The Sky is Falling! … The End is Nigh! … Beware of the Blob!

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
1 Peter 4:7 King James Edition

Doomsayers have been with us for a long time. A very long time.

But lately, things have been getting out of hand. It has become almost fashionable to believe that the best of that which is within us is now behind us.

The 24/7 news cycle has whipped the doom and gloomers into a frenetic frenzy. Media outlets shout louder and louder to be heard, each one wanting to be the first to announce the End of Days.

Let’s all take a breath
So far, every certain prediction of our wholesale demise has, thankfully, been incorrect. We’ll have our share of tears and anguish but we submit that love and laughter are lanterns for dark nights of the soul.

And we hope that, as has been the case after every dark night to date, the sun will rise again.

Alas, nothing lasts forever
One dark day the doomsayers will be right. And on that day, there will be no debate, no discussion, no diversion.

Until that time, we prefer to contemplate and negotiate destruction rather than annihilation. After all, annihilation is a dead-endgame without hint of hope.

But destruction is the essential prerequisite for creativity and new growth. Out of the fragments of destruction today come the raw materials and building blocks of a yet undiscovered future.

If we’re careful, smart and lucky, we can survive the long heralded and much dreaded coming apocalypse, just as we’ve survived them over the centuries. And we can come back even stronger.

That’s the Apocalypzian point of view.

Take heart. The end of over.

The Beginning is Near…
