We’re one year away from Dec. 21, 2012, the date that the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar allegedly marked as the end of an era that would reset the date to zero and signal the end of humanity.
There have been many crazy people this year who’ve claimed the apocalypse was near. Remember when Christian radio host Harold Camping predicted that the world would end, twice? First he said it would happen May 21st, and then on October 21st and we’re still here.
There have also been similar warnings about the world coming to an end from various cultures, including Native Americans, the Chinese, Egyptians and even the Irish.
The Mayans predicted a final event that included a solar shift, a Venus transit and violent earthquakes.
Their Long Count calendar begins in 3,114 B.C., marking time in roughly 394-year periods known as Baktuns. Thirteen was a sacred number for the Mayans, they wrote that the 13th Baktun ends on Dec. 21, 2012.
Many archeologists argue that the 2012 reference on a 1,300-year-old stone tablet only marks the end of a cycle in the Mayan calendar.
“The world will not end. It is an era,” said Yeanet Zaldo, a tourism spokeswoman for the Caribbean state of Quintana Roo, home to Cancun. “For us, it is a message of hope.”
Remember Y2K? People stocked up on water, food, and medical supplies in case the world ended when it went from the year 1999 to 2000. Absolutely nothing happened.
I still laugh about that.
Who knows what’s really going to happen?
Maybe it’s not the end of humanity. It might be some sort of mass consciousness shift that moves humanity in a certain direction. In other words, ending the world as we know it.
But than again, there are the people who believe planet Nibiru’s orbit has it headed for an encounter with the Earth. An encounter that would destroy everything.
Personally, I don’t think planet Nibiru will destroy all of humanity. I believe that the world is experiencing a consciousness shift and has been for some time. Evolution being the driving force behind that shift. Human are done psychically evolving but are still in the process of fully developing our consciousness.
We unlock doors within our consciousness that would be ignored and kept locked by an ignorant person. By attaining knowledge and wisdom we raise our conscious awareness of everything that exists. Slowly we’ll begin to see passed the illusions projected onto reality by our modern society (power, authority, money, drugs, politics). Through knowledge and wisdom we attain understanding. Understanding is a doorway which leads to positivity: equality, justice, love, peace and happiness.
Consciousness is always evolving. If I told you 20 years ago that the president of the United States would be a minority, you would probably have thought I was out of my mind. Our countries recent history has been plagued with lynchings and murders of minorities committed by the KKK and other ignorant minds….but it only took a short time for most people to realize how ignorant they once were. It’s 2011 and America as a nation has voted a half black president into office. It’s only a matter of time before we consciously evolve into a global civilization which has shed its ignorance and is ready for the next link in their evolutionary chain.
