Fatalism and Prophecy

The End of the World as We Know It - Daniel Wojcik

Fatalism, we are steeped in it. Also, bugger prophecy and prophets. It's always doom and gloom, war inciting, exclusive, unforgiving, vengeful, petty, nasty, hope destroying crap. Since when did any 'prophet', 'angel', 'ascended master', 'alien', 'vision of 'Mary', 'Jesus', or any other 'divine' personage, say something positive? How about a 'You know folks, it's going to be a great century! Also, your Aunt Beryl is going to win this year's cake contest at the local show.' 

Think on it. Prophecy is a harbinger of hopelessness. So next time someone tells you a message of doom and gloom, tell them to go and sit in the sunshine for a while, or to bugger off. Either way we don't need them, they just bring us down and leave us feeling less able to help, heal, or contribute in positive, meaningful ways, to the beautiful world we live in.
