n Chinese culture, every year has an animal mascot. It’s the “year of the monkey,” for example, or the year of the rooster. 2012 is the year of consciousness (or conscious awakening, in a sense).

Does this mean we’re going to abandon the mundane daily news of planet earth and float off into la-la land where we start chanting mantras and worshipping self-proclaimed enlightened gurus? Hardly. In fact, in 2012 I want to talk with you about what I call grounded consciousness. Or “holistic consciousness.”

And why?

 

Because it is the lack of consciousness that’s behind every corporate crime, government conspiracy, political corruption, Big Pharma scheme and environmental crime that takes place on our planet. Those who lack consciousness engage in “you versus me” crimes of selfishness — stealing, exploiting, destroying, deceiving — yet such behaviors come from a place of ignorance about consciousness and the universe around us.
