I feel we need an explanation of what is being talked about by those people who feel/think the world is ending. The world is the society/culture that has been produced by the humans on this planet. This is indeed changing and will be doing so more drastically as we approach 2012. If we are talking about the earth or our planet there is no question that this is ending in any way, we are but tiny specs of insignificance compared to the life of our planet Earth in the universal energy continuum, it would never be allowed. In order to understand the whole 2012 issue then multi dimensional thinking is required, drop the 3D and begin to investigate the 4th and 5th dimensional states and it will become clearer. This renaissance that we are a part of is about raising up our level of consciousness to meet the new world awaiting us. Your world may end but you can choose to be part of a better world of oneness.
