at some point, and sooner or later, everyone is going to 4D and beyond. But if you're ready, willing and able, now would be a good time to leap!
