If the world ends in 2012, you will be:
Apocalypse, what does it mean?
For centuries, people around the world have been predicting that the end of the world will come in 2012. Some people use the fact that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012 as proof that the world will come to an end at this given time. Astrologers say that 2012, according to the stars there will be a shift in the universal mind and a united consciences. These astrologist say this is the coming of the age of Aquarius. Many other Indigenous cultures around the world also have prophecies about centering around this time in the world.
Let's look at this in a deeper aspect. Let's start 3000BC, around this time is when it's is thought that the Mayans believe this to be the beginning of the world. The Maya culture has a story about creation. In their creation the Heart of the Sky creates people out of mud but the people were not right and the destroyed the earth, so the heart of the sky brought forth a storm to destroy them and the world. Next the world is recreated and the people are made of wood, they cut down the trees and begin destroying the earth, so the heart of the sky destroys them with a flood. On the third try the people are made of corn and these people were aware of all that was around them, they were wise and knew of everything, the Gods blew a mist in their eyes to give them limited vision. The people of corn is what this "generation" of people are here on Earth at the present time.
According to the Christian Bible the World was destroyed at least twice that I am aware of in scriptures. The first version of World is thought to have been destroyed by the first flood, before that of the Noah's flood. The second time the world was destroyed was by a flood during the time of Noah. According to the Bible we are also the third "generation" of people on the earth. When the Bible uses the word world insert the word age instead.
Given that these town accounts of the history of Earth and it's worlds are similar could it be true that there is going to be a dawn of a new age? Are we working our way to the Apocalypse? In certain scriptures Jesus says "until the end of Ages" is this what is happening now? I am not one to by into conspiracies theories but when different societies on different sides of the world are saying the same thing, is possible that the information came from a greater and more reliable source?
What are we suppose to do? Well personally since Jesus said the "ages" and "age" I hoping that we have another thousand of years through the duration of the age of Aquarius to try to get it right, and maybe the guy writing the Mayan calender got tired or died during his work or even better he thought someone else would be able to continue it in the future. Another thing that puzzles me is if the Mayans had weeks ranging from 13 to 20 days, would 2012 be an accurate year still or did they convert it to our systems of weeks and months before they shared the 2012 as our doom with the world?
Apocalypse comes from the Greek word apokalupsis which simply to uncover. So maybe we are to uncover a new way of thinking. What if we are simply going to connect to a higher conscience?
I do believe though that we need to shift the way that we think. Did you realize that not only are we running out of fossil fuels but also we are running out of drinkable water. Can you guess who is buying up water rights in Texas? (and yes I said water rights) Oil conglomerate T. Boon Higgins. Water is most likely going to become more expensive than oil in the future...
We should be looking for new green ways to conserve our natural resources without all of the extra chemicals that we just love to add to things. Solar energy, windmills to generate energy, heating sources that use minimal amounts of oil and electricity, and things such as the eco-machines to purify water. We should start finding ways to grow our own food with harsh pesticides and resource eating machinery. I am not saying let's all become tree-hugging-hippies but we should start thinking about our situation and how to make it better. If the world doesn't end in 2012 and we are just supposed to shift our way of thinking on a global perspective would you like to be left without water?
Even if the world is to end in 2012, there is a song that I will leave you with that just embodies the way I feel about the situation.
